NMTWATCHD is series watch daemon It will index your downloaded episodes and present them in a nice HTML page and offer playback, archiving and automatic moving of downloaded episodes to the proper series directory.
If you watch a lot of series/cartoons or documentaries on your NMT, and you have more of them then you can keep track of, this tool is for you.
NMTWATCHD is a tool that came into existence when I grew tired of swapping directories in my Networked Media Tank browser in order to get the next episode of a series to watch. I like neatly seperated series and when you have a couple of them, you can lose oversight, and forget to watch some of them because you get tired of swapping between them.
It will display from each series or documentary, the episode that you need to watch next. The sort order is alphabetically which means as long as the episodes on disk are sorted properly by default, nmtwatchd will pick the first one (which is the one you should watch) and list this one on a HTML page, together with all other series which you still need to watch.
It does the following things;
- It indexes all series directories from a specified base directory
- It categorizes them by series name, and if preferred even by a seperate category
- From every series, the last unwatched episode will be taken and displayed on a HTML page
- After playing it, you can archive the episode, which moves it to an episodes.seen directory
- After that the next episode is shown on top, etc.
- In front of every episode, you will see how many episodes there are left of that series
Extra features are;
- It can watch a download directory, and if an episode file in the download dir matches a mask, it will move this episode to the proper series directory automatically
- The files that are moved, can be pruned of "garbage" text making it more readable and shorter on screen
- The history log will tell you what is moved to where, what is archived, and which episodes you deleted yourself
- The move status page will tell you how much episodes could not be moved (yet) and need attention
- The main view has a statistics part where you can see how many series are listed, how many episodes there are to view, how many are archived (or removed), and how many still need moving
- If a series has a new episode, or you archived the last one, that series is put on top in it's category which will provide a recent watched list. It also shows clearly which series are updated
