When I select to configure the IMDB plugin to download images, this is when I seem to get this http://www.imdb.com/media/rm...  and no data for the movies.

Which is the issue I originally reported. I suspect all you did by recreating the plugins folder was to force your plugin configurations to be reset. You could have accomplished the same result by...

Turn-off Download image and wait for nostra to update the plugin.

About genre: rick.ca is right, genres could / should be taken from the storyline section, at least I'd appreciate that.

Concerning desired features: Well... choosing localized versions instead of MPAA seems nice to me. MPAA is far more colourful, but for me the German FSK would befit my huge FSK stickers far better...

Far more interesting are: Filming location, soundtrack, recommendations ...

But all in all I'm quite satisfied with the present (intended) state of the plugin

Version 0.9.6.6 fixes the problem with downloading images, but other issues are outstanding...

  • Technical specs and User review are not being added. The pages are downloaded, but nothing is added to the specified custom fields.

  • Taking Genres from the summary at the top of the page (after <div class="infobar">) limits the number to three. They should be taken from the "Storyline" section below (after <h4 class="inline">Genres:</h4>).

Kindly provide me with a second version of the plugin (for an alternate configuration for series)...

Oh, I thought about an abstract solution for all scripts and plugins.
Of course, you can have a second version of the plugin, but the bad thing is that I will need to compile it twice on each update :(

...That was 0.9.6.2. I think I've been good about not asking too often. ;)

Even if I don't use the genre from imdb very much as I prefer the information from allrovi, I hope that Nosta will fix this issue. The problem with the actual setting is that the genre items are sorted by alphabetical order and not by relevance. Hence, e.g., a thriller with some comedy, fantasy and adventure elements would be shown in PVD with the three latter mentioned genres. This might be a little bit strange.

Yes. My first thought about this was I might prefer they be restricted to the most relevant three. Then I realized this was the case. It's unfortunate the trend at both IMDb and Rovi is to favour appearances over the integrity of data presented. ::)

Same as above. IMDB plugin isn't working unless data is cleared from the record, and download image box is unchecked.

IMDB [EN] 0.9.6.6 Missing Info.
« Reply #26 on: August 03, 2011, 04:11:49 am »
I can no longer get Release Date or IMDB Votes any more with this plugin and I no longer have v0.9.6.5 of this plugin to try and see if this could still download all the data, except for the cover images.
Can anyone else confirm the above, or is it just me?
Where can I download older versions plugins?

Confirmed.

Given the nature of these and other remaining issues, would it not make more sense just to wait for them to be fixed?

hmm..strange that no one mention about the new imdb script the fixed the download image issue. Version 0.9.6.6

It has been fixed already (most probably it's nostra) and I am using it to download cover images no problems. Just updated like last night.

It's nice that you're happy, but most of us prefer that the plugin do everything it's supposed to do.

Thanks Rick.ca for the confirmation.  I was wondering where my post went to;  but now that I know its ok.
Look forward to a new version of this IMDB Plugin.

Sorry for this post but if you like you can delete it after reading to save space.

Also, if Download image is set, any existing IMDb votes data will be deleted.

This isn't exactly true.  
I have not selected 'Download image' when I configure the imdb plugin v0.9.6.6. Yet for movies I already have the data for and then I select the icon from the toolbar at the top for '[EN] Get Movie Information from IMDB.com', meaning to update the data that I already for these movies, those that I have selected; any of the IMDB Votes I previously had for those movies I had selected to update the data for; I end up losing the IMDB Votes and have to go to each of these sites and update the IMDB Votes manually.
Basically this updated version of the plugin is worse than the previous one.  At lease with the previous version all the data would be updated.  The only thing I couldn't get with it was the cover images.
Still look forward to a newer fixed version of the IMDB Plugin; or at least a link to were I can download the previous version of this plugin or any others before I updated them (Download Prior Plugins link).

I was able to get imdb plugin v0.9.6.5 and tried it but in the end, I still don't get any imdb votes or release dates... So I stand corrected... the prior version stopped working for these as well.

Fixed in 0.9.6.7:
-Technical Specs
-Genres
-Release Date
-Votes

It seems like I will need to download an extra page and parse it for user review...

Just tried to update a movie before I moved it to another directory and found out that the IMDB Votes that I did have, disappeared. v0.9.6.7 of the Imdb plugin. Tried to update another new movie and still no votes. No biggy for me right now, I won't be updating my database for a little while yet.  I did it just a little while back.

New Imdb web style is not transferred to MPAA data, at least for me it is.
