Version 3.260 is now available from here

Changes for new version 3.251

Fixes
  • Bugfix - 'Create Folder.jpg' Setting in movie preferences not saved
  • Bugfix - 'Save files as movie.nfo' Setting in movie preferences not saved
  • Bugfix - Table View - Red background of missing fanart/posted disappeared after sorting
  • Bugfix - Various other issues causing errors in Table View addressed
  • Bugfix - Renaming episodes broke the cache filepath for multipart episodes.


Changes for this build.
  • Thanks to khaoohs for his information regarding the 'mediainfo.dll' dvd image issue, this build of MC includes a more recent build that apparently reduces the time taken to get info from IFO files to near what it takes for avi files.
  • Table View now has the facility to edit multiple Movies simultaneous, useage should be obvious, just select more than one movie to enable.
  • Table view sort preference is now saved
  • The drag and drop feature for movies has been updated, it was not as bad as I thought, just a couple of things needed tweaking.
  • Tweaked TV Show scraper to check for identical matches anywhere in the list rather than always just return the first item even if it was not a match
  • TV Show scraper now ignores contents of parenthesis in folder name, except when it is a year
  • When searching for new movies, MC checked for movie parts upto 5 (cd2, cd3....cd5) these were ignored, updated to check for upto 9 parts.
  • An inexplicable error regarding posters has been addressed if not fixed, it occurs with a few movies such as 'Dnevnoy dozor', for some reason the TMDB poster will not save without raising an exception. This is now handled, but the problematic art will not be downloaded.


And Finally by popular request
  • TV Episodes can now be renamed by Entire Show, Season, or even individual episode.


Report bugs in the appropriate forum, or bump them if they remain unaddressed, I occasionally loose track of what I am supposed to be doing and my memory often needs jogging.

Download Version 3.251
Version 3.260 is now available from here

Regards

Billy

In the last few builds of MC since 3.198 (if i remember correctly) when I start up my app
the way my movie browser and TV browser fan-art and poster displays is funny.
The way it displays the poster and fan-art ratio`s seems to be messed up (over-sizes the one
and shrinks the other) so every time i have to re-size it and it`s okay until i close & reopen the app
and it does it all over again.

Ps. thanks for all the work it`s great.
Still would not mind seeing a custom re-scraper thing for tv shows like movies has.

using MC 3.251, when scraping new shows it uses the first show fan-art for all the other remaining shows.
Perhaps because the first one was verified and the remaining ones I did not verify yet, but because it automates
when folders added...

Hey, great work going on here- I've been following the recent builds- there's so much potential here, and it's nice to see a utility like this that's actually getting the maintenance and attention it deserves, rather than all those out there with dead links and update histories that seem to stop in 2007 Razz
Thanks for all the continued support!

With the most recent build, I've rebuilt my media library nfos, and it seems the <aspect> tag is no longer being added into the nfo's. I've kept the first ones in my list from a while ago and they all seem to have the tag, and are not getting modified when I select Rebuild Movie Nfo files. Likewise, if I delete an nfo and completely rescrape the movie, the new nfo is created without the <aspect> tag. I know the new mediainfo.dll still supports this, so was wondering if it's a MC problem?

Just wondering if this is something that will be re-added in a later build? Or if it was never implemented into MC and perhaps the existing <aspect> tags are leftovers from a different nfo compiler I've used. Either way, it's not a huge issue, but would be nice to have my XBMC aspect flags working again.

Looking forward to the next MC installment!

Nope, the <aspect> tag was working for MC, but it seems that the new version of mediainfo.dll is not returning that info using the current method.

I've fixed it for the next build by just calculating manually from the media width and height.
