cover art lookup - use a different term

When you select 'Open Google Images', I'd like to be able to select the term that gets added after the movie title. For example, instead of 'cover', I'd want 'blu ray'...

I have gone ahead and added a secret preference in the latest beta to allow that. Download the beta version and then with the program called Terminal in /Application/Utilities/Terminal run the following command and restart DVDpedia if running:

Code: Select all
defaults write com.bruji.dvdpedia GoogleImagesExtra "+Blu-ray"

If you adapt the last word for your own preferences start with a + sign and all other spaces should also be + signs.

To remove and go back to using "cover" do the following command:

Code: Select all
defaults delete com.bruji.dvdpedia GoogleImagesExtra


UPDATE: I actually liked this so much that I will add it to the next version (5.0.2) for the program automatically, so you won't have to go through the Terminal for special settings. (The Google Images search will add the media to DVDpedia searches and platform to Gamepedia searches.)

Thanks for that Conor - I have always found changing the word "cover" to "DVD" gave better results so have used Terminal to make it permanent.
