    Inspired by a thread in German forum I was thinking if it's possible to have some MDE to work with common Movie catalogue tools like ANT (used e.g. by MP1 plugin MyFilms), Ember Media Manager or tinyMediaManager (used by me ;) ) I think to benefit 100% from this tools all that is needed is a MDE reading those DB while importing a share and get all metadata and fanart from there. This is nearly as the basic concept of MyFilms plugin, leave the "hard work" to specialists and only grab the "good stuff" needed... All those tools has their own DB that can (more or less) easily be read from outside...
    What do you guys think about this? I believe this will add a whole bunch of usability and positive user experience to MP2 with not that much work. Maybe a good time to ask as the importer rework is on it's way...
