[WS/Action] MediaCompanion to mp4


I've been using this for a couple of years, and thought to post here in case anyone wants to run with it further.
The action runs after running MediaCompanion, which generates a .xml file with the same filename as the video file. There are also companion files such as -poster.jpg.

The action does a few things:

  • Imports and places a copy of the .xml data inside the mp4 metadata
  • Goes over the (now internal) xml, and populates many of the key metadata, including the itunes specific ones (such as ITUNEXTC and ITUNMOVI).

I have taken some assumptions in my parsing due to my specific mediacompanion setup (e.g. one single genre, etc). Please feel free to take and make more robust, take in more data, etc.

Updated original post's attachment, as in some imdb pages the rating was formatted differently.
