[Feature Request] Slide view for actor thumb in the info dialog
#1
I have the thumb of all the actor in my movie stores locally (1500+ pic) at 240x360 resolution . There is a way to have a better view for the actor thumb, like the slide view for the covers ?

A mockup for my idea :

Anyway... Great work. The 2.00 is impressive. The plugin/script integration is the way...

Sorry for bad english. Sad

Do you have to do something to enable character icons as your above screenshot? Or did your scraper pull the actor.jpgs for each actor on its own?

Definatley like that view and since Im going to try to re-scan my movies again with IMDB scraper, figured I would ask.

I have grab all the pic from google the i cut and resize them with Gimp. then i put all the pic in a shared folder. Then i edited the .nfo file for all my movies with a home made vb.net program.

When i have finished to do this for all my movies i will upload a pack with all the actor thumb

not really.

When you have a huge amount of actor pic named like "Brad Pitt.jpg", "George Cloney" ect in the same directory (for ex: M:\Pictures\Actor\" a simple script can recursively change this

Code:
<actor>
    <name>Jim Carrey</name>
    <role>Carl Allen</role>
    [b]<thumb>http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/[email protected]@._V1._SY275_SX400_.jpg</thumb>[/b]
/actor>
<actor>
    <name>Zooey Deschanel</name>
    <role>Allison</role>
    <thumb>http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/[email protected]@._V1._SY275_SX400_.jpg</thumb>
</actor>

to this

Code:
<actor>
    <name>[b]Jim Carrey[/b]</name>
    <role>Carl Allen</role>
    <thumb>M:\Pictures\Actor\[b]Jim Carrey[/b].jpg</thumb>
</actor>
<actor>
    <name>[b]Zooey Deschanel[/b]</name>
    <role>Allison</role>
    <thumb>M:\Pictures\Actor\[b]Zooey Deschanel.jpg[/b]</thumb>
  </actor>
[...]

Simple.

The Hard work is get the HUGE amount of actor pictures ... But when the collection is ready everyone can use it

Hi to all, I searched on this subforum for a feature that is related to the request by francyboy, so I write here instead of opening a new thread:
Since I downloaded (my thanks) francyboy's thumb collection, that is cool but hard to "use", I suggest to add an option (or it has to be a script? I'm not so expert) acting this way: periodically search in a selected folder for a jpg or a tbn file with the same name of the actor.. if there is a match, set this file, if not leave the one previously downloaded from the web (pic of the actor, empty image...)...so a sort of local scraper...

Another quite unrelated question: I'm not interested in a biography of the cast, but a complete filmography (not only of the movies in the db) should be quite useful... but I suppose this is up to xbmc developers..

I'm sorry for any mistake, I seldom write in english and I hate web translators!
And I'm sorry also if my request sounds stupid or banal for you more expert users.

Mario

P.S. this is my first post, but I follow Xbmc and Transparency since many months ago, so I forgotten to greet you all and congratulate for your great work Wink

none of those are handled by the skin, i think you'd need a scraper for that,
so i'm afraid you need to take your questions elsewhere ;-)
