just tried the Mac version and looks like none of my movies are found.
i access the movies on a nas system and they are organized in different volumes :
/Volumes/DVD/DVD/DVD - HD
underneath all movies are stored in different directories ( one directory / movie with the exception of sequels these are stored in subdirectories)
anyway i just got the searching for movies box and after couple of secounds nothing was found.
this happens regardless of the xbmc method ( database or xml file )
Any idea what i am doing wrong ? ( ember and other mediamanager find more or less everything.
Looking forward to your help
What file extensions do your movies have? Maybe I missed one (like .mp4, which will be added in the next release...)
Have you added all your movie directories in the settings dialog? After adding and hitting the "Save" button in the settings dialog, could you just restart MediaElch and leave it open for a few minutes?

- One-Click Scrape - It'd be great to be able to right-click on a movie and have it 'search' for the info
- Intelligent Scrape - Instead of searching using the whole file name "Normal 2007 DVDRip XviD-CuCu" it might search for just "Normal 2007"
- Hover or alt click poster/backdrop zoom - You only get a thumnail view of the posters. I'm rather anal about my posters and I hate it when it scrapes a foreign one, I can't tell if the one I'm picking is or not because the writing is too small
- File-renaming. This is a big one. Ember had a brilliant customisable renaming/moving system, it'd be great to see something similar implemented.
- UK certifications. Currently TheMovieDB only scrapes American ones, an option would be nice.
- Ignore/delete sample files
Thanks for the input. Some of your requested features are already on the roadmap (different types of certifications, adjustable size of previews, file renaming).
Do you think one click scrape is really needed? Currently you just have to choose the movie and click the "Search" button...
Intelligent scrape would require some smart algorithm and a little bit of guessing what's the name of the movie and what not. DVDRip, xvid and so on can be skipped, but "CuCu" could also be the name of the movie. I don't know if there are some very common naming schemes like, in your example, "movie title year other stuff".
Ignoring sample files would also require some kind of criterion to decide wether it is a sample or not. Skip files less than xx MB or skip files with "sample" in the name...
