Feature Request - Choose Cover Art

Postby tameanaka » Wed Jan 28, 2015 8:23 am

It would be great if the ability to choose cover art from moviedb and the like all within MetaX. Sometimes the cover grabbed by MetaX is not always the one I'd like, and then I have to go to moviedb and copy the img i want and paste it into MetaX. Maybe this is already a feature and I'm missing something?

First, sorry for the delayed response, I didn't see this posting.

As far as getting the cover art from tmdb, it should just work. are you getting the other data from tmdb, just not the cover? if so, can you give me a movie name to check?

It is getting the cover art fine. However it is only grabbing the "top" cover, which sometimes isn't the desired one. Does that make sense? It would be great to be able to choose the cover from all that tmdb has to offer for a particular title. This would be in replacement to going onto the website, finding the movie, going to covers, and copy/paste in MetaX.

Something similar to the way Kodi / XBMC does it where you can choose the art from whatever is available on tmdb.
