Hi, First, very interested in a plugin like this.
With .meta files you will have the control instead of depending on some flaky internet service.Meta File Creator
I created a script that can create almost any structure required by such a plugin.DOWNLOAD: https://sites.google.com/site/moviemetacreator/
(Sorry windows only)
It uses Sublight, and cURL commandline tools, the rest is just window script.
Edit2: I'll optimize/update the script regulary
To test it out, simply expand the rar to somewhere, and drop a videofile onto the CreateMetaFile.bat
Important: The script checks if the file is a "known" file via the internet (Using Sublight here),
if it's not a known file, the script will search google based upon the parsing the filename
(and foldername if the script finds it relevant).
Google search will return a imdb page that will get parsed and outputted to a <moviename>.meta -file.
Tip: Put a shortcut of the bat files into the SendTo menu,
then you can just right
-click on one or more videofiles and then select the shortcut via SendTo to launch the process.
Edit: I also inclucded a batfile that will download imdb poster thumb, aswell. (same procedure)
Feedback are very welcome.
