    Hello.
    For some time I have some problems with the plugin. Cannot read file data.
    I found the explanation in this page:
    Official MP News || Keep Up To Date - MEDIAPORTAL

    "This Release will break all plugins who use MediaInfo, please report issues on dedicated thread, related to plugin."

    Is there an update to solve the problem (as happened with the beta version 1.8.3 of Moving Pictures)?

    Also it seems there may also be problems with TVDB coming ...
    From their Facebook page:
    "Hi, I wanted to post a quick update here. While we resolved the CDATA problem this morning, we're still working on multiple issues related to the API, the most prevalent issue - metadata not pulling into many media centers. Other issues in our API dev queue includes fixes for pulling artwork, delivering zip files, and handling languages and 301. We appreciate your continued patience as we continue to push out solutions to these problems. "

    This doesn't seem to address the mediainfo issue. Am I the only one with this problem?

    It works like this from me:

    Today I added the latest episodes of Supergirl and Batwoman.
    It founds the data from TVDB (plot and vote for Supergirl, also director and writer for Batwoman) but did not download the images for the episodes.
    I don't see the duration of the episodes.
    I see the icon for: the resolution, the video codec, the audio codec, the number of channels, the aspect ratio and if there are subtitles.

    I'm seeing issues that seem to be related to thetvdb API changes, also no thumbnails for new episodes and series.

    An excerpt from the logs:

    Once all the TVDb API issues have been resolved and confirmed working then will issue a new release.

    NB: Although MP1.23 has breaking changes for MediaInfo, this should not affect TVSeries as it did not use the MediaPortal wrapper. Having said that, there has been updates to make it work better with the latest MediaInfo.dll that MP1.23 distributes.
