[RELEASE] FilmAffinity (Spanish) scraper - HectorziN - 2007-03-22 17:30
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:
- Outline (when available for the movie)
- Country and original version title (used mpaa tagline for this)
- Nominations, Oscars, and other prices (used mpaa field for this)
- 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?

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.
problems with ñ - HectorziN - 2007-03-29 09:03
the problem is that xbmc transforms ñ to Ã±
In culturalianet.com, a search to Ã± works, but filmaffinity.com needs to receive %F1.
The problem is that is xbmc who send Ã± 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+extraÃ±o&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?

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
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
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?
- spiff - 2007-08-10 16:00
oh my. this was an old one biting me
had forgotten all about this. i suggest we stick it in svn as is, then i'll look into a fix when i have the time
- HectorziN - 2007-08-10 16:36

- spiff - 2007-08-10 16:48
