What is it about showmix that requires skin-specific fanart/thumbs?
If/when my other changes get added to the SVN, I'll consider making you a scraper that you could at least offer as a download on your site; I doubt those options would make it into the official XBMC SVN.
thanks for your statement.
the fanarts are just an addition as we already have a place to store images. so the scraper ideally should target to the artist thumbs only. they are not needed in showmix, but are prepared to look good in it. go have a look on my site and you see what i mean
yeah, that was my target, as you seem to have the skills to write a scraper (while i'm a total noob on that) i would like to offer showmix users the possibility to get the artist thumbs from my site without downloading them manually.
the way of storing them will not change, so queries should always work the same (until i know how to create an api for that. i have skills in creating websites in php and a database, but not for building an api yet).
for sure that is nothing to have in svn for the masses (although those thumbs will surely look good in other skins, too), so whenever you have the time and the will to do me a favour, that would be great.
