Command Line Utilty - mc_com.exe

The app needs to be run from your main Media Companion folder since it needs some of the same libraries to function.

If Renaming of TV Episodes or Movies is set in Media Companion, mc_com.exe will also rename upon finding new files.


-m (search for new movies)
-e (search for new episodes)
-ex (scan and download missing episode thumbnails)
-p (set the profile to use)
-v (no console window, Output to mc_com.log file)
-x (create a list of movie info ie. HTML, XML, or CSV)
-d (shows trailer download progress to console. Ignored if -v specified)
