Well I have the RottenTomatoes integration working. However i want to make a few more adjustments before i release it. RottenTomatoes limits their queries to 10,000 per day which actually will get used up by less than four users of MoviePoster with a 30 second poster interval if its left running 24/7. So I'm going to add the ability to store the RT ratings in the cache and only refresh them once per day or something. Im also still trying to figure out where to display the RottenTomatoes info. Admittedly, it isn't a problem when displaying upcoming movies, since they don't have media flags (resolution, audio format, etc) to display, so i could just use that area. But for the 'now playing' screens it would be a problem, I'm kind of out of room unless i decrease the size of the other metadata. Ive also thought about an optionally viewable panel to show the movie synopsis, RT rating, release date, stuff like that. For now its just overlayed on the poster for testing.. but to show its there and working:
Next, I plan to look into showing game covers or artwork for games launched through a plugin like advanced launcher as suggested by D-MaxPWR. It could be pretty easy, and its the next feature that i might actually use myself. MediaBrowser support will be on the list somewhere after that. And unfortunately, crossplatform support is gradually being pushed down my list, simply for the fact that it will take considerable time to pretty much rewrite everything, and it doesn't really have any benefit to me. However, I do want to become more proficient in python, so I will explore porting the business logic and base classes to python. I'm still undecided about what framework to use for a cross platform GUI, but I'm leaning towards Qt.
