I guess any improvements are really basic things to the process of setting up and updating, possibly all that could be simplified but I'm sure you're already trying to do that.
Otherwise a search function, and maybe use the popular or recently released options to make it easier to add content, (not that the alphabetic option is complicated just not that useful for discovering new content).
Thanks for the plugin.
I will make a small guide on how to schedule updates on Windows and Linux when I get the time.
Adding popular shows next to the alphabetic categories seems like a good idea.

When exported my library the artwork in the movie directory took up 2.84 GB. The fanarts took up 2.23 GB of those 2.84 GB.

The only thing I've noticed that might need to be addressed is the case where a show is already in the library but I only have one season and what to add the IceFilms version for the other seasons. At the moment, it'll add all shows found on IceFilms which causes duplicates for the seasons I already have.
Example: I already have season one of Better Off Ted on my hard drive and added to the library. I add it from IceFilms so that I can have season two with all the metadata available but now I have duplicates of season one's episodes.
Is there any way you can check to see if the episode is already in the library, and if so, skip it?
Otherwise, this is a great addition and I'll definitely be adding this to my main HTPC. Thanks a lot for all of your hard work!
Edit: Noticed one more thing. It seems to not like apostrophes in the TV show's title. For example, America's Got Talent doesn't get added to the library.
To be able to find out if a movie or episode already exist I would probably need to mess around in some databases and it would be more work than what it is worth. I guess it could be solved with JSON-RPC but it's not anything I will look at right now.
I will look into what prevents America's Got Talent from being recognized.
