Release Notes

WOW, over 45 commits since last release, and MC is feeling smoother with the ironing out of that many bugs.

BUT, they weren't all bugs. Some new options have been added to MC, so please hunt through the perferences tabs and check out what's available.
Let's call it a Easter Egg Hunt, since Easter isn't too far away. LOL.

SO I'll try and break it down:

New Features

  • Movie - Set quantity of studio's saved in nfo.
  • Movies - Manual Renaming of Movies in a Folder, even if Usefoldername is selected.
  • Movie - Scrape Original Title from IMDB instead of general Title.
  • Movie - Set your Max number of Genre.
  • Movie - Set your Max number of Studio's.
  • Movie - Set number of sets to display, and what sort order.
  • Movie - Set number of Actors to scrape and what sort order.
  • Movie - Set date format
  • Movie - Genre updated to automatically populate from your movie list. Also easy to add any custom Genre's by adding to a movie, saving, and Refreshing all.


  • TVShow.nfo populating the actors thumb field correctly.
  • TV - Lock all shows/Unlock all shows working.
  • TV - Missing Episodes, not detecting if set to Frodo or Both.
  • TV - Missing Posters if set to Frodo or Both.
  • TV - 404 on saving ep thumb, caused oops.
  • TV - Selecting some episodes and closing MC, caused mc to forget those episodes till a refresh.
  • OfflineMovies creation by new ffmpeg, corrected ffmpeg hanging.
  • Movie - Set quantity of studio's saved in nfo in MC.
  • Movies - log to display if scraper errors occurred and what file involved.
  • Movie - set with an ampersand (&) caused a crash.
  • Movie - Update Title was also overwritings sort title entry.
  • Movie - Set Filter sorted alphabetical
  • Disabled - Movie Pref>Advanced feature of "Download Actor Thumbs" no longer required. Currently not working. Creates empty nfo file.
  • Movie - Frodo artwork set as preferred to display, if Frodo or Both selected.

!!Know Issues - those pesky one's that won't go away.
  • Movie - Frodo is only supporting video files currently. DVD folder structure not currently supported. Still Work In Progress!
  • TV - Multiepisodes scraped correctly, but not displayed in TV browser correctly.
  • XBMC IMDB scraper issue.
  • Log Full/Brief toggle not functioning.
