hi guys, i just thought i'd let you know to be carefull when using this as i got my self blocked from icefilms for the last few days for using this program, i have had to ask over on icefilms forums to unblock me and they were not very happy, i think its something to do with to many connections to the site get u auto banned.

have scraped over 2000 films so far using this over the last two days... and done 10000 tv episodes before that and i have had no problem with being banned

well like i said just be carefull as this program was the only thing i was setting up in xbmc and it got me banned, i scraped no where near as much as you so and i have not been streaming lots of stuff off icefilms so i don't know.
heres the link for my thread http://forum.icefilms.info/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=21205

this is a very cool thing,
BUT it is really pissing off the owners of icefilms.info!!!
it is using A FUCKLOAD of their bandwidth, and is making relations between the XBMC community and icefilms community VERY strained.
i designed my addon in a certain way so as to avoid impacting badly on their bandwidth
ie. not scraping the whole of their site in one go.

Unless someone has a better idea, I will indefinitely disable IceFilms support for this tool. I don't want to cause problems between IceFilms and XBMC

thanks for the reply bradvido88, i was really impressed by your code, but i don't think its sustainable.
would be nice if you could help smooth things over at
and notify icefilms people that you will discontinue icefilms support for the moment.
the only thing is that since i have already made the scrapers, someone could very easily repurpose them in just the same way and have them scrape the entire catalog again. i've suggested icefilms might want to adopt an API to save bandwidth, but i'm not sure how keen they would be to do such a thing...

I personally don't use IceFilms, so I don't really care about this.
Download link has been updated to a patched version without icefilms support

yeah, i suggested it with the intention that everyone would be using the default of c:\dropbox
obviously this doesnt work for mac or linux, but for a windows build could it work
