MARK YOUR MEDIA FILES

When using an embedded system as a media centre, you need to know about NFO files. The files keep track of the meta data for your titles. They’re XML files that contain information on the song, movie or other media that you’re accessing. For example, an XML file on a film will contain the title, run time and genre. Because it’s stored under a category tag, you can use it to list and sort your files. This makes it easier to find the media to suit the occasion.

The big media distributions use this format to store all this data. IMDB and other services use their own, but Kodi and similar make use of ready-made scripts to scrape data from the sites and convert it into NFO files. Once this is done you’ll have all the text, descriptions and artwork stored so you can enjoy an evening of entertainment.
