Thanks billyad2000 - did some more testing after your replay
Existing Movie folder structure: Folder Name = IMDB Movie Name
Run XBMC Movie Companion 1.100 - scan for new movies
I also tried renaming trailer to "movie.trailer.avi" but the result was the same.
*During scan - each time log shows 2 files found without nfo files and thus 2 nfo files are created.
Regarding my earlier request:
1) *this may already work, but with my problem above I cannot confirm* Your XBMC-DB tool created nfo files with a <trailer></trailer> tag - so I am wondering if the XBMC Media Companion uses local trailers to fill the tag when creating the nfo file?
2) BTW - I really like your idea about storing local actor nfo and thumbs, kindof the same reason why I think scraping trailers would be a good idea (save on bandwidth in the long run). Honestly don't have time to sort through each and every trailer that I download, but when it comes time to sit back and watch a movie it is sure handy to be able to watch a couple of different movie trailers to get you in the mood to watch one of those movies.
How I presently download trailers:
1) Open up my laptop in front of the TV
2) Run Apple Movie Trailer plugin in XBMC
3) Set AMT to Download files
4) Go through my movie folder alphabetically comparing to AMT trailer list
5) Individually select movies and exit out of trailer before it plays (after all I don't want to get excited about watching a movie right now)
*Yes a long process all to achieve a relaxing movie experience later in the day
Thanks again for the tool
