    I've written an IMDB script to retrieve video informations and thumbnails from it.cinema.yahoo.com. All informations are retrieved in italian.

    Problems: some fields of the database remains empty because they're not provided by yahoo, i.e. votes.

    Runtime is not always retrieved because yahoo does not always provide it.

    Thumbnails are not so good, I'm planning to retrieve them from other sources, will be implemented in future versions.

    If you know of other good sites to retrieve italian informations please let me know, I'm planning to implement www.fimup.tv .

    Usage: place the script in %mediaportalroot%/scripts/imdb/ .



    If you want you can include this script in mediaportal distribution.

    Please let me know of any bug you find.

    Hello,
    I'll try your script as soon as possible. It's the one I was looking for... :D

    Also, give a look to www.mymovies.it. More movies than filmup, old movies too.

    I cannot help with script creation, but if you'll need help in testing any beta/alpha version, let me know. I'll be glad to help you out.

    I'm just trying your new script for yahoo...
