This Python script convert an Ant Media Catalog ( to metadata for the MytVideo? plugin, including covers.

Even though AMC is Win32 only, it work fine under Wine and its power resides in the number of scripts available for fetching movies information in various languages.

Your AMC database must be saved in XML format for this to work.

If you specify, in AMC, in the Media Label field, a filename starting with "FILE:", the script will consider the movie as online and will add/update the MythVideo? metadata for the given filename.

Otherwise, a dummy ".dvd" file will be created (containing the xml informations from AMC). For them to appear in MythVideo?, you have to define the .dvd extensions in the configuration. You are the free to use whatever script to instruct the mounting of your DVD.
