go to sf.net/projects/xbmc

go to code -> svn browse.

browse to the file in question. select download

for the lazy; http://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/*...finity.xml

note that it won't work 100% on xbox as the searchstringencoding hasn't been merged yet

Hi Spiff, I also included the new parameter for the encoding, but I think that this change is not implemented yet in the lastest t3ch build, don't you?

Sorry, I didn't read your last message.

Then I report for everybody:

The xml fix the scraper and it work again like before.
I have implemented a bit change that allow searching using spanish characters, but this functionallity will work only with the next release of xbmc, not the current one.

I have in mind, trying to use the name of the actors to search in imdb for the picture, but I don't know if this is possible, because it needs to search again in a different xml... This is a "to do" for me.

I am trying to do this, and as an example I am looking at imdb.com scraper. The problem is that I cannot get cast thumbs using imdb scraper. It works in the last compilation released by t3ch (2008-06-30)?

Thanks

Hi!, I did it!
Filmaffinity scrapper looks for the cast photos in imdb.
It is slower, but it worth it!

Also include a setting menu to use the old methode of getting cast (faster but no photos)

Hi Spiff, I have tried to upload the file into sourceforge but it says I don't have any privileges to do this. It seems the security policies has changed.

How can I upload my file?

Another thing. With the last compilation I didn't get SearchStringEncoding to work Sad

thanks!
