Great, I will try it this evening...

The 'der die das' problem is not a great problem, I Know it and I delete it manualy.

What's about the *.nfo file?

Background:
We have 4 xboxes in our Family-Net with a NAS for movie storing.
If I have a movie with matching problems I could create a *.nfo file in the movie folder for the other user (my parents for example).

Thanks, StompSC

In your case you could just export the entire database to an xmlfile... copy that file onto the server and import it there... so you entire moviedatabase would be exactly the same on each xbox...

But i think there will be some additional functionality for your problem to make it more comfortable.

The mirroring of the database is a option, but if I must do that manualy, that's no alternative.

I've testet the scraper with 70 movies out of 2006 and 2007 and it works fine!
Only 3 movies have no plot, but this ones have no plot on ofdb. Wink

some things:
The '-' is annoying, perhaps you could change the scraper to ignore the '-'
The "der, die, das" is sometimes a problem of the ofdb search engine, but I can't detect a regularity.
In many plots are some rectangle, perhaps some special characters? Often at the end of a sentence (format characters?). sometimes within a sentence.
Examples:
"Arthur und die Minimoys" - a long'-' is shown as a square
"
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Mit Hilfe...
"
The <br /> are shown as squares.

But this is only a cosmetic problem, I'm happy that the german scraper works so fine!
Thank You morte0815 and spiff for that great work.

Now, I must go to my family cause today's my birtday... Big Grin
But the scraper was on position one Big Grin

Bye, StompSC

Hi morte,

yesterday i tried the scraper from SVN (so not the latest version in this thread).
I noticed that the german umlauts (ä,ö,ü) are not displaying correctly!?

Has this been fixed in your latest .xml in this thread or is this still an XBMC issue?

Did you use the latest xbmc version (from the svn) or just the scraper from the svn?

Now i updated to the latest SVN and it works like a charm! Big Grin Thanks morte for this great scraper.

Although, i have a feature suggestion, but i don't know if this is possible:
spiff:
Would it be possible with the ofdb-scraper to download everything from ofdb, like it is now, but with a few additions from IMDB?
That is, because the ofdb database misses some information which the IMDB database has.
So in ofdb, we have almost every data filled, but except a few which are "not available". So these few could then be fetched from IMDB (as they also are only names and don't need to be translated..).

Don't know if this is possible?

Hi,

IN the SVN are some changes for *.nfo File parsing:

DonJ_ added: Scraper support for nfo files
morte0815 changed: added regexp for nfo-parsing
...

Where could I get some infos about using the new features?
Does the nfo File only countain a url as yet, or could I make different entrys for different parser.

Or better: Is it possible to make a choice which parser is to use by a setting in the nfo file?

It is possible to make the following ad on to the scraper sources?
A xml file in the movie folder, perhaps a "moviename.xml" with the detail infos, like:

<details>
<title>...</title>
<originaltitle>...</originaltitle>
<year>...</year>
<director>...</director>
<outline>...</outline>
<plot>...</plot>
<thumb>...</thumb>

and so on...

So, if this file exist, this file is used instead of a online request...

StompSC
