When I try to search for new Metadate in Infuse and search for “Animatrix”. I can not find anything. When I try to search on thetvdb.com. There I can find what I´m looking for. Can someone help me here?
Welcome to the forum!
First, Infuse has switched to using TMDB for all metadata now.
Can you provide an example of exactly how you have a couple of the files named?
Thanks! I tried many different names… “Matrix S01EX…”, “The Matrix S01EX…” and I tried to change in manually and searching with the keyword Animatrix. There is no match in Infuse. What am I doing wrong? How can I proof, the Series is included in TMDB? If I search on the site, I can just find it as a Movie, not as a tv series with episodes. Is maybe this the reason?
The Animatrix is actually a collection of short feature films, not a TV series,
What TVDB had as Animatrix S01E01 is actually the feature film “Final Flight of the Osiris” from 2003.
If you rename the Animatrix S01E01 to “Final Flight of the Osiris 2003.ext” it should find it on TMDB. Also TMDB has set this as a Collection so Infuse will show all 9 movies under the collections tab in the Library as “The Animatrix Collection”
I have tried your proposed solution, but unfortunately it did not work here. I have renamed the folder name to “Final Flight of the Osiris 2003” and renamed all the files to “Final Flight of the Osiris 2003 S01E0x.ext”. Ca I try something more?
There is no “S01E0X” each of what you currently have labeled as episodes is actually a stand along movie. for example, what you have as “The Animatrix S01E01 Final Flight of the Osiris.mkv” should be renamed " Final Flight of the Osiris 2003.mkv" This will pull the correct info from TMDB for each movie.
You don’t need a folder since Infuse will use the collections info from TMDB to show you this as a collection in the Library > movie > Collections view.
Thank you for your patience! Inow renamed the file as you say and voila, there is the right cover and Metadata when I go to the file in the browser (folder icon in Infuse on my iPhone). But how can Ifind it on the Mainpage? There are just categories like “unwatched”, all movies", “all tv shows”. If I go to the search page (magnifying glass symbol) there are some more categories. I have the german version, so I hope I can translate them right… There is one category (Sammlungen). I think it must be “collections”. but I can not find the Animatrix movies there. And by the way, I have changed alle the file names of the Animatrix-Episodes to the teir Title names. For example “The Second Renaissance Part I”. Without doing this, there was just Metadata in the only one file we talked about: “Final Flight of the Osiris”.
