CouchPotato Greasemonkey Addon (display movie posters and movie info)

Post by JayBird »

Now superseded by the latest CouchPotato update


Before i start, just want to say thanks to RuudBurger for his great CouchPotato application, it is really great work. See it here - http://forums.sabnzbd.org/index.php?topic=4636.0

I wanted the movie list to display movie posters as it isn't just me that adds movies to the list, and having a poster allow me to quickly recognize what is new. Girlfriend adds a lot of chick-flicks

I decided to quickly write a Greasemonkey script to do what I wanted. This is my first Greasmonkey script, hope you like it.

So, technically, this is a third party addon, for a third party addon :)

Download the script here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1271638/couchpotato.user.js

And this is what it looks like...hope you like it, and if you have any feature request/ideas, i will see what i can do

It is currently using themoviedb.org. They have an API for grabbing movie data, whereas IMDB has no official way of getting the data, which means you need to screen scrape. That can take quite a while if you have a huge list. What I may look at doing is making it fall back to IMDB for movies not on themoviedb.org. Quite tricky though

Getting everything here, so the rating is from themoviedb then?

Can you add it to the coming soon page too?

I think RuudBurger has plans to add posters to the coming soon page natively, so i will see what he does first before i spend time doing that

Great script!

Any chance you could change it so it works in both greasemonkey and chrome (maybe look at the imdb-script from couchpotato which works in both).
