Release Notes

Plenty of new features, fixes and improvements.

With this new build, is one feature I've always wanted to add. Export MC library to Kodi Import format
This feature off the Tools heading, allows to export Movies and TV Series to a specified folder, in the same format as Kodi Exports the Library to a Single File. Including artwork and actor images.
NB: Extra artwork types are not supported by Kodi Import, so Fanart.Tv files are not exported by Media Companion.
Hope to have up-to-date information on MC Documentation link by end of the week.
So, you ask why? This is perfect for starting your database in Kodi from Scratch. Instead of having to run the scraper over your entire Movie Collection and TV Series, all data is contained in one location for Kodi to import.
Play, test, let me know if there are any problems.

Snuck another feature into this release. Hopefully not too quick that it breaks anything. On Movie & Tag Sets Tab, right-click a Movie Set and select show Movies in Collection to display all movies in selected collection and whether you have any of these movies.
This is a Work-In Progress, and required some changes to MovieSetCache file.
Note: If you get warnings on no TMDB ID, please run Movie Set ID Check which will do two things.
1. If a Movie is in a Set, with no TMDB ID, then the TMDB ID is scraped and saved to the Movie.
2. Downloads info for all collections for all movies allocated to a collection.
This last one speeds up displaying of Movies in a Collection.

As Mentioned, This was put together and tested, but could produce some crashes where I didn't catch Oops's correctly.

As Always, post up discussion or Issues, and you'll get some sort of an answer.

So far looking good. 64bit is nice and snappy :-) Few silly things I can't quite put my finger on yet...
