Automatic Generation of XML metadata for ATVFiles

This application (based on AppleScript, PHP and mplayer) will traverse any given directory and search for movies. It will then make the XML files for ATVFiles, download subtitles (dutch only at the moment) and create a screenshot for series or download the cover for movies.

For movies, AppleTVdataMaker expects to have all movies in clean folders with as name the movie title (and if wanted the year between brackets), e.g. "Spider-Man 3 (2007)". To quickly scan the movies directory, just select the movies tab in appleTVdataMaker and select the "mother" directory. In my setup this one is called "Alphabetically".
