[WIP] HTPC-Manager Beta, Manage XBMC, Sabnzbd, SickBeard with one app
I merged the commit from mbw2001 into the master. Keep in mind, this will not simply fix the images for everyone.

I am really cracking my head over this because images are what makes htpcManager look good. But it relies strongly on PIL and because PIL is difficult to install on various systems, i am considering using/creating an external image resize api service (api) and store the response in the userdata dir. This would resize images for every platform without a problem, but requires an internet connection from the device running htpc manager. The downside of this all is that htpc Manager would no longer be a stand-alone application, because it uses an api.

I can not find a decent image resize api wich met my requirements, so creating one myself might be the best option.

Things to consider:
- users depend on 3rd party (image resize service)
- Requires internet connection
- User upload speed
- Bandwidth usage

Is there anyone who thinks this is a good or bad idea, and why? Or any other solutions?


A (temporarily) fix could also be; serving the un-scaled image if PIL can not be found.

Or maybe combine these two options:
- use Pil if available
- no PIL? Use external api to resize
- No PIL and no internet connection? use fullsize image. You are probably running on a local environmet so serving big images is probably not an issue.
