TheTVDB: How does it work?
#1
Hi,

currently I am analyzing the tvdb-scraper (for Dharma) and have a question about the (general) scraper-behaviour:

Inside <GetSearchResults> the found tv shows will be returned.
And one result contains a url where information about the tv show can be found.
So far so good Smile

In case of the tvdb-scraper this url points to a zip-archive.
Now I am wondering how this is handled by the scraper-engine, because the zip-file itself contains 3 xml-files.
Which one will be used in the following <GetDetails>-call?
Are all these xmls combined to one large xml file or how does it work? Smile

Best Regards,
MKay

Yep, exactly. In case a .zip is found we extract and append the contents (see https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...l.cpp#L223).
Always read the online manual (wiki), FAQ (wiki) and search the forum before posting.
Do not PM or e-mail Team-Kodi members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules (wiki).
Please read the pages on troubleshooting (wiki) and bug reporting (wiki) before reporting issues.
