Hi,

I just got Riverworld 2010 and had Riverworld 2003, using MC I could not find Riverworld 2003, OK, weird but I'll look into that later I thought.

Dragged Riverworld 2010 AVI onto MC and had to change movie as even though it should have easily picked up the 2010 version it picked up the 2003 one. Few other changed and rescan movies and the 2010 version is also now not being displayed, I have now confirmed that the 2003 version definately exists.

It would appear that under some conditions MC will not display a movies details.

Thanks,
Dennis

P.S "Date Added" still picks up modifications even though I finally folded and ran the commands to reset the NFO files.

I added the files
'Riverworld (2003).avi'
'Riverworld (2010).avi'
They both scraped correctly movie using the 'search for new movies' tab.

Using drag and drop, both movies scraped, but both were identified as the 2003 version.

I can't reproduce the issue causing one movie to not be displayed, the only reason it would not be added after a drag and drop was if the movie was not located in a path added to MC. In this circumstance, the movie would be scraped, but not added to the list since it is outside of MCs folders.

It looks like I need to do some work on the Drag and drop scraper thread. The main scraper thread has been updated a number of times but to be honest I forgot that MC even had a drag and drop facility.

Just to clarify, both scraped OK (apart from the 2010-2003 issue) and were visible in MC for a time before disappearing. Drag and drop is all I use now.

Thanks,
Dennis

Hi,

There does indeed appear to be a problem with the .nfo, for starters the "title" appears to be a newline (or blank). I tried both drag+Drop and scan and both produced similar non-problematic .nfo files so something else caused it such as editing the title. Here is the .nfo (removed excessive actors):


Code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<movie>
  <fileinfo>
    <streamdetails>
      <video>
        <width>640</width>

  <plot>Hale, an American astronaut dies and is reincarnated with other persons who have lived throughout all of human history and end up on a mysterious planet called 'Riverworld'. The humans are left to their own devices and create tribal fiefdoms and succumb to brutal wars and raids. A mysterious race of hooded 'beings' oversee them - sometimes intervening, but their motives are unknown. Anyone who has ever lived and died on Earth comes here rather than 'the afterlife', even an extra-terrestrial call Monat, who had the unfortunate luck of dying on Planet earth in 2039. Hale leads a revolt and joins with others on a large boat to explore this mysterious new world.</plot>

P.S. I just remembered another MC bug it seems to grab the last 'x' bytes of the title when scrapping long titles, not sure what 'x' is.
