Description

I'm not sure if you've already planned on it or not, but would be nice to have an option to turn on/off the auto tmdb lookup feature. Thanks!!

Yes I will add that.

Any particular reason why you don't want it?

How will tmdb work?
Will it gather and show artwork and backgrounds in the main list? Or will it show them once the file has been clicked, on another page?
I ask because the Navi-X plugin does not use tmdb in the main list, but once the file has been clicked.
In the main list would be so much better.

Facanferff told me "About your idea of TMDB to parse information in list view, I thought that but it is not implemented because if you have about 100 movies it means the plugin will parse 200 more http requests (search and info)"

I have around 600 movies!

It works in the main list.

This is a screenshot from my Showtime: http://i.imgur.com/EjSMB.png

The data is stored in Showtime's sqlite database so it only needs to fetch it once.

Better they seek and also display when selecting a folder.
From what I understand from the screenshot, as I Andreas also has a folder for each movie.

Better yet, if by pressing the "O" or other button in the folder, the same play the movie file folder

Excellent!!!!

It would also be a good idea to set some folders (smb://...movies, smb://...series), and scan them periodically, at start the program in background or even manually.

Well, it seems to get movies wrong once in awhile, especially when it comes to sequels/prequels. Also it seems to try to query TMDB every time a folder is opened, even if there's nothing new in it from the last time I opened it.

A solution the bad scanning: NFOs files with the correct link to TMDB, in the same folder of the movie, with the same name (Alien.mkv + Alien.nfo)

I'm use in other player(xtreamer), and this have option to search TMDB with "Folder Name" or "File Name".. this resolve any "wrong results"
