I'm looking to get the AniDB scraper to retrieve 'episode information' for the opening and closing themes for anime. I have a lot of creditless openings and would like to connect it with anidb.net. Also, I have some of the trailers, which they also have info for, that I would let to get as well. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.
I actually modified my anidb scraper a while ago to include OPs, EDs and trailers by mapping them as specials starting from episode 101 for OPs and EDs, and 201 for trailers (e.g OP1 would S00E101, Trailer 1 would be S00E201)... However, it didn't work totally as expected. XBMC automatically "corrects" the episode numbers for each season so that the first episode listed is always episode 1, so when the series had no genuine specials, OP1 (episode 101), being the "first" special episode, would get corrected to S00E01, and all subsequent episodes would then be 100 less than expected, with Trailer 1 then being S00E101. So the OP1 file on my computer, being named S00E101, would match against Trailer 1 when scraped (or against nothing if there were no trailers listed). Not ideal.
Didn't affect me too much, though, since I compile my own version of XBMC anyway, I just removed the bit of code that corrects the episode numbers, but that's hardly a solution for everybody.
