Video poster filename is not always unique

Description

Posters are downloaded into a single directory, and the assumption is that each poster has a unique filename. This assumption does not hold. I have seen several times where two different movies have the same poster filename. This is because the file is under different paths on the server.

For example: http://ia.ec.imdb.com/media/imdb/01/I/88/41/61/10m.jpg http://ia.ec.imdb.com/media/imdb/01/I/14/36/61/10m.jpg http://ia.ec.imdb.com/media/imdb/01/I/08/78/91/10m.jpg

Symptom: You get the same (latest downloaded) poster for several movies.

I would solve this by turning the filename into the file's MD5/SHA1 sum.

Yes, it downloads them all to the same directory, it then renames them to inetrefnumber.pictureextension. If there is a real bug here you must include more detail.
