I think imdbapi provides not enough data, I would use TMDb.
Is themoviedb.com available from China?

Edit: Sorry, i mean http://www.themoviedb.org/

I used to use themoviedb before, but wasn't too happy. If my memory is right, themoviedb does not provide plots. Also, the IMDB ratings were obviously not available.

I thought that imdbapi.com basically has the same info as imdb (even the posters and fanart). Memory wrong?

I can't test imdbapi, "service unavailable" atm. I'll test it again later.
Plots are available on themoviedb in many languages, only short plot is missing. No IMDB ratings, that's true.

Example:

Movie.part1.mkv
Movie.part2.mkv
Movie.partx.mkv etc...
Movie-trailer.mov

XBMC will detect and play trailer just fine, but ember will not see the trailer.

If you name it:
Movie.part1-trailer.mov

Ember will detect it.
Would it be possible to get a fix, so that ember will also see the first naming convention?

PS:
If someone has problems downloading fix4, I've put it on my webserver here:
http://www.prolek.no/dl/ember_media_mana...5_fix4.rar



/OM

I could program it, but that would mean that the naming would no longer homogenous. So I will not do it. Sorry.

Why you dont edit the trailer to the proper name?

Thanks for the suggestion, it was the tool I was using originally. But it's only from within XBMC and there is no preview of what it is scraping, as the GUI mode is not enabled in the skin I am using.

It looks like there is an option for it under the Movies > Ember Native Movie Scrapers > Get Fanart > Save Fanart In > \extrafanart , but it doesn't seem to work. Also does not remember the setting between sessions.
Can this also be looked at and fixed?

I guess I will open official tickets for both bugs.

Thanks.

Update: 1) there was already a ticket for this, #75. 2) Created ticket #80.

I have check the extrafanart option.

These four options have no effect on the code. I think that these options have not yet been implemented.

Hey just had a strange issue with Ember. It was working fine then all of a sudden cracked it. Now when I open the software I keep getting the same issue.

http://pastebin.com/CC1pzLjC


I even tried creating a new install of it but there is some sort of database issue.

http://pastebin.com/B0hvag6b

is this an error with SQLite?

The second link is invalid.

Sounds like a faulty database (Media.emm).
Just try a clean install of Ember (not just overwrite the old files).
Use the version 1.3.0.5 Fix5

Hi there,

I wonder if there's the possibility to separate data and settings in one of the Ember's future versions?

As far as I experienced some settings are currently stored in the .emm file and if you need to delete it (see previous post) then you have to re-configure Ember.

There's a few hundred files....

But, when you populate the check mark for trailer found, why don't you just look for any file with trailer in it, instead of looking for [moviefilename]-trailer.
This should not break any consistency... MediaCenterMaster have no problem finding the trailer in the above mentioned cases.

When you have stacked files, it makes more sense to name the trailer [Movie]-trailer instead of [movie].part1-trailer.

Just my 2 cents..

No, "Media.emm" is the movie and tvshows database (all scraped data). All settings are saved in Settings.xml and AdvancedSettings.xml.
