Can someone point me to the function where XBMC searches the ".actors" subfolder?
I'd like to make a patch that allows an option for the actor images to be searched in a single folder and for that folder to be set in "advancedsettings".
also if set upon exporting the images don't get copied multiple times to several different ".actors" folders... but rather to the global ".actors" folder.

Can you please make a separate option for "Movies" and "TV Shows" if you do this?
Aternatively allow the global ".actors" folder to contain multiple photos for each actor, something which could also be used for screensavers / slideshows, or an actor information view.
The reason that I ask for this is that "TV Show" actors on TheTVDB.com have unique pictures for each televisions show.
Quote:Actor Image RulesSo if an actor or actress plays in two different sci-fi television shows then he or she will have two district photos, with him wearing the costume dress for each show.
For example look at Amanda Tapping's photo for Stargate SG-1 http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=72449
and compare it to Amanda Tapping's photo for Sanctuary http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=80159&lid=7
While on IMDb http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0850102/ and on TheMovieDB.org http://www.themoviedb.org/person/26087-amanda-tapping for movies she only have one main photo.
Thanks for considering this.

I like this idea, and its good to see that there is a set size on the images now.
I would really like to see the whole cache more organized. for example when
removing a plugin it cleans up its own mess.. Good choice in an actress by the way..
