Apple Trailer Downloader .2.2

New version of the Apple Trailer Downloader is now available.

This only includes a fix for one bug.

This bug was a failure to handle some Unicode strings and caused ATD to fail when encountering something like the ® character.  A recent trailer that caused ATD to fail was for “The Wolfman”.

Apple Trailer Downloader .2

Version .2 of my Apple Trailer Downloader is out.  Major changes:

  • Code organization to allow easier updates (this is an on-going effort since when I started this project it kind of grew organically rather than having some sort of plan.)
  • Added the --htenfo option.  This creates a .nfo file for each trailer for use with the Home Theater Experience XBMC script.
  • Added the --imdb option.  This fetches movie information from the IMDB.  Currently, it only uses this information to get MPAA ratings for trailers that Apple doesn’t specify a MPAA rating for.  Many upcoming movies still don’t have MPAA ratings so this won’t help in those instances.
