Exellent idea. This has been discussed on xbmc forum, and the developer Guybrush had some intresting ideas of how this would work.

"And darkie, in your python script you are indeed parsing the website which could change over time, but take a look at:
http://www.apple.com/moviesxml/h/index.xml
or
http://www.apple.com/moviesxml/h/view1_all.xml
(set your user agent to "iTunes/4.5")

Sneaky eh?, XML is perfect for these kind of things ;)

iTunes uses these urls for trailers, so the format wont change or they will break their own application."

    Just FYI,

    If you use QuickTime Alternative *.MOV movies play nicely in MP...
    I manually pull down the streams and store them for TV playback so feature you guys are talking about would be very nice.

    DMAN.

    althought it would be better if the coming attractions feature could pull them directly off the apple trailers page

    I've started working on a scrapper application to pull showtimes for local movie theatres. I can't find anything like xmltv for movies.
    movietickets.com has all AMC theatres.
    canada.com has all the other theatres for canada.

    I'm trying to select a good site to scrape from for testing. I'm thinking a config can define numberous sights and some parameters to help in the scrapping.
    What good site are there for movie listings? Anything else i'm missing?
    I'm kind of at the proof on concept stage.

    Well, I can't really complete this plugin without a good selection of sites to scrape the info from.
    I can do it for my personal needs cause there's only a couple of theatres I go to in the Ottawa(Ontario, Canada) area.
    All the relevent information is at famousplayers.com and moviewatcher.com.
    I don't think that covers much in the states and definitely doesn't cover anything overseas.

    I'm looking for a good selection of sites to make sure the program works as expected.
    What sites do the readers of this forum go to for show time information?

    You should try http://movies.yahoo.com/

    I know that the myHTPC/Meedio version of their plugin runs from yahoo. It works on Zip code and there are versions for about 15 countries which all work in a similar way, so it fairly easy to code for a lot of countries. The one above covers the USA and Canada.

    Australia and New Zealand http://au.movies.yahoo.com/

    If you want I can track the whole list for you.

    That site looks like a good choice to start with. It doesn't cover the AMC theatres but that's alright.
    I'll start with that one.
    Thanks forbes

    VLC has a browser add-on that allows you to start a video selected in your browser in VLC, you then can use its record button. Doesn't always work though, my guess is it won't on protected vids but it is the only thing I have found other than the excellent download capability of Online Videos when available.

    Standard Windows behaviour is that if you open a file in File Explorer that has an application associated with it the file will be displayed in that application. This does not happen with MP2. If I try to open a .ts file (or any other video file type associated with Media Portal) rather than displaying the recording it merely opens...

    MP2 is based on Windows as OS for server and client, accordingly not ment for phones. There are 3rd party apps, that can conntect to a MP2-server, but they are not free of charge and no help is provided by us. Please check our WIKI for details first. It works well with mouse, keyboard, remote and touch display. In case you have...

    Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.
