Video Previews non scraping method



  • Hi guys, got a query. I don't have much joy with the scrapers. They either miss half a dozen from each system or I don't like the quality of the scraped images. I don't want to discredit the work of these scrapers, or slate them in any way. I think they are a fantastic piece of kit, however they are just not for me. I want to go down the manual route of adding my own video previews and making my own artwork (I only have about 30 games for each system, for ease of use). My questions is do I have to edit every gamelist myself manually? Or is there a tool or a simple way that scrapes the text only and if it finds a matching video preview or boxart it will populate the gamelist by itself?
