As the successor of PoisonProcess, the main goal is to integrate your downloaded videos (movies, tv-shows) into your media library. It tries to extract the title of the videos out of the filename and NZB-name and performs an imdb search to verify it.
Why an imdb search?
Often when you download videos, the filenames do not exactly represent the title of the movie/tv-show. This makes it hard for your media client (e.g. Kodi) to download the right meta data. By considering the nzb-filename and the filenames of the downloaded videos, MediaCenterPal extracts several possible title combinations and performs an imdb search with them. Subsequently, the imdb results get matched back to the filename through several algorithms and the best one is chosen.
This method works far better than the method used in PoisonProcess! The cool thing is if your native language is not english, you can set your language as an option in the NZBGet webinterface. Every language that imdb supports is possible! Considering the fact, that imdb even contains video games, adding video game processing later on won’t be a difficult thing to do.
For example if the filename of your downloaded file is "got - s05e08", then the script will extract "got" as a title and send it to imdb. The search results however, will return "Game of Thrones", since GOT is listed as an aka title on imdb. Consequently, your video will get "Game of Thrones" assigned as a title which is pretty cool right?
MediaCenterPal is designed to integrate the downloaded videos into your media library. This means automatic detection of downloaded subtitles and pictures, creating season and movie folders etc. Once it got the title of the downloaded video, renaming subtitles to a specific format is no problem at all. You can even let MediaCenterPal determine the language of the subtitles and keep only the ones that you need. If your download is integrated into your media center, MediaCenterPal can be configured to refresh your Kodi-client and to send you a pushover notification.
Several other functionalities will be added in upcoming versions, like automatic file conversion with PoisonConvert or Plex refreshing.
Key functionalities summarized:
- automatic title detection
- detection and renaming of subtitles (language detection, detection of "forced" subtitles)
- detection and renaming of pictures
- enumeration of videos
- moving all detected files to your media library (creating necessary folders, etc…)
- cleaning up the download directory
- refreshing your Kodi client
- sending you a pushover notification
