Arrow Utility: mediaScraper - metadata made easy!

Release History:
What it is:
mediaScrapper is my answer XBMC's excellent, but very confusing, scraping engine and you can use it to track down all the metadata and fanart for any TV/Movies you may have ripped/bought/downloaded/whatever.

Usage Instructions: See 2nd post

How to use metadata files:

* To make SageMC use the .my files, go into SageMC Properties -> Enhancments -> Use .my Files -> Enabled.
* To make the default STV use .properties files, read this thread.

Submitting Issues:

If you have any issue I'll need to see the EXACT PATH/FILE name that is giving you trouble and/or (preferably) the scraper.log file that gets generated next to the .exe after every run.

Example Outputs:

.properties file for default STV:
Title=Wonderfalls 1x05 - Crime Dog
Actor=Caroline Dhavernas;Tracie Thoms;Tyron Leitso;Diana Scarwid;Lee Pace;Katie Finneran;William Sadler;

He has spent the previous decade working for the government in Eastern Europe and returns to his hometown of Miami to get his life in order. Michael will stop at nothing to find out why. Shut out from his normal contacts, but still driven to right wrongs, Michael needs to stay under the radar in order to stay in the game.
actors=Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell, Paul Gutrecht, Guri Weinberg, Audrey Landers, Scott Michael Campbell, Joel Swetow, Hannia Guillen, Jessica Baldwin, Rangel Hernandez Martinez,
TVEpisode=Family Business
TVOverview=Michael infiltrates a family of gunrunners who are pressuring an airport supervisor and his pregnant wife. The FBI begin to put pressure on Sam to gather more information on Michael.
