    even when "ignore possible matches with incorrect year" is active?

    ive noticed this is a very usefull option, but maybe having a range of plus minus 2 years would be better

    i had a movie that had filename with 2008 and the movie was 2009, after changing the year number it parsed it correctly.

    Well what you are suggesting is definitely an option, but it reeks of a "quick and dirty fix" to me. The GUI handles a list of movie objects, and files that have not been approved or auto-approved have no attached movie object. So to do what you suggest, we would either have to add a lot of ugly "special circumstances" code to the GUI, or create dummy movie objects for movies that have not been auto approved. The later option might be feasable, but I think it would introduce quite a few problems and wouldn't create the best of user experiences.

    it was just an idea, if you consider it is not a good option then we will wait for your solution.

    I just thought it was an "easy trick" to make it usable.

    :D

    You have to understand that the auto-approval logic is not black and white. It looks at several different metrics and then assigns a probability of a possible match being correct. The "ignore possible matches with incorrect year" option is a special case that forcibly excludes movies if the year does not match. If you do not have this option turned on though, the closeness of the year is just a factor into the score for a possible match. If the year is off by 1 or 2, it doesn't necessarily mean that the possible match wont get approved, it just means it's slightly less likely. Like I mentioned above if the title matches very well but the year is off a little bit it still should auto-approve. If you want it to be more liberal you could adjust the auto approval rate in the Importer Settings tab.

    This was implemented long time ago. This plugin handles DVD-rips (in any form) just fine ;-)

    This thread is from over a year ago and not really relevant anymore, so I am going to lock it.

    For what it's worth if anyone is interested in voting on new enhancements, just star the issue on Google Code. You can follow this link to see the list of currently planned enhancements ordered by popularity. Please note that enhancements that have already been implemented for the upcoming 0.8 release are not in the above list (although you can take a peek here).
