FilmUp image plugin: 'No Movies Found' discrepancy
« on: September 05, 2010, 07:57:22 am »
Here's an odd one. Searched the forums before I posted, but didn't find this specifically mentioned anywhere...

Updating the entry for the 2002 film "Solaris" -- since my go-to site for grabbing high-quality posters, IMPawards, returned the wrong movie, I tried the FilmUp image plugin for this title. It connected, gave me 3 choices of films, I selected the proper title (attached JPEG), and then after appearing to download, it gave me a "No Movies Found" error (attached GIF).

Here's my debug code. I was able to reproduce this error several times (and in several different PVD sessions), by the way.

Confirmed. The FilmUp plugin fails to download existing posters.

There are problems with IMPawards as well, but I don't know if those can be blamed on the plugin. The site relies on Google for searching, and that may be where the problem lies. A search for "Solaris" finds Moon because Solaris mentioned on a Moon page. Solaris is second, third and fourth in the Google search results. A workaround is to use this Web search:

A search for "Solaris" finds Moon because Solaris mentioned on a Moon page. Solaris is second, third and fourth in the Google search results.

So the plugin needs to be updated to show the rest of the search results rather than just the first one (Also to auto-download the Extra Large version, when available, instead of making the user choose each time); as you say, the correct result is number 2 in the search results.  Unless I'm mistaken, the plugin only ever presents the first search result as an "option," regardless of how many there actually are.  And it could be aided with Google's allintitle: operator, as I describe below.  Until then, to clarify your workaround, your Web search can be used to find the correct page on IMP Awards, and once you do, you can copy the URL (http://www.impawards.com/2002/solaris.html) to PVD's URL field and run the plugin again, after which it will download posters from the correct movie.

You can improve the Web search's results by using the allintitle: operator just like you can on Google's own site:

Code: [Select]
http://www.impawards.com/googlesearch.html?cx=partner-pub-6811780361519631%3A48v46vdqqnk&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=allintitle:%s%u
If you like, you can also filter out some extraneous results by adding -"Extra Large" and -"IMP Awards Update":

Code: [Select]
http://www.impawards.com/googlesearch.html?cx=partner-pub-6811780361519631%3A48v46vdqqnk&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=allintitle:%s%20-%22Extra%20Large%22%20-%22IMP%20Awards%20Update%22%u
One disconcerting thing I found after running a search for Resident Evil: Afterlife +"Extra Large", is that Google has either not indexed the pages for all the extra large versions (even the months old ones) or there's a bug that prevents displaying them all.  (Surprisingly, running the Google Site Search directly on Google's site turns up 11 results instead of 10, but still not all 13.)  PVD must use a different method, though, because it has thumbnails for all 13.
