Currently working on default support using <moviefilename>-<arttype>.ext
This means it will download and name MOVIE artwork according to this.
Example: "9 (2009)-disc.png" instead of "disc.png"
It will also force rename any old files using "<arttype>.ext" to "<moviefilename>-<arttype>.ext"
It will not yet force update the database to point to the new file if renamed. Still working on that.
It may be finished and ready for testing during next week.

Still a lot untested. Just wanted to let you know.

hey martijn Smile
wanna ask if u have any news about this new feature ? i have scraped all of my movies this week ( every movie have now the right name and year )
i did it with mediaelch and the images ( poster,banner,fanart,landscape) where saved as "moviename"-poster.jpg...etc
when i go to xbmc and scrape the movies ( with local scraper ) it downloads new images again ! and save them just as poster.jpg, banner.jpg...etc

so how is the future plan - will we stay on the small names ( just poster.jpg ) or will it be changed to the full names ?

thx in advance Smile

Did you enable "Movies are in seperate folders that match the movie title" when you configured the scraper? Because you probably don't want to do that if you are naming each movie file (and associated artwork) with the movie name prefix.

All,

I just recently started receiving the error "Error Downloading File" when using the "Manual" method of assigning art. I also noticed that the normal way is also no longer downloader art either. After checking the revision history on GitHub, it appears that the fanart.tv API coding was changed on 7/18/14 to account for the V3 API.

Here is the link to the recent API code changes.
https://github.com/XBMC-Addons/script.ar...55fd738d0b

I tried rolling-back to Artwork Downloader version 12.0.28, but this did not resolve the issue, presumably because the legacy API is no longer working. I then reinstalled version 12.0.29 with no luck. I also tried the full array of normal troubleshooting methods to no avail. I am running Gotham 13.1 with the Aeon Nox 4.1.9.9 "Aeon Nox Gotham Plus" skin.

Is this is a known issue at this time? Is there anything else I can do on my end?

Thanks for your help and insight!

My system just updated to accommodate the fanart.tv update and mine appears fine when doing automatic grab for whole library. But I went in to see if any new settings were added and the pages were all blanked out I could press down and it would scroll crazy. Haven't checked back since restarting so could of been a glitch.
