AFter getting things up and running just fine, I'm wondering if I'm not seeing something obvious...

What are you guys using the downloader for? I've ran it for the past couple of days, and I'm pulling in about 2-3gigs of trailers per day, but these are for movies that will be a long time before I actually have the movie, and I'm also getting tons of trailers for movies I'd never have an interest in. Are you just stockpiling the trailers away for the future and cherry picking what you want? Seems like a TON of wasted bandwidth if so.

It was designed to be used with the Home Cinema Experience script. With that script, you can mimic the experiecne you would have at a theater.

ie. Trivia, followed by a Coming attractions intro, trailers, followed by one or more movies in a row.

You can also filter the trailers (for instance not download documentaries or only download action and drama)

ijourneaux the trailers nfo is supposed to be the same as the file name i.e "the island-trailer " and "the Island-trailer.nfo "... as the nfo is not created anymore with the same filename . this recently had caused CE not to work / play trailers. Now that i amended all the nfo's to have the same name as the file CE is back playing trailers normally.
Can you look into it. Meanwhile I can try and reinstall and redo the config again to see if that makes any difference

Here is mine

This include a new config flag, "ConsiderTheatricalandNumberedTrailersasIdentical" that for the purposes of Exculsions only Teaser Trailer and one Trailer (named Trailer, Theatrical Traler Trailer No. 1, Trailer 1, Trailer No. 2, etc) will be downloaded. This requies the latest version of HD-Trailer.net Downloader. There is also a bug fix to correctly add the -trailer to the .nfo file.



Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <!--Set in order of preference. If doesn't exist, will skip. Ex: "720p,1080p,480p"-->

    <add key="MetadataDownloadFolder" value="g:\trailers" />
    <!--Setting this to true will create a folder for each trailer off the TrailerDownloadFolder and MetadataDownloadFolder-->
    <add key="CreateFolder" value="true" />

    <add key="GrabPoster" value="true" />
    <!--Set to True to save files with XBMC -trailer appended-->

Unfortunately HD-Trailer.Net Downloader just deletes them after they have reached the expiration time set in the config file. Moving them to the recycle bin would be a good option to have. Will implement when I get a chance.

HD-Trailer.Net Downloader will prompt you for confirmation before overwriting the config file if one already exists.

Just letting everyone know that there is a new version of HD-Trailer.Net Downloader available that uses a new web page parser developedb by matsul. As a test bed, the alpha version 1.91 is set up to use TrailerFreaks as a source.

I have to come up with a way to switch parsers based on the feed that is selected but haven't got that setup yet.

A couple of other minor changes: The config file is backed up you asked the setup file to overwrite the config file. When cleaning up old trailers (if number of days is specified) movies are moved to the recycle bin.

The new parser makes it relatively easy to create new parsers, for instance, foreign language trailer sites.

What other features would people like to see?

Update: Just created a version of HD-Trailers.Net DOwnloader that can use the HD-Trailers.net RSS feed, most of the HD-Trailers.net webpages, the TrailerFreaks.Net RSS feed and the MovieMaze geman language trailer site. The possible urls are listed in the config file.

It looks like both HD-Trailers.Net and TrailerFreaks are only using Yahoo (at least recently).
