MAL Updater (a.k.a. MyAnimeList.Net Updater)

MAL Updater is a software used to automatically update your anime list on the website MyAnimeList.Net when you watch something on your computer.

~ Head here to see an overview on the software's features.
~ Head here to learn about MyAnimeList.Net.
~ Head here to see screenshots.
~ Head here to download the newest version.
~ Head here to browse and search for new themes.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------

MAL Updater Themes:

There are a lot of user made themes
for the MAL Updater Software.

You can find a listing of all of them here.
On the right you can see the most recent ones.

Soon you will also be able to upload
your own themes to the site.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------

MyAnimeList Updater Features:

This program connects to the website with your MAL user account and retrieves your Anime List.
From here on there's a lot you can do:

* Start watching some Anime in one of the supported players, and MalU will detect which Anime and episode it is, and update your MAL list automatically with the last episode you have watched.
That's right: MalU will check your video players and identify the Anime and episode.
* See how many people are watching the same Anime at the same time, and open a chat window with them.
* Manually sort and update your list from MalU (episode watched, score, status, etc).
* Tell MalU to search in your hard disk for the next episode of the Anime you are currently watching, or from any in your list, and launch it in your default player.
You can even use a Hot Key and hook a mouse button for this. There is also an option so that MalU automatically launches the next episode when you close the player.
* Have it automatically check TokyoTosho for torrents of new episodes for the Anime in your list, have it download and launch the .torrents automatically according to some filters, and even tell uTorrent to store each file in its own Anime folder, if you have set it for every show. You can even have it automatically discard either MKV or AVI when both versions are present.
* Check your hard disk to see which Anime have new episodes available, and how many.
* Show in MSN and mIRC what you are watching, including your score, episode/episode total and a URL to information of the Anime.
You don't need to install any extra plugins or scripts in MSN or mIRC for this.
* Show in mIRC what you are listening to in either Winamp or Last.fm. No extra plugins/scripts either for this.
* You can make your own php forum signature which shows what you are currently watching, your last updates etc.
* Batch rename your Anime files to some criteria like Fansub - Anime Name - Episode.
* Send your computer system info to a mIRC channel (ok this is unrelated to Anime, but you can use this to replace any script/dlls you are currently using).
* It has full 64-bit support and detects more than 4 GB of RAM.
* Easily move and rename entire folders of Anime with a batch tool.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S.: By the way, you WILL need an account with MyAnimeList.Net, as well as an up-to-date anime list with MAL.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S.S.: I got permission from the moderator "GHDpro" to post this thread.

What happens when MAL is down? Does it apply to this updater?

It would be great if I could use this, but most of the time I'm in Mac OS X. It would be great if someone made a version of the MAL updater for Mac OS X and Linux without using Wine/Crossover Mac/Linux.

Yup. MAL Updater needs to be able to connect to MyAnimeList.Net in order to access and update your anime lists.

I don't know what you're talking about.

By the way, I had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of this program/application, I just want as many people as possible to know about it.

By the way, I'm currently working on a (for now) solo project, which is a Qt-based mplayer frontend geared specifically towards anime fans. For those who don't know, Qt is an open source cross-platform C++ framework that works perfectly (and looks beautiful) in all three major platforms plus some more obscure ones. Qt is used extensively in major applications such as the Skype client, Google Earth, and the Opera browser, besides being the de-facto framework of choice for the KDE desktop environment.

It's still not release quality, and I still want to do it solo for the time being, but the source will be available as soon as I can get something useful and working out of it (read: basic set of supported mplayer features, basic database features). My idea was to integrate features exactly like this one, plus Amarok/iTunes-like collection support, feed aggregation, Wikipedia/ANN/AniDB integration, and whatever else people might want to. So keep your eyes out for a 0.1 release in the coming months

Mal Updater should have Windows 7 support by now.

By the way, there's a new update: http://www.malupdater.com/MalUpdater...itle=Changelog

Whoa this seems great. I use MAL but I'm very lazy and I always forget to go and update the newest episodes. Sometimes I even miss whole series and thus my list is incomplete as it is. So thanks alot for posting this

One thing annoys me though. As I said, my list might be outdated. So for example just as I started watching K-On 22, it complained to me that it's higher than what I last saw. Can't this be '' fixed '' and for it to just update it to 22 then ? D:

One thing I hate is simply that it see even the movies or video I'm watching that are not anime, is there is a way to stop that but still update the anime watched. I didn't find how to find this the last time, and that is why I dropped it.

Go into Settings, there should be an option somewhere that disables it.

The only thing you can do about this is not watch anime & non anime stuff all mixed up.

Here's another issue.. I have Download All Torrents automatically checked on options, but it doesn't download them. For example, I just clicked on Manual Search on the torrent thing ( there were no results for some reason even though it should check them automatically ), and Ookami 10 appeared there but it was in gray color. I had to double click it to download it ...

Maybe I failed with setting up the filters ? I put Mazui to the group name, and '' mkv '' to the next part ... I thought this would do it but no ?

You'd have to ask Kotori yourself, I'm not affiliated with this app or the people who oversee & made it.
