    I'd prefer avoiding adding features like that since they can easily be done manually... adding in new features opens doors for new bugs. I don't know about you but I'm not comfortable with this program having automatic abilities. It could be disastrous if it deletes something it shouldn't (somehow).

    Exactly, when doing it manually you can see what your deleting to make sure it is correct. Scripts that move or delete files can cause major problems if something goes wrong.

    If you do want the script to do it for you, you are welcome to modify the source to meet your needs.

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    i am talking about deleting only .jpg files, so it should be safe to do so.

    nevertheless, if you dont want to do it is ok, i have read someone looking into making a command line for this good program, so i will be able to add a batch that does the rest in that case, plus also make it run automatically every x days.

    are there any news on creating the command line ?

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    THANKS for uploading the source code !

    no need to look at my suggestions anymore as I can code it myself.

    Ive already managed to automate it and delete old images.

    thanks

    btw, its a good idea to include the source code in the first post of this thread. and if new versions come out, i would thank you alot if you also upload source code.

    once again, thanks

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    is there anyway to use this app to just create an nfo file with just the imdb address? i'd like for xbmc to know the imdb address but scrape all of the information itself instead of using what's only in the nfo file. i see listed in the features of the app "imdb address link" but i see it nowhere in the app. thanks all.

    Not sure if this has been brought up already, but when I run the app it won't create an NFO file for any movie that has an ampersand (&) in the title. It continues to copy over the Artwork, however.

    Example: 'Angels & Demons', 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith', 'Marley & Me', etc.

    Sure it does it just names them wrong. It replaces the & with & in the name. At least it does for me.

    I think that I figured out my problem - the 'Title' of the movie can contain an ampersand (and it will be renamed all funny like you mentioned), but the directory cannot.

    Once I changed all the folder names to the word 'and', the NFO file creation worked.

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    More then likely the program also makes the & = & change on the foldername, and is then at that moment unable to access it to write the NFO file.

    If the author can fix the & problem on files, it should also fix the problem for folders.

    That being the case, it is easier said then done :cool:

    Re: App to Copy Artwork and Details to Movie Folder

    Hey everybody - so I think that I found two bugs, one of them kind of being a more serious issue -

    1. If a movie exists in a directory containing an ampersand (&) in the directory name, a file will not be created. The directory must be renamed to produce an NFO file (artwork will be created appropriately, however).
    2. If the 'Overwrite Existing File of the Same name' option is UNCHECKED, it will append an extra </movie> to an existing NFO document everytime the program is run.

    The second bug can be problematic, since the XBMC scraper will not import the information appropriately. Can anybody else confirm whether they can reproduce the second bug?

    I included a shot of my options screen which in turn produces the second bug -

    Thanks, guys!
