I know but then the argument and some other info would be in english. The ideal thing would be the trailer in the original language and subtitles. But such thign does not exist as far as I know.

Very nice nice work with the updates. I didn't test the whole list of scrappers but compared with those I've tested this is the best, no doubt.
Just a couple of questions if you have time to answer:
- Differences of full cast / partial cast options (from IMDB).
Are the same as they show in the web? (Cast overview VS Full cast and crew)
- Would be possible extend the results of a film search to more than 20 results?
i.e. if I want to add "Batman" (1989) I must to find a way for typing the search string (as "Batman Tim Burton") because it shows only the first 20 results and no one is the film itself.

There is a workarround for this, use NFO files to tell XBMC exactly what film is.
Take a look in the wiki to see how the nfo files works.

It seems that there is problem with latest version. When trying to get info from the film "John Q." it doesn't find the right result.

@fidobot, let me see the log and then I'll try to figure out what's happening.
@janderclander: The worst thing about filmaffinity is the search engine. I don't know how is done but it works in a strange way. For example, to search batman of tim burton you have to search for tim burton. If not, it doesn't found it. The only way of changing it is to change the way the scraper searches for the movie.

Yout can test it by yourself. Just rename any file into "John Q.avi" and use XBMC to look for the info, also you can get the right result here: http://www.filmaffinity.com/es/film181581.html

This is not a scraper mistake. If you search for John Q in the filmaffinity webpage it isn't into the 20 first entries. That's not my mistake if filmaffinity search is so bad. I can test if searching the movies in google instead of filmaffinity can do better but nothing else more.

You are right, the fault is in the filmaffinity search system.
- MaDDoGo - 2011-02-14 04:13
If you figure out one system to bypass this crappy search engine I'll try to implement it

You could try to use Google search as alternative method, using:
site:http://www.filmaffinity.com/es [film title here]
as search string in Google. This way the results are more accurate. Also, i should be nice if you add this, as an option, into the addon settings (use filmaffinity search engine / use google search engine).
Hope this helps. Keep up the good work...
