Yes, this is a mistake that will be corrected in the next IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script version.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your work for keeping this software alive.  :)

BTW, the duration of the movie is imported to 'Features' instead of 'Duration'.

Yes, this is a mistake that will be corrected in the next IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script version. Within a few days, the patches will be posted from my site (I need to do some tests because I've fixed the errors) in this topic and then the new IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script version will be published.

That’s very cool to interact with the programmer to help improving the software. :)

Great new to have a German user.

Yes, in fact Swiss user but no matter  ;)

I corrected the german translation, it is a bit difficult because I think the English is not perfect, too   ;) ;)

There are two way to control the saved of information in the PVD database.

Thank you very much, now I got it how to configure the script.

The launch of the configuration script does not work if PVD is stored in a path containing spaces (for example "D:\Personal Video Database")   see attached error. (how to embed the screenshot?)

On "Save Config" PVD restarts with the sample movie database instead of the last I had open.

BTW, the duration of the movie is imported to 'Features' instead of 'Duration'.

This isn't easy because PVD interacts with the focus but I have understood your request: To work with PVD in second plane completely.
With this information I'll try to do something if possible.

That would be awesome, because I still prefer iMDb (a little bit)   :)

Please add a german version of the script - I copied the english one and modified it, works  :)
Great new to have a German user.
It's true that TMDB have a german version but I don't know german. But don't worry I'd prepared the scripts for easy translation: I use a txt file with the first line in english and the second in the 'foreign' language.
I'd done the draft of german translation with Google attached. May you correct those files in order to incorporate to the MOD version?
BTW, if there is other 'foreign' person with other language need all help are welcome.

It imports a screenshot of the movie, how to disable this?
There are two way to control the saved of information in the PVD database.
1) The PVD standard with the 'Set Overwrite Options for the selected plugin' (the "Calendar" button, at right of the script 'Import name').
2) The custom fields and others aren't included in this option so the scripts have hardcode parameters that now are easily changed launching the first script '**** Scripts Configuration ****' (you must have selected one movie or one person).
This is the way to disable the screenshot save:
a) Launch the PVD MOD Configuration Script:



b) With this the PDV MOD Script Configuration windows opens. In the wanted script sheet, Enable or disable your preference (Screenshot with a horizontal blue arrow)



c) Saved it (vertical blue arrow)

BTW you can activate or deactivate a script checking the Active box (green circle)

What about (maybe optionally) not recovering the focus of the PVD window, ...

Is it possible to hide the flickering windows or run them minimized?
unfortunately not because the PVD makes the launch. The MOD tries to hide it and recover the focus of windows PVD, but it can not be done more.
What about (maybe optionally) not recovering the focus of the PVD window, maybe one can work with another software without the flickering and even not jumping out of a full screen game. ;)

Have you tried the TheMovieDB script? This free provider is specially designed for this type of programs: download only the precise information in text mode, so it works very fast.
Ok, this seems to be an nice alternative.

It imports a screenshot of the movie, how to disable this?

Today the scripts configuration parameters are hardcode in the script. This is not a good practice (and BTW is the reason why PVD must restart after use **** Scripts Configuration ****).

In the pluging system there are two funtions (CanConfig, Configure) in order to activate and use de 'Configure Selected pluging' buttom (the "Tool" buttom, at right of the 'Import name', between 'Launch Import' buttom and 'Set Overview Options') (see Programming own plugins).

Somebody know how do that for the Scripts?

Ivek23, may you test the script in order to verify if it work as you expect even with your custom fields?

I will test, it will take a few days or a week or two, all depends on my free time, which unfortunately I do not have much at the moment. It can also be anything sooner, we will see, because I have found some more errors that I have repaired and checked if they work properly.

Attached the files and scripts with the next changelog:
IMDB_[EN][HTTPS]
        V 1.2.0.0 (11/09/2018) VVV: PVdBScriptConfig.ini -> Bug corrected "GET_FULL_FEATURES"
           Ivek23: ParsePage_IMDBMovieCREDIT (Full Cast and Crew section) = Repaired pieces of code for transmitting actors information
           Ivek23: ParsePage_IMDBSearchTitle = Corrected missing posters in search movies results.
           Ivek23: ParsePage_IMDBMovieMPAA = Corrected parts of the code.
           Ivek23: ParsePage = Added compatibility with CustomFields ~IMDbID~, ~Updated~ (last needed because is not possible save in ~moddate~).
           Ivek23,VVV: ParsePage_IMDBMovieBASE = Corrected to the API evolution. Now get "keywords" in ~tags~ (not in ~category~). Get ~origlang~.
                       Added compatibility with CustomFields ~Bottom 100~, ~Metascore~, ~User Reviews~
                      New script parameter PRESERVE-PVD-DESCRIPTION-SETTING = Avoid double use of ~description~ and ~comment~ using only the user check fields table selection otherwise try get "Storyline" and "plot_Summary".
           Ivek23,VVV: New script parameter PRESERVE-USER-MOVIE-CHARS = Preserve the user movie copy characteristics (length and languages channels) instead of the original runtime and languages.
           Ivek23,VVV: ParsePage_IMDBMovieTECHNICAL = Added compatibility with CustomFields ~ImdbTechSpecs~ (original PVD ~features~ can be disabled in the program check fields table)
TheMovieDB_[XX][API]
        V 1.0.0.1 (11/09/2018)  VVV: TheMovieDB "keywords" info goes to ~tags~ PVD field (Ivek23 suggestion). Added ~Updated~ field.
FilmAffinity_[XX][HTTPS]
            V 4.0.0.4 (11/09/2018) VVV: Added ~Updated~ field

Some commentaries:
It will be added the custom field ~Updated~(Short text)  to the standard database because the PVD give problems with the ~moddate~ but the other custom fields, even if the scripts write the information, will not be added because are provider oriented.
There are two database uses:
1) the use at the same time of ~description~ and ~comments~
2) set the original lengh movie and lenguage that over the user file movie copy
that are not standart. Now there is two script parameters to allow the user this behavior.

Ivek23, may you test the script in order to verify if it work as you expect even with your custom fields?
When all work I' ll publish a new MOD version. Please, as me if you have any doubt.  ;D

Ivek23 you had done an extraordinary work. It will take me some weeks to put in in a new MOD version.

Thanks.

I have one question in order to set un standart for ~genre~ / ~category~ / ~tags~. I try to summary:
~genre~ = Present as "genre" in IMDB, TheMovieDB, FilmAffinity,AllMovie
~tags~   = Present as "keywords" in IMDB, AllMovie, TheMovieDB

Yes, correct reasoning.

~category~ = Not present in IMDB neither TheMovieDB but

The same for this.

     FilmAffinity have the information "Genre1.Genre2 | Category1.Category2"

For this, I can not say anything because I do not use it.

     AllMovie have the information Theme1 | Theme2 | Theme3 | Theme4 |

Yes, but there are several of these categories under different names. It will be necessary to list the names of these, so that I can answer this in more detail.

I have other questions over the custom fields but I must study one by one.

With questions on this problem, when you need it.
