pytivometa is a script to create the metadata that pytivo (http://pytivo.org/, https://github.com/wmcbrine/pytivo) can use when serving media files from a computer to a TiVo. It fetches metadata from https://www.thetvdb.com/ and http://www.imdb.com to create text files and put them in the proper place (near the associated video files) for pytivo to find them.
pytivometa requires Python 3. Make sure Python 3 is installed on your system.
To install required modules for pytivometa to work, execute the following command:
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
On Windows, you may need to run pip3 from a command prompt in "run as administrator" mode (right-click on the Command Prompt in the Start Menu and select "Run as Administrator") to allow the installation of new python modules.
To run, execute
pytivometa.py in the
pytivometa directory from the
command line. Be sure to keep all the files in the
together in the same directory.
Based on the original pytivometathis by Graham Dunn and later Josh Harding (https://sourceforge.net/projects/pytivometathis/). This version has been ported to python3 and extensively modified.
