About This File

A tool to import movies and tv show episodes into LaunchBox.

You'll need to apply for a TMDb API v3 key in order to use the application.

Trailers for movies and theme songs for tv shows can optionally be downloaded in case a YouTube Data API key is supplied.



  1. finds all the movie files in the given directory + subdirectories
  2. fetches the movie title + year based on the filename
  3. queries TMDb for the release date, synopsis, actual title and a backdrop and poster image
  4. automatically generates / fills an .xml-file in the launchbox/data/platforms folder
  5. downloads images to the 'Box - Front' and 'Fanart - Background' folders
  6. optional trailer download
  7. (all the required and optional keys are freely available)



What's New in Version 1.5.0   See changelog


Added the option to download clear logos from FANART.TV.

Fixed bug that broke the xml when no releasedate was found.

Added a video quality option for trailers.

Can you make a tutorial or video on how to set this up for launchbox?  I can't get this show the trailers or the covers or anything.  I have got the keys but I am not sure what I am doing wrong to get the to work correctly.
