This section contains all movie related settings for tinyMediaManager.
Visible columns: choose which columns should be visible in the movie view.
Persist UI filters: when this is active, the filter set in the movie view will be stored and load on tinyMediaManager start up.
Build image cache on import: when importing new movies into tinyMediaManager you can create the image cache on the fly (only available when the image cache is enabled in the general settings). Caution: building the image cache will take a while
Prefer runtime from media info: when activating this setting, the movie runtime is being taken directly from your movie file rather than the scraper
Automatic sync with Trakt.tv: if you have enabled access to Trakt.tv, you are able to automatically sync your media library and watched state with Trakt.tv. Is that option is disabled, you have to manually trigger the synchronization process
Source: This is the core setting of the movie section. Every folder specified in this list will be search for movie files. To enable all possible options in tinyMediaManager, every movie should be in its own directory. Having multiple movies per folder is also supported, but will deactivate some features! To achieve the best possible experience, make sure you have a similar setup (e.g. H:\movies is one data source set in the settings):
H:\movies Aladdin Aladdin.avi movie.nfo sample sample.avi Alice in Wonderland Alice.in.Wonderland.mkv movie.nfo fanart.jpg poster.jpg Cars Cars.avi ...
Allow multiple movies per folder: activating this enables the legacy support for multiple movies inside one folder. Having multiple movies per folder disables some features!
Exclude folders from scan: Every folder in this list will be excluded from scan. You can also put a file called .tmmignore into every folder you wish to have excluded from the scan.
NFO format: There is support of Kodi and MediaPortal NFO formats. Choosing the right format affects importing of existing NFOs as well as writing new data to NFO files
NFO file naming: You can choose between different file formats for the NFO files
movie.nfo (only works within "one movie per folder" scheme)
VIDEO_TS / VIDEO_TS.nfo or BDMV / index.nfo
In this list you can choose your preferred metadata scraper from a list of all available scrapers.
Preferred language: Choose the preferred language for scraping (for localized content)
Certification country: Movie certifications are available for several countries. You can choose for which country tinyMediaManager should try to get the certification.
Fall back to other scrapers: If nothing has been found with your preferred scraper, try to search with other scrapers
Metadata scrape defaults
Here you can set which types of metadata should be scraped per default
Prefer language over resolution when choosing images: If the desired artwork size has not been found in the desired language, take a lower size with the preferred language rather than a bigger artwork in another language
When doing an automatic scrape, tinyMediaManager calculates a score of every found movie. 1.0 means the search term and the search result are 100% the same whereas 0.0 means they are absolutely different. With this setting you can set the threshold starting of which score tinyMediaManager should take the found movie.
Poster and Fanart
In this list you can enable all wanted artwork scrapers from a list of all available scrapers.
Poster size: Choose the preferred poster size. tinyMediaManager will try to get the poster in this size (and the chosen language). If it’s not available an image from the other sizes will be taken.
Fanart size: Choose the preferred fanart size. tinyMediaManager will try to get the fanart in this size (and the chosen language). If it’s not available an image from the other sizes will be taken.
Poster file naming: Choose the file name which shall be taken for posters
movie filename + extension of the original image file
movie filename + -poster + extension of the original image file

Enable extrathumbs: This option allows you to store multiple thumbs to the extrathumbs folder inside the movie folder.
Resize extrathumbs to (width): With this option you are able to scale down the extrathumbs to a given width.
Maximum of downloaded images on automatic scraping: in addition to choose the extrathumbs by hand (image chooser dialog) you can automatically download extrathumbs. This option let you choose how much extrathumbs will be downloaded per movie.
Enable extrafanarts: This option allows you to store multiple fanarts to the extrafanarts folder inside the movie folder.
Maximum of downloaded images on automatic scraping: in addition to choose the extrafanarts by hand (image chooser dialog) you can automatically download extrafanarts. This option let you choose how much extrafanarts will be downloaded per movie.
Download actor images to .actors: Kodi supports reading of actor images from the (hidden) folder .actors inside the movie directory. If you enable this option, all available actor images will be downloaded to this folder upon scraping the movie.
Store movie set artwork in each movie folder: Allow tinyMediaManager to store a copy of the movie set artwork in each assigned movie folder.
Store movie set artwork in a separate folder: In addition with the Kodi plugin Movie Set Artwork Automator tinyMediaManager allows to store the artwork for movie sets in this folder. Here you have to choose an direct path to the folder (it is not set per datasource!). E.g: H:\MoviesetArtwork
In this list you can enable all wanted trailer scrapers from a list of all available scrapers.
Use preferred trailer settings: Rather than choosing the first available trailer, you can set your preferred trailer source (e.g. Youtube) and trailer quality (e.g. 1080p).
Automatic trailer download: Upon scraping, also download the chosen trailer to your movie folder if no local trailer has been found
Renamer pattern and options
File and Folder name: Choose the desired file and folder name for renaming. Here you can enter fixed parts of the folder name and dynamic ones. You will find a list of all available tokens for building up dynamic names beneath the settings along with examples of your media library. With leaving the file/folder name empty, the renamer will skip the name generation for the empty part.
Replace spaces with: You can replace all spaces with either underscores, dots or dashes by activation this option
Also create a movie set folder for movie sets containing only one movie: Unless this is activated, the renamer only create a movie set folder if there is more than one movie in the set
Replace non ASCII characters with their basic ASCII equivalents: Some file systems might need to have ASCII conform file names - by activating this option tinyMediaManager tries to convert non ASCII characters into a similar ASCII character (e.g. Ä - Ae; ß - ss, ...)
remove all other NFOs: Remove all non tinyMediaManager NFOs when renaming (clean up)

Some hits for the renamer:

All supported files within the movie folder (NFO, poster, fanart, …) will be renamed as configured (in the last section)
