Release Notes

Although we're trying to avoid the recent flurry of almost daily releases, we have decided to push out another release as it addresses IMDB's recent web page changes, which caused scraper errors in the last version. It also includes the following...

- * IMDB scraper errors, caused by recent webpage changes *
- Tmdb languages file not found after browsing for local fanart
- DblClick TV images no longer zoomed
- UI TV images overlapped text
- Empty movie list if path(s) removed and then re-added
- Movie duplicates where decided by name instead of id
- Movie sort by votes

New features:
- YouTube trailer scraping - scrapes flv, mp4 & webm trailers
- Re-scrape TMDb set name added to Specific fields list and batch wizard
- Added help for taking ownership of media files. This problem manifests itself as an 'access denied' error when MC tries to delete an existing media file that isn't owned by the user, even if user has administrator rights.
- Press Ctrl-C to abort trailer download

Reviews for this release

Works great all around except for the movie scraper. The movie scraper does not populate the Genre tag properly at all. Since upgrading from v3.5.1.3 all my movies added since then are flagged as Genre "scraper error". This error carries over into my XBMC database as well. Still very faithful to this product, but would luv to see this Genre issue fixed.

Working well, especially the Frodo Artwork download. All scraping is working as expected. The one thing that that I feel is missing (marked as low priority in bug list), is the "Brief" log option. I do not really want to scroll to the end of a log to see what I actually wish to read.

I haven't seen any issues with TV shows, but there are a couple with movies. The first is that new movies are not having their names detected properly (if i have something like it might read it as "movie" or ""). The second is that when I change the title of a movie from the drop down menu and hit save it will display "Unknown (0000)" instead.

Movie scraping completely broken for me on this release. TV Show scraping a mixed bag.

Beautiful. This release is money. Only issue I've noticed is some movies will be empty after a batch rescrape (but individually rescrape all for those movies works fine). Thank You! Update: as the other poster said, outline field is filled with user reviews.

Thank you, again great work. Only one thing. It looks like the outline field is filled with a user review?
