Description

From: https://github.com/MythTV/mythweb/pull/6

A couple of items in here around video metadata

If coverart isn't available, but fanart is, then pull that in, and use that for the video. Change from using the old imdb.pl to using tmdb.py/tmdb3.py. pulls in all the xml and parses it to display movies matching and then populates the database once selected.

I'm rejecting this one. Any changes to improve the Video Library in MythWeb should be using the Services API to access and manipulate data. The metadata grabbers can be accessed through Video/LookupVideo. Video artwork can be accessed through Content/GetVideoArtwork. New artwork can be downloaded using Content/DownloadFile, although this method will need to be altered to allow a filename to be defined. Also, a new Video/PutVideo? method will need to be added to push metadata changes back to the database.
