Movie XML Template

has anyone here got a basic xml template that they can share with me? i’ve got a handful of movies that won’t be found using the normal scraping process so would like to generate my own xml file.

i need something like this

i’ve tried to edit a wdtv generated file with xml editor but there is a ton of junk in there and not being too familiar with the whole process, i thought i’d stick to the basics above :smiley:

I would suggest you the Software WDTVHubGen. The xml files generated there can be used for SMP as well. And you can search with imdb IDs.

thanks for your replies and the template above. i tried the WDTVHubGen yesterday but couldn’t work out how to create a xml from scratch rather than scraping for the data. so searched some more and came across this

which i tested for 1 of my movies and seems to work ok. even though it is called ‘WDTV Live Hub XML-Editor’ i can’t see a reason why it wouldn’t work with smp. what do others think?

i’ve only got a handful of titles that i need to create my own xml for so looks like this will do the trick.
