For example (this is the search script which trying to find the movie...):
http://www.theghost16.nl/MovieMeter/index.php?movie=green+street+hooligans+(2005)

It will find:
-. Green Street Hooligans 2(2009)
-. Hooligans(2005)

So far ok. But now heres is the problem I've already given a year to search but it doesn't uses it.. Else it should find only Hooligans (2005) and for some other movies I have had some other problems.. But anyway..

I have made my own search php script so the title and year will be searched so you get an much better match with youre searched title you have given. Also I search for the year so you only get a list with the given year Smile

My script will find:
-. Hooligans(2005)


To use this fix you have to change a line in the moviemeter.xml.

Change this (in moviemeter.xml):
http://www.theghost16.nl/MovieMeter/index.php?movie=

Into his:
http://www.partyravers.eu/scraper/moviemeter/?search=

Save it and try it!


For example purpose:
Wrong: http://www.theghost16.nl/MovieMeter/index.php?movie=green+street+hooligans+(2005)
Good: http://www.partyravers.eu/scraper/moviemeter/?search=green+street+hooligans+(2005)

Wrong: http://www.theghost16.nl/MovieMeter/index.php?movie=green+street+hooligans
Good: http://www.partyravers.eu/scraper/moviemeter/?search=green+street+hooligans

Wrong: http://www.theghost16.nl/MovieMeter/index.php?movie=ip+man+2
Good: http://www.partyravers.eu/scraper/moviemeter/?search=ip+man+2

**UPDATE**
For The_Ghost16 you can use my code if you wish to make youre search better then is it alreay is.

The code is:

Ghost16 is hitting 5000 requests a day, so scraping get's difficult.

Can you share your movie.php? I have my own Moviemeter API key....

nvm, I read the wiki and my own movie.php (combined it with your search function), everything works great now Smile

I'm trying to get this to work with Ember. I download the XML scraper addon, put all the files where they should be, I can find all the scrapers in the Ember program but they don't seem to fetch any info. Only imdb.com works.

EMM doesn't compatible with scraper addons. Only with scrapers from 9.11 Camelot.

Since two days my scraper comes back with nothing but unable to connect with remote server. Anyone experiencing this problem?

- bvhaute - 2010-11-24 00:24

Yes indeed, there is a error on the transformation website of theghost16.


- The_Ghost16 - 2010-11-24 12:49

Okay it should be working now.

I dropped a table instead of truncated it.


- bvhaute - 2010-11-25 00:10

yep, it's working again, thanks alot mate!!!

I have noticed something odd: I have the movie "Sorcerer's Apprentice, The (2010)" and when I use the moviescraper in XBMC I get completely different information about the film than the information shown on the website of moviemeter itself. Any idea what the reason might be?


- The_Ghost16 - 2010-11-26 10:47

The reason that the information is different has a combined issue.

Because of the limitations of the moviemeter api I store the movie information in my own database. So when you start scraping the movies it will first look in the database and if it can't find it there it will start looking at moviemeter.

So when moviemeter updates its information you see the old information. I had to do this else the limitations of the api will be very annoying.


- Amelandbor - 2010-12-30 12:34

Maybe an idea to include another option to the addon:

-Get one studio as result

The studio icons weren't showing in the skin I use and that was because imdb was returning all studios.


- Wouser - 2011-01-02 14:17

Since a week or so i get errors while scraping. It will find the movie i need, but doesn't scrape the information.

It returns with "no information found".

Anyone experiencing the same problem?

I have try'd XBMC Live 10.00: beta4, RC2 and the stable. With all the moviemeter scraper does not show anything. I can browse my list But it's all empty no movie titles, no information, no cover art etc. So your not the only one.
