Billy -

Thanks for the great app. I've been playing with it all weekend.

My first request would be for some way to manually input a movie. The scraper failed on three movies in my collection (Lawrence of Arabia, Made of Honor and Man on the Moon). In order to get Media Companion to scrape their data I had to copy a .nfo file from another movie and manually edit the IMDB ID, rename it to match the movie, then restart Media Companion. After that, Media Companion was able to scrape the data just fine.

That's it for now.

Thanks again for all the hard work!!

~~ Mark.

Even if the program cannot find the IMDB ID it should create a blank nfo that can be use to get the correct movie from the edit page. (The "Change Movie" Button)

It sounds like MC is not findin the movie at all, the only reason this would happen is if the movies have unrecognised extensions, (avi, mpg, wmv etc)
If this is the case then let me know the extensions and I will add them.

If this is not the case then could you give me the exact filenames of the problem files. I'll see if I can track down the problem.

The problem arose as the result of a Unhandled exception (Object variable or With block variable not set) error (details below) that occurs when MC is scraping information for the movie. I've seen this error reported in other threads, so I'm sure it's something you're already on top of. The result is that no .nfo file is created for the movie, forcing its manual creation.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

I'm sure I already fixed that bug, what version are you using?

Version 1.818 is available

Download

Try that and see if it sorts out your issues.
