Suggestion for IMDB plugin
« on: March 02, 2010, 03:20:18 pm »
I have the initiative to IMDB plugin, if it is possible to add the IMDB plugin>  IMDB configuration
additional address field for Custom DVD details and additional box titled DVD details
same way as, for example, possible in the top 250 rank.

The custom items would you add items to the memo field to be able to see what editions or Product Details have been issued for a specific film in mind as I address editions are as follows below and the like.

Widescreen Edition (Widescreen)
Full Screen Edition


Thank you so much trouble and we hope a positive response.

You may be interested in this related post.

I suppose it would be possible to download the entire DVD page and put it all in one memo field—just as Technical Specs are now (optionally).

I'm not sure I understand... You already have a link to the IMDb main page. You can create your own link direct to the DVD page. In any memo field, in edit mode, right-click and select Hyperlink.

I have two suggestions or questions:

1.)
Is the IMDb tagline may be arranged so as to transfer all at once with the tagline now instead of one tagline by accident.An example is Taglines for Hondo where more tagline.

2.)
At IMDb configuration, if the course to make it to Custom field for (votes, or others who are now there) into one such embedded box straight away is now to determine where they will then be transferred to the text [(votes, or others who are now there), keep in mind I have a similar variation as in the Image Folders settings (Preferences> Folders) but it would be here for:
votes,250 rank,Technical specs,User Review and perhaps some other item]
and a field that is already there, embedded Custom field Setup.

There would then have some space for another welcome feature.

Laserdisc details NOW is not there anymore.

Filming locations would be nice to add the custom field.

Sound Mix and Color is not included in For example Technical specifications for 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) but each one has Technical Specs.

If that were added to the Imdb plugin (custom field), this would be a kind of
alternative or Replacement for AllMovie, where they were Color Type and Sound by, which the new AllRovi page is not there (better put: they are not, maybe in the future will be returned back).

+1 for adding Sound mix and Color to the information downloaded by the plugin. These would have to go into custom fields for version 0.9 of the program. Perhaps they should be added as standard fields to version 1.0.

I don't think an additional field can be justified on the basis of the data not being available elsewhere, or it not being on a supplementary page most users don't care about. Most users (at least those whose collections include older movies) would agree Color (i.e., b&w or color) is "important." Most would consider Sound mix to be unimportant technical trivia, and it's often not even available. On the other hand, most would agree "silent" and perhaps "mono" are important attributes recorded there. Another approach is to combine the "important" attributes into a Film type field. This is what AllMovies did, even though it was called "Color type" (e.g., the value could be "silent, b&w").

The plugin should simply get the information currently presented on the main page under "Technical Specs." That includes...

  • Runtime
  • Sound mix
  • Color

While presented this way, these items are classified as "Basic Details." That doesn't mean they're specified for all movies, but they are for most, and there are clear standards for them. This suggests Sound mix and Color, like Runtime, are fields that should have been included as standard fields in the first place. Aspect ratio also appears under the same heading, but is "Technical Info" and is included on the "Technical Specifications" page (which can be downloaded, if desired).

I wonder, probably, other users of PVD, what it says Nostra on this interpretation.

Something was lost in the translation...I don't understand.

I presented a case for adding Sound Mix and Color to the information downloaded by the plugin, and that it be done now rather than waiting for version 1.0. Isn't that what you want?

Thus I meant to say:
Nostra, I hope to be adding a positive response.

Yes, these data fall into the movie database.

Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, there are some problems with the new fields...

Color is often presented as the link 'Color' followed by '([Color process])'. Where that's the case, the plugin returns (for example)...

Color                (Technicolor) instead of Color (Technicolor).

Sound Mix often includes a list of technologies used, separated by ' | '. There's a non-breaking space in there that's being included as &nbsp.

Looking through the records I tested, I see another &nbsp in Color and a &# x27 (apostrophe) in Sound Mix. So I suppose all of this is just one issue—the data is not being properly "cleaned." :-\

Sorry for this. I could have tested it more. Try the 0.9.7.1 - the values should be cleaned up properly
