Hi,

I love your program. Have you considered offering this as a windows service that would use the filesystemwatcher class to watch for new video files in a folder and automatically download and add the nfo/tbn/fanart? Then the main program could edit the info that was downloaded automatically if the user wanted and manage preferences? I would find this insanely helpful as I would not have to open the program to edit the info unless i noticed that xbmc had some incorrect info. It would provide all the convenience of the xbmc imdb scraper with all of the control/speed of custom nfo's. I'm not sure if other people using your software are as lazy as I am, but I thought i would throw the idea out there.

The watch class idea sounds good, but having a service is probably overkill, you could just add a shortcut from the "startUp" folder (starting minimised).

agreed - no need for the windows service. Just adding the ability to watch folders would also be a much quicker addition to the code and it gets at the heart of what i would like it to do.
