Is it possible to sort the movies in the playlist by top250 position on IMDB?

I cant find any reference to TOP250 in my jukebox

Does mq5 place that info anywhere?

im using the Universal movie scraper

From memory you can sort by rating, but not IMDB Top 250.

Could be wrong though.

Hi here is my playlist code to get the IMBD TOP 250 working.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
    <name>IMBD TOP250</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="top250" operator="greaterthan">
        <value>0</value>
    </rule>
    <group>none</group>
    <limit>250</limit>
    <order direction="ascending">top250</order>
</smartplaylist>

Use the Universal Movie Scraper. There is an option to download IMDB Top 250 ratings. Then make a playlist sorting by "IMDB Top 250 is greater than" (there is a pre-built function in the playlist editor). Make the value greater than 0. Simple with the right scraper.

It's also possible to make an Oscar's Best Picture playlist by adding the ending "oscars" to each best picture file name. Make a playlist that finds titles ending with ".oscars". Then sort the playlist by year.
