I'm Italian and new to xbmc.
I've just discovered this scraper and it seems a very good job. Thanks and conratulations.
But...every good story has a "but": in my installation it appears not to be able to find fanarts. Looking at the log file there seems to be a problem with imbd:
I was searching for infos of "Angeli e demoni" (Angel & Demons) in this example, but the behaviour is the same with other titles.
Is this a problem in my configuration?
I've tried installing the last svn of xbmc and all goes well but the fanart retrival.

Kotix remember to change GetTMDBFanartByIMDBId function name to GetTMDBFanartById

I'm sorry about this but something changed with Camelot beta in the "common" xbmc folder.
BTW I uploaded the fixed version on first post.

I was forced by my hosting service to remove the script from my server.
After it was merged in the svn the high number of queries caused slowdowns to other websites hosted on my same server.

This means we've to set google again for searching.
Is there a new solution on study?
- KoTiX - 2009-12-10 20:24
Not really, i don't have a server where to host the script.
I've tried, using wireshark, to examin the http traffic to see if i could find a trick to bypass the base64 encode query, but with no succes.
The best solution would be that xbmc do the base64 encode for us while creating the search url but I don't know if this is doable or not.

Are there some problems?
I can't get any information about film like "Transformer" or "Steamboy" or "Trainspotting": I have tried also with "cerca con google" but the result is completely wrong.
The strange thing is that I remember that the scrapers was working well with this film but now...
Some update: with Transformer i resolve changing the name into "Transformers (2007)"
no result with Steamboy (tried to change into "Steamboy (2004)") and with Trainspotting (tried to change name into "Trainspotting (1996)")

All the movies you have posted are working fine here, even without adding the year after the name.
The only search that work right now is using google, I'm going to completely remove the MP search as i don't own a server for it and i've no idea how to solne the base64 encoding problem.
My suggestion for you is to be sure to use the right scraper because if you have updated xbmc the xml file could have changed the name from
so be sure you have just one file in your xbmc\system\scraper\video folder
- nanny07 - 2010-01-02 12:38
The xml file is ok, I have checked (I tried also to re-download it before post)
Have you try to delete the film from the library and then search it again? Because the search was perfect before MP change the search engine.
- KoTiX - 2010-01-02 18:10
I know that the search was perfect, but we cannot use it anymore, it's not due to an MP change but to the too high traffic xbmc was causing to the "Cimi's" server that we were using to do the base64 encoding.
Here is a new version of the scraper with just the google search:
