How to get Movies tab

Post by jabr35 » 21 May 2017, 16:17

How to get movies tab
Sorry for this newbie question.
I have added a data source to access my movies which are located on a NAS. However, I can only access the movies through video-files.
How can I index my movies and have them presented in the Movies tab?

During the data source setup you tell it to use a movies scraper. It then matches to an online database and you'll get a movies "tab" in the home menu.

At least I think that's what will happen. I use Plex these days. :)

Unforturnately, I did not find a field in the data source setup screen to use a movies scraper.

From main menu, I do the following:
Add video
Browse
On browse for new share screen, I selec UpNP devices.
Select NAS presented
Select directory and click OK.
On Add video source screen, I can Browse, add, enter video source name, clock on or Cancel.
I select OK.

I'm not sure what I can do differently to have the movies tab.

Thank you.

Looks like this, right?

Just change it to movies and select universal scraper on the right, or try others if you like

How do I get to the set content screen after I have added my upnp device source?

if you've already added a source:

1) select the source in the files section. long hold the main siri remote button until a context menu pops up.
2) select edit source
3) click OK - this will take you to the next screen in editing the source
4) here is where you select the scraper "this directory contains" should be changed to movies or TV shows, whatever it is. Click OK when you're done
5) It'll want to scan and match, so let it do it, click OK or whatever to continue with the process.

Upnp might be different, you can only set source on directories

you're right. can't add a scraper for UPnP sources.
