updates are better than blind dates

I know you guys are getting tired of the frequent updates and the crashes lately. I’ve put in place some code in build 224 that should prevent changes in the movie db api from causing crashes. I still need to implement similar protection for the tagchimp and tvdb, but those are less pressing at the moment.

There may be one more update in the pips once I confirm it solves the random crashes that occur when you add many files at once. I’ve been searching for a solution to this one for weeks, and don’t want to wait once I confirm its fixed.

Oh, and a Japanese Mac magazine, “Mac People” wants to include iDentify in a future issue and on the accompanying DVD. Looks like I may have to look into internationalization support.

Movie lookup crashes

The TMDB recently made a few changes to their api, and I need to update. I’m working on it guys. They said they were going to update, but didn’t provide any details to prepare. If the change is what I think it is, it shouldn’t take long to fix.
