the plugin will now scan the movies directory for nfo files and image file. these files are generally used by Kodi to display the movie information. it will also match the title to the Movie title in Kodi so "Angry Birds 2016 1080p BluRay x264 DTS-JYK.mkv" will become "The Angry Birds Movie".
if the plugin is not finding the media that is already in Kodi try to export your video library to separate files. Go to Settings> Media>Libary>Export Media and then select Separate.
you will now be presented with a form that allows you to select the correct movie if there are multiple movies with a similar name. if only one movie is found it will go ahead and grab the information without needing a selection.
