I am trying to figure out how the thumbs and fanart download works.
Opening a movie entry and selecting the Thumb tab, I see several URLs on the left, is there no preview function?
Do you really have to choose and apply a thumb to see it?
(once you select, it goes back to the top)
The Fanart tab is not doing anything from me (not finding any URLs)

Preview function : "Download Thumbs", the first button at right
Other button :
- "Load a Thumb" for loading thumb since hard disk.
-"Choose selected Thumb" : Enjoy ;-)

My translation are not perfect, sorry.

Download does not do a preview for me (not sure how it would work anyways?).
Clicking on the URL after downloading does not preview it, only "Choose Selected Thumb" will show the thumb and then there is now way back to the original, unless you know exactly which one it is.
Which is very unintuitive and inconvenient.

can be that the column of the thumbs is shifted, has you this image :

if not, with the slide you can move and resize the columns.
Also try in option to click on “Default Options”.

True, no preview, and what's worse, no slider (and Thumb is enabled in "Seleccion les colonnes...")

Edit: Just did what we keep on bitching to our user's about, did not read it through, default options returned the preview. Thanks.

You do not fetch thumbs from impawards?
How about Fanart, is it working for you?

VERY promising!

i'm sure i can use that a lot for my offline media, especially the meta editor section.

how do you handle translations, is there an xml file containing strings? if yes, i could give it an hour to do a german translation.

any plans for directly accessing tvshow and music database, too?

cheers,azido :;):

Things will revert to the broken state after a restart, not good.

May I suggest that a mouseover on the location field also previews the thumb? (like it does on the thumb field)

How can I get the layout shown on the french forum?

not for the moment.

a) you really should consider adding translation files to read from, thus the community can contribute their translations and make your app just as multilingual as the crowd using xbmc is.

b) too bad. that would just open it's full potential. ideally one should be able to select at startup which db to load and use.

Once you get the kinks worked out and get better translation, this looks to be a very useful tool. Keep up the good work and as others have stated. Being able to do edit the TV and Music Data would be great.

Could this app work with other media managers as a bridge to update XMBC? I've been using EMM, but I'm not keen on clicking on 1,000 movies within XBMC to add them to its library.

From what I'm reading, my movies already have to be in XBMC (in Library or file mode?) to be able to update them?

Thanks,
jawgee

XBNE can work without XBMC, then it works with files Nfo and then creates its own database
I'm also developing a version for dialogue with XBMC on XBOX or others through the HTML server.

Adjustments to work without XBMC:
