Command line arguments

With r965 it is possible to do some common tasks via the command line. To start tinyMediaManager via the command line, there is a new executeable/shellscript for your system:
Windows: tinyMediaManagerCMD.exe
Linux/OSX: tinyMediaManagerCMD.sh (note: on OSX it is inside the tinyMediaManager.app)

Execute without any parameter, to display syntax.

available parameters:

  • -updateMovies … update movie datasources and add new movies/files to the database
  • -updateMoviesX … replace X with 1-9 - just updates a single movie datasource; ordering like GUI
  • -updateTv … update TvShow datasources and add new TvShows/episodes to the database
  • -updateTvX … replace X with 1-9 - just updates a single TvShow datasource; ordering like GUI
  • -update … update all (short for ‘-updateMovies -updateTv’)
  • -scrapeUnscraped … scrape unscraped movies
  • -scrapeNew … auto-scrape (force best match) new found movies/TvShows/episodes from former update(s)
  • -renameNew … rename & cleanup of the new found movies/TvShows/episodes
  • -checkFiles … does a physical check, if all files in DB are existent on filesystem (might take long!)

NOTE: if you start tinyMediaManager this way, you won’t get an UI or updates! Please check for updates with the normal executeable to stay up to date
