Because I'm a lazy bitch this is the idiot free version. So hence when you set bs the app won't tell you about it. A not or wrong set username/password combo will just do nothing. Furthermore i'm not handling any sort of bs regarding entering letters where numbers are expected. I'm just hoping the average user won't be too retarded to get the obvious.

Auto-creqing is the preferred way to creq files. Not all metadata for files can be creqed this way, though. See How to get started with creqing#Files for more information.

This article explains how to set up Avdump for auto-creqing. If you need further assistance, please visit us at irc://irc.synirc.net/anidb.

Note You have to set a API key in your profile before auto-creqing with Avdump.
Note If you use a firewall you will have to open a port for Avdump first. You can force Avdump to use a fixed port with the option -port
Note It is possible to run more than one instance of Avdump at once, but not more than ten will work OK. At the moment only 10 sessions per IP are allowed by the server, meaning the eleventh instance will terminate the first. Also, if you suffer under NAT, running more than one instance will make it worse.

Windows

CLI

  1. Download Avdump2.
  2. Decompress Avdump2 in some folder wherever you want.
  3. Open a command window (cmd.exe).
  4. Change directory to where Avdump2 is located.
  5. Execute avdump2.exe --Auth={your username}:{your api key} {full path to a file or a folder}

GUI

A simple GUI for Avdump2 is available for CLI skeptics. The GUI package includes the most recent version of Avdump2 as well.

 
Screenshot of the AVDump2 GUI

Usage

  1. Download the GUI here (portable).
  2. Set your AniDB user name and API password in the options menu.
    1. API password is set on your user settings page: http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=profile
    2. Under the "Account" tab, create a UDP API key; it can be anything you want. It is used for Avdump2 to connect to AniDB.
  3. Save the options.
  4. Select what you want to scan from the main menu; files or folders.
  5. Select the stuff you want to scan (... Button) (you can select multiple files at once).
  6. Click Start.

  1. Download Avdump2 and decompress it in some folder wherever you want.
    Example: "C:\Program Files\avdump2\"
  2. Right-click avdump2.exe, select Create Shortcut'
  3. Right-click the shortcut, add -o --Auth={your username}:{your api key} to the Shortcut - Target line
    Example: "C:\program files\avdump2\avdump2.exe" -o -Auth=myname:ilovecookies
  4. Move shortcut to the SentTo folder.
    Example under all modern systems: "C:\Users\{Username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"
    {Username} is your Windows username
  5. Right-click any media-file/folder, go to Send To, choose avdump2

Linux/FreeBSD

it runs via wine <add more stuff>

Example:

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/avdump2.exe -port54321 --Auth=your_AniDB_username:your_API_key "c:\anime_file_name.mkv"

For this to work:

  • avdump2.exe should be extracted to the path ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
  • replace 54321 with the UDP port you opened in your firewall
  • replace your_AniDB_username with the user name you login to AniDB with
  • replace your_API_key with the code you set in your profile
  • replace c:\anime_file_name.mkv with the full Windows path and file name of the anime file
  • The anime file must be on one of the DOS devices you have configured in Wine!

Processing DVD's

For processing DVD's it's best to set a small blocksize. It will improve the performance.

Use -bsize:256:1 (The default is 2048)
