New IMDB problem

Postby MikeB » Wed Nov 18, 2009 1:37 pm

When adding new films, I now get a nonsense 8 or 9 digit number for the duration field. For example, adding "Saving Private Ryan", I got "92026640" as the duration. This happened on two different machines.

Thank you for the bug report. Download DVDpedia again and the plug-in will be fixed.

Thank you for the quick response and solution. There are a couple of other things about data from Imdb that I wonder could be better. For example, Sound downloads the audio format of the DVD. However, this information is then repeated in the Language field. (Some films have only the sound format in the Language field, but, I assume, these are from a earlier version.) I almost always have to delete the sound information from the language field.

Also, when I download information about television series, there is usually much information missing. So, for example, I used this page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0731945/ The result lacks the name of the episode (next to the series title), Theatrical, Original Air Date, Country, Sound, Languages, among other things. Is there anything that could be done about this?

Thanks for all your help and good work.

Thank you for the details and the URL. I'll take a look at TV series and try to fix it for those as well in the next version, including adding information to custom fields that are names after the attributes like "Episode" or "Series".
