I'll look into this, for now it will probably save the cover only when you actually are looking at MOVIEINFO. Also this will probably be optional.jonLumpkin wrote:Future idea would be using this plugin for automatically pulling down the cover art for all of the titles in a persons library and possibly saving them to a "movieTitle.extension.cover.jpg". I just started this process the other day and am about 20% through pulling images off imdb or Amazon and saving them with the file name. If this process could be automated through the use of your plugin (should be possible as the appropriate cover is found) it could save many people a lot of time.
If you only are using IMDB plugin u should definatelly disable all other plugins, you can do this by changing the "Plugin=...." line in MOVIEINFO.conf to "Plugins=IMDB". This will drastically improve the speed of pulling data.jonLumpkin wrote:The only problem I have is general slow performance (about 10-20 second delay) before the various info types (IMDB, FILMWEB, CSFD, MOVIEMETER, etc.) are displayed. I'm not sure if this is a fault of my connection, or if disabling some of the engines (all I really care about is iMDb) would speed up this process.
You are right, this is because of IMDB... the picture of the director is on a subpage so I didnt implement it because it will take longer to import the data all together, imo its just not worth it to have to wait a bit longer just for one picture.jonLumpkin wrote:EDIT - One minor thing - Pictures come through for cast members (if available), but not directors. I'm not sure if this deficiency is caused by your program or iMDb, but it would be nice if it could be fixed.
An another project is started by taconaut that will add a functionality of custom media library, maybe what you described can be implemented in that project....but this is not up to me.jonLumpkin wrote:EDIT2 - Would it be possible to implement a local library for this content? This would basically be a way of having your program run through all the files in the PMS share once and saving the results to disk. I realize that filling this library may take several hours if you have a large collection, but it might speed up the process of looking up a files info (and downloading the images). You would lose the up to the minute rating, but I think this would be an acceptable tradeoff for users with limited internet connection speed.

Please help me get past this stage, really looking forward to running this awesome feature. Maybe some HOWTO would seriously help.
