    We use the FileSystemWatcher class which I am pretty sure hooks into this subsystem, although admittedly I am not very familiar with Shell Notifications so I could be mistaken. I would be happy to work with the Flexraid developer(s) to move towards a solution though.



    And for what it's worth, we have also recently added the ability to auto rescan your collection at a fixed interval or manually trigger a scan from the GUI. A fully automated system is definitely more desirable but for any users looking for a solution now this is an option and is configurable in the config screen.

    The importer is can only work so much magic, if your filenames donthave enough information to accurately identify the movie you might have to do some manual work. For stuff that doesn't match though click the search button in the importer panel of the config to manually search. You don't have to go and rename all your movies, you can just perform a manual search in the config for the ones that don't match properly.

    Yes this field is already added in the 1.3 code base. It depends on how much free time I have but I would like to push this out before too much longer. In GUI searching will be really nice plus we need to get something out if for no other reason to fix the IMDb title prefix thing (new IMDb script is here by the way for people that don't want to wait).

    Sorry for the triple post. :oops:

    Hello!
    First of all thank you for your continuous work!
    Is there already a string for "Production Company" so you can use it in .xml files and show in the skin. Or will this come with one of the next releases? I think it is also possible to use logos for "Production Company"?!

    As far as I know MovPic uses FileSystemWatcher to get changes from file system. But it can be also set up to auto scan all import paths every X minutes (in advanced configuration). This will make files on FlexRaid appear in MovPic for sure. But short answer to your question about shell notifications, no :)

    Anyhow, not related to question, but I can see one advantage of using shell notifications over FileSystemWatcher: shell notifications do not "lock" the removable drive, with FileSystemWatcher you cannot safely remove it, but with shell notifications you can :)

    Is the 1.2beta version compatible with 1.2 RC? Am just checking that my 'key' plugins will work before I look at upgrading!

    Thanks

    You should definately check out the IMDB+ Scraper offers some great customization in what languages you get. The way I have it set up I get US titles for most movies, but norwegian, swedish and danish movies keep their original names. It also has a greap customization for specific movies so you can set it up to name the James Bond movies James Bond I: "name" and so on.
