Version v4.1

9 minute read

+ License changes - Now there is a FREE and PRO version of tinyMediaManager. In the FREE version there is no more limitation of loaded movies/TV shows or API calls.

The FREE version includes:

  • base functionality of tinyMediaManager (update data sources, scrape, write/read NFO files, rename, edit, export, command line interface, …)
  • TMDB scraper

The PRO version includes also:

  • all other scrapers (IMDB, OMDB, Universal, Kodi, …)
  • trailer download
  • subtitle download
  • integration

+ BIG scraper rework:

We split up all scrapers into individual sub-scrapers for every scope (meta data, artwork, trailer, subtitle). This offers new options to configure them:

  • now they are all independently configurable (no setting for the movie section influences the TV show section)
  • we could strip out options which are not needed for the actual section (e.g. TV show options in the movie scraper)
  • they have a better code base for future changes
  • separated country setting for certifications and release date
    The only drawback here is, that you may have to enter some options (like an individual API key) in every sub-scraper
    ATTENTION: since almost everything changed in the scraper setup, you may need to re-set the scraper options after the update
