Trailerfetcher 0.3 Alpha
Trailerfetcher is video conversion application.
As an owner of a small home-cinema system I got an idea: Wouldn't it be neat if before every film you play, mythtv would automatically show you a few trailers of other cool films too come (or already there)?
Trailers would also allow you to "ease into" actually watching the film and cover the whole "lets get the popcorn"-phase, etc.
But I already knew what a hassle it is to download _one_ trailer from sites like yahoo or apple.com. So I decided to make it easy:
This application provides an easy to use interface for downloading trailers. It fetches a list from a trailerpage (currently only yahoo.com) and lists all avalible trailers.
It then summarize the found trailers and displays info about the title, the genre and a short describtion of the plot. All this is fetched and extracted automatically.
You can than mark the trailers you want to download and simply press "Download" to save them to your harddrive.
Ok this was the marketing talk. I wrote this software because I needed it (probably the reason for most open-source-projects), but it is far from feature-complete. It is usable though (it loaded all 73 currently avalible trailers from yahoo.com last night).
AFAIK it is perfectly legal to download these trailers. If anyone thinks it isn't: please feel free to delete the project.
Usage notes: Set the settings before retrieving the list! Some settings (e.g. the resolution) will not take effect if you don't.
