DVDpedia: no German serach results

Postby UweSperlich » Mon Mar 16, 2020 4:22 pm

Hello there,
this is my first post here, but I've been using DVDpedia (and all other products) for many years. I enter my new items using a barcode scanner, because otherwise this is not manageable at all (due to the volume of information). However recently many, if not all German sites don't deliver any results for the product barcodes I entered. I checked the included sites:

cinefacts: does no longer exist
DVD palace: website does not open
Wikipedia: does not contain any DVD/ BD information nor barcodes

Alternatively sometimes NL sites delivered product information, but they are also all outdated.

The Amazon API doesn't work as well, due to the limitations of the search

My suggestion in a new update would be to include the following sites:

Blu-ray Disc.de: https://bluray-disc.de
OFDB: https://ssl.ofdb.de/view.php?page=start

Thanks for your help!
Best regards,
Uwe

Thank you Uwe for the feedback on the German results. I have had the OFDB on my list and I think it will be a good addition to DVDpedia. Amazon has updated their API to a new 5.0 version and the next version of DVDpedia will have integration for that new API. Although it's actually not as rich in data as the old version they are repalcing.

I'll post and update here once I have the beta finished, should you want to test the changes early.

Any idea how long it will be?

I'm not getting German search results from amazon.de for Bookpedia either. Asking here instead of opening new topic because it'll be the new API issue you mentioned here.

The betas are finally ready and can be downloaded here (still having some issues with the Japan version, need more time on that):

https://bruji.com/beta/dvdpedia.zip
https://bruji.com/beta/bookpedia.zip
https://bruji.com/beta/cdpedia.zip
https://bruji.com/beta/gamepedia.zip

You can use my keys by holding down the option key and clicking on the “Help” menu and selecting “Amazon Test”. These keys will continue to work as long as I get some referrals from Amazon for that particular country store as Amazon is now making that a requirement. So if buying something consider starting the buying process by clicking on the title in the details view on the Pedias to open the Amazon page.

To use your own keys you can do so in the preferences still under Sites “Amazon Settings”. Now there is a pop-up button on the top right that needs to be selected for the right country, before entering the credentials. More than one country can be enabled by going back to the preference. So far it seems the access key and secret code can be shared among countries but one has to have an associate ID for each country.

Let me know if there are any issues with the new update or questions. I’ll continue to test and do low level clean up and release the official version in a few days if nobody reports any issues.

Kind regards,
Conor

Thank you, the Betas works fine for me too with the German Amazon site.
One small thing: under Format there is now always "MoviesAndTV" and not "DVD" or "Blu-ray"
