Right now there is one scraper - theMoviedB - great place to add movies and get going. However, if you wanto add your home movies to the Library so one can make playlists quickly, it is not possible. You ahve to add the files manually. The scraper I wrote is a great way for NOOBs or people who have to change playlists on a weekly or frequent basis to add home movies (or just 'movies' in general) to their playlists. Now they don't just get stuck using the file browser - they can use the Library 'right now'.

Can we add this as the second default scraper?

I suggest adding this to the official repository instead. Things that you'll want to do are:

  1. Probably use something other than .org in the metadata name (some might think you own
  2. Use lower-case characters for addon-id etc.
  3. Don't use spaces in filenames.
  4. The icon may not be acceptable - having words on it is usual not good (translation).

Additional discussion might revolve around the need to send info to (your?) server that transforms stuff before it comes back. A much better implementation would be extending the patch on trac that does everything within XBMC. After all, it's silly to have a webserver just return the filename back to XBMC...

This won't be merged into mainline, as we do not take on things that we don't maintain.

I wouldn't want my "by filename scraper" to be dependent on a php service running on Potential privacy issues and simply I don't see the point. Perhaps we need a binary addon that does this processing locally.
