is there really a slash in the file or folder name?

Hmm.. i solved this problem, but by deleting all files in preferences:
So, for the time being it's ok. But, please, let's get back to my question number one: about scraping shows and movies on another languages.
I'd tried you advise and changed database language to one i want and.. nothing happened. I tried searching in different ways, but.. still same result: english only. Maybe you can fix it one day? Thank you!!

Maybe I should mention that it gets foreign language results only if they are available on the database, and not all languages are available for every movie or tv show, in which case it will default back to english.
When manually searching for a movie, if the description is in your selected language, then it's available.
When doing the same for a tv show, it seems that it shows up in english when doing a manual search, but if your language is available, it'll still download the correct language.
I'll have a look into this one, but I don't think I can change this behavior.

Thank you. May I, somehow, try to help you? I played with it myself today. My toys were:
When search thetvdb.com for, let say, series FRIENDS - you fill get under request "friends" a lot of different series, but there are friends on english, spanish, italian, etc.. Ok, but in my case - i'm looking for a russian name. And, maybe you know, we are using cyrillic symbols instead of latin. So, I change my search request into "друзья" (that is russian for friends) and.. success - here it is.
But, when I do search with EMM-r it somehow offers my Russian even when i do search for a "friends" in english. (do you need a screenshot)
And, the last - when I'm search with ViMM for friends it shows me only one version for it, and if I search cyrillic request - it shows me nothing ;(
Maybe there is a way to check how EMM is working? because it works like magic. Any ideas? Thank you!

@Marius , from my side the file is correct. when it saves it , it cracks up somehow
- antah - 2011-09-24 14:09
One more idea about fetching my cyrillic name - I found out, that TV show ID at thetvdb.com is always the same (doesn't matter which language you need). Probably, EMM is searching english version and then offering you every language option for you to chose. And, if you have preferred, let say, german - german version will be in the top of that list.
BTW, i'd tried your ViMM to set it for German and searched for Friends - nothing happened again ;((

Have you seen this
or similar tools for extracting info from media file?
This media info app
is using the same library

It might not show it in the search dialog, but once it’s downloaded, it’s definitely german text, at least for friends.
When searching, it just defaults to english text with no option to show descriptions in localized text, but when actually fetching information, it’ll download the localized text if it’s available, and for some reason, it seems not to allow searches in all languages through the TVDB API.
I’ll look into downloading localized information, but that’ll probably mean that it’ll take extra time to download a description for those localizations.
This is what I get back from the API:
Feel free to send me a screenshot.
My programming isn’t entirely Cocoa native, but i’m looking into using MediaInfo.
Ideas... - demosthien - 2011-09-25 23:56
@Marius - Some more ideas for your list or to ignore (as you see fit).
Are there any plans for the main information panel (the right panel), maybe expanding the current use (stars, info, title, plot & a couple of images)? It just seems to me that this is a lot of space that is being under-utilised.
Also, the use of the two separate toolbar buttons for "Extra Art" and "Metadata" seem a tad redundant as the "Metadata pop-up window contains the "Extra Art" options anyway.
Then, within the toolbar "Metadata" button pop-up, there is the "Extra Art" tab menu option... Using the drop-down menu introduces an additional UI selection method which is not really necessary as you could just add each of the options to the tab menu or have image set boxes running down the page for each category.
So here's my thoughts on possibly improving/simplifying the UI (at least as far as these functions anyway).
1. Do away with both the "Extra Art" and "Metadata" toolbar buttons by incorporating the "Metadata" pop-up information into the main information panel (the right panel). Get rid of the current limited info display and slap the "Metadata" pop-up info right there instead (keeping it editable of course). Keeping the tab menu at the top.
2. Then, within this new information panel combine all the "Art" options into a single tab menu within which you can put all the art download options as either a set of secondary tab menus or maybe as a series of image set boxes showing thumbnails etc of available art in each category. The user could then select the art they wish to use from each category or none (would be worth having a selectable box within each set for the "none" option) as they desire.
Implementing these UI changes mean the user will have no need to leave the main display at all. All the information they need is available for viewing an/or editing right there on start-up without having to access other menus etc.
Now... Comments anyone?

Oh, and a quick mention... The plot seems to fall off the side of the information panel. Word wrapping?
