The below steps are optional but recommended to use Streama properly.

Add a themoviedb API key

To automatically get metadata you need to add a API key for themoviedb. Create an account and request and API key, once you have an API key you can add it in the settings page.

Import your current media

If you already have a media library accessible from the system Streama is running on, you can add the folder as a “Local Directory” in the settings. You can then select files from this folder or bulk-add them.


The below steps are completely optional and depend on your use of Streama.
