i guess the main problem is that ofdb has seperated general infos about a movie from the different versions that are available.
first you got the infos that are the same on all versions of a movie (actors, plot, ...).
The rest (i.e. runtime) is different from version to version (dvd, directors cut, special edition.. what ever)

It would be very nice if the missing info from one of the "smaller" sites could be filled with data from imdb.

ofdb.de has no runtime information on their page, so the importer would have to pull the runtime from imdb.com
Seems easy enough, I have attached a scraper that should pull the runtime from IMDb. I haven't actually tested it though. I'll edit the post in a bit whet I get access to my mediaportal box, roomie is watching a movie. :)

EDIT: Well I fell asleep and it looks like several people got around to testing it before me, glad it's working. I uploaded a new version that ignores German articles for sorting, it is attached to my next post.

works fine - GREAT !!!

Now there is just one thing that should be corrected with the import of german movies.
English titles like "The Dark Knight" are sorted "Dark Knight, The" but german titles are just sorted by their titles.
It would be very nice if articels would be treated like the english titles (just for sorting).


German Articels :

Der - Die - Das - Des - Dem - Den
ein - eine - eines - einer - einem - einen


Thanks

Hello GazpachoKing,

thanks for your script :D
can´t wait to try it this evening at home.

It seems that you are skilled in scripting so i will ask you for a litte feature:

I´m using MP 1.0 Final with blue3wide.

When the discription of an movie ends, repeating of the discreption follows direct under the last line of the discription.

So it would be nice "and I think more userfriendly" if there were one or two "linebreaks" at the end of the description.
Perhaps in combination with a seperator like "---------------------------------".

Sorry for my englisch - hope you understand what i mean.

best regards
merci1983

Du mußt es nirgends hin kopieren.

Einfach Konfiguration starten und unter dem Punkt "Movie Details Data Sources" hinzufügen. (Mit dem Plus-Icon!)

Thank you! :D

It works perfekt! :D

I have attached a new version that should ignore German and English articles at the beginning of a movie title for the sortby field.

This is already how it is for me, perhaps the skin is responsible for displaying the separator? I am using StreamedMP.

EDIT: New version, also grabs tagline, next page.

Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things.

To keep from uninstalling the WinTV 10 Tuner, I'll just use MP1's (manual control) & stop the TV server. This way both programs can be used. So far no-problems with stop & start MP1's TV server, when trying to use WinTV 10 tv screen.

Yeah you can delete those old ones, as I do it on occasion myself and it has no impact. That is one of the things on my ToDo list for the plugin to delete all the old scraper-script entries except perhaps for the previous one, so at all times there would only be two IMDb+ scripts (current and previous as a backup). There is no limit...
