Adaptation:

Perhaps, there may be many PVD users who do not want to start over. For them, we suggest the following steps. Let us know your problems to be able to improve the guide:

"Dirty" own PVD installation/collection adaptation for normal users:
  • Important: Make a secure copy and a test copy of your own actual PDV installation.
  • Unzip the download file versión and change the folders: Scripts and Plugings of your test copy.
  • Run PVD in portable mode (portable.bat) without internet proxi.
  • In Preferences/Movies/Custom Ítems add the fields:
    Set (Short Text), TOP_250 (Number), IMDB_Votes (Number), TheMoviedb_Votes (Number), FilmAffinity_Votes (Number)

Usage:
  • Download and unzip the last version file included in the first post.
  • Run PVD in portable mode (portable.bat) without internet proxi.
  • Launch the firs movie (or people) script "**** Scripts Configuration ****" in order to adapt the scripts to your own needs (for instance uncheck Active for no used languages)
  • The rest operations are the same that PVD

Important advice: TheMovieDB is the recomended script, for speed and reliability. Take notice, that your are downloading full pages of internet with image, ad's, etc. For instance if you retreived all IMDB info, your are dowloading 1+4 pages for each movie.

The last oficial version has been the 1.0.2.7 published in the 05 November 2013 by Nostra, the oficial programer and owner of the program.
After this date, the information providers has changed his pages and, the more important, they have passed to a secure protocol HTTPS:  PVD is not prepared for this protocol and crashes with a “IO Handler Value is not Valid” error.

Ivek23, the person that have supported the forum and the scripts programs with a important personal effort, thank you very much, has surrounded this problem installing and configuring a proxy, Proxomitron, but this require some computer skills and PVD is no longer portable.

So, we have made a MOD version of PVD 1.0.2.7 with the next characteristics:
  • Portable (run with portable.bat) and not others installations needed
  • Clean of not working plugings and scripts providers.
  • Script over Plugin preference. This allow open source code of scripts.
  • Secondary, designed for basic use and in connection with KODI.
To surround the HTTPS problem, it has been necessary to make an intermediate download in the file of the pages. This makes HTTPS scripts slower than with the Proxomitron solution, you must choose which solution to use because they are not compatible.

Until Nostra awakens from his Odinsleep, we pray to God that it will be soon, this is our humble contribution to this superb program, the most flexible and powerful movie data base:

The Beta 3 Release Candidate version with (EN, ES, FR in TheMovieDB) and (ES, EN in FilmAffinity) (you can hide/activate in Script Configuration).

Corrected:
1) Now all the IMDB images are downloaded by PVdBDownPage.exe so no more problems with HTTPS (but is slower because the need of file).
2) The poster and photo heigth are script paremeter in 1200.
3) The images for SearchList are downloaded in heigth 200.
4) The INTERNET_TEST_ITERATIONS   is now a script user parameter.
5) I belive that IMDB slow the download if detects several ask. I recomended use TheMovieDB first time in order to get the IMDB URL of movies and in people.

I do as I have said in the last post (see line 501 in the attached script) with a user parameter MAX_IMAGE_HEIGTH = 1200;
Tell me if this script works OK with Alexander Jamieson movie in your Win 7 installation (that uses curl).
If it works OK I will do the same in the IMDB People script and we can thought to apply in the SearchList.

By the way, I have notice that IMDB reduces the download speed if you do a lot of ask or if the page is not popular: Tehn the script ask to the user Retry. If you have a lot of this problems we can increase the INTERNET_TEST_ITERATIONS   = 5; before to ask the user.

Function DownloadImage(URL)  return 1 if it can get a file from the url and 0 if not exist this file.
With this funtionality the script can try severals resolutions from the no resized URL.
For instance: try  '._V1_UY2048_.jpg'
      if not exists try with '._V1_UY1800_.jpg'
      else with ' '._V1_UY1200_.jpg'
      else with original no resized URL.

In the end, the objetif is not download a big poster ... and 1200 points of heigth is a good size.

C:\Users\Public\Portables\PersonalVideoDB\Scripts\ I myself had to create downimage-BIN.jpg, which is missing ...
downimage-BIN.jpg is the intermediate file were the new Function DownloadImage(URL) download the image to avoid HTTPS redirection.
In code is "GetAppPath+'Scripts\'+BASE_DOWNLOAD_FILE_IMAGE".
Perhaps the URL BASE_URL_IMAGE_PRE + ItemValue + '._V1_UY2048_.jpg' don't exists for all movies.

Corrected:
1) Description issues (Ivek23 code).
2) Small fixes in code sections for Runtime (Ivek23 code)
3) Added birthplace in IMDB People
4) IMDB images begin to redirect to HTTPS URL's so added a DownloadImage function in order to download Movie Poster and People Photo by the script and not by PVD Get funtion. Not applied (still?) to the SearchList posters/photos because we would need a lot of intermediate files (better use TheMovieDB script to identify the movie/person and their IMDB ID).

Ivek23:

The proposal for the highest uploaded resolution of the posters should be 1200*1500, which is the limit that then works fine for the good functioning of PVD.

I'm agree and I know that if the script add some numbers in the image url name it can ask for a dowload size, but I don't know very well if it is universal.
Have you some informations or code proposals in this line?

We are near to publish a "complete" beta versión. Some anwsers:
Quote
It is also suggested to add the Technical Specs and User Reviews and Custom Fields codes, since these two were also in the Imdb movie plugin.
In the last beta, I put the Movie Technical Specs in the ~features~ field in all scripts. It seems the "thought" of Nostra for this field.
Today the MOD version has 5 custom fields:
Set (Short Text), TOP_250 (Number), IMDB_Votes (Number), TheMoviedb_Votes (Number), FilmAffinity_Votes (Number)
I would like to use the most of the PVD fields and not have to increase more custom fields until the version was stable.
For instance IMDB_ID is easily got from URL movie: string between the "http://www.imdb.com/title/" and "/" (line 1132-Beta 1).
Quote
... users of the Russian section ...
Great! I suppose there are many Russian PVD users. The translated versions of the scripts are made with ecobyte-ReplaceText and a file translation file text. I'll include this files in the next versión for further languages.
BTW, I don't see too many returns from the users now so I hope that when we publish the first version the people will start using it and telling us their discovers (bugs) and their wishes.
Today, I have two main "concerns": people who leave PVD because it does not work and new people who enter in the PVD page and can not find an easy functional version to use.

2) The 8 Mile description issue
3) Added the ~Budget~ and ~money~ corrections (Ivek23 code)

Ivek23:
Quote
The code for Gross USA can also be used. So I have a budget code for the budget, Gross USA and a box office.
Quote
The User Reviews code could also be added.
In the base versión, I don't want add a lot of customs fields. We can let to the users reclaim it.
Quote
Also added is the IMDB Id code.
This is more a PVD work than a download parse routine work. So I put in line 1132 with a optimiced code.

Quote
IMDB_People_[EN][HTTPS]
You can add altnames, birthplace, full bio and even awards, if possible. I use the most Imdb for peoples information, and occasionally also the TMDB (which is extremely rare) is also considered.
There is a lot of work in this point. The People explotation is not very used (even it not work very well in PVD) so I want first publish a PVD_MOD funtional versión with several working languages: (EN, ES, FR in TheMovieDB) and (ES, EN in FilmAffinity)

The Alfa 9 version ONLY SCRIPT FOLDER .... we are near of Beta versión  ;D:
http://vvveasy.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Scripts-V.Alfa_.9.zip

Corrected: Https in persons, AKA empty values and Change "Get Length" parameter to "Get Feautures"  to retreive original movie technical spec (RunTime, languages, aspect,etc) in all scripts (Ivek23 sugestion-code)

Change the ancient folder for the new folder. Remember run with "portable.bat" (that is with the debug mode set in this test version).
We entry in the script debug so: If you have problems, please is very important the name of the movie and attach the file: PersonalVideoDB\log.txt   

Now we are capable of change the script parameters, so I recomend see first the new Script "**** Scripts Configuration ****" (doesn't affect to database)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Important: This is a alfa version (even it not arrives beta level). Please is only for test, not mix your personal Database with this version. You may unzip in your desktop and run only in portable mode (portable.bat) without internet proxi.

Plot Keywords (~ category ~ "keywords") has not been on Imdb web sites for a long time as an area Category (also in PVD for a long time, the Category field is empty), but this information is taken as Tags and the info is transferred to the PVD Tags normal field.
In PVD there are three similar fields, with comma separated list and list filter capabilities and is not easy to differentiate.
We can see with an example, for instance with “The GodFather":
~genre~   = Genre
    IMDB= Drama, Crime
    TheMovieDB= Drama, Crime
    FilmAffinity= Drama
~category~ or ~tags~ (Plot Keywords)
    IMDB= Mafia, crime family, patriarch, organized crime, rise to power
    TheMovieDB=  Italy, loss of loved one, love at first sight, Italian american, europe, patriarch, organized crime, mafia, lawyer, crime, crime family, rise to power, mob boss, 1940s, 1950s
    FilmAffinity= Mafia. Crime. 1940s. 1950s. Family Relationships. Cult Movie.
For me, Mafia, Crime, 1940s or Cult Movie are categories of films but is true that nowadays, in internet, we use more Tags than Category.
Well how Category appears before in PVD, just below of Genre, I take this field and left Tags for a user use like own age certification.

http://vvveasy.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Scripts-V.Alfa_.8.zip

I prefer correct the AKA no results with a comprobation in the beginnig of the subrutine:
Quote
    Result:=prFinished;
    if (Pos('It looks like we don'+Chr(39)+'t have any AKAs for this title yet.',HTML)>0) then Exit;

I think that the problema of "Buffalo Bill, l'eroe del far west" is the comma because it get the countries. It's NOT corrected but I have some ideas. Stay tunned.

Now the IMDB and the FA pages are very big. curl download writing directly over the file so now "PVdBDownPage.exe" wait to have all the page to pass  to the script. In the precedent versions, with Win_7 OS is normal that you get a lot of strange problems. I have done several test and it works with my speed of line and computer. Now the INTERNET_TEST_ITERATIONS   = 5 (so 10seg). If you get some alerts of no internet conexión you may increase.

When I removed the code for CAST, AWARDS and MPAA

Ivek23, If you run the first script  "**** Scripts Configuration ****" you are capable of change the script behavior of download or not the pages of AKA, CAST, AWARDS and MPAA. You don't need to remove the code.

With the Log file I see a hint of the problem: When the script try to get the downloaded movie page, PVD fails and recompliling the script. I think that this happens because the download of the page is not complete (may be for the line speed or for the weight of the page). I have some ideas to solve this. Stay tunned.

BTW, "TheMoveDB script works flawless" because it is a API script and only download the data text in a standart order. The others scripts download the "user" web page, with all the HTML code.
