    Hi, I've some issues to find the movie "11:14" in the movie-xml database.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0331811/

    This movie has been already added, but I can't find it with the search engine.

    Hello,
    zag2me,
    I know it is an off topic but is it possible to add an a.k.a field ? (important for foreign movie)
    For example: "4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile" is a.k.a "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days".
    Currently if the name of a movie file is in English but the site contains the foreign name the search for the movie fails.
    Of course, this requires the plugin to support this kind of search too.

    Thanks,
    Erez

    What is your filename? Currently if your plug-in parses "1114" from the filename (after scene tags, etc) it should come up. If the filename is 11.14 it parses that to "11 14" which when submitted to movie-xml, does not return the correct movie unfortunately.

    Hi, I haven't installed the plug-in on my HTPC yet.
    I tested it only a bit on my normal computer.

    The folder name is:
    11.14.Elevenfourteen.German.2003.DVDRiP.iNTERNAL.XViD-XMF

    Try using a custom search string of "1114". This unfortunately is just a tricky issue. the search results from movie-xml just dont come up with the correct movie when you search with "11 14". Since you have an alternate title in there "elevenfourteen" this might auto match in the future when a.k.a. titles are added to movie-xml.com.

    I've batch fixed the issue with french and Spanish foreign characters in the moviename/actors/actors role/director/writer fields.

    Now I need to help from any Scandinavians as I think they use special characters as well. Can any swedish/norgie people check some local film entries and tell me if they look ok, or what needs replacing.
