In the last version of XBMC, scrapers are addons. You have to go to Addons and TV Scrapers, and then download the Filmaffinity one. Then you'll have the addon in %appdata%/XBMC/addons.

Hi, I don't know if this happens to everyone or if it is just me. The scrapers does not show the actors list in order. When I go to the IMDB page, the cast is in order, but the XBMC shows it in a different order. It's quite annoying because you never know who's starring the movie.
Oh and another thing, it will be nice if the trailers could be scraped from hdtrailers, I prefer to ve trailers in english instead of none at all.
If only someone could give me a tip on how to modify the script myself I would be grateful.
Thanks to everyone in advance!

I have found a problem with this scraper.
I am new to this forums and i am not really sure how to report this, so for the moment i will put all the information here.
I use NFO files to tell XBMC where it have to go to scrap a movie, but there is an error in the scraper in this line:
I have fix the line and test it, and now is fine for me, my NFO files with URL work
By the way, a coment to this

Is there any way to increase the number of items retrieved?I have the same problem with a few movies, and the solution i found is tell the scraper the exact URL for the movie in a NFO file. But in order to make it work you will need to fix the scraper as i do.
The scraper location in your hard drive is %appdata%/XBMC/addons if you want to fix it manually.

I'm new too. I fixed the scrapper and I don't know how to do it. What you mean with "the exact url"? I have tried with the url and with the numbers, and I can't do it. how can i do with a NFO file?
My problem is with the movie "Brother" by Takeshi Kitano

sorry for the away time, but I don't forget all of you.
First of all, @rooberman please pm me in spanish to know what are your problem, because I don't understand it
Then, I'm going to edit the scraper to allow HDTrailers.net
PD: I'm looking at this (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=89387&highlight=hd-trailers), and I'll post again when something clear happens
PD2: I'm doing a reestructuration of the scraper including the addition of HD-Trailers (selectable in a list (HD-Trailers or Filmaffinity)) and some minor fixes. Later I'll post a beta version to test it.
PS3: Here is the first beta of the new version. I can't test it because I have to go, but it has to work (in theory). Enjoy:

Thx for looking into this @MaDDoGo, I have send you a pm
@El Lute, take a look in the wiki to see how the nfo files works
- MaDDoGo - 2011-01-13 12:16
All done rooberman as I said in the PM. Now I have done the updating in the scraper and I write a script to update the database into the new trailer format
Here is the files:
Filmaffinity 1.3 Beta (Polishing details): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2MEWX9ZS
PS: For the developers: Is it possible to call a scraper as a plugin with plugin://scraper.../?action=...? Because I want to save fanart's urls as plugins, then when fanarts gets added you don't have to re-scrape again...

Hello, I've tested the beta version, but I'm not getting any trailers. I don't really know what to do with the script you gave.. Anyway, another thing, but I think it's not the scraper's fault: The cast is shows in a different order in XBMC than the original page it was scraped from (imdb or filmaffinity), I've googled it and it seems that XBMC sorts the actors by an id number. I just wanted to ask if anyone has this problem or if anyone knows how to fix it. For example look at the movie "Back to the future", Michael J. Fox should be at the top, instead Lloyd appears (or if you have the scraper to search in imdb, Casey Siemaszco appears first to me).
So I'm asking PLEASE if anyone could help me with this, I'd be really grateful. Great jo and thanks to all in advance!

About scraping order I have no idea why it disorders. About beta scraper wait until the update is aproved by XBMC and then try again.
