  1. Add info from (and links to) Kitsu, Trakt, Wikipedia etc.

    Add info from (and links to) Kitsu, Trakt, Wikipedia etc.
    When viewing movies & tv shows, we are shown info from IMDB about any given movie/tv show.
    When viewing a page for an anime, we are shown info about that anime from MyAnimeList.
    I would love to see Kitsu added to the anime pages, and Trakt + Wikipedia to Movies/TV Shows/Anime's.
    Other great sources that could also be added are.:
    Wikia Fandom pages
    Subreddits
    AniList
    Anime-Planet
    AniDB
    AnimeNewsNetwork
    TheTVDB
    TheMovieDB

      • "Specials" considered as normal episodes

        For example in Downton Abbey, all season finales are called "Special", but they are actually just normal episodes. When I want to mark those as watched, they don't appear on my dashbord and I have to go to the "Specials" section to mark them. But very often this section changes its order and e.g. Special 5 becomes Special 8 or something like that.
        At least for Downton Abbey, changing those Specials to normal episodes would be great, so they don't get mixed up with Behind the Scenes episodes or so!

          • Add app for better management!

            Add support to players or some app which is integrated into explorer so i could right click movie/serie and select i have watched this or something like that. Doing these things manually is too demanding.

              Simkl has Chrome extension AND Windows app for video players like What is Simkl TV Tracker app?
              ← Software
              At the moment, our Windows app has the ability to demonstrate how the application is already capable of detecting almost any TV show and Anime that can be downloaded from the internet and played through most popular video players.

              You can download the beta version from https://simkl.com/apps/
              With the help of the Simkl TV Tracker app you can detect most TV or Anime episodes downloaded from the internet or downloaded through iTunes.

              Instructions: Install Simkl TV Tracker, open any TV episode video file. In 7–15 seconds (it may take longer times for detecting rare Anime) you will see a small popup at the bottom right corner with the name of the TV show and it’s episode number that you’re watching.
              PS: Beta version is for demonstration purposes only, for Windows 7\8\10…

                                      Currently, Simkl does not have options to watch all TV Shows, Anime or Movies. However, Simkl provides links for Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll where you can watch the TV shows and Anime.

                                      Simkl helps you track what you’re watching and discover new shows & movies. We have built the Simkl™ TV Tracker for passionate people who like to watch TV Shows, Anime and Movies on their computers, and who are tired of manually tracking all shows that they watch using outdated manual watchlists. For people who are geeky enough to want a hi-tech automated Watchlist solution no matter how you watch – download video files on your computer or watch streaming video online, on Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, etc…

                                        • Degrassi: Next Class again, sorry :)

                                          Sorry, if there were another way I knew to contact you I would, but this is the only way that I know of haha. Degrassi: Next Class is a Netflix Original, meaning that they release full seasons. They already released all of Season 3 available for streaming, and I'm on episode 9 now. I'm not sure about other parts of the world, but at least in the U.S. it would be nice if I could mark "watched" on all episodes that I've seen. Thank you.
