Hi,

bugfix Version 3.1.1:
- fix nfourl lookup with uppercase imdb url (titel, year and rating missing on autoscan)
- more caching (imdb.com link to moviemaze)

the scraper: metadata.imdb.de-3.1.1.zip
the repository addon: repository.gropp.org.imdb.de.zip

Hey,

is it possible to add an option to keep the original title from IMDB.com ? I'd like to have the plot outline in german, but the title shall remain english because translations suck most of the time.

Other than that: good work! Big Grin

Big thanks for this scraper, I like it alot!

But it seems to have sometimes problem for me finding the correct movie. Maybe I am doing something wrong or there is a setting that I missed.

For example a file named "Avatar (2009)". It fetches this as a result http://www.imdb.de/title/tt0497595/.
Also "The Champ (2007)", delivers this http://www.imdb.de/title/tt0325164/.

I dont understand since the names are quite clear and the year seems to get just ignored.
This is the xbmc.log for the scrapes:

Avatar
The Champ

Thanks for any hints!

Even when I really like your scraper, I personally think the posters (covers) from videobuster are the best (as they are german too). Therefor, it would be a great benefit for this (german) scraper to use the posters from videobuster.de

Hi,

@devkid: this is a problem with the imdb search engine. You can fix it using .nfo files with a correct imdb url or using the full movienames as folder

@Anira: i have no idea how to link from imdb to videobuster. If you have any clue how to get the correct videobuster url using imdb i can look into it

Hi all,

the german imdb scraper 3.1.2 doesn't work well anymore .. no plot .. no fsk (age rating). Could some skilled person look into this please.

**edit: probably my mistake .. ignore please if I don't follow up**

Eisbahn/trackel, thank you for this scraper!

It works well for me with specific IMDb id search (see http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=120707). I wondered why some movies weren't found. There are rare cases where the year isn't [0-9]{4} but there is an additional '/I' suffixed. This has to be changed in GetSearchResults. GetDetails works accidentally ;-)

Examples:

Code:
<meta name="title" content="Armageddon - Das j&#xFC;ngste Gericht (1998/I)">
<meta name="title" content="Der Kautions-Cop (2010/I)">

Debug:

Code:
22:07:20 T:2752   DEBUG: VideoInfoScanner: No NFO file found. Using title search for 'E:\Filme.HD\The Code - Vertraue keinem Dieb (2009) [tt1112782].mkv'

I used this scrabber sucessfully for a long Time. But view weeks ago, it stops working. I found som reason in the Search-URL wheres the API seams to hafe chaged. it has to be s=tt&p=... and not s=tt;p=... but that seams not to be tha only changes. The scrabber dosent find the results in the HTML-Result even with the bodified search-URL.
Is it planed to fix the Problem?
Can I do som firder Help?

Hi,

i finally put the repo with my changes online on github: https://github.com/vgropp/IMDb_de-Scraper

Still no fixes about the issues with "(2012)" and the api change (havnt it noticed yet) as my setup seems to work fine. Maybe some of you can test it further and send pull requests or patches or more hints?
