    After two weeks of hard work, I finished the scraper for Cinefacts.de. I put a lot of work in it and want to say a big thank you, to fforde, LRFalk01 and armandp who helped me out a lot. I tested it and i'm very satisfied with the results but please remember i'm not a programmer or anything like that and made this script by learning by doing. I tried to get as much info as possible with this script so it is not the fastest and cleanest script because it has to parse several sites to get most of the stuff. Anyway I hope you have fun with it and let me know if it works for you (even if it not works:) )



    Stay Punk...

    first of all: thx!

    I would like to keep the ofdb script at first place. But there are much movies that have no description on ofdb. So, would it be possible to retrieve details from ofdb and for those movies that have no details, MovingPictures should use the cinefacts-script. Maybe there's already an option, but I can't find it

    Hi Mike1978,

    if have to think about it but i think it's not that easy because cinefacts has no direct imdb links. maybe i could integrate a movie title test but this maybe is not perfect because of title differences between ofdb and cinefacts. what happens if you refresh a movie with the cinefacts script??

    so long

    Hi,

    if I refresh the movie, it is sent back to the importer and details are correctly pulled from cinefacts. But it would be nice if this could be done automatically. Probably could only be done by MovingPictures?
