    @vuego did IMDb+ stop working? Because it relies on imdb.com to do the searching, and then on a proper match finally relies on filmtipset.se to get the Swedish information.



    Of course you are free to fix this scraper, but I do not think you can find a solution for the issues you are dealing with by relying more on the underpowered filmtipset.se servers.

    I haven't tried IMDb+ lately but perhaps that's a better approach. Search on imdb.com and then grab movie details from filmtipset.se :)

    You're right about filmtipset's servers. I wish I could find a substitute but none of the other Swedish movie databases has the same amount of movies.

    Seems filmtipset.se had some technical issues which has now been fixed :) so it's possible for me to start troubleshooting again however it'll likely take a couple of days or more before I'm finished.

    Alright here is the fixed grabber. I had to rework it quite a bit so I hope that everything still works in all situations. I've tested it on a couple of hundred movies and it seems fine :)

    Fixed Length, Filmtipset score (disabled by default), Summary, Search results match, IMDb score

    Works good here, thanks.

    Anyone know where to find swedish certification logos? There were some a few years ago from c more I think but that download archive seems to be corrupted

    @Ministerk, thanks for the heads-up. Do you know of any replacement Swedish movie info site? I've added support for filmtipset.se into IMDb+, and it would be easy to adjust, but I'm not exactly looking for one myself.

    I don't know of any site matching contentwise, but there's http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdatabas/

    Some title search examples:
    Match beginning:
    http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdat...father&type=MovieTitle&match=Begin&prom=False
    Exact match:
    http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdat...er&type=MovieTitle&match=Identical&prom=False
    Contains expression:
    http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdat...ther&type=MovieTitle&match=Contain&prom=False

    The Godfather movie info:
    http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdatabas/Item/?type=MOVIE&itemid=15789 (main page)

    Let's hope somebody will take over filmtipset, and continue their effort. Unless SFI supports an IMDb tt-ID search it would end up being a fuzzy match search, and that is hard to do with AI as it would be outside of IMDb+ search confirmation dialog.
