    Version 1.0.13 of the Mezzmo Artwork Checker has been uploaded to GitHub.
    This version has a major fix for IMDB images fetching due to an API change.


    New Features / Fixes in v1.0.13:


    Fixed issue fetching IMDB images due to an IMDB API change implemented on
    1/1/2023


    I've been using this utility for a number of months now and have fetched over
    14,000 additional images from TMDB / IMDB for actors and actresses.


    Feedback is welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    It was brought to my attention that I hadn't created a Wiki page for the
    Mezzmo artwork checker tool. I've now completed the initial Wiki for this
    valuable tool which can help you easily manage your actor / actress artwork
    even for very large libraries. My current library has over 88,000+ actor /
    actresses in it with 70,000+ associated images.

    The new Wiki page has information on configuring the tool, running the tool,
    how it works and information on the CSV outputs which provides valuable
    data on actor / actresses, what movies / TV episodes they star in, which have
    artwork, which don't, what type of artwork and a nice set of statistics
    to help you manage your artwork.

    I'll continue to update the new Wiki site over the next week. Feedback is welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about this conversation. In the next few weeks I will begin investigation on what it would take to move the Mezzmo Artwork Checker and the Mezzmo Trailer Checker to a compiled binary format which would run natively under Windows.

    No commitments yet but I will begin the research.

    I am trying to implement artwork script. Everytime i run the script to retrieve 10 images, keep receiving error "The IMDB server appears to be busy or down." Does this happen time to time or do i have something mis-configured?

    Can you send me a private message with a copy of your config file ?

    It looks like the issue was a bug with the config parsing for IMDB_KEY where you took out "Your-IMDB-API-Key" and just left it blank. I have published a 1.0.14 test release which fixes this. It will now accept the default value of ""Your-IMDB-API-Key", None or blanks. Please try this and let me know if it works better.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Version 1.0.15 of the Mezzmo Artwork Checker has been uploaded to GitHub.
    This version has 3 minor fixes for the statistics output.


    New Features / Fixes in v1.0.15:

    Fixed a bug which would cause a divide by zero error when parsing the statistics
    and no IMDB fetch attempts occurred
    Fixed a statistics display bug where the TMDB fetched image counter would increment
    when it was skipped due to already being fetched by IMDB
    Added a daily new image counter to the display statistics so you can see new images
    added during the current day

    I've been using this utility for a couple of years now and have fetched over
    16,500 additional images from TMDB / IMDB for actors and actresses.

    It is a very easy way to add new artwork to your library without the need to
    rescrape your underling movies and TV episodes. You can even set it up as
    a batch file to run daily.


    Feedback is welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    I've come back to this after a break, updated Python and the Artwork Checker, and now it's acting strange. I cleaned the database to start afresh and this is the output:

    Mezzmo actor comparison completed successfully.

    ************ Mezzmo Artwork Checker Stats *************

    Last time checker ran:
    Mezzmo actors found: 0
    Mezzmo actors deleted: 0
    Mezzmo Poster files found: 15050
    Mezzmo Poster files without actor: 15050
    Mezzmo UserPoster files found: 1406
    Mezzmo UserPoster files without actor: 1406
    Mezzmo actor not found on IMDB/TMDB: 0
    Mezzmo actors with Good Image: 0
    Mezzmo actors with Bad Image: 0
    Mezzmo actors with no Image: 0
    Mezzmo actors with no Image found: 0

    For some reason it seems to not find any actors in the database.

    Here is my config.txt

    C:\Users\Marty\AppData\Local\Conceiva\Mezzmo\ # Path to Mezzmo database
    C:\Users\Marty\AppData\Local\Conceiva\Mezzmo\artwo rk\ # Mezzmo artwork folder path with trailing \
    XXXXXX # IMDB API Key (I've hidden this)
    30 # IMDB Query Count - Suggest keeping IMDB and TMDB counts the same
    a6898792995042896256585082db0842 # TMDB API Key - Do not modify this line
    30 # TMDB Query Count - Suggest keeping IMDB and TMDB counts the same
    5 # IMDB retry limit - Maximum value is 10 - Default value is 5

    The paths are correct because it is finding the posters.

    I tried deleting mezzmo_artwork.db but it made no difference, although first time through I saw a line

    no such table actorArtwork

    which didn't appear in subsequent attempts.

    I would appreciate your insights here.
    Cheers,
    Marty Davey.

    Do me a favor and try version 1.0.16, which I just posted. Since you are using an IMDB key, the URL changed for them. This version fixes it.

    Try running it with "mezzmo_actor.py images 5 > logfile.txt" and if it fails to download any images, send me a PM with a copy of the logfile if the logfile doesn't show any counts.

    I am working on this tool to add an NFO creator feature to address the recent TMDB metadata issue. I've realized that I need to add a logging facility like the Mezzmo Trailer Checker. That will be coming very soon.


    Thanks,

    Jeff
