Revision History

Reviews for this release

I have only just started using this but so far it is very nice. I have not had any issues at all. It is replacing the mostly defunct Ember Media Manager for me and I am happy with it so far. I would like to see options to customize the file names that it saves (for non-XBMC people) and maybe even options to choose what info gets saved (fields).

This really is the perfect companion to XBMC. It scrapes only what is required and does an excellent job in doing so. I've been using this build for a number of weeks and have run into next to no problems at all. After using multiple different software titles to organise my library I can safely say that I have found what I've been looking for to handle my media requirements. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is due to being a beta and a couple of things not working as they should such as the XBMC link connecting to a remote Raspberry Pi for example. This is a feature I'd be interested in using although apart from that there isn't anything bad I can say about this software. If you have a large library of Movies and TV Shows then this software is a MUST !!! Great work so far and I very much look forward to what the future brings for this fantastic piece of software.
