Fanart directory setting inconsistent

The fanart directory setting in the setting table that is saved by the settings screen is "mythvideo.fanartDir", the setting that is read by videodlg.cpp is "VideoFanartDir?". So far as I can tell the more standard is that written by the settings screen, so this patch changes videodlg.cpp to use that.

I also noticed that "VideoArtworkDir?" is used - I've changed this also to "mythvideo.screenshotDir" as that appears in the settings table - but it isn't clear to me that VideoArtworkDir? is screenshot, as opposed to banner.

In looking to work out what VideoArtworkDir? might be I noticed that in videodlg.cpp, m_artdir and m_fandir have quite different usage - I kind of assumed they would be similar. I can't be sure without knowing the code better, but it looks to me like the settings screen recognises:

  • banners
  • fanart
  • screenshots
  • plus the things it already recognised

videodlg.cpp seems to recognise fanart and videoartwork. So they look to be out of synch with each other.

Anyway, I patched what I could, and leave the rest for someone who knows the code better.

PS: Thanks heaps for the fanart patches - I'm excited by what they might mean for themes, and it is great to see this area being worked on so actively.

I haven't looked at this patch, but I've fixed this error (has to do with me implementing it one way, then going back and changing the settings values-- works for me sine I have both values, but nobody else would-- d'oh!)

For everyone's reference, the fanart download stuff is temporary until the new metadata handling code gets in... to get fanart and poster download on *existing* items, you'll need to reset the item's metadata and rm the poster file. Then when you re-download the metadata you should get the metadata, poster, and fanart.
