    This would be very possible. Keep an eye open for the Scraper Writing guide that will be released around the time of 0.7. I think you are right, this data source might be a little too niche for one of the core devs to implement it (although maybe someone will get inspired :p ) but you could still throw together a script yourself.

    Yep, thanks for the response. I'll keep my open and maybe tinker with a script some day.

    You should definitely give it a try. The scraper scripts seem a little intimidating at first glance but they are really not very complex and the scraper engine is very flexible.

    They have already integrated the backdrop fading logic, so if you have a recent version of StreamedMP it will work out of the box. That is the most important skin change. I am sure they will incorporate some of the more minor skin changes before long though.

    Hello,

    I am in the proccess of switching from XBMC to MediaPortal.
    Both systems have advantages and disadvantages......

    The Moving Pictures Plugin is far supperior than the Movies Plugin In Mediaportal, but has the following problems compared to the according plugin in XBMC (XBMC Media Center)

    1) The XBMC Scrapers are the best i tested till now, almost no miss a all and the IMDB Scrapper finds everything.
    I will try to attach the XMBC IMDB Scrapper.

    2) Moving Pictures cannot play ISO files wout this files have been mounted....
    Media Portal can already (in never Versions) play .iso, .img, etc. files as long as the are listed in the extensions list
    directly from a share.
    Is that posible to be included to Moving Pictures too ?

    Cheers,
    Konstantin

    Moving Pictures will play ISO files if you setup Daemon Tools within Media Portal. I have it setup this way. The only thing that bothers me about it is that when I choose an ISO, it tells me a disk has just been inserted and asks if I want to play it, but this is a Media Portal setting that I choose to leave turned on since I like the option when I play normal DVDs.

    Hi BuddMan

    yes, i know, that is what i mean with "Moving Pictures cannot play ISO files wout this files have been mounted....
    XBMC doesnt need any Deamon Tools and Mediaportal itself can play the above mentioned files directly from a share, wout having to mount them with Deamon tools.

    When I have to play dvd image file, i dont use the Moving Pictures pluging, i use instead the the embeeded MediPortal "Movies" pluggin and play the Images files directly from a share wout the use of any mounting tools.

    Cheers,
    Konstantin
