| Adding videos to the library:
1. Naming files
Need to add videos such as home movies or other videos that are not normally found by XBMC's scrapers? Here's some solutions:
- Install the 'justUseTheFilename' scraper (manual install for now - working on it) and use that for the "Setting content" step of this guide. This simply add the videos to the library without any special info.
2 NFO files
- Add nfo files for each file - (helpful guide: Two guys who have successfully done it - one by movie, other as tv show)
- Here's a basic/bare minimal example of an NFO file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <movie> <title>Some title</title> <originaltitle>Some title just in case - you most likely dont need this either</originaltitle> <sorttitle>It will sort by this title if you include it</sorttitle> <genre>HomeMovies</genre> <id>-1</id> </movie>
- XBMC will only look at your NFO files ONCE. To refresh a lot of videos with custom NFO files (say, when you've updated the NFO file itself): Go into Files, and on the source you added for your custom videos - set content and pick <None>, then click OK. Then set content again as if you were adding them for the first time.
