This article is for the Trakt plugin compatible with Mediaportal 2 version 2.2 and above. Starting from Mediaportal 2.2 the development of the Trakt plugin has been moved out from main development. This will allow quicker updates ad bugfixes specifically for Trakt.
A new Trakt plugin has been developed with better sync and watched flags management, completely compatible with the new User Management system, allowing different Trakt accounts for different users.
The new trakt plugin supports on screen notification for successful/unsuccessful scrobbles and automatic library sync for collected movies and episodes.
It's also now possible to choose what to sync, if only movies, or tv series, or both.
Authorize the plugin
The first thing to do once you have installed the plugin is to fire Mediaportal 2 client and log in with the account you want your trakt profile be configured. If you don't use user management you can skip this step.
Then navigate to Settings → Plugins → Trakt → Authorization and Syncing.
From there, a new page with an authorization code request appears. Open your browser and go to http://trakt.tv/pin/6601 or scan the QR code with your mobile, then add the code you find in the page to the trakt plugin. (you might need to enter your trakt.tv credentials)
Then hit authorize. The red caption should turn to Authorized! and the plugin should be working from now on.
Leave the program open for a few minutes until it sync your library and watched flags with Mediaportal 2 and backwards.
You can now move to the settings section below to see what each setting does.
