Thumbs Up  [PATCH] DVD Identification (DVDid)
Post: #1
I've written a patch to allow XBMC to query the discident.com database and retrieve the DVD's title based on the disk fingerprint. (disk fingerprint is basically an MD5 hash of the disks file structure)

This will allow skinners to use System.DVDTitle in their skin to make use of this function.

See Patch: http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/8436

Let me know what you guys think.

EDIT: To take it a step further I'm hoping to have the DVD metadata scraped after recognizing a disk and expose that information to the GUI as well. For more information see:

Would be great if also discident could supply a imdb id for each movie possible Smile
