Import Folder

Hey everyone,

sorry if this question has been answered before, but i couldn't find the answer when i looked.

Is there anyway to choose a folder where all my movies are (each one under a subfolder with the name of the folder being the name of the movie) and GCstar searches and creates the catalogue automatically or do i have to add each and every movie one by one?

Thank you,

Re: Import Folder

Hi,

Yes, there is the Folder Import plugin, it does exactly that.

it had to be improved, but i think that's what you're looking for.

Cos udner File->Import i dont have the option "Folder"

Only possibilities are: Alexandria, AMC, CSV, DVDProfiler, GCFilm, GCStar, Filelist, .tar.gz, and Tellico

I have version 1.3.2 running.

Thanks in advance

Re: Import Folder

Hello,

Could you help me ?

I have ubuntu (intrepid) with last GCstar (1.4.3 downloaded thanks to getdeb).
I started gcstar in a terminal : gcstar.
comics collection
file->import->folder
extensionq : *.cbz
I give the name of the directory
create a new collection (obligatory choice)
import

=> in terminal
*** unhandled exception in callback:
***   Can't locate object method "new" via package "GCExtract::GCcomicsExtracter" (perhaps you forgot to load "GCExtract::GCcomicsExtracter"?) at /usr/bin/../lib/gcstar/GCModel.pm line 1378.
***  ignoring at /usr/bin/gcstar line 305.

=> always in waiting state.

With book collection :

=>
*** unhandled exception in callback:
***   Can't locate object method "new" via package "GCExtract::GCbooksExtracter" (perhaps you forgot to load "GCExtract::GCbooksExtracter"?) at /usr/bin/../lib/gcstar/GCModel.pm line 1378.
***  ignoring at /usr/bin/gcstar line 305.

PS : I am french,  sorry for my english.

Re: Import Folder

Hello,

I' new here smile I like the program very much. It's very usefull. Here is what I want to do:

I have folder called MOVIES which contains subfolders for every movie. The folders have the correct movie title as directory name. So if I'm adding the folder to GCStar, I want to place the cover image, if it was found by GCstart in IMDB, in the movie folder. I want to do this for my Western Digital TV player, that can display covers. Can someone help me, to modify the importfolder plugin that way?

Re: Import Folder

Yeah there is no GCcomicsExtractor.  You can make a blank one pretty easily since there is nothing really in comic files to extract anyway.  Try this:

Code:

package GCExtract::GCExtractComics;

use strict;
use GCExtract;

{
    package GCExtract::GCcomicsExtracter;
    use base 'GCItemExtracter';
    
    sub new
    {
        my $proto = shift;
        my $class = ref($proto) || $proto;
        my $self  = $class->SUPER::new(@_);
        bless ($self, $class);

        return $self;
    }
    
    sub getInfo
    {
        my $self = shift;
        my $result;
        return $result;
    }
    
    sub getFields
    {
        return [];
    }
}

You till need to mess with the code to import a folder to actually extract something useful from the file title.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
