    Hi,
    this is a combination of the advantages of the IMDB (runtime, better matching results) and the OFDB (german titles, desc, etc.). It's a merge of IMDB_de and OFDB_xml (some minor own code) and probably no clean code, but it works fine for me (for my collection there is a error rate of about 2-3%). Thanks to the developers of IMDB_de and OFDB_xml!

    Complete film information is grabbed (only the tagline usually isn't available, because neither the german imdb nor the ofdb has it)!



    The script works a following:
    1. Searching result via IMDB_de
    2. Retrieving information (such as runtime, tagline, mpaa)
    3. Converting IMDB-ID to OFDB-ID
    4. Retrieving information (such as german title, description)

    History:

    v0.1 Initial Release
    v0.2 Updated data retrieval, FSK-Ratings
    v0.2.1 Improved FSK-Ratings (strip html tags)

    Da hier der internationale Teil des Forums ist sollten alle Beiträge auch in Englisch geschrieben werden. Für die, die Englisch nur schlecht verstehen gibt des das ganze verkürzt hier noch mal in Deutsch:

    Dieses Filmdatenscript nutzt sowohl die Vorteile der IMDB als auch der OFDB und bietet somit meines Erachtens den größten Komfort, da ALLE Filmdaten in die Datenbank geholt werden (auch Laufzeit und FSK-Freigabe).

    Yes, it's for myVideos.
    But I recognized a problem, with the IMDB search: Some movies with sequels (e.g. Scary Movie or Final Destination) do not work (e.g. Fin. Dest. 3 is displayed as 1). I'm trying to fix it...

    Hi,

    sounds good; but how do I force MP to see it?

    I copied it to C:\Programme\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\scripts\imdb, but I do not see it in the MediaPortal Configuration - Movies - Movie Database.
    I tried with and without "Update".

    Just too stupid?

    Thanks
    Alfred

    Hi,
    i just put it in the script directory... Are there all the other scripts in that folder? Important is not to delete files when you're asked after updating. And which version of mp do you use? it's tested with 1.0rc3. perhaps add another db-grabber in to the selected dbs, delete it and then look again in the list. (ist auf deutsch evtl besser zu verstehen. also füge aus der liste einen grabber hinzu, egal welchen, entferne ihn wieder aus den ausgewählten grabbern, also dieser tabelle (die so excel-mäßig aussieht). dabei werden die scripts alle neu geladen.)
    Marc

    Hi also,

    my fault (as expected ;) ): I moved it (like mentioned before) to
    C:\Programme\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\scripts\imdb (maybe from an old installation?)
    instead of
    C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\scripts\MovieInfo

    Now it works. Thanks!:D

    The updated version (posted in the first post) displays actors and director correct again. New: Support support for FSK-Ratings.
    Have fun,
    Marc

    hi,
    i'm aware of the cover issue, the problem is this the ofdb (which provides the german covers) only provides this low res covers (in small thumb view which i usally use its ok). his res covers would be in english, after my abitur tests tomorrow and thursday i'll have a look if i provide another version with imdb covers in higher res but in english

    also ich kenne das problem, aber das ich üblicherweise die kleine thumb ansicht benutzte gehts,. liegt an der ofdb welche nur diese schlecht aufgelösten cover anbietet. die englischen cover gibts auch höher aufglöst, nur stehe ich nicht so auf die englischen cover, welche man aus der imdb/imp in deutlich besser quali bekommt. ich schau aber mal ob ich vllt nachm abi (morgen und do) ne zweite version des grabbers zur verfügung stelle.
