Thumbs Up  [RELEASE] Movie2k.com (Video) Plugin
Post: #1
In the quest for more content I stumbled upon movie2k.com and just couldn't pass up on creating a plugin to scrape it's contents.

It is a monster and has a whole lot of content.

This release only includes only the movies section of the site complete with foreign movies and adult content.

Currently the plugin supports Veoh via VeohProxy (included in the .rar place this your scripts folder if you don't already have it), StageVu, Google, and Youku there are other providers but I haven't managed them yet.

Hopefully, with some help they'll be added.

Future releases will hopefully include:

Missing Content Provider Support
TV Show Content
And of course the ability to download.
Hint to download for now use the switch media trick I've had success with it.

You'll find the plugin file
here -> http://code.google.com/p/f8lcoder-xbmc-s...loads/list

Or by following the link in my signature...

Enjoy

And once again thanks to you Voinage for the guidance..

Cheers...

Nice script, well done f8lcoder. One request/suggestion, could you add a category for updated movies.. http://www.movie2k.com/movies-updates.html

And is there a possibility to add scrapping abilities to get info from imdb for example?

Great script and thanks for sharing :>

I think I can oblige this, I just overlooked it and went for 'All Movies' but when I get to the TV-Shows I'll put this in...

I'll check into it if it's not too much of a hassle I'll also add this as well.

In addition I'm going to try to get the images that appear next to the movie link in the actual movie list. So it's not a game of seek and go find for what host is providing the movie..

Since this was just a preliminary release there will be updates so keep an eye out here for new posts.


Thanks Ilia & Temhil for the feedback. Cool

Just some minor changes.
But in this update you'll find that IMDB support is working.
Although I've scraped all of the info for now the IMDB image, year,genre, and plot are visible..

This site has a number of DivX hosts that I'm in the process of trying to grab source files from. This is why you may find empty movie selections be patient and eventually those selections will have the source files or a message that I was unable grab the file and to select an alternative.

You'll find revision 2 in the code page...

Cheers,

Fantastic thanks for taking my suggestions on board! IMDB works fine on WinXP+Atlantis...

Is there a way to eliminte the folder structure and have the movie show straight away?

example:
- Latest Updates -> show all movies with imdb info + thumb instead of going to the folder and then showing the movie

Great work!!

Unfortunately the file structure has to stay this thing is just too damn big and I'm not seeing any way with how it's structured to eliminate it at the moment.

I did compromise for you, I managed to pull the IMDB thumb for that particular listing, you'll still have to select an item to get to the link and IMDB info.

Absolutely, It's in Revision 3 as Filmdatenbank auf Deutsche , however not all the links are resolved yet.


Here's a view of the 01/03/09 change log:
## Added folder/filter for Filmdatenbank auf Deutsche 'All German films'- Mybad I just realized I labeled this Film Database 'on' German it'll be renamed to Deutsche Filme alle - 'All German films' as I intended.Hehe my German is rusty Frown
## Pulled movie thumb for items in Latest Updates - Movies Folder
## Pulled movie thumb for items in Filmdatenbank auf Deutsche - Folder
## Added support for 3 new High Quality German DivX video sources - Mostly German with Some English Content Atleast one of these has a 1HR hosting time limit so it's a game of chance if you'll get the file or a failed stream..

The Rev3 can be found in the link in my signature..

I'm off to grab some liquid bread.

Cheers,

First off, great work. I've been watching movies using your plugin all day.

Earlier I was watching a movie and noticed that the second half was not available via the plugin. The problem was that both parts of the movie were available on the same page, but you had to select the second part from a drop down menu.

I've been trying for several hours to hack up my own work around with little success. I was able to get to the second half of my movie by hardcoding the URL I wanted, but I was trying for a more dynamic solution.

If you could look into this it would be great.

NOTE: The movie I was watching was Defiance. It also happened with a Benjamin Button stream.
