In the last 2 weeks I decided to copy my entire dvd and bluray collection to my xbmc system.
This scrapper works fine for 99 % for all content.
I had 2 movies that were never correct.
Prior to start scanning for new content I renamed the show to the same
name like in the german imdb.
Following two movie names produce errors.
- Hitman or Hitman - Jeder stirbt alleine
- Wantet (2008)
I guess this error do occur because imdb returns multiple movie names ....
Every movie with exception of the above 2 are inside the database.

Nice scraper, i had to modify three things for myself, though.
1. The rating didn't work properly, only the first digit was shown.

3. The "original title" was something like
"<Title>" - USA
instead of just
If anyone is interested in my quick&dirty changes, feel free to replace your XBMC\addons\metadata.imdb.de\imdb_de.xml using these code snippets:

Krauti Wrote:Hi segroove,
If Eisenbahn does not want this: just send me a message and i will remove it.
But since i did not remove anything like credits etc. it should be fine.
It seems that Eisenbahn does not work anymore on this and i might clone his git repository and drive this on. But i really would like to see better regex support in xbmc first.
PS: I DID NOT TEST THE MODIFICATIONS i will have time to test them this weekend.
I just uploaded it:

Would it not be better to have a repo for the installation ?
If you like you can use Luxeria repository for your addon to distribute ...
