The description of this sub-forum is:

"A place for developers to advertise their TheTVDB.com enabled app and get help from other developers with the API."

It seems to me that the former (advertising TheTVDB.com-enabled apps) gets lost among the latter.

I would like to know what existing apps are out there, already... particularly those that are open-source, since (a) no matter how good they are, I'll probably want to change them somewhat, and (b) I really don't like executing random binaries on my machine.

I don't know how the mods would feel about this, but I'd like it if anyone who knows of existing projects would add it to this thread, or a similar thread created for that purpose, and ideally, that thread could be made sticky.

We don't really maintain a list of people who use our site. Plex/Kodi/XBMC is one of the biggest users but there's tons of others.

Sure, I wasn't asking for you to maintain it. It would be up to the users to maintain it. I was just thinking it would be good to have a kind of designated place to do so.

Why not use this thread for just that purpose? ;)

EDIT: With the understanding that, logistically, we can't officially endorse nor support the apps listed, of course; links to the project support sites are appreciated, and any further assistance we may provide is wholly at our discretion. That said, users are totally welcome to assist one another; I'm strongly considering a hands-off "Users Helping Users" subforum for just that purpose.

I am working on a program that looks over the files you specify, tries to figure out which show, season, and episode it represents, and allow you to rename the files in a way that is customizable by the user. It is a Java application that is using the XML API. It's open-source and we'd love some help. Here is the github link:


Again, it's using the old API. If anyone would like to upgrade it to the new API, that would be a huge help.

I can add TV Rename to the list:

It's in the process of being updated to the new API

I'd like to add a new one I'm about to release called "TheTVDB Connection" app.

At the moment I'm working on two interrelated python projects which make use of the v2 API-- feedback is welcomed.


mapi - https://github.com/jkwill87/mapi

mapi (Metadata API) is a python 2/3 library which provides a high-level interface for media database providers, allowing users to search for television and movie metadata using a simple interface.


mnamer - https://github.com/jkwill87/mnamer

mnamer (Metadata Renamer) intelligent and highly configurable CLI media organization utility. This is a work in progress intended to replace and extend tvnamer (https://github.com/dbr/tvnamer) which uses the v1 API.
