    Anyone else think this is 'cos they are seeing a massive loss of users, and backlash...?
    Good that they are offering a free license though!

    Other than losing Trakt, we haven't lost any API projects that we're aware of. We've had a 5% drop in data contributions, which may be seasonal or Covid-related. And we offered many projects free licenses from the start.

    Hi, we are also have a similar plugin in version 2 of MediaPortal. Does the same apply for that plugin or would it need a separate key?
    The same applies for that. Go ahead and sign up for it, making sure you mention MediaPortal in the name or description and we'll be sure to approve it. As with the other plugin, if you can give attribution in some way it would be appreciated.

    Hello @ltfearme. I'm the founder and currently lead developer of TheTVDB. I wanted to eliminate some confusion and reach out to you with an offer. Well over 95% of our API users that had free access to the legacy APIs will continue to have free access to the new one, without needing a subscription. Some of that is the result of commercial licensing deals (as with Plex) and some is the result of us offering free or nearly-free attribution access, primarily to systems like Kodi, Sonarr, etc. Subscriptions will be focused entirely almost on commercial projects that would rather have their users pay for access than for them to work out licensing terms directly. This was created specifically for systems like VideoStation, since Synology doesn't want to put any resources behind their support for it.

    So all that said, we're happy to offer a free license to you. Had I seen it come through our API key approvals I would have approved it outright. I know attribution is difficult in plugins, so it's up to you how to determine if that's possible. Perhaps update the first post in this thread saying "TV data provided by TheTVDB. Please consider supporting them." with a link to our subscription page? Again, that's not a requirement, just a request.

    If you'd like to get a v4 API key so you can start making use of the updated API, please create a new API key on our site and choose "Negotiated Contract". Once we see it come through we can just approve it. If you've already started moving code to TMDB I understand as well, and wish you the best. My offer will remain open so you can change your mind at any point. If you have any questions, let me know. I'm happy to add you to our Slack, or you can email me directly (I can PM you my work email).

    Thanks, and have a good week!

    edit: Fun edit. @barneh liked this and I notice they have the exact same avatar that I use on Slack and Steam. Weird coincidence.

    Great work and release!! Contrats to all involved developers :):D I installed MP1 initially, but didn’t get along with it. Many things were not intuitive, too frumpy and the gui had hardcoded dependencies to plug-ins, some buttons didn’t work even without a note due to that. Same for player controls, why do I see always play and pause...
