Tracker for media on Linux
7

I forget which was the last episode I stopped on while watching anime or TV shows, any way to track them?

I’ve tried using Kodi seems like an overkill for what I wanna do, and I’m not comfy with the whole interface of kodi.

Thanks, in advance!

If you use MPV, pressing Shift+q, it saves current position and reopens it later automatically.

I just open an entire folder with MPV ($ mpv ~/media/[Judas]Bleach/).

For tracking which shows I’ve seen I use Episodes

Episodes from f-droid. It’s kinda ugly but it works. It also shows which shows have specials and new seasons. Some people just use MAL and that’s fine too.

Episodes seems like neat app, domo arigato! The mpv trick is slick what can I say except yay!

Libreoffice Calc works :), but I personally use Jellyfin. Although I’m afraid if Kodi is overkill, Jellyfin might be overkill-overkill.

For anime AniDB has several applications that automatically mark episodes as watched. Personally I mark them manually so I can’t help you with this except for providing some links:

Hey! Thanks, I’m currently on their website seems amazing!

Wow! This is so comprehensive. This is precisely what I was looking for thanks in loads, I was wondering if it was possible to integrate the anime db app with https://anime-downlader.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ it would be pretty handy.

Sorry that I can’t be of much help but I don’t use anime-dl so it would be hard for me to provide any reliable info. But AniDB doesn’t provide any links to watching anime (except for a few licensed platforms) so it probably won’t be of much help when searching for download links. But if you download files from groups (which seems to be the case looking at your example with [Judas]), AniDB does have file checksums for many groups so you can mark episodes as watched and query anime info basing on it. I’m unable to give any specifics though, sorry.

F-droid gives 3 red flags

  1. Depends on non-free apps
  2. Promotes non free services
  3. Tracks and reports

Did you look into these by any chance?

I know about them, yes. if you don’t use Trakt you can still use the app and that takes care of point 2 and maybe point 1. It scapes info from places like IMDB, TVDB and TMDB so of course there will be some tracking.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
