Any caveats when switching from Universal Scraper?
BTW, "Generic" sounds really cheap, why not name it "Basic"/"Allround"/"Smart" Scraper... :-)

there aren't any known ones at least. but since it's new and not too many people have used it so far i feel there might be a few ones left to discover.

 as for the name, guess i'm not that creative when it comes to picking one. 'allround' sounds nice though...

I vote Smart Scraper. That sounds so good. And considering all the amazing features and work thats gone into this scraper... It kind of is smart in its own unique way. really fits. BTW, amazing work developing this bro. for the first time litrally all my music got reconised and scraped perfectly. kodi looks really good now thanks to your awsome work. 100% recomend people give this a tryout. so far... works great. the only other thing left that needs working on is that name ;D
