IMDB - new layout - dukevn - 2010-09-03 03:50
I just checked IMDB for one movie, and recognized that the layout has been changed a little bit. Then using IMDB scrapper to get information for some new added movies, I can see that some information could not be gotten (ie Title etc...). I believe IMDB needs some updates in order to work properly with the new layout.

Suggesting some movies that have this feature (and even better, some filenames or URL links to those movies) might be helpful, in case there is someone out there willing to work on the scraper.
This is why we recommend themoviedb - it doesn't change arbitrarily like this.

But anyway, I did not put any link or movie's name since it happens to every movies . The layout change and from I can see, the scrapper can not get Title and Genre anymore.

Can confirm this is the same for me. No movie titles when using IMDB scraper, for any movies.
themoviedb does seem to be quicker though, so maybe i'll switch back to using that. I never liked IMDB's spoilerific plots anyway

What movies does this happen with? Just did a scan with some movies that came out in 2010 and everything was fine. Using Dharma Beta 1 with the IMDB scraper.

I'm also having this problem -- every newly scanned movie on Dharma with the imdb scraper is missing information, most notably the title.
debug log here: http://gleam.pastebin.com/Q3DSr8BW
I've had to switch to tmdb in the meantime, which is less complete

What are you guys using? windows? mac? linux? I am on XBMC live and I am experiencing no problems what so ever with the IMDb scraper.

Am having this problem as well, running Dharma Beta 1 on Windows. Studio, Year, Runtime, Plot plus Thumb and Fanart are there but no Title and other info.
Here is my debug log if it helps
