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.

Support / Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD

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:

What do you use when an error occurs? Imdb plugin or script.


I use the plug in, from the import menu. I don't know how to run a script

Scripts are located in the Program folder> Scripts. They are used in the same way as plugins.

Zorro movie
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072448/


The Imdb plugin with Proxomitron can easily download some information for this movie.

Obviously, something blocks you from the Imdb plugin to have access to the Imdb website. Do you use PVD with a proxy server and these settings for it?
It will also act PVD, you must also PVD settings \ Internet connection, find the "Proxy" and confirm. In the "Server" field enter "localhost" Port settings to 80 . Only with this configuration will function properly PVD. PVD is used only proxy port 80.

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

http://vvveasy.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PersonalVideoDB_MOD-V.Beta_.3.RC_.zip

Beta Testers: Run NOW with "debug.bat". So if you have problems, please is very important the name of the movie and attach the file: PersonalVideoDB\log.txt

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.

It works perfectly, this can be done as mentioned.

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.

It can be repaired more than it is now, and more on this problem, when these problems start to occur frequently.
