Release Notes

Time for a beta! This is the first actual beta (I'd like to think of the last release as a preview) of MediaScout.
Since it is a huge change over the last version, there are lots of new bugs introduced. If you could report all of them, it'll help me getting it working better!

New Features (from TVScout 0.8)

  • Movie Metadata fetching
Using, MediaScout can help you fetch and manage metadata for movies as well
  • TV Management
More fine-grained control over your TV metadata and images, allowing you to select from available posters, banners and backdrops.
  • Auto-tron
Monitors a folder, fetching metadata and (optionally) renaming for you as soon as a file is dropped in!
Current limitation is it won't move it into season folders.
ie, drop a file into C:\videos\Heroes\Season 3\
  • Backdrop support
MediaBrowser now supports backdrops, so MediaScout does too!
  • Episode Poster Extracting
No episode "posters"? Thats okay, providing you've got the codecs installed on your system, a screenshot will be captured and written to file (at 25% of the way through the episode)


To do

  • "Single season", if a show only has one season, don't require a season folder, just process it in the root directory of that show
  • Editing boxes for Movies/TV shows so you can edit incorrect details or add details missing
  • Version checker
  • Caching. It has been removed as a better system will go in its place.
  • Undo. It's been removed so a better (database driven) system can go in its place.
  • Cancel button doesn't show/cancel. Just be careful with hitting fetch data too many times.
  • move threads for the movie list to improve loading times
