[RELEASE] FilmAffinity (Spanish) scraper - HectorziN - 2007-03-22 17:30

Hello guys.

In last build, is included a new Spanish scraper by Jurrabi. This scraper uses http://www.culturalianet.com
I tried this, and I found this web page hasn’t enough information. I decided then making a new scraper using http://www.filmaffinity.com web page. This scrapper supports all of this:

- Title
- Plot
- Outline (when available for the movie)
- Year
- Director
- Country and original version title (used mpaa tagline for this)
- Credits
- Genre
- Nominations, Oscars, and other prices (used mpaa field for this)
- Rating
- Votes
- Runtime
- Actor name

I think that it could be useful adding it to next releases.
Where can I post the xml file and the gif file?


Best Regards.

HectorziN (From Spain)

I don't know how submit a patch. I have posted here a link to download. Guys, try to test it and evaluate. I think that it is very good. I haven't found a movie that dont' work with this scraper.

The only problem I have found, and I don't know how to solve it, is that don't work when the search string contains ñ, á, é, í, ó and ú. you mast search using n, a, e, i, o and u.

If anybody knows how to fix, please, tell me.

I am waiting your comments.

sounds like encoding issues to me. make sure you properly specify utf vs not in your returned xml's.


- spiff - 2007-03-27 19:03

seems to be working fine. i'll hold off a couple of days to see if you nail that issue, then i'll commit to svn.

cheers

problems with ñ - HectorziN - 2007-03-29 09:03

the problem is that xbmc transforms ñ to ñ
In culturalianet.com, a search to ñ works, but filmaffinity.com needs to receive %F1.

The problem is that is xbmc who send ñ to the parer, then the parser cannot do anything with this.... This is what I think is happening.

Here is the log

INFO: Get URL: http://www.filmaffinity.com/es/search.php?stext=cuando+llama+un+extraño&stype=title

if you paste this url into internet explorer it won't find anything, but if you paste http://www.filmaffinity.com/es/search.php?stext=cuando+llama+un+extra%F1o&stype=title then it will work. How can this be fixed?

Thanks

we need some way for the scraper to say that it wants iso not utf chars. will have a crack at it later.


- HectorziN - 2007-03-29 13:48

OK, thanks, I'll wait for the new scraper functionallity


- HectorziN - 2007-04-03 17:03

Any progressConfused
is there a new definition of scraper languaje to explicit if dthe search using utf or iso?

Thanks a lot.

Also, anyone has test this scrapper? what do you think?


- HectorziN - 2007-08-10 15:46

Hello spiff.

it will be abailable anything to select utf or iso when searching?
if not. I think that we could include the filmaffinity scrapper anyway. what do you thing?

Regards
