ok i made a few files, and uploaded them to the XL repository page i made for Grooby and can give to others, if they ask.
Where you can get a login and upload XL specific content, all in one area, with no popups and ads.
you can go directly there and view all files, http://www.cyberdyne-sys.com/xl
or here they are individually, all clips have no sound just visual.
Feel free to use as you see fit.

Almost done. I am now working on pulling the artwork down. It is a multi-step process with TMDb.org. Hopefully will have something done in the next couple of days.

Get Fanart from TMDb based on Xlobby Db

Postby lpg on Fri Mar 19, 2010 4:45 am

Get%20Fanart%20Movies%20xml%20pg4.png


Well you can find my first draft at http://sites.google.com/site/lpgshtpc/Home/program-to-get-fanart-for-xlobby. It is still rough around the edges and doesn't multitask enough, but it does download the fanart and put it in the movie directory under a Fanart folder. The time it takes remindes me of the update time for my apple iphone. So you should get it going and take a nap when you are downloading the images.

I put togeather a little tutorial that is at the link above. The program download is at the end of the tutorial.

Let me know what you think

Thanks Wes and Andy,

After the dust settles I am sure there will be somemore suggestions to make it more useful. I also have access to all kinds of info and can create other databases or modify the Xlobby file.

Something to watch for. When I was testing my server caught a virus in one of the Jpegs. When this happened the download seemed to hang. First off I did not know that jpegs could have viruses. Secondly I need to look to see if there is an error I am not tracking.

Based on the speed of this especially for large collections, I think the initial load needs to be run as a standalone. Maybe a plugin would be good for other info, updates, and management.

I am really looking forward to seeing how you guys implement this.
