« on: April 07, 2012, 05:31:12 pm »
As you may have noticed, has again emerged and revived AllMovie.com web page, but with a new and similar forms as it already has it AllRovi web site.
There is now a new script, which is called AllMovie.com_new script, which is based on AllRovi movie script, adapted to transfer data info with AllMovie.com web page. Describes the details are the same as in the first post in the AllRovi movie script.

There is now AllMovie.com_new movie script to test and that do have any additional adjustments (Indeed, the deficiencies for which the necessary corrections, but believes this does not manage to fix).

This is a change from the AllRovi movie script :

Removed was a ParseDVDreleases, remained a url link to AllMovie Releases tab.
Removed was Characteristics and Themes, because it is now united in Characteristics according to the subcategory which are listed below, with the exception Themes links.


Added to the new:

  • Characteristics
    • Moods
    • Mood links
    • Themes
    • Themes links
    • Keywords
    • Attributes



This script has now been released and is available via the program's auto-update system. Run Help > Check for updates and choose AllMovie.com_new from the list.

While the style of the site is a little different, and some features are new, the data appears to be identical. Have you found any differences? Is there any data AllMovie has that AllRovi does not?

In any case, the script may serve as a useful backup to the AllRovi script. Thanks for your efforts.

Yes, small in user rating. In AllMovie showing the number of users who have given their votes for the rating, while this is not visible in AllRovi.

An example of movie: 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

http://www.allmovie.com/movie/10-things-i-hate-about-you-v177526/
http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/10-things-i-hate-about-you-v177526

AMG ID is not visible in AllMovie.

BTW: Transferred only posters with . jpg extension.

In any case, the script may serve as a useful backup to the AllRovi script. Thanks for you efforts.

Thanks, rick.

However, the this (user rating) can not be transferred, the same as with AllRovi, because the source code is not part of this information.

Good feature of this script is, that it works on old AllMovie URLs. Script of each of these URLs, not deleted or overwritten, so they remain in the URLs box. They also in the URL field added to the new URLs, which script transferred from the AllMovie new web site.

When movies are differences as already described here.

More visible difference is in the web pages of people.

For example:
Elvis Presley for AllRovi web page: http://www.allrovi.com/name/elvis-presley-mn0000180228
Elvis Presley for AllMovie web page: http://www.allmovie.com/artist/elvis-presley-p107032

There are many such cases as listed. Certain changes or differences are visible in the Info data for all the people, which are stored in the database.

My question pertained to data not visible differences, and movies not people. The Rovi site includes music data, but there doesn't appear to be any additional movie data—on movie or people pages.

Now what would be really useful is an AllMusic script for album information. The redesign of that site has hopelessly broken the script I was using (a mod of the original AllMovie script). I'm not looking forward to rewriting that. :'(

In the AllMusic new web pages are (data) information is really very bad arranged and some information are missing, given the fact, how the data were arranged by the AllMusic old web pages.

I don't understand. I use our AllRovi script to get data from http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482. I don't see any useful additional data at http://www.allmovie.com/movie/casablanca-v8482/. Rovi abandoned some data that was available on the old site. This data is still available via the Wayback Machine—if the pages were saved—at http://web.archive.org/web/http://www.allmovie.com/work/casablanca-8482. I only use that URL manually; I don't attempt to get the additional data with a script. Thankfully, in most cases, I already have it.

What is very odd is if http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482 is used manually, or as a link on an AllRovi page (e.g., search results), it's redirected to the new AllMovie page (i.e., both of the first two URL's above go to the same page). But our AllRovi script still works, apparently still accessing the AllRovi pages. I suppose that may only be temporary, and this script will become the only one that works. :-\

If I'm not mistaken it for AllRovi need to add this / at the end of the url that redirects to AllRovi web site. If this is not the end of the url, then redirect to AllMovie web site.

For example:

http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482  redirect to AllMovie

http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482/    normal at AllRovi

I just wanted to explain and demonstrate how important is actually recording the order of the URLs in PVD url field for data transmission with AllMovie new web pages.

The Wayback Machine URL - I have always saved there for check old AllMovie data (if I need a url address, we do not need to look again - a precaution just in case).

Hopefully, that will have successfully operate both of the scripts.

I am wrong, part of this statement is not true.

True is, If add this / at the end of the url, that redirect to AllMovie web site. If this is not the end of the url, then movie url redirects to AllRovi web site.

open AllRovi url at AllRovi

Correction for this interpretation - the correct interpretation is as follows:

http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482/
Redirect AllRovi url to AllMovie.

This example:

Quote
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0034583/ 
http://web.archive.org/web/20090324024706/http://www.allmovie.com/work/casablanca-8482
http://www.allmovie.com/work/casablanca-8482
http://www.allrovi.com/movies/movie/casablanca-v8482
And works, open AllRovi url at AllRovi.

If it does not work, then do this:
I use Mozilla Firefox as your default browser. Today I had trouble opening AllRovi URLs because it worked again AllRovi URLs redirect to AllMovie page. A simple solution - I cleaned up history of browser (memory) and again normal works (AllRovi URLs redirect to AllRovi web site).
and works.

According to some problems with the Releases page also AllMovie.com new web pages there were also some changes in web pages (some changes in the source code of web pages), were made small changes in AllMovie.com script, the script now works (previously worked, but there was no info transferred data).

Script AllMovie.com(1) attached.

It will also update for AllMovie.com script for other changes on the AllMovie.com web sites (will be more time for that).

Now I just managed to fix AllMovie.com_new.

Updated:

  • movie poster
  • AMD ID
  • cast & crew
Removed:
  • parseDVDreleases
  • Characteristics
  • Themes

Removed was a ParseDVDreleases, remained a url link to AllMovie Releases tab.
Removed was Characteristics and Themes, because it is now united in Characteristics according to the subcategory which are listed below, with the exception Themes links.


Added to the new:
  • Characteristics
    • Moods
    • Mood links
    • Themes
    • Themes links
