How to group movies?
« on: June 04, 2013, 08:17:05 am »
The series and episodes feature is really helpful when dealing with real series. But what about movies like James Bond? If you use the series function, you could group the James Bond movies but you will loose the links in the filmography of the actors. For series one maintains the actors on series level not on episode level. But for James Bond movies this is not very usefull as we have different actors in every movie.

One could use a group field as described by Rick.ca. But then one has to show all films grouped. The ones that do not belong to a set of movies will all be in one group (with empty group field). If you put the title in the group field for those movies not belonging in a set, you will receive a folder for every movie containing only one film. Not very sophisticated either.

I would like to have the possibility to keep the links to the actors filmography for episodes at least for manually added actors. Or a group field that groups sets of movies like series.

But maybe I have missed something and there is already an elegant solution for my problem. Can anybody help?

If you are a programmer, then the best thing you can do to help is developing additional scripts or fixing existing ones. Such help is very appreciated.

OK. I would personally like to start with a TMDB person script. IMDB person script works well but TMDB has better pictures. TMDB has an API, but Version 3.0 only works with JSON. As I haven't used JSON before I do not know what that means for the script (I just had to learn pascal to write my first PVD script ;)). Has anyone got any ideas? API Version 2.1 will be shut down in September.

Any other scripts that need to be modernized or created?

Yes, I Imdb Movie Additional Information script for additional information, which interested me. IMDB Movie Additional Information script only transfers information from the Main Details page (still no changes in the script). Since certain changes to Imdb pages IMDB Movie Additional Information(1) script (already a change in the script) is not transferred all the information, but only transfers the information from unmodified Imdb page.

Please for any change in the script for the transfer of any additional information that interest me.

IMDB Movie Additional Information script(still no changes in the script) and IMDB Movie Additional Information(1) script(already a change in the script) is attached.

Until now, changes were made on the IMDB page for the following
    • Taglines
    • Soundtracks
    • Release Dates
and primary Imdb page url does not transfer the information to Taglines, Soundtracks and Release Dates page, but additionally attributed to the url address for each page previously mentioned specifically in the URL field.

An example is the A View to a Kill movie:
Quote
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090264/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090264/taglines?ref_=tt_ql_stry_1
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090264/soundtrack?ref_=tttg_ql_trv_7
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090264/releaseinfo?ref_=ttsnd_ql_dt_2

Individual script for the following additional Imdb page:
  • Taglines
  • Soundtracks
  • Release Dates

For each script requires two startup script:
 1.  download url
 2.  transfer the desired information

Now in the URL field with two URLs, the first is for additional Imdb page url and the other is a normal movie url.

IMDB Movie(Additional scripts) is attached to 7z format.
