    Is ok @ajs , the expenditure is then too high for the programmer. ;)
    Since each user must help themselves (n)

    расходы слишком высоки.
    потому что каждый должен помочь себе :ROFLMAO:

    Not really. Just to make it right and beautiful. I need to add a lot of libraries to work with images. Then you need to analyze each picture, whether there is an alpha channel, what type it has, etc. etc. Then convert and resize. This will complicate the utility. But calling an external handler, in general, will not affect anything.

    That is how the tool (nconvert) I used in my script works.

    Original post @ Reduce storage size of 'thumbs' folder (MovPic + TVSeries)

    Feel free to download the ZIP file, and examine the basic batch file with the command line I use.

    The way I wrote it was by using size thresholds, and used:

    Code (Text):
    1. nconvert.exe -quiet -out jpeg -ratio -resize 0 1080 -q 85 -rmeta -rflag decr -opthuff "%TMP%\MovPic.png" > nul
    To first reduce the image, but then if it failed to become 350kB or less, I would use:

    Code (Text):
    1. nconvert.exe -quiet -out jpeg -ratio -resize 0 1080 -q 70 -rmeta -rflag decr -opthuff "%TMP%\MovPic.png" > nul
    If that failed I would try:

    Code (Text):
    1. nconvert.exe -quiet -out jpeg -ratio -resize 0 960 -q 60 -soften 30 -rmeta -rflag decr -opthuff "%TMP%\MovPic.png" > nul
    And then finally just accept that result, but add warning to log file if it still failed to get below the configured threshold.

    The usage of MovPic.png was a file placeholder, because Moving-Pictures was storing filename in database, so I couldn't change extension to JPG but content conversion was not a problem. In the end the script works for any JPG or PNG file, and keeps the original filename, but it was easier to batch script it with fixed temp name for the conversion processing step.

    My thumbs folder (on NAS) only 9Gb ... I see no reason to reduce it. Moreover, he is one for all clients.

    Good Morning everyone.
    Today i let MePoTools do an Manual update of fanart etc.
    But it doesn't get any Filesd anymore. Instead of OK it Shows dashes.

    upload_2017-8-18_7-48-58.png

    Is this a General Issue at the Moment, maybe fanart.tv changed something?

    Thanks for your help
    Carsten

    I confirm that the program has stopped working.
