I use Plex Media Server to watch videos on my televisions. The cool thing about Plex is it allows you to store metadata about your video files and then organize your collection based on that data.
To gather data about a file, Plex uses a metadata agent that searches an online resource for words in the filename. For TV Shows, it searches thetvdb.com; for movies, freebase.org. I would like to build a metadata agent for my Anime Music Videos using data from animemusicvideos.org. To do so, it would be very helpful if there were a RESTful API.
Does any kind of API already exist? Is it accessible to the public? Could one be added? Is there another site that would be more appropriate for this than the org? I'm happy to do the work on the Plex side of the equation, but I can't do much until the data is accessible to the public (individual Plex users will execute the metadata agent, so requests will come from individuals, not a central server).
