Here is the thread for scraper for kinopoisk.ru (Russian movie resource). The scraper is created by LRFalk01 originally, and currenttly supported by myself (mitiok2008). Thank for everyone who spent a lot of time to create it and learn me.

1. Please, be aware that good internet connection is very important. Kinopoisk.ru is well known as slugish site and if in addition you have trouble with your internet connection - you can have unexpected results.
2. I recommend to store your movies each in separate folder called Russian (or Original) movie title. Torrent's names are usually very weird and it's hard to find exact matches for movies. From my expirience the collection of 120 movies put in separate folders was automaticaly matched for half-hour. The manual input was necessary only for 15 movies (actually only to prove propper movie from the list).


Version's history:
Update 1.2.8, 20.07.09
- changes, due to changes on kinopoisk.ru

Update 1.2.7, 05.04.09
- search logic slightly updated - movies with Exact match first (if scraper founds Details page) is recognised correctly;
- special symbols, like '-', '...', etc is loaded correctly.

Update 1.2.5, 15.03.09
- search for IMDB ID is add. For all non-russian movies IMDB ID search is available, it uses Alternate Title from Kinopoisk. Then Moving Pictures will take care to load backdrops from themoviedb.org. For russian movies - put backdrop.jpg file to movie folder. So far it's the easest option.

Update 1.2.2 07.03.09
- search for covers is updated. First it looks in cover_art folder, second in posters folder
- director's pull is updated

Original version 1.1.0, created by LRFalk01.

For what it's worth, if someone is interested in taking up this task, the Scraper Writing guide is located here:
Scraper Scripts - Moving Pictures

It still could use some work, but it should give a good feel for the scraper engine.

Are you saying that you have over 200 movies and this scraper is only matching 6 movies?

So far I'm not able to check working script. I'll do it today evemimg (mornig in US :)).
But I do understand what I'am ment - it's very useful here to name movie in russian words but in latin transcript (not in Russian letters, but latins). Since, there are a lot of letters which don't have exact match - that is main problem. But, I checked several times on kinoposik.ru - it's able to find movies in such wiered situation. I think that we should adjust scraper adn it will work.
As I said - I'll check it in few hours.
Thank you!

Well, it's gonna be a long way to Mordor, or at least to Evil's Empire (C) - Mr. Reagan :) ;)

Positive: it's working - that is VERY GOD. Then some comments (I've attached log file and will follow it).

You should start to read from 16-Feb-2009 21:46:29, because till then I was playing with MP settings. Then it starts - no general problems if you have movie with Original Movie title (English One). Even if there are some errors with encripting of movie name you can easely type it in "manual search" and it will find it. BUT it works only in case of close match of filename and Original Movie Title.
When it's in Russian (in Cyrillic letters) or in Russian typed by English letters - nothing is working. For example: Ljubov.morkov.2 follows you to proper page for the movie to choose from - link number 1 is exact match. in your scraper 16-Feb-2009 21:47:25.... : No exact match... The same with others.
This case doesn't work never in automatic mode nor manual.
The worst case with russian letters : it doesn't work with any case - automatic or manual.

I'll give you a small guide (hope it helps) - check for the differences for two movies : "dark knight 2008" or "Ljubov morkov 2". In case of importing first one is perfect, second is not. But in case of search into KINOPOISK.RU both of them retrieve close results - the structure of answer is similar.

There are some other mistakes in posters and cover-art loading but let's break through the critical point. I think the idea of using script for video files can be useful (see couple of message above).

Anyway - great start! Thank a lot!

BTW, working script for building mediabase doesn't provide much cleaver results compared with yours. As I said - your scraper works perfect in case of proper Original Title. I think it's only the idea how to handle Russian letters.
