Special Note
Due to changes on the sites that MoviePoster uses to collect data, all versions and below are no longer able to reliably download poster data. These versions are now considered legacy and will no longer be supported. You can still download them if you wish from the Archive Page.

An up to date guide is available on Google Drive at the following link. Please check here first if you are having any difficulty. MoviePoster Definitive Guide on Google Drive.


Dev Builds
Dev Builds include the newest features and bug fixes, but have had more limited testing. These are usually pretty stable and are the versions I run myself. However, some features may be incomplete or undocumented and a few bugs might sneak through. These are best for people who want to be on the bleeding edge and don't mind reporting issues.
Note: Dev builds do not include an installer. Simply Extract the archive and run MoviePoster.exe


This is the current recomended version for best compatibility. The core program is the same as the original release.
The Repack aims to make the initial setup process easier. The base program is unchanged from the initial release. But includes an updated Kodi plugin, updated yt-dlp, bundles with the prerequisite MS C++ installer, and a handful of scripts to make setup easier. This repack comes as a self extracting 7zip archive. Please see the README file after extracting.
