    This really is a great addition to MovingPictures and I wish I have found out about it sooner, was looking for something like this a long time.
    One question about the scraper, also happens with the original IMDb scraper. With some movies I "get IMDb - "as prefix before the movie title. That really is a problem because it sort them as IMDb - <movie name> so for example I get the movie 300 right after I am Number Four :confused:. Got about 10 to 15 of those in a list of 300 movies.
    Any idea why this happens....?

    Re: IMDb+ Scraper (Fix English, Rename+Group, RottenTomatoes, and more) v3.2.2

    I just wanted to post about the same issue. This seems to be a very recent thing, as I've used the scraper for several months and hundreds movies, and it never happened before. But in a last few days I've got several movies with "IMDB - " prefix; one example would be Jumper (2008). Perhaps, something happened on IMDB side?

    Confirmed, imdb.com changed their HTML code again *sigh*

    Should have a solution in a moment, stand by :)

    Ok, v3.2.3 is now available.

    I only did a small test, but everything is working again as it should.

    If not, then let me know :D

    Thanks for the fast update, I can confirm that it now imports the movies without prefix.
    So again thanks! :)
