Re: Turbo-Charge your browser for fanart.tv

If you don't want to use the unstable builds, you can also use the tampermonkey plugin.

Re: XBMC scraper and artist optimization

There doesn't seem to be any resolution in that forum thread. I just tested the Universal Scrapers with a new artist that I never had in my XBMC library before. The scrapers used the MBID to lookup the information and artwork, so evidently at least the newest version of the Universal Scrapers use th...

Re: XBMC scraper and artist optimization

I use the Universal Scrapers, just updated to Gotham. I did a test to see if the MBID was used instead of an artist name search (I sniffed the network traffic to see which type of search was performed) but now that I think about it, the MBID may have been cached by XBMC (I deleted some music, cleane...

Re: Movies duplicated

TMDb doesn't allow different cuts of the same movie, that's why the directors cut was deleted. (Did you see that Martijn reported it :)). The year shown (1972) isn't the version but the year it was initially released. Even if TMDb allowed the directors cut it wouldn't fix the issue as there's no way...

Re: Any chance of changing the 1 MB upload limit to 1.5?

Use a combination of posterizing and a png optimizer. The cdArt template has posterize adjustment layers, decreasing the number of colors will help reduce file size.
There are many png optimizers that work better than smush.it, on Windows I prefer ScriptPNG.

Re: XBMC scraper and artist optimization

The content shown in parenthesis after an artist name (in a fanart.tv search) is what musicbrainz refers to as the disambiguation comment. A disambiguation comment is used to help distinguish identically named artists. It's not part of the artist name, just a separate field that lets the user differ...

Re: Want to display Indian TV shows

fanart.tv deals with the artwork. For TV show data, you have two options with open APIs: http://thetvdb.com/ & http://www.themoviedb.org/. thetvdb is where the data for the artwork on fanart.tv comes from. It has a limited API (http://thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php?title=Programmers_API) but a very larg...

Re: Any desire for a fanart.tv user script?

At any page on fanart.tv (not the forum subdomain here) hit F12 to open the developer tools. Use the tab like buttons on the top of the DevTools panel to open the console. In the console type localStorage and hit return. Note that you have to use a capital S, all other letters lowercase.

ppi only matters when you print. http://bjango.com/articles/ppiisatag/

The only way to decrease the file size would be to decrease compression quality.
