    Default Inconsistency in Title searches

    Great product. It's solved my streaming problems and is much better than the other ones I had been battling with. It just works, except...

    When I "Change Artwork -> Get internet artwork", it searches for a suitable cover on the internet, using Title. Any full stops in the title are substituted for spaces/effectively ignored. This is good. I used it a lot until I upgraded to the new version with meta data search.

    When I "Get online video meta data", any full stops in the title are treated as full stops rather than spaces like the artwork search so the title isn't found. This is not so good.

    Hope the treatment of "Title" as the search keyword can be made consistent between both searches - to work like Artwork search, not consistent to work like the meta data search :-)

    Thanks for reporting this. Can you give us an example of a title search that fails to work?

    Sure thing.

    Double click on any movie file. Change Artwork -> Get internet artwork
    Change the title to: Donnie.Darko
    Search and it finds the cover for donnie darko

    cancel

    now click "Get online video meta data". Change the title to: Donnie.Darko
    Search and it fails to find anything.
    Change the title to: Donnie Darko
    Search and success, it finds the meta data and same image as found in image search

    This isn't a one-off. Meta data search never finds any titles that image search would find if they have fullstops instead of spaces.

    This is a issue for me because most of my movie files are named with fullstops not spaces.

    That's on version 2.6.2 which I upgraded to before posting this. Had the same problem on 2.6.0.
