+ Added an option in the video manager setup to look up for video title. Before the only option was imdb number. This is handy when the lookup from the video filename fails. Lets you tipe a couple of variations, or a totally different name.

+ Changed videomananger.cpp to display the movie name , if only 1 item was found. Before it was accepted without confirmation, yielding in wrong movie data being entered in the database without the user being aware of it. I ended up with a reated R movie poster for a kids movie ;)

(In [15175]) Closes #3684

Applying a work-alike patch to the one submitted by jmortensen A verizon net.

This patch adds a new "dialog" for manual title searches (saving one the arduous journey to the metadata editor). It isn't remote friendly and will not be until moved to MythUI.

Additionally it moves one step closer to interruptible searches, the bulk of this patch is work done with that goal in mind.

This also adds a test and artwork directory.

  • test
    • This directory contains scripts used while testing some of the async changes. Eventually to contain other MythVideo? tests.
  • artwork
    • Raw artwork, currently the .xcf file for the new search dialog background.

A note to theme maintainers:

The new "entersearchtitle" container is optional.

Also mv-search-popup.png represents the zenith of my artistic abilities, any better default would be welcomed.
