Not getting posters
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:22:59 pm »
Hey people.

I've been using version 0.9.9.21 for some time and all of a sudden it stop getting posters. I can't import them from Amazon or any other place. Tools -> Preferences -> Plugins > IMDB plugin in > Click Configure button> Check Download image... I already did that to no avail. Please help.

Have you updated the IMDb plugin and enabled overwriting the Poster field?

Uhm geez i think I did something wrong here. To get posters I only have Amazon/IMPawards/FilmUp... no IMDB it seems. I apologize.

If you can direct me on how to get this working again to get posters/imgs I will appreciate it. Doesn't matter if its from Amazon or any other place though IMDB is best I guess.

I'm not sure which, if any, of the dedicated poster plugins still works. The IMDb plugin should get a poster. If you want a better quality one, the best source now seems to be TMDb. Unfortunately, the TMDb plugin will only get ALL the posters available for a movie, which isn't practical. If you run the data plugin, however, that will record the URL which is then available for visiting the site and manually choosing a poster.

Or the TheMovieDB.org script for downloading only one poster, if you wish.

More details is here.

Hey guys I have Amazon as default for posters. How can I change it to IMDB or use TheMovieDB.org as Ivek23 suggest. I just want a single poster to have something to look at when browsing my collection. No HD images or fancy stuff. None of that.

As I said, the IMDb plugin should get a poster for you. That's the main movie information plugin, not a separate poster plugin. Select 'Download image' in the configuration, and set 'Poster' in Overwrite Fields.

To use TMDb script, download it using the link Ivek provided and put it in your Scripts folder. I'm not sure if you have to, but restart PVD so it appears in your Import menu.

If PVD is already running then yes, you must

If you do this already, even before the PVD is running, then it will be shown in your Import menu, when you start PVD.
