    I do not have this list, I can say exactly about FanartHandler, LatestsMediaHandler, MPExtended but this is from memory, I do not keep track of plugins that I do not use. But they are obviously still there ...

    I'm not sure it's a good idea to rescan 500+ movies, 10,000+ music and about the same number of pictures, not everyone wants to do that. Ideally, you need to migrate from the old database to the new one.

    How about TVSeries? mvCentral and other plugins?
    BTW, this upgrade will only affect the movie database (VideoDatabaseV?.db3).

    Although the infrastructure for the Music, Pictures and Videos will differ, the Music and Picture databases are unchanged.

    Just to keep you up-to-date, I've decided to change, on the experience of working on extensions and cs scripts, to change my approach to the coding of this upgrade.

    I am going to separate the SQLClient code from the new approach so that the legacy software will see no change but the MP and Configuration applications will see the new approach. So, there will be a delay so I can make these changes. Hopefully, the result will be easier to upgrade.

    Tony

    P.S. I've written the code to upgrade from V5 to V6.

    Am I right in thinking that fanart is being integrated more into MP1? One of the things I have noticed is that when I delete a movie that has scraper images, the images don't get deleted as well - so they hang around forever.

    I'm ensuring that all movie database records associated with a movie are removed when a movie is deleted from disk. So this would seem a good time to remove fanart images/records as well. It's really easy to do as I've already developed the code.

    Do you agree?

    When deleting movies, MP1 deletes some of the images. But not all of them. FanartHandler can also clean up images. It just needs to be enabled.

    Hmmm... MP1 has never deleted database movie records, or any images, for me. I'm just installing MP1 in the standard way: i.e. without making any changes to anything else.

    I was expecting that deletion of movie records and related images would have been the standard behavior. I'm making sure, in the code I'm working on, that MP1 will do that. I'll also make sure it handles Fanart data and images as well.

    All is going really well. I've quite a bit of testing to do and will start to look at extensions shortly.

    Thanks for mentioning you use IMDb+, because that is why Article remove stopped working for you. At least for the titles that get renamed by IMDb+. The problem is that Moving-Pictures does not re-apply the article remove setting after IMDb+ changes the title. One solution is to add all those movies to your IMDb+ custom rename database...
