i would like to know how can i access to the imdb information with phyton like the xbmc does.
i have a movies database writed in phyton and i want to link each movie to the imdb information.
it´s possible to call a xbmc function or something to access imdb (in the same way that i can play movies from phytom)?
thanks for your help.

i think you can only get the imdb info from the currently playing movie:

and it´s not possible to pass a parameter to that function with the name of the movie?
thanks in advance!

try to create your own function :
1- request imdb website with video name
2- parse the return webpage and get the info you want

but i think that it's better and easier :hmm: to use the xbmc.player().getvideoinfotag() function already created or something like that.
i don't want to create my own imdb function....

it's me again.
does anyone knows if there is a way to get the imdb info of a movie form phyton.
note: i just want to use the buit-in imdb function of xbmc. without re-writing the imdb function form cero.

I think there will be a lib on xbmcscripts soon to make requests to IMDb. Last I talked to the dev it was near completion but he was busy with RL.
