how to update cover art for videos command line

Post by mtrax » Thu Dec 26, 2019 8:17 am

I find its a bit tedious and sometimes hard to update the cover art using the front-end.
is it possible do do this from mythweb or backend command line instead?
eg if I know the imdb# ref can I update cover art myself?

Can I use something like this:

http://mythbox:6544/Video/UpdateVideoMe ... ref=389165

however this returns a 404 error.

Hi,

Endpoints that add/change/delete require a POST. The above suggests using a GET. Try:

Code: Select all

curl --data Id=3107 --data Title=MyMovie --data Inetref=389165 mythbox:6544/Video/UpdateVideoMetadata

ok that works now however it doesn't appear the api I'm looking for...
ie its not updating or downloading any coverart for the title as far as I can see.

I tried http://mythbox:6544/Video/LookupVideo?T ... ref=389165 but does this just return data from the moviedb?
