Yes, Fortunately it was only for a day...

Have we got any info/estimation on the IMDB plugin update ? (Pictures, Year in TV series, Full Actor Bio, not imported).

I was very busy lately. The fix will probably be ready in a day or two.

Thank you Nostra. Most obliged. We understood that you were too busy.

Please check also the date (that turns to zero) when updating a TV series.

Kind rgds,

We are  thankful.
The constant changes and modifications are a real pain in the code.

Well, IMDB does not offer an API, so the only thing we can do is fixing the plugin in a timely fashion :/

That's the burden we need to take on in order to keep using PVD, and we do intend to never stop using PVD. We'd never complain about the updates to you, mate, you're doing you're utmost to allow us free software of great value, so once again thank you.

As for imdb - they're big, so it means they would as for a whole bag of money to comply with the request of making the API available, which is not going to happen, and we know that as well as them.
Hence, we should be expecting another modification within a month [yeah, pessimistic view i know]

just a suggestion to nostra. How about making those plugins easier for others to help? Using some sort of scripting language. I remember using movie collectorz and they uses perl for the plugins. Because of that, others are actually contributing to making the plugins scripts for imdb, amazon and so on. That would actually help to reduce the burden on nostra for things like plugins.

I know this is not easy to convert since the software is already being developed up to current state. Perhaps for future roadmap?

Anyway I am happy with PVD in it's current state.

Last version IMDB plugin 0.9.8.25 - movie with error Gilda (1946) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038559/. If the Awards is ticked on the IMDB plugin options PVD crashes. Its the only movie i found it does this, if there are anymore ill update here .

Edit: Movie The factory 2012 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1132285/ is getting the wrong year, 2013 instead of 2012.

Same down here. It started today though, as last night it was working properly...
No Initial Poster and no Episode(s) poster too. (i.e. Scorpion 2014, or Blacklist S02E01)

Confirmed. IMDB Movie Plug-in is no longer transferred posters for movies.

Since Nostra currently absent for some time, and until then, when he will return and repair plugin, here is the IMDB Movie Photo script as a temporary solution to the problem.

IMDB Movie Photo script is found in here.

For the Producer and Composer has also stopped the transfer of information.

In the IMDB 2 plugin is the same problem with the transfer of information and posters.

I noticed that the transmission of information for Actors only from IMDB Main pages. Obviously, again, changes in the source code on IMDB movie web pages, so IMDB plugin all the required information does not transfer from the Imdb page.

Temporary solution:

Hi, is there any idea when the plugin may be fixed?

i tried the script (thanks Ivek!) but unfortunately it breaks the auto creation of actors, resulting in any actor that wasn't previously in my database being created with a blank name field which (for my purposes) sadly makes it unusable.

Thanks
