NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade metax -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade metax -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Tag Your Movies To Look Perfect in iTunes, Apple TV or other Media Players

When you want your movies to look as good as those purchased from iTunes, with cover art, descriptions, ratings, actors and more, you NEED MetaX.

With only a mouse click or two, MetaX will scour all the major sources of movie and TV information on the web: TVDB, TheMovieDB, iTunes as well as IMDB and Yahoo posters and display the information. You can select from multiple entries to get just the look you want, then quickly write the tags into the file so that it shows up in iTunes, Apple TV or whatever media play you use, just like it would if you had purchased the movie from iTunes.

MetaX supports MP4, M4V, ASF, MOV, AVI, MKV and WMV files.

Not all formats support all tags. AVI files in particular don't support most tags, including not supporting cover art.

Check out the MetaX YouTube channel

The MetaX YouTube channel has lots of instructional videos

Great for TV Shows

By using theTVDB you can tag an entire season of episodes with just a couple of clicks.

Set Ratings for Parental Control

Set the rating of a show to allow parental controls to work. You can even use country specific ratings for the UK, Germany, France, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Ireland and Japan.

Easy To Customize

MetaX has lots of preferences that allow it to work the way you want it to. You can configure MetaX to copy the tagged file to a different location, set the filename or title based on information from the show (title, year, showName, season, episode and more). You can have MetaX pull the movie name or TV Show, season and episode number from the filename, you can save a copy of the untagged file, you can specify which data sources you want to use, and what order to display them in the search results, and have MetaX automatically update iTunes and MovieLibrary when it tags a file.

Import data from MyMovies or other XML files

MetaX will import data from the MyMovies files, or from NFO files.

Find Great Cover Art

You can get cover art from any of the data sources (theMovieDB, theTVDb, iTunes, Amazon or Yahoo). You can also use files you've downloaded, use cut and paste from websites, and even select a frame from the movie itself!

Subject: MetaX - Distribution Permission

Hi Dan,

As we may or may not have discussed in the past, I maintain a Chocolatey package to install MetaX. It can be found at:
https://chocolatey.org/packages/metax

Currently the package downloads from https://www.danhinsley.com/downloads/MetaXSetup.msi and verifies the program and package versions match by a checksum. When new versions of MetaX come out and I don’t know about them, the Chocolatey package will intentionally fail to due to the mismatched checksum.

I’d like to request permission to include the MetaX binary directly into the Chocolatey package so that no future versions will ever fail to install. (And if we get the whole notification subscription to new releases worked out, I can do timely updates.)

There appears to be no License or EULA for MetaX. So if you’re OK with me including the binary executable (.MSI) in the package, please explicitly tell me saying so and these e-mails will be included in the package as proof of distribution rights.

I really like it when I can make packages that never fail. 😊

TIA,

Bill

You have my permission, and if there’s anything I can do to make this process easier, let me know.

I’m not exactly clear on what the Chocolatey package does that just he msi doesn’t.  I’ve never used package managers, can you give me an idea of what this does?

Also, it looks like the picture of MetaX on the Chocolatey MetaX page is old, you might want to update it.

Dan

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
