Posters (No Movie Found)
« on: November 17, 2011, 02:11:46 am »
Fairly new to PVD, but have about 50movies in my database so far.  Everything was working to export out to ROKSBOX.  Now when I gather information, IMDB pulls the information but I get no Poster. Sometimes I had to hit Import Amazon.com for the poster a few times and the poster would import.  Today its not working at all. I have tried about 10 different Movies.  I also tried clearing one that worked in the past and its not working now.  Anyone else having this issue. I have the lastest plugins and latest PVD version.  Thanks

Do you have an option to download posters checked in IMDB plugin configuration?

The Amazon plugin seems to be really broken (probably due to some changes on the site).

Great! That pulled down the images.  Now I'm seeing a different problem.  When I export them to xml for my RoksBox. The Images don't show up. Does IMDB label them differently then Amazon.  I looked in xml file and it shows them in the correct folder. Any Thoughts

Nostra, Thanks for the info about toggling the switch in IMDB to pull the photo.
Much appreciated!! as I can not pull from any amazon site, or IMPAwards either.
also please excuse the slight off-topic chat which follows (soz)

Jhackneyiv,
This is off topic and I will be brief.
Actually it should be posted within the RoksBox forums
I am assuming you are using the mongoose webserver.
This is my setup (JUST for the XML output, I do a different one for the "Web Pages(Index Movies))
I export my XML file to
Root_Drive\WWW\INDEX\VIDEOS

The export puts my poster pics into
ROOT_DRIVE\WWW\INDEX\VIDEOS\IMAGES

My mongoose.EXE file is located in
ROOT_DRIVE\WWW\(my mongoose exe file here)
index_files index.html,index.htm,index.cgi  (part of my mongoose ini file)
document_root Index       (part of my mongoose ini file)

Within RoksBox setup (going through ROKU screen)I have my videos.xml location, pointing to where I put the XML file, at Root_Drive\WWW\INDEX\VIDEOS

Most people start mongoose from the root drive location.
You just need to look at your ini file settings and you can change things around.
The generic setup is detailed pretty well on the RoksBox site
----- 

Back on topic for PVD now.
Personally, within the (built in) PVD xml export, I do not need all of the information that is parsed to the videos.xml
RoksBox does not show or use a lot of information within there.
This is my XML file output I use to help with the xml file loading faster.

- - -  begin cut line - - -
%OPTIONS%
replace="&<->&amp;"
replace="<<->&lt;"
replace="><->&gt;"
filter="XML Files|*.xml"
encoding="UTF8"
imagepath="images\"
imagenameformat="%t%%ext%"
%OPTIONS%
%HEAD%
<xml>
<viddb>
<movies>{%value=200}</movies>
%HEAD%
<movie>
<num>{%value=num}</num>
<title>{%value=title}</title>
<origtitle>{%value=origtitle}</origtitle>
<year>{%value=year}</year>
<genre>{%value=genre}</genre>
<mpaa>{%value=mpaa}</mpaa>
<director>{%value=directors}</director>
<actors>{%value=actors}</actors>
<description>{%value=description}</description>
<resolution>{%value=resolution}</resolution>
<framerate>{%value=framerate}</framerate>
<path>{%value=path}</path>
<length>{%value=length}</length>
<poster>{%value=poster}</poster>
</movie>
%FOOT%
</viddb>
</xml>
%FOOT%
- - -  end cut line - - -

My XML export file name is named "XML (RoksBox Movies)"
If you wish to make an XML output file specific for RoksBox, do this.
1.  Open a text editor
2.  Copy all the information between the cut lines above.
3.  Paste the information into your text editor
4a.  Save the file within your PVD Template directory
for me, using a windoze OS it is
C:\Program Files\Personal Video Database\Plugins\Templates

4b. Save the file as "XML (Roksbox Movies).ptm"  no quotes.
5.  Stop and Re-start PVD
6.  You will now see the option for the "XML (Roksbox Movies)" within your export window

One more thing
To help RoksBox load faster, keep the exported poster JPG files as small as possible.
You may have to redo them each time you make a new xml file.
As PVD will keep a copy of the poster file within the database and when you export the XML, it will rewrite the file again.
I use a program called "Photo Gadget Pro" to hi-light the new pics and reconvert them, takes about 30 seconds to do a couple hundred pics.

Hope this helps you some.

Yeah it was an error on my part. I was clearing the data on movies to pull from different sites until I got the info to pull IMDB.  It also cleared my file location and that was the issue.

Thanks again nostra, I'm working now.

The described problem is back!

I cannot get posters from amazon.de, .com and .uk since last update.
I'm getting the same "No Movie Found" message as described here although PVD seems to download pictures before. But they don't show up in the movie entry. The same is true for the last stable and the 1.0.2.3beta.
Could you please check the plug-in again and fix the problem? Would very much appreciate that!

Same here, are there immediate plans to update the plugins? IMPawards is also dead and has been for such a long time I can't even remember how long it's been.
thanks for consideration

I think it will be very difficult feasible, because as far as I managed to with quick look at the IMP Awards web site. The source code page is very complicated made​​, so Nostra no more work update for IMPawards plugin.
Maybe a donation by someone from users would be enough to convince, that would be applied to make corrections for IMPawards plugin.

IMP is def out, for all I see and try to understand, right?

Is there a worthy replacement / easy with the code?

Just now I've been notified of the newest amazon plugin updates - been ages! such a welcome update - muchas gracias!
amazon can be used to d/l additional / extra posters as well; still, my question about an alternate source to IMP remains. Hope it'll be answered.
