IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](series) V 1.4.1.3 script

I adapted the IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] 1.4.1.3 script to transfer information for series.

The IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (series) 1.4.1.3 script is based on the IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] V 1.4.1.3 script and  works the same as the IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] 1.4.1.3 script. In IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (series) 1.4.1.3 script search and download all (same as IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] V 1.4.1.3 script) information for series that are present on IMDB series pages.


Only added
IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](series) script and IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](episodes) script

(Hidden) Custom Fields in IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](series) script and IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](episodes) script

Custom fields:
  • IMDB_Series-year

PVD custom field for Type/Comments in Preferences/Movies/Custom Items:
  • IMDB_Series-year (Long Text)

Other custom fields are same are also in IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script.
custom field.

It's attached IMDB_[EN][HTTPS](series) V 1.4.1.3 script.

Hello Ivek.

Thanks for the update.

What I don't understand is, IMDb series script doesn't import seasons anymore, like it used to, right? Please refer to screenshots how it was 9-10 years ago with old series script, and how it is now. Or is it something bad in my configuration?

Thank you in advance.

Here's to help, unless otherwise found in IMDb scripts, also Imdb_simple_Bing_Search, which works both in Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD and with Proxomitron, or without Proxomitron. It finds the specific address you are looking for and then passes it the url. Once you have the url, the information is passed to you by IMDb scripts in Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD.

It's attached Imdb_simple_Bing_Search script.

A question for Easy.

Is it possible to include something like

Code: [Select]
#NoTrayIcon ; To prevent momentary icon pop-up
run whatever.bat arg1 arg2,,hide

into PVdBDownPage.exe script?

I am asking because PVdBDownPage.exe isn't compiled as invisible, and cmd window flashes every time imdb.com is contacted which loses focus on other windows we use while downloading imdb info. Thanks in advance!

I remember that I did a lot of tests to avoid this problem. I also tried to get PVdB running and download in background, but without success.
Well, now I have repeated the test with NoTrayIcon and it does not solve it.

My conclusion is that the problem is in PDV: The script procedure "FileExecute" always change focus visibly when calling external program.
I don't know if anyone will have any ideas.

Note: The added executable programs are written in AutoHotKey and the source codes are open and available in the folder  .\PersonalVideoDB\Scripts\_Source_Code. Freedom to improve them.

Thank you for your reply Easy!

This is what I get whent trying to open script  (I am not at all familiar with AHK and scripting in general, but trying to use common sense). Any idea?

Also, could this link be of some help? Sorry if I am too ignorant and you already checked options like this.

Best regards

Is it only me, or 1.4.1.3 (nor any other IMDb script) doesn't import director(s) anymore?

In general, except for the Cast section, there have been some changes to the source code on the Full Cast & Crew websites. Try IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (afrocuban) script if everything works properly.

IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (afrocuban) script is attached.

Thank you so much for again prompt response and solution! Is it safe now to forget and delete IMDB_[EN][HTTPS].psf v1.4.1.3? I have tons of scripts and I would like to archive all that are: not-applicable/not-usable/redudant/with-a-minor-set-of-data-comparing-to-this-one.


Best regards,

EDIT: I forgot how to get all the directors for the series' "Director" field (not episode's "Director" field). This script doesn't retrieve that names.

First, I'm wondering if the IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (afrocuban) script is working properly.

Then a new IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script version will follow, only then archive IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] .psf v1.4.1.3.

EDIT: I forgot how to get all the directors for the series' "Director" field (not episode's "Director" field). This script doesn't retrieve that names.

I need a little more information on what you had in mind because I don’t have an answer for this at the moment.

This is the screenshot of Modern Family series (not episode(s)). We see directors of all episodes there. I can't remember how to get that. Thank you in advance.

It might work. You also have a link to the code page below.

Thanks Ivek. I will try changing code page, and wil let you know



The IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script only downloads the Cast section for the series, so the IMDB_ [EN] (HTTPS] (series) or IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] (series) (Miguelh1020) script must be used.
Now this should be done using scripts for the series.

Unfortunately, not a single IMDb script import directors of the series for me. I tried them all. Does it import directors for you?

28595 works for me to import cyrillic, but then it doesn't work to import Latin. I am absolutely positive that 65001 worked for me in the past. What could went wrong in the meantime, do you have any idea?
