    Hi yoavain, is this something universal or documented? Even tho it seems like a good thing to do, personally I wouldn't like IF:

    - half of profile images will be missing after the change - has to be tested on large sample
    - twitter changes this in the future and all profile images are missing - if it's undocumented feature, change can be made without any announcements

    But perhaps I'm just too worried about a small change like this ;) But would still like to hear edsche's comments.

    Hmm, I see your point.

    Here's what I found in Twitter API documentation:
    GET users/profile_image/:screen_name | dev.twitter.com

    According to that, you can use the following options (for example, with the user "teammediaportal")
    http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/teammediaportal.xml
    http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/teammediaportal.xml?size=normal
    http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/teammediaportal.xml?size=bigger
    http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/teammediaportal.xml?size=mini

    And here's the one they do not document:
    http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/teammediaportal.xml?size=original

    IMO, the one they don't document is still valid, since anything else gives back:
    HTML:
    <errors>
    <error code="24">Unsupported profile image size</error>
    </errors>


    Anyway, we can always do this:
    1. Try to get the original (biggest)
    2. If we get an error return code, try to get "bigger"
    3, If we get an error return code, try to get "normal"

    But I'm pretty confident 1. will work great.

    By the way, I got the idea from the well known HoverZoom Chrome Extension...

    :D,
    Yoav

    Good. I am pleased that that is now working for you. :) If you have ever looked at MP debug log files, you may have noticed that apparent errors are not rare, but these are "errors" that do not affect the functioning of the product. (It is not desirable to have these errors in the log file, as it misleads users, testers, and...

    So not 100% sure if this is a MyTVSeries or FanArt issue, but the episode thumbnails always revert to the series default after restart. If you go to an episode and open the options and pick choose artwork then choose episode thumbnail it shows the correct thumbnail and says it is remote. Click on it and it goes local instantly and...
