i love anime and i am not alone.

but truth is i haven’t watched an anime in like months. this might be due the fact that there is no decent way of “getting” animes, if you are a lazy person. i think the anime plugin has stopped development (because of no development to XDM itself) but after i get XDM around this shall be my first plugin to work on.

i mean i am going to work on the “Anime MediaTypeManager” and some “Anime Provider” (the fanzub Indexer should still be working). After that i shall make more anime specific filters.

ps i know NzbDrone has support for anime by now.

Fork me on GitHub

i got some free time

i don’t know if anyone is still using this and because i haven’t coded for it in a long time i am just going to merge the dev branch to master in the next days it might all break and what not but i need some point to start from :/

if you thought this project is dead and deserted it, thats okay. personally i still use it exclusively and it does its job pretty good … but of course there are issues that i noticed myself and thats what i’ll be working on. like the different scheduler task die and it just stops searching of checking downloads.



Path vs site < 0.5.15.xx

in versions 0.5.15 and above the module / library handling has changed this might break some plugins !

if you are missing some plugins reinstall them new version should work

what changed is that all external libraries are now added to the python path with the site module

so most plugins doing something like this

from lib import requests
should now do this
import requests


TV, Trakt and PostProcessing

TV plugin is now available in the in the Main Plugin Repo

And so is a Trakt Provider for TV. And a special PostProcessor called Episode Mover that accepts a python format string. Currently only one root/parent Folder for all TV Shows is supported.

I would also advice that you set the Default status of TV to “ignore” otherwise XDM will go haywire and start searching snatching.

First snatch on a TV show :)

XDM snatched a single episode and you can see the available stuff for each episode. For the quality setting i simply used the Movie Quality plugin (which i might rename). Technically you can assign each single episode / season a different setting. and of course the retry on failed is also working for episodes.


i was bored to i started TV support.

the info is there now what kind of GUI would you like ? … Anyway i am tinkering…

latest version:

XDM tv5

old version:


XDM tv4

Slow development

Sorry that the development has been slowed down in the past two weeks. Its because i am in a new full time job… Horray… But XDM is still at the top top of my list!

No more images

With version 0.4.16 the image name creation is fixed / changed and now the movie images have a different name. You will need to refresh each movie to get the image back.

No mass update at this point sorry.
