It looks to me like imdb is rolling out a new layout

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1673430/

The scraper results might be different for peoples as it could be an incremental rollout, so more and more people will have the problem as of version 1.0.13 and darmha 2, imdb scraper is scraping Image + description for me, unless I am missing something here..

Current setup:
Amlogic M3/MX + Linux + BOXiK Skin + Pioneer vsx520 + Dali Lektor 6

Previous setup:
Revo 3700 + flirc + OpenElec nightlies + Quartz + Pioneer vsx520 + Dali Lektor 6
atv1 + Crystalbuntu + XBMC nightly + xperience1080

lucid+dharma beta+imdb 1.0.13

I have a problem when I use this scraper for adult movie.
I get only:
-Title of the movie
-Director
-Year
-Genre

and NO actor (zero actors in database after downloading movie information)
for example this movie:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0481998/
I have an IMDB account, and I'm loged in when I do the scrap.

When i scrap IMDB for non adult movies, I get everything, including actors.
Here is an example
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083944/

Is this a bug?

NO, IT'S NOT.
XBMC Scraper within XBMC is nothing to do with your account.

Dharma beta 2 imdb 1.0.13 on Windows 7 32bit, USA/international title:

I do not get votes/rating, nor cast. Foreign movies get their original title instead of USA/international.

Akira ended up as "Tokyo Shoeshine Boy" of all things, which is the name of the sound track.

I also have several movies with no title, including "A Charlie brown christmas".

Are you guys on top of this or should I prepare debug logs? Clearing the cache did not help.

It is very easy to explain why some are having issues, while others it works fine. IMDB is a huge, multi-server website. Depending on which server a particular user actually "receives" as it's deliverer it may or may not have the updated UI. Within hours or days all IMDB servers should be updated and everyone will be broken until the scraper can handle the new layout.

can confirm that the 1.0.14 scrapes title, plot, image, rating for a movie that was not scrapped properly with 1.0.13

My Setup
- Apple TV
- XBMC Dharma Beta 2

Fantastic work, thank you!

Current setup:
Amlogic M3/MX + Linux + BOXiK Skin + Pioneer vsx520 + Dali Lektor 6

Previous setup:
Revo 3700 + flirc + OpenElec nightlies + Quartz + Pioneer vsx520 + Dali Lektor 6

Works much better, rating and english title scrapes fine, even for foreign movies.

I see an issue I've seen before though; some movies have the alternate title even if the original was kept for world wide release.

Akira scrapes as "Akira: The Special Edition"
Astro Boy scrapes as "Astro"
Australia scrapes as "Australie"
Children of men scrapes as "Les fils de l'homme"
Cliffhanger scrapes as "La falaise de la mort"


I'll post if I find more this happens to.

...but can someone tell me how I get the newest version of the scraper?

I'm using XBMC 9.11 r26018 on Linux - should I be able to get an updated IMDB scraper that will work for my version? I've looked through the forums and I can't seem to find anywhere that tells me how to get it.

Seriously..
I'm with Ansyhrrian.
Where do you download new scrapers?
I've been looking all over the main site and this forum for the past half hour and don't see ANYTHING.

EDIT: Nevermind. I upgraded to Dharma and it works perfectly now. Smile

All fixed (I hope) in 1.0.15, but the first one (Akira).

What approach did you use for upgrade? Blow away and replace, or in-place with apt-get update?

Thanks!

Hi all,

same problem as Ansyhrrian, how do we get the updated scrapers?

Do we need to access the XBMC source code repository and just grab the latest version (Not sure how to do that yet...)

i don't really want to do a full-on update yet cuz im worried how many of my other settings this thing will break (i use xbmc with an external media player KMPlayer and event ghost for various remote control work arounds.)


thanks!

Hi all,

I'm assuming what I need to do is this.

follow these instructions, and get the repository,

http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Git_Usage

then look for IMDB scrapers, and locate version 1.0.15.

This is all well and good, but when I follow the instructions,

it keeps on saying xbmc.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/xbmc/xbmc

is not a git repository...

any help please? =D

many thanks

No, you have to download or update IMDb scraper from within xbmc (Dharma).
Updated version only exists for Dharma (yet).

If you're using Camelot, then those scraper addons on git will not work.

Already tried 1.0.15 and same problem like here.

I have a problem when I use this scraper for adult movie.
I get only:
-Title of the movie
-Director
-Year
-Genre

and NO actor (zero actors in database after downloading movie information)
for example this movie:
"La grande enfilade" (1978)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0481998/

When i scrap IMDB for non adult movies, I get everything, including actors.
Here is an example
"First Blood" (1982)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083944/
