Very detailed explanation, I believe ViMM supports most of those images and naming concepts, except extra thumbs since those would need to be extracted from the video itself.
I guess I'll also be looking into those websites for extra artworks. ^^
But if it'll be a lot of results, researching a grid view first will be a really good idea.
If anyone is missing any image types/names, let me know.

MariusTh86, best version so far !!!!
No errors, works fast , almost perfect :-)
Now , show me the sets :-))))))))
and if you do make it work with sets, think of maybe adding SET art and also Fan Art for Sets, that would be great. No other tool does that ....
Keep up the good work

Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work! Been looking for an intuitive way to manage my media collection for OSX. I have one question dealing with movie trailers. The only way I'm able to get XBMC to recognize them is if I change the trailer file extension to .flv as opposed to .ext is this normal? I've recently switched from Plex to XBMC and still trying to get a grasp on the differences. Thanks again!

Talking about movie sets, VIMM gives error reading EMM nfo's with movie sets code. It gives Invalid xml data error.
Ups. I've just updated to last beta and no more errors on movie set code.

'.ext' was actually my way of saying '.extension', which would mean any video extension such as '.flv', '.avi', '.mp4' or whichever format the video is in.
'.ext' is not actually a movie extension, so this shouldn't be used at all ever for a video file, it's just hard to define a good representation for the miriad of movie file extensions available.
Since mine only downloads '.flv', I guess I'll be save in using that instead of '.ext' until I find a better or higher quality format.

Since I didn't have movie sets to test with, I didn't see that I had written some faulty code regarding sets, but thanks to some user input i've been able to fix it

Just a question. According to the XBMC Wiki all image-naming(poster.jpg fanart.jpg folder.jpg) have lower letters in their names. In ViMediamanager they all get capital letters (Poster.jpg Fanart.jpg Folder.jpg). Will this be an issue later on?

Beta12 is the cat's meow. A few minor gui things like maybe a fetch all button on the main page would help.
How goes the tv show changes? Any idea on scraping for plot/vid cap from thetvdb.org for each individual episode?
That's the one thing holding me back from using VIM for TV.

Is there any batch proc for downloading clearart or tv thumbs for a portion of TV shows. Not one neither all shows but selected ones.
Many of us have extrathumbs folder in our movies databases which some skins uses in some views (which is nice). Can we expect to have extrafanart folder with VIMM cause extra thumbs are random extractions and quality of images depend on movie resolution (which is not always 1080p). Despite, fan art could be better solution. So, not only to download one fan art per movie but to create folder and download user definable number of images.

I highly doubt XBMC will distinguish between capitals or lower letters in future versions, especially for something like images, so I’m pretty sure we’re save as is.
I’ve got as a goal to include individual episodes before I make it to a full version 1.0.
But for v0.5, my main goal was to make the current features stable, and hearing the recent reports it seems I’m very close to that goal, so I may go on to tv episodes soon.
As is, if you scrape with ViMM for a tv show, XBMC will add any episode, and use the TVDB to download episode information for any episode you have using an episode guide URL that’s included with ViMM’s scraping, so you shouldn’t miss out on anything weather you use your TV shows with ViMM now or later.
ClearArts, Logo’s and TV Thumbs are currently not auto downloaded because they’re from a different website then the TVDB’s, I may create an extra step in the future, inside the program to automatically download the first ClearArt, Logo or TV thumb available on scraping a tv show.
Using extra fanarts instead of extra extracted thumbs for now is an interesting idea, I’ll note it down and see if I can use it.
