Media Library Scraper

Awesome but relatively easy idea:

Add a scraper ala xbmc so we can have thumbs that are the movie covers. I think this would top it off nicely.

I think he'd like to see the actual cover and not a thumbnail taken from the stream.
This plugin would do the trick viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2126&start=300&hilit=imdb
Or you can add a picture called <moviename>.cover.jpg (<-- don't know which extensions are supported) into the same folder as your movie file. E.g. 'Big Buck Bunny.avi' would display a picture Big Buck Bunny.avi.cover.jpg
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx

Okay, but a scraper is a thing that cuts out a frame of a movie. XMBC does that if no cover was found.

So we are both correct ;)

Has there been any more consideration to this idea? I would love it if the blue icon folders were replaced with a nice fanart via a HTTP scraper.
(Similar to how plex or XMBC work).
