"Smarter" artwork detection in mythvideo gallery and list

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Anduin Withers
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythvideo Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: artwork detection
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have implemented some smarter artwork detection for mythvideo gallery and list. In short it works like this.. if there is no artwork for a video, the artwork for the folder is chosen as a sane default, also if the folder has no artwork the artwork for the parent folder is choosen.

This make sense if you have a lot of series, and do not want to assign images to every episode and or season.

If you will not accept this patch please give me some feetback, so I can convert it to something you will accept!

I would find this functionality very helpful... is there any particular reason it is being intentionally not accepted, or is it simply not being accepted?

The developers are on strike until we get paid.

Replying to stuartm:

First, a correction, where I said "is it simply not being accepted?" I meant "has it simply not been accepted?" (It's late/early... sorry)

Secondly: really? Or were you just responding to me sounding like I was being an ass?

I was being an arsehole. My point was generally this - there are 400 open tickets at the moment. We generally look at tickets in order of personal interest because we are doing this in our free time. So yes, some tickets are open for months whilst others are closed in days.

The fact that this ticket is still open and hasn't been re-assigned just means that no-one has looked at it yet. If it was rejected then the ticket would have been closed with a message saying so.

(In [21277]) Closes #3342. Add a fallback for files within a MythVideo? directory to use the folder image if all other attempts to find a coverfile fail. Good for the metadata challenged or extremely lazy.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
