HTBackdrop API
« on: November 05, 2012, 05:57:33 PM »
Barry,

Glad to see the Forum back up!! Looks like you upgraded it... Since you have been looking at other API's for functionality, I found that HTBackdrops http://www.htbackdrops.com/v2/index.php?file=scraper_api/intro has an API that can be used so E-Touch could look up images at their site for thumbnail, intermediate or Full Size images. This might be a great addition....

This is a great way for obtaining missing fan art i will look into it, should be quite straight forward to use... I think I will build a test app first and then look at intergrating it into the main app.

Barry,

Have you tried using this API yet?

No, I have not looked at audio DB either yet. My Priority has been bug fixing really and tidying up the code behind the scenes. I don't have much spare time right now either which doesn't help.

Oh well that site is dead.... This is the trouble with spending time adding support for a site, if that site goes down you have lost some functionality like when MP3 Skull changed something so we couldn't stream their audio. Hopefully Audio DB will be around for a long while yet.
