    Well, the link with the double slash is not correct (copy it into a web browser to confirm), so it won't download anything.

    As to why this link is incorrect, I have no idea. Sorry.

    How are you trying to search for fanart - with the fanart handler plugin or with My Videos? You have provided incomplete logs and no steps to reproduce, so it is not easy to help you.

    It's not an error, this is 2nd try to search fanart (first one is regular link with one "/" and it didn't returned result) because there was some occasions when users put in TMDB database wrong IMDBttID number as /tt1234567 so API gives you result only as http://........//tt1234567, there is a more stupid problems on TMDB (two same movies entered by different users so you can get no result even that first entered movie is correct and so on.... that's the problem with open databases).

    So, in general, fanart for tt0166973 not exists (only covers) which you can see also if you try http://api.themoviedb.org/2.1/Movie.imdbLookup/en/xml/2ed40b5d82aa804a2b1fcedb5ca8d97a/tt0166973

    Agree, that error can confuse (but I need log for that to see failed search).

    What is mistake is that 2nd search in this case in not needed as 1st returned regular XML but in it's data there is no fanart, so 2nd search should be avoided. I will do that change and improve log to not to be so confusing.

    Will mark this topic as "Bug" so I can link this thread in Mantis entry.

    I have some videos, that have backdrops in TMDb, but MP cannot lookup em. I provide logs where MP cannot retrieve fanart and correct links to pages with fanart by API.

    UPD. I have checked and see that TMDB nothing returns for some video TT
