    Check the link I gave. MovingPictures for me completely replaces MyVideos and has very smart recognition of movies for imdb grabbing.

    As per Infinityloop's request, I'm posting an updated imdb.com grabber script here. Changes:

    • fixed number of votes and rating grabbing.

    Pirppuli,

    Does this script grab the entire description ? The current default one gets stuck on either I or |

    After it gets to this character, it stops grabbing any plot/description/info.

    As per the above post, there is still the bug where it is getting stuck on the | character in the description/plot.

    Additionally here are some other bugs I posted else where which I have found with the scanner.

    These are quite brief descriptions of the errors/bugs/issues. Please let me know and I can expand on them. Thanks for your efforts thus far :)

    I made some changes to the script:
    1. Added partial match handling. As a side effect you'll get more matches even when there are exact matches.
    2. Added HTML entity decoding in various places.
    3. Removed direct-to-video (V) releases from exclude list.
    4. Added removal of commas from votes, as they are interpreted as decimal points in some countries.
    5. Added removal of pipe character from the end of taglines and plot outlines.

    MP only appears to pass alphanumeric characters to the grabber in the title string (without the year, even if supplied in the file name). E.g. "The In-Laws (2003)" is searched as "the in laws", which only produces partial matches. Unless the way MP itself outputs the search strings is changed, the script cannot do anything about this. Displaying partial matches is a workaround.

    The changes I made should address problems 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 in your list. You are welcome to try the attached grabber at your own risk :). As far as I could see, the only problem with the pipe character (|) was that it wasn't stripped from taglines or plot outlines.

    Please note that I'm not a professional programmer nor am I the developer of this script. The changes I made may have some unintentional side effects that I have not foreseen.

    Im new here and I dont know if somebody already done something like it, but I would like a grabber that works as the one in XBMC.
    *It can search on folder names (for us who just unrar the stuff)
    *It dosent bother if its two or more files in the folder (pile them togheter as one movie)
    *A lot more flexible

    I dont know if this is an grabber issue or a program issue, but if there is a folder with a dvd movie in it (.vob .ifo) it does not make it to one movie.

    The MediaPortal team have been concentrating on other issues and have not really taken much interest in the development of the imdb grabbing software/method.

    However, there is scheduled work to take place in the coming releases as a new developer is now on the team.. Also there are plugins such as Moving Pictures which has a great grabbing system and nice GUI.

    Hopefully when gamejester starts on the grabber in the next version they will improve the standard as he previously has with test builds.
