    Hi,
    It seems after upgrading to Version 1.4 Moving Pictures, and using the IMDB+ scraper, I get the Icelandic characters as rubbish. Any idea?

    Ugh, I hope MovPic v1.4 did not break anything. Will try to recreate the problem on my end, but it might be specific to your PC due to geographical IP location, IMDb+ settings, etc, etc.

    If I fail to recreate, you might need to help me with movingpictures.log files in scraper-debug mode, but hopefully I can fix it myself.

    Something similar seems to happen with other languages. I retrieve summaries etc. in the dutch language, but when the text on the moviemeter site contains characters from e.g. balkan languages (e.g. for the movie '4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days') they end up as html-codes. Presumably the same goes for any character with a code > 255 ...Capture.PNG

    Hi RoChess, any news on this?

    Sorry, was unable to reproduce it myself in an easy manner.

    Can you please assist me in debugging.

    Log files are *HUGE* and asynchrone, so I need you to import a clean *SINGLE* movie.

    So follow the next steps please:
    1. Open Moving-Pictures configuration
    2. Locate one of the movies that clearly is giving you issues.
    3. Use Windows Explorer to 'move' that mediafile outside of MovPic import folder range, so move it from for example D:\Movies\Filename.mkv to D:\
    4. Verify the movie got removed inside MovPic config (takes a few secs tops)
    5. Enable scraper-debug mode, explanation at: http://code.google.com/p/imdbplus/wiki/WikiInstallScraper
    6. Leave MovPic config open and navigate to the LOG folder with Windows Explorer and delete the movingpictures.log file.
    7. Wait a few seconds and hit F5 to refresh Windows Explorer, if you see movingpictures.log be created again then delete and wait some more. Repeat until after 5-10 secs movingpictures.log does not get created anymore (this gives me a perfect clean log file containing just the problem).
    8. Now move the mediafile back to MovPic import folder, so move it form for example D:\ back to D:\Movies\
    9. Wait till MovPic gets it (MovPic config Importer Tab should show you a green circle soon that search-node found a match and then a white checkmark)
    10. At that point the log file already contains all I need. So close MovPic config, ZIP up just movingpictures.log file and attach it in here.
    Then I will at least be able to see exactly what is going on and work on a solution.

    I've been rebuilding my database yesterday, as I like to use the Release date rather than the year to sort movies when they're in categories, like "Marvel" or "Harry Potter", and there's a bug that removes the Release date field from the sorting options after a while (corrupt database?). I've used the nfo tool that creates .nfo files...
