[RELEASE] WhatTheMovie addon - guess movies by snapshots

Image Image

Most buttons and labels should be self-explanatory, but here is a little overview:
  • You can zoom the shot by hovering or focusing the picture.
  • Above the shot you will see who submitted this nice shot, how often it has already been solved and who solved it first.
  • Under the picture you see the shot's id and release date. You can jump to a specific shot id via the jump button, the "#" down right.
  • In the middle up to five of the languages WTM knows the movie's title in are displayed (You can choose them in the addon settings).
  • In the first button row the four outer buttons are the navigation buttons (First, Previous, Next and Last).
  • The three middle ones are "Back" - this will jump to the last seen shot, "Guess"- the main button to type a guess, and of course the "Random"-button.
  • The two buttons down left are the "Favourite"- and "Bookmark"-buttons. You will make the uploader happy if you favourite their shots. Bookmarking is for just not forgetting this one :-)
  • Down to the right is the "show solution" button (active for shots from "The Archive") and the jump button.
  • Down center you can see the amount of votes, the rating bar and the overall-rating/your-rating label.



You can define your own hotkeys for most of the frequently used functions (default keys in brackets):
  • Guess (context key)
  • Random (play)
  • Back (rewind)
  • Next Shot (page down)
  • Previos Shot (page up)
  • Jump to given shot id (show info)
  • Bookmark this shot (home)
  • Favourite this shot (end)
  • You can rate the shot with the number keys, 1 => 1, ..., 9 => 9, 0 => 10 (higher is better)

Here a list of the main addon features:
  • Log in with your whatthemovie.com account
  • Solve, favourite, bookmark, and rate shots
  • Show the next, next unsolved, and next random shot
  • Instantly go back to the last shot shown
  • Zoom the snapshot
  • Rate with number keys: 1 to 10 (0=>10 points)
  • Set random and navigation options
  • Automatically jump to the next or random-next shot if your guess was right
  • Select five languages to see if WTM knows the movie title in this languages
  • Set hotkeys for the functions: guess, random, back, next, previous, jump, bookmark, favourite and solve
  • Costomize the look - you can configure the visibility of shot properties: posted by, solved, id, date, flags, tool and navigation buttons

Currently the addon is translated into English and German (updates and more languages are welcome)
