#9731 closed Bug Report - General (Fixed)

meta data grabber doesn't decode aliased ampersand character

Reported by: ryan.goat@… Owned by: robertm
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: Plugin - MythVideo Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The meta data grabber for thetvdb successfully found the data for a mythVideo file named "Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt s01e01.mkv" The description on thetvdb includes an ampersand (&) character. When I view the description through mythFrontend I instead see: & That of coarse being the HTML alias for the ampersand character.

Somewhere along the way the grabber process or mythFrontend needs to convert the alias into the real character.

Unescape HTML Encoding when parsing text portions of metadata.

Slight speed hit when parsing, but it needs to get done. Refs #9731.
