That could be....
just look in the XBMC logfile, maybe there is something useful.
Ah looks to be slower due to downloading the images of actors!! Sent you pm with link to text file from log.
When I set debug mode on in xbmc I can see it downloading the actor images from the URLs listed in Ember.
I've noticed once you've added a movie in xbmc, when you remove the files folder/remove from library and clean the library, when you re-add the same movie files and re-do it all, it doesn't need to download the actors again. I think its the function "CVideoDatabase"
It must get stored in the xbmc database. Say if one movie has Eddy Murphy in it, that movie downloads his image, when another movie has Eddy Murphy in it, does XBMC download his image again going via the url put in the nfo via ember, or does it link to xbmc database? Slightly getting off topic... soz, but at least I know now why it takes longer when I have net connection compared to when I don't.
I guess other people knew all this, or they just don't care or notice?
I'm thinking of removing the actor images links from the .nfo files Ember created. I assume theres a setting in Ember to not put links to the actors in the nfo it creates? Thing is if there if no link in the nfo, what does xbmc do, does it then go look for the images or leaves them blank?
There is an option in the Ember (see Movies-> Scrapers images & Trailers-> "Do Not Save URLs to NFO). If this option is enabled, the actor-photo-, poster- and fanarts-links are not stored in the NFO.
Please make a test and tell us then whether the XBMC images only once downloaded.
