could it be that your addon will load the first time in use a "long" time and then it was very fast ? When i use it, the first time i select an actor it took 20 seconds. When i use it a second, third ........ time with other actors it took only 2-3 seconds for the info.

If it is so, is there any chance that your addon is initialize at startup from xbmc in the background ?

Here's the Greek translation of the addon, based on version 0.1.8:

I have a question about the script. It has been integrated in the Aeon Nox skin, at least the actor's information, using the code provided in FrostBox's original post. If a non-Latin alphabet language is used in XBMC, such as Greek, Russian, Chinese, etc., the script cannot read the corresponding "as" between the actor's name and his/her role in the movie.

For example: "Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump" will be read fine if the selected language is English or any other Latin based alphabet. But in a non-Latin alphabet language the script cannot read the corresponding "as", probably because it is written in non-Latin characters (e.g. in Greek it is "Tom Hanks ως Forrest Gump"). This causes a bunch of problems; first of all the script pulls up a manual search dialog, where you have to remove all the text but the actor's name. After it finds the actor, the window that comes up still has as a header the name together with the role ("Tom Hanks ως Forrest Gump"), not only the actor's name. This means that any changes you make in the thumbs or fanarts will be retained in the database for "Tom Hanks ως Forrest Gump" not "Tom Hanks".

Is there any way of fixing this? Thanks.

EDIT: I see you've fixed the bug in version 0.2.0. Many thanks for the quick response!

could you take a look at this Debug Log. If a call an actor first time all is ok, then i change the movie and call a actor and then xbmc jumps back to homemenu.

Hi,

i have installed at my livingroom pc the glass skin to test there the metadata actor function. Under glass skin all is working fine. Then i switch back to aeon nox and also there is running fine. Glass skin installed many addons and scripts automatic, is there maybe any dependency to any addon that aeon not install automatic ?

@FrostBox
Is there any dependency between my actual myvideoxx.db and your actor.db ? Background of the question is, if i change my videodb or make a rescan and the movies or tv-shows become an other id , will your addon scan actor new or will it get info from the existing actor db ?
