Question  Adding cast pictures to OFDB scraper?
Post: #1
It seem that in the newer releases there is a posibility to show a picture of an actor in the casts.
I'd like to add this feature in the OFDB scraper.xml since the cast needs to be fixed anyway.
Is there any documentation on how to do this in scraper xml.
Havn't found something here:

the authorative documentation for the scrapers are really imdb.xml - in doubt investigate what it does.

anyways, it's quite simple. output xml in the format

<actor><thumbs><thumb>...</thumb><thumb>..</thumb></thumbs><name>something</name><role>somethingelse</role></actor>

where multiple thumb urls ofc are only an option (i.e. one is enough)

Has the thumb-url to be an web url or can it also handle files on samba shares?
