Yep, that's what I just found out as well. Works for posters and screenshots but not for covers. This seems to be a bug.

I noticed that only actors with a role assigned were imported. So I updated the configuration by adding another source field for the actor. This time with different properties. Et voila: actors without a role are imported as well now.

This is an export template to write the movie data back to an XML file for MediaPortals extension MovingPictures.

Scripts and Templates / Import from XBMC/MovPicNFO .nfo XML-File
« on: May 22, 2013, 08:14:27 pm »
This script is for importing movie data from an XML file like the .nfo files written by XBMC and the MediaPortal extension MovingPictures (done by MovPicNFO). It is currently configured to import the .nfo file from MovPicNFO which differs slightly from the XBMC definition. But the script is highly customizable so one should be able to configure it for XMBC with low effort.
If an XBMC version is requested, I am happy to configure one and upload it.

Comments are welcome. If you need any support, do not hesitate to ask.

I do not know, wich version you are using, but with copy from clipboard functions very well. Just tested it. You have to be in edit mode though.

My next little script imports the viewed flag from a local file. The MediaPortal extension MovingPictures can save movie data to a local file via the program MovPicNFO and one will get .nfo files as from XBMC. The Status if a movie has been watched or not is not saved in that file, but may be saved in an extra file. For all people that do not track the viewing status via Trackt or and have the need to synchronize that status per file may find this script useful. OK, honestly, it probably turns out to be only me but who knows...

Script can be customized, read documentation in the script and have a look at,3352.msg16908.html#msg16908.

Scripts and Templates / Import Script for locally saved images
« on: May 22, 2013, 11:30:36 am »
For all folks that store movie posters and backdrops together with their films on the harddisk, I have written a litte script to import them into PVD. The script ist customizable so that you can choose what kind of images to Import (posters, screenshots, front covers, CD labels), how many of them, how they are named and where they are stored. Even the filetypes, depicted by the extension can be configured. You can use absolute paths like C:\Data\MyMovies\Images or relative paths based on the path to the movie file.

Hopefully its any use for somebody. Comments are welcome.

If you need help to customize the script or if you need any modifications made for your configuration, please let me know.

Well, there are some scripts for screenshots, but I do not use them. One is a russian version for kinopoisk (ÊèíîÏîèñê.Ru) the other one is filmtv. Both do not work for me, so I decided to do it manually. As I use MediaPortal on my HTPC with MovingPictures I proceed like described in this article (German only).
For my home made videos I use the built in functionality to take screenshots from the movie.

I am downloading them manually from TMDB ( to get only those I like, save them locally and import them afterwards.

Yep, I know, thanks anyway. I tried long time ago but results were not satisfying. Special characters made problems. I decided to use MovingPictures and that works well.

Did you have time to look at my other messages?

That would be great.

By the way I really appreciate your efforts. I am using MediaPortal and will change from MovingPictures to myFilms. Ant Movie Catalog is recommended but compared to PVD a lot of features are missing. Keep up the good work!

Currently I am working on scripts to read and write MovPicNFO .nfo files for the communicaton with the MovingPicutres plugin of MediaPortal. Later on I will provide a full functioning interface for myFilms to read and write directly to the AMC database.

When I select the movie folder for Import and start importing the movies, PVD automatically loads all pictures in the movie folder as covers. Is there a possibility to prevent this? I have written a script that will import only the relevant pictures later on and divides them in posters and screenshots.

Oh, I have just seen, that you have already posted an XBMC .nfo file. I will take that to make improvements.

Hi there,

I have attached the first draft of the .nfo Import script. It's far from ready but imports already all given fields and locally saved posters and backdrops. It workes for .nfo files created from MovPicNFO. If you can provide an XBMC .nfo file, I could make the necessary adjustments.

The Field number is 36. So I have tried

Code: [Select]
AddFieldValue( 36, '-1' );
That didn't work either.

I am frustrated!

-1 and 0 should be the correct values because they work with custom fields. We may have a bug here.

Development / Re: How to change "viewed" flag by script
« on: May 14, 2013, 05:24:46 pm »
Just to be sure:

AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', '-1' );
AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', '1' );
AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', '0' );
AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', 'True' );
AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', 'true' );
AddFieldValueXML( 'viewed', ' ' );

This is the command I am using. I replaced all variables by direct values. None of the variants works. Maybe it's because of the data type. The flag is boolean. Same as "wish" and "loan". "wish" doesn't work either.
Does anybody know the field number so I can try the deprecated command:
AddFieldValue( )?
