Can't you just Re-read video file? It is possible to import to that field, but doing so overwrites all the video stream data. Re-reading it will put it back, but may cause odd results if there is more than one stream.

The 2009-06-26 version of the IMDB movie information plugin writes "IMDbPro" in the director field and does not fetch any writer or producer-info (the respective boxes in preferences are checked) when importing movie info.

Welcome, c2357.

I'm unable to replicate the problem. Maybe it's intermittent—does it happen now? Does it happen for all movies? Maybe you're trying to access movies only available on IMDbPro. If not, please provide some examples.

Strange  I am using 0.9.9.11 and it happens with every movie I try.
fx. start with new empty database.
Enter (random choice) "The Savages" and import data from IMDB select the 2007 movie
and this is what I get:
When I view it in the peoples section it looks like this:
But, since it seems to be non-general I will try to reinstall a clean pvd  and see how it acts.

Did you enter your login information in plugin configuration? Try to remove, if yes.

Don't think I ever entered any login info. But a clean reinstall did the trick. To see if my IMDB login info might be the tricker, I reentered my login info, but the errors did not reemerge. Problem solved but not identified! Thanks anyway.

Not so fast... Now it's doing the same thing to me! :o

Here's my log. The redirection to the login page looks suspicious, but I suppose that's "normal." Adding or removing logon information from the configuration makes no difference. After restarting the program, it worked—but only once. Same thing when I reinstalled the program. This is not surprising, as I'm sure it was up-to-date anyway, and I didn't do a clean install.

In fiddling around with this, the problem seemed to go away, and then came back. I was about to conclude it must be an intermittent thing (having something to do with the website). But it bothered me that a clean install seemed to fix it. So I experimented with imdbconf.cfg—disabling it, restarting the program, re-enabling, etc. I soon found I was able to cause the problem to return. I haven't been able to pin down exactly what's going on, but it's consistent enough to conclude the problem has something to do with how the configuration settings are saved and recalled. I put it that way because I haven't been able to cause or fix the problem by changing the configuration within the program. The change only occurs after the program is restarted. I don't know if the specific setting changed makes any difference, but the one I've had the most "luck" with (i.e., causing something to happen) is Download tags from the first page only. Even then, it's not consistent, and I have yet to see any pattern in whether it's set to on or off. It's making a change, restarting the program, and running the plugin—twice—that seems to make the difference. Sometimes. :-\

After getting this far, I decided to see if I could get it in a stable state by not changing the configuration. No such luck. Regardless of which way that setting was set, and even if it was last changed to fix the problem, restarting the program causes the problem to return. It makes me wonder if this is happening to everyone, and is just to subtle to notice. Fortunately, it happened to in the "working" state when I ran the plugin overnight to update my entire database for the new votes and top 250 data. :)

Yes, I just got it again too...

Restarting the program fixed it.

Haha :) yes I'm just doing a test lookup each time I start it up... if it works once, it seems to keep working until a restart.

Surely others have noticed this?

Thanks Nostra will see how it goes :)

(...and wrong thread, but the TVDb plugin has, in the last few days, stopped downloading episodes for me too! ... it seems the more sources you end up using, the more you need to make sure the plugins are fit and working!)

Dear friend,

I am a new member here. First to say that PDV is an excellent piece of software, after which I uninstalled all others that I had used for catalogin my collection. But these days using 0.9.9.9. I've noticed the same problem: when adding new movies, no info about director or writer, and no actors and characters are downloaded. I tried with several movies, I installed 0.9.9.11, went back to previous version, but still problems (the same as in above posted screenshots). I did not reconfigure any plugins (although, I perhaps touched something accidentally). Advice me what to do, cause, obviously I am not the only one.
Regards,
Drago from Serbia

Thanks for the quick fix!

I think it should be updated in the installer as well.

I had the aforementioned problem (getting "IMDBpro" entries) and just updated to the new IMDB plugin version.  That problem went away, but a new problem has appeared.  It does not appear to be loading Actor, Producer, or Composer entries at all anymore.  Only Director and Writer entries are loaded successfully, for some reason.  I'm using a recent clean install of PVD 0.9.9.11, and I've never entered any IMDB login info into the plugin configuration.

Welcome, Drago.

if you have not already, re-install 0.9.9.11. As of right now, the 0.9.9.11 installer still contains the old version of the IMDb plugin (the one with the bug). Download the fixed version. This contains IMDb.dll—copy this to your Plugins folder, overwriting the old version of the file.
