    Just make some dummie files ?



    Make a random file and copy it x15, give the different files some movie names and voila, you have a movie collection to skin ;)

    Easy for you maybe.... :) I'm just wallowing in cluelessness.

    I'm still trying to figure out which xmls I'm forgetting to fix...... very slow progress. I find out more and more how little of Media Portal I actually have seen. Every few minutes my wife finds a screen I haven't touched... and I just sit there scratching my head, wondering which one it is. I've got the basic areas in my skin working on my HTPC (Watching TV, Recording TV, playing music, watching movies), but a lot of the dialogs I hven't discovered yet.

    Guys sorry but the release will have to get pushed back another day or so. I know you are all anxious, but I just want to release something that is stable and has the features we promised. I am really conflicted here, because I firmly believe we should be releasing the software "when it's ready", but at the same time I want to communicate with the community and let you all know what to expect, when. So sorry, it's just not ready. We are getting very close but the Scraper Manager is running behind and there are a few things that need some better testing before release. I could probably get the Scraper Manager finished tonight, but I wouldn't feel comfortable at all releasing so quickly after finishing the code with so little testing. And the ISO support needs some attention which I know everyone is excited for. So I want to make sure that is working smoothly.

    So the release will be pushed back. I am really hating these deadlines so I am just going to say a few days. That could mean tomorrow night, that could mean this weekend. Hopefully (and the plan is) sooner rather than later, but the pressure is not helping anything, and I don't want to create additional disapointment if things run behind again tomorrow.

    So thanks for your patience. It will be worth it, trust me. This will be a great release.

    Absolutely no problems at all! As you have pointed out before, You DO have a "real" job and you are doing this plug-in on your sparetime so really no need to be apologizing. I am home on maternity leave so I was of course a bit anxious to install the new version this morning (CET). :) But I can wait a few more days!

    m8 don't get stressed over release dates, I would rather you took your time to get it right, and to continue to code excellent plugins in the future :)
    It's ready when it's ready, and we'll use it when it's released :)

    Just a heads up that IMDB has changed its layout in the last few days.

    It's broken alot of the current scrapers for other software out there.

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
