Updating video scrapers for Frodo
#1
Hi all,

Scrapers can now optionally provide an "aspect" flag on the <thumb> URLs they provide XBMC. At the moment "banner" and "poster" are supported. i.e. instead of:

<thumb>url</thumb>

you should return (when you know the aspect ratio of the image, ofcourse)

<thumb aspect="poster">url</thumb>

TheTVDB.com scraper has been updated, but this doesn't just apply to tv - movies scrapers could return different image types, though I suspect they'll all be returning "poster" in general. Music scrapers will probably just return thumb sized images (album cover, artist art tends to be square) so in that case using "thumb" is preferable.

So:

"banner" if it's a wide banner image, like thetvdb.com uses for show banners.
"poster" if it's a tall poster image, like thetvdb.com's posters or themoviedb.org.
"thumb" for everything else typically - this is optional, you don't need the aspect flag present - if it's not present, XBMC will assume it's a thumb.

Cheers,
Jonathan
