    Hi all,

    I was getting a little frustrated that a normal IMDB - search with a german movie title never yields that great results. (Please note: It's not the fault of the original grabber, but an limitation of the us.imdb)

    So I modified the imdb.com grabber and customized it to the german.imdb.com. Both recall and precision for
    all my recorded movies got a lot better.

    So I want to share this with you, as a :D to the community. Just unzip it into your MP\scripts\imdb - folder and add it in the config page.



    Keep up the good work!

    Best regards :)

    Hi,

    that was exactly what I am looking for .... but it did not work ;)

    I changed following parts
    - Encoding is not utf-8 but iso-8859-1
    - The Keyword for "Kurzbeschreibung" is ( not longer? ) "Kurzbeschreibung" but "Plot"

    I think it has something to do with imdb and changes on code (?)

    Very nice work :D !

    I tested it extensively - both my updated version and yours is working fine, if I run the script outside of MPs configuration.

    But inside the config, everythings missing - plot, tagline, and so one....

    Strange, isn't it?

    I rechecked everything - no clue at the moment...

    how is it possible to run it outside of MP? Is it also possible to move movies from recordings to videos or films or so if a title was found in IMDB? I would like to have Covers and Film infos of my recording from prem**re and so on
