Linux Windows View on GitHub

Current Version: 0.1
Development Status: Beta


Run MDB on a folder or a set of files/folders and it downloads imdb data for all movie files found and shows it in a nice GUI.

You can then sort the movies by title, rating, runtime, releaseYear or Genre.

  • Runs on Windows and Linux
  • Uses threads and caching. Is super fast!
  • Works through http proxies
  • Automatically checks for updates
  • Automagically resolves file names like "Eva.2011.R5.XviD.VaLeBo.mkv"
  • No reason why you shouldn't be using it everyday! :)

Installation

Windows

Download the setup from here and run it to install.

Linux

MDB depends on wxPython; so before you run it, install wx.
Debian/Ubuntu based users can simply do this:
sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 && sudo apt-get install python-pip && sudo pip install MDB
		
Or else (if you don't wan't to use pip), download the tarball from here, extract it and run:
sudo python setup.py install
		

Usage

  • Right-click anywhere in a movie folder and select MDB!
    (On linux, you would have to select scripts->MDB in the right-click menu).
  • You can also right-click a file/folder
  • MDB also works through a HTTP proxy. Just navigate to File->preferences and enter your proxy settings as http://proxyhost:proxyport/

Coming soon

  • Support for downloading subtitles
  • Ability to search for title/director/actor/genre.
  • And much more...
