    ClearArt Loader
    This small project I wrote helps you downloading clearart images from different data sources (xbmcstuff, lockstockmods, fanart.tv). There are two versions available, ClearArtLoader and MPClearArtLoader. The first one (ClearArtLoader) loads all available images for a given tvdb id and you can preview the images an choose which ones to download. The second on (MPClearArtLoader) will go through the mp-tvseries database, extract all tv shows and automatically download clearart from one of the datasources for all your shows. If there are multiple images available for a show you have the option of a)downloading all b) choosing manually, c) always pick the first item or d) picking a random image.

    !!!Important!!!
    This is a quick&dirty software hack so don't expect a polished software product. I wrote this for me to ease the downloading for my series and it got kinda out of hand... :D:D:D Since there was so many positive feedback I extended the tool again and with 0.2 also released the source if someone wants to further improve (or rewrite ;)) it. I also added support for fanart.tv (thx @ Imzadi).

    I began implementing a command line version but I'm not quite finished with it, so I'm planning to release at least one more version of this. Also I'll talk to the MP-TvSeries guys (or should I say gurus :)) to get clearart support included in the plugin.

    Feedback always welcome!

    Good job mate. :D

    What is needed to be able to use them? Latest MpTvSeries or a skin that supports this feature (if so which skins support it at the moment)?

    Amazing, works like a charm - downloaded clearart for 38 series in 2 minutes (incl. choosing).
    Too bad I did this manually before, which took me a couple hours :D

    Thank you very much, and please push this into MP-TVSeries somehow!

    Re: MPClearArtLoader -> automatically download clearart for your tv shows

    I've been creating a couple of new clearart files today and uploaded to xbmcstuff. So if you've been missing files for Veronica Mars, Trailer Park Boys, The Gates, Haven etc, you might wanna run this app again.

    Is there a reason that low-def versions (356x200) of the clearart are downloaded from xbmcstuff.com ? The "example-files" installed by streamedmp seem to be the high-def version (500x281)...

    Where exactly do I put the downloaded images to see them in TV Series with Streamed MP?

    Very slick tool!

    Thumbs\Clearart

    Just set the tool to output into this folder.

    A feature request for this tool; a button that can export the missing series clearart into a .txt file and also support for the other site that has clearart except for xbmcstuff. The tool worked great for me!

    :D
