Working on my DB
« on: April 22, 2020, 02:50:28 am »
Heya guys. It's been a year for me, but I still haven't given up on the project.
All this quarantine time got me thinking in movies and updating my database once more.
I still can't do series.
I can't use the IMDB[EN][HTTPS] script.
TheMovieDB script works for movies, but there are no series there.
I'm using Version 1.0.2.7.
I think my problem is the Proxomitron.
When I run the IMDB script I get the message "Too many faulty attempts to internet connection"
I installed my Proxomitron using the instruccions in this post
http://www.videodb.info/forum_en/index.php/topic,4083.0.html
Also in PVD Preferences I set proxy server "localhost" port 80.
So I don't know how to do the thing. I have a DB with 900 titles, and I'm still uploading movies I saw in 2017  ;D.

Hello guys, just wondering,  I have an old PVD file, series used to have a tree with seasons and one entry for each episode, but I can't do that now.
How do you manage? Is there an option?, Is there a script?  :P
I'm using the Portable Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD

The series entries I have I made them long ago, with older versions of PDV, I can still see the entries, but I can't make any more

For Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD currently does not have any IMDb script to download and edit the episode and probably will not be in the future. There is, however, the possibility that this will work through the Proxomitron program. At the moment, I do not have much time right now, but at least I'll check if it works and let you know if it's possible to help and solve the problem.

The Proxomitron settings are correct, but as described above you are using PVD MOD Version 1.0.2.7. The reason that the IMDB [EN] [HTTPS] script does not work for you and the error described above is due to the Proxomitron proxy server settings in the PVD settings. Unlock the use of a proxy server in PVD settings and the IMDB [EN] [HTTPS] script will now function normally.

I still can't do series.

The IMDB [HTTPS] script will pass you certain information such as Imdb rating and votes, release date, storylines and awards, or maybe some other series information if you already have the url of the series. However, the IMDB [EN] [HTTPS] script for the series that could be used in the PVD MOD Version does not yet exist. Maybe in the future it will ever be ready on my part. We will see this again, because on my part there are many Imdb scripts (mine are also for Box Office Mojo, AllMovie, RottenTomatoes and one which I did not mention), which I prepare and correct any errors if it can be fixed. I also do not have too much free time to spend more time writing and editing scripts and testing only those scripts for proper functioning.

IMDB series and episode scripts may still work, but only with the help of Proxomitron proxy server settings in the PVD settings.

BTW:
I will look and find on my computer if I have any updated Imdb session scripts that would work with Proxomitron.

Awesome! I removed the proxy settings and now I can use the IMDB[EN][HTTPS] script!
I get some info from the series and most info for the movies!
I looked for the IMDB series and episode scripts but couldn't find them in the downlload site.
I remember using them some years ago in my old computer but I don't think I have them now

I'm already working on preparing and testing Imdb scripts to download series and episode information. If there are no unforeseen problems, the scripts may be available by the first day of May.
