Mac guys, do any of you know of an .nfo file generator that pulls IMDB info for movies?

Man I would've answered this a long time ago, but I have no idea. Have you already tried looking around at versiontracker.com?

Yeah, I've searched far and wide and have found nothing. I start a programming class soon...so maybe I can try to write the program I need as a learning project?


Unless somebody here will make one :)

It's an xml file that contains all of the information about something. For movies or TV shows it would have information such as title, series number (Ep1, 2, 3 etc), synopsis, cast, etc, etc, etc.

They are really helpful if you get shoddy results from the automatic IMDB scrapers in XBMC or Plex. For instance, my Star Trek films never appear in the right order.

Those are the ones you typically get with *acquired* media.

They can be xml files as well :)

anyone who uses XML should get punched in the nuts, unless an app you use can read the files it's stupid

Erm...yes....all XBMC based media centers can read the xml files, as well as....well.....a ton of other programs.

It should be fairly simple to grab the XML. Are you looking for a person-friendly editor/renamer? Strictly OS X, or iOS too? I have a proof-of concept test program to write, and this might be a "useful" task.

Strictly OS X, and with the user friendly OS X/Cocoa "feel".

I would be soooooo appreciative if you take this project on, and I'll offer to help and test where I can.
