    Could not create a temporary table as it is you already have. I do not understand where it came from there ... :confused:

    For some reason the plug was run twice (maybe a problem in the plugin). Therefore could not create a temporary table. :confused:



    @blair_haynes @D3ltoroxp
    - If you kept the old database then it is possible to return and run the plug-in configurator.
    - Or try 55 Beta. :)
    - Or just delete the database FanartHandler.db3, and at the start of the plugin should create a new, and do import all your pictures.

    * Trying to fix the database upgrade.(If an update causes an error, then delete the database FanartHandler.db3, and at the start of the plugin should create a new, and do import all your pictures.)

    Have to disagree. Functionality like this is exactly the reason why we have plugins. We should keep the Core as clean/stable as possible. That's 1 of the main reason why the Windows plugins were all split up.

    Wouldn't think about the impact if this was part of Core and not working for as long as we have issues with FH now.
    Besides that, FanartHandler & MIH are both doing a lot of similar tasks, so it's up to the user what he prefers. ;)

    I meant to do it, plug-in, as part of media portal. How My Videos. But then it is best to write from scratch.

    In general, this plugin makes too much. He must collect pictures with folder thumbnails media portal, and show them where they are needed. Upload images, useful information, etc. must separate plugin (like MIH, MePoTools).
    But now we have a lot of plugins that do the same thing. MIH, MePoTools, DVDArt etc.

    Bring to a normal state, this plugin will be very difficult. Here is what that residues 1 and version 2, version 3 deficiencies, hence a lot of mistakes and code complexity. I've already thrown about 30 percent of excess and not the right code. And I think that there remains much again. As well as the setting of rewriting the existing thumbnails. If to look algorithm then rewriting until just does not reach as all interrupted earlier, but saves bandwidth.

    Aah, ok, then i misunderstood ;)

    Agree. From my understanding, FH was primarily designed to manage all existing FH/thumbnails and show them in the correct place.
    The only scraping i use FH for is the NowPlaying scraping when i'm listening to Webstreams (Radio).

    you guys forgetting one thing ;)
    all do scraping yes, but only one view them as fanart, with low use of memory:)
    the rest plugins do great job for scraping,but cannot view them as fanart with animation and low use of memory.
    all the viewing of cd art,clear art,logo .... are using a link to folders to view them and this tack more memory use (thats way some skins slow and havey :()

    i agree now we have to many pluging for scraping that do same things ... but from many years of expiration like what happen with fanart handler (developer gone ...) and then suddenly it's not to many plugins any more ;)

    thanks guys for all the work you do (y)

    Exactly - and I've been saying this since quite some time.

    Your excellent work is a great opportunity to streamline all this. You have developed the MePo Tools, now you are trying to repair the FH. My preference would be to be able to replace FH, MIH and MepoTools by one single plugin. You appear to be the man to do this :)

    CAUTION If you do not close the window of the configurator media portal, and some times cause the plugin, it will start at the same time in the number of copies equal to the number of its launch.
    Why is it I do not know. Will I be able to change it just do not know. Behaves and old Fanart Handler and Latest Media Handler.

    In this case, it may invoke another plug for the desired thumbnails or backdrop. He does not need to download it yourself.

    It is.

    I think it's no problem to add more properties to the plug-in to support other types of pictures. But in my opinion it should not load them, he must show them, and their cataloging.

    But then it is better to write from scratch. Unfortunately my knowledge of C# is not enough for this. A Delphi does not want to interact with the media portals using .NET.

    Will not leave, here it is necessary to write all over again. But add features download thumbnails in MIH, I think not difficult.
