tinyMediaManager v4.2 is a big release with several noteworthy changes.

First of all, you may have noticed that TheTVDB is closing their free API v3 (October 1, 2021) and changing to a subscription based model ( This means that our users would need to have a subscription at TheTVDB to get data from their service. To avoid this we managed to negotiate a contract with TheTVDB to allow all PRO users to continue using this service without any additional subscription needed!

Third party scrapersPermalink
We introduced a new plugin based model which allows other developers to create third party scrapers for tinyMediaManager. Such a third party scraper can be placed into a special folder in the tinyMediaManager installation and will be loaded the next time tinyMediaManager starts. For more information about the new plugin system, see the corresponding post.

Windows installer, macOS disk image and Docker imagePermalink
To support even more systems (and easier installation), we added a Windows installer, a disk image (DMG) and a Docker image (for headless installs on servers).

Post processingPermalink
A new feature called post processing can be used to trigger external tools with data from your media library. Since this is being done with JMTE you have a wide range of possibilities using this feature. For more information please read the following blog post.

Lock fields on scrapePermalink
While scraping, you can lock existing data in several fields from being overwritten. See the blog post for more information.

Regular expression based skip foldersPermalink
In addition of add skip folders using the full path, you are now able to add regular expressions to skip folders from the “update data sources” scan. See the blog post for more information.

(tinyMediaManager and Kodi use the release date to sort)
