Where in the source do you define your music video tags?

Just compiled the test app and it worked perfectly.

you guys aware that the mtv and yahoomusic scrapers don't currently work in XBMC (at least the versions released with 9.04)?
I'm going to go ahead and fix them and submit a diff.
Oh and btw, support for music video scrapers is done, as soon as i manage to fix the two that exist
on to TV Shows next
Edit: Sorry, the yahoomusic scraper works on quite a few videos, however its just the fact that most of the music videos i have are obscure ones,
The MTV one however failed on even every one i've tried, it goes through the search fine, but doesn't pull any info about the video..
Version 2.3 Release At or before noon - Nicezia - 2009-05-21 13:21
Version 2.3 Releasing today at noon (Central Standard US )
Adds complete support for Music Video scrapers, and completes all support for all movie scrapers (Added post method, for asiandb), fix for clean option, and random fixes to avoid errors.

Both scrapers (svn) are working fine here.

the mtv one i have troubl with it works from time to time i've found out after testing it (In XBMC) with just random searches.... however it doesn't work for me as far as the music videos i actually have, one case i found interesting in particular is Eminem - Ass like that, where there are actually two links on search page, and only one shows up in XBMC, (and in my library as well) and the one that shows up is actually a link this page http://www.mtv.com/videos/

Yeah, seem as if the video page was removed. The Yahoo API returns a censored (A**) result. But lets stop thread-jacking
- Nicezia - 2009-05-21 14:02
Agreed i have to work on tv show support anyway!
- vdrfan - 2009-05-21 15:02
FYI, updated mtv.xml scraper (r20513) now uses the MTVN content API which is a bit less error prone.

might i suggest adding a version attribute to the scrapers? so people can know which version of the scrapers they have? It would make it easier to keep track of the need to update scrapers. Also i'm thinking that it might be a good way for users of the library if they need to save settings to know when those settings need to be updated from a new version of the scraper.
