Kodi Tracker + Sync addon

643285.jpg

Hi everyone, 

We're back with some more exciting news for those who use Kodi as their media center.
We've been working on a tracker (scrobbler) addon that lets you sync what you're watching between Kodi and TVmaze.

Huh, scrobble/track what does that even mean?

Scrobbling/tracking means that it automatically tracks what you’re watching. 
Normally on TVmaze you can manually mark what you've watched on the calendar/watchlist or episode list. But with this Kodi addon you can automatically track on TVmaze which episodes you've watched in the Kodi media center.

Here's a list of what the addon does:

  • Performs an initial sync between Kodi and TVmaze for episodes you've watched.
  • When you add an episode to the Kodi library, it instantly marks it as "acquired" on TVmaze.
  • When you watch an episode in Kodi, it instantly marks it as "watched" in TVmaze.
  • When you mark an episode as watched on TVmaze, it marks it as watched in Kodi (after sync)

 

What is Kodi?

Kodi is one of the biggest media centers on the web. It's an open source application for streaming media content and completely free.
It can play various types of media such as videos and music. The service doesn’t provide any of its own media. Instead, it catalogs locally saved files, dvds, cd's and other sources from the internet. More detailed info here (wikipedia).

 

What is TVmaze? (if you don't know us yet)

TVmaze is one of the web's most extensive TV information databases. We are a large community of people with a big heart for tv/web shows that curate all of the info available. Additionally TVmaze provides tools and features to keep track of your shows such as detailed calendars/watchlist/countdown/...  

 

How to Install the addon:

Step 1) You can find the TVmaze Tracker addon in the Kodi Repository in 'Program add-ons' (Or install it manually)

Step 2) Once the addon has been installed, and you run the tracker for the first time, it will ask for authorization in order to sync with your TVmaze account.

Step 3) Authorize the addon using the qr code or url

Gotta say, I completely forgot about reporting my issues on Github but now that the addon got updated to v1.0.1, syncing seems to be working just fine.

10/10 addon!

Thanks for this addon.  I look forward to trying it out.  A related note for Kodi and TVmaze users:  For those who are unfamiliar with MythTV, it is DVR software and compatible with Kodi.  Kodi can be used to view recordings and live TV from a computer in your home with MythTV installed.  The Kodi frontend for MythTV is an official Kodi addon.  Mythrecmaze is a small program that allows TVmaze users to automatically have MythTV record the the shows they are following on TVmaze.

In this version you can't. We'll take what you've said as a feature request.

It should work for anyone even without premium.

That's good to hear, I need to figure out if it's the Mi TV Stick that's the problem or my +6k TV episodes.

If you're having issues, it's advised that you create a case in the repo and provide an error log so that Roman can look into it.

Ah, will do.

Since authentication works just fine but syncing doesn't, does this only work for Premium users or is the issue on my end?
