    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    I have a doubt.
    I have tried to creat the *nfo file with your app, and i think it works.
    But then, i have tried to add my movies in Moving Pictures without the internet, and the scrapper don't load any movie.
    I have also tried to put, XMBC (Local) in first, and nothing.

    Do i need internet? I think one of the proprose of this app is to load the *nfo information for each movie without to need the connection of internet. Is this possible?

    Is the movie information in the nfo files?

    If so then try posting your question in the thread for the XBMC scraper.

    My girlfriend just bought a WD TV Live Plus mediaplayer and I want to copy some movies from my server to her external hard drive. This plugin worked great to copy the coverart to the movie folders first. Thanx man, this saves me a lot of work.

    Small bug:

    When file names have & in them.

    The files you create puts & into the file name instead of just &.

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    just bought a WD live TV HD, this sound like just what i was looking for !!!

    will try it this evening.

    any chances of making this an app that can be run in the background, with certain settings and it will act when new movies are added?

    thanks

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    please jmcentire can you add an option to clear images when the movie no longer exists?

    maybe even a full delete all images and then copy them again could be enough.

    the problem comes for example if you rename a movie file, eg
    Zenitram [DVDRIP][Spanish AC3 5.1][2010]blablabla.avi
    to
    Zenitram [DVDRIP][Spanish AC3 5.1][2010].avi

    right now you end up with two image files.

    thanks a lot !!

    and thanks for all the work so far as you just saved me a lot a lot of hours doing it manually for my new WD TV live

    Why don't you just delete the image files and then rerun the export? It's pretty easy to do a search on *.jpg and hit the delete key.

    indeed, as well as it is pretty easy to code it into the program and then it can do it to all folders selected in moving pictures.

    its a matter of improving this little tool.

    same thing as the automation request, it can be done manually each time a new movie is in the folder, but it would be even better if its done automatically.
