Hi all,

i wanted a local scrapper for scrapping all 200 videos on my local harddrive. I wanted the videos to be scrapped only based on the original title not anything else.... (which should do a search based on the term given and populate it to title and original title fields.)

please find below the script i've tried... but its not working and donno how to make it work... as i'm trying it out for the first time...

anyhelp in this case will be of great help...

<scraper name="localdb" content="movies" thumb="imdb.gif" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

<include>metadata.common.localdb.com/localdb.xml</include>

<CreateSearchUrl dest="3">
<RegExp input="$$1" output="\1" dest="3">
<expression noclean="1"></expression>
</CreateSearchUrl>

<GetSearchResults dest="8">
<RegExp input="$$1" output="<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" standalone="yes"?><results><entity><title>\1</title></entity></results>" dest="8">
<expression noclean="1"></expression>
<expression />
</RegExp>
</GetSearchResults>

<GetDetails dest="3">
<RegExp input="$$1" output="<details><title>\1</title><originaltitle>\1</originaltitle><plot>Some dummies doing dumb things</plot></details>" dest="3">
<expression></expression>
</RegExp>
</GetDetails>

</scraper>
