    Looks good, working well here.
    Has anyone compared this new scripted version against the inbuilt IMDB one?
    If the general opinion is that this new one is a lot better we could look to remove the other one to simplify choice for new users.

    As for inclusion in the core, v1.0 is feature freeze and all effort is going into producing a solid bug free v1. This new stuff will look to go into a version 1.0.1 some time after v1 goes live; but the patch will maintained to current svn levels and all the testing you guys are doing now means the integration work later will be quicker as any bugs with it will have been ironed out.

    Crazy Recommendation.

    Can we have the imdb script have a way of blacklisting words so it doesnt query the server.

    Reason I ask.. is sometimes I have movies that are named like this:

    Terminator.DVDRIP.avi
    or
    Terminator.TVRIP.avi
    or
    Terminator.DSR.avi

    how could I blacklist words like DSR,TVRIP,and DVDRIP from the query so I can actually get results instead of having to enter the movie manually.

    Thanks.

    it'd also be nice to have WORDS you can set to stop reading once the word is read in...

    i.e.

    Terminator.2000.DVDRip.XviD-blah.avi

    if DVDRip was in the word list, it'd only read "Terminator 2000"

    This would all be a moot point if MP would just use the folder name instead of the file name.

    This is one area that XBMC totally obliterates MP on.

    ... not everyone puts each movie in a separate folder. and even if they do, the folders may have the same naming as we listed above.

    I like you idea regarding it to stop after a certain point. that would make the programming logic easier.

    XBMC has the option to use the folder name or not use the folder name. MP should be the same way.
