    Hi Ron,

    Just refreshed some of my latest movies and it seems that the WebGrabber failled on the moviemeter api. So my summaries are in English now, where the website is running fine.

    Code:
    16-Dec-2012 20:56:20  Info [   MovingPicturesGUI]: Updating movie details for 'Alex Cross'

    Not sure if it's related to your update.

    It could have been, because the way I build that proxy.php that runs on my own server is not exactly setting any correct headers. But I just tested it myself and it still works fine (I would have thought it weird if the allow_unsafe_headers would have caused a problem).

    So it seems you have a connection issue to my server, do you perhaps have PeerBlock/PeerGuardian/Norton/etc or any alike type of filter system that might have caused the connection to be blocked? Try to open http://blixy.net/mp/moviemeter/proxy.php?imdb=tt1712170 as-is inside your browser (ignore the content security warning, couldn't be bothered to add proper <xml> declaration and it has always worked fine because I'm not really parsing it as XML anyway).

    Another cause could be that you simply had a lot of other network activity going on and things timed out.

    The following is what you should see in your browser:

    Code:
    <source>http://www.moviemeter.nl/film/78886/</source>
     <title>Alex Cross</title>
     <year>2012</year>
     <plot>De rechercheur en psycholoog Alex Cross onderzoekt de gruwelijke moorden van de huurmoordenaar Michael Sullivan, bijgenaamd 'The Butcher'. Sullivan besluit Cross een dodelijke boodschap te sturen door diens vrouw in koele bloede te vermoorden. Cross is woedend en belooft dat dat hij de moordenaar tot het uiterste zal najagen. Sullivan is echter een meesterbrein onder de seriemoordenaars en weet Cross steeds te omzeilen en hem tevens naar een ethisch breekpunt te brengen, zowel als agent als vader. Maar dan ontdekt Cross bewijsmateriaal dat naar het onvoorspelbare wijst, een openbaring die alles kan veranderen...</plot>

    Confirmed, the URL works in my browser, so i'll try a refresh of some movies when i'm back home and let you know.

    Yeah, just did a refresh from GUI and that worked as expected, so all is good again!
