The IMDb scraper seems to always use the first result on IMDB when using folder names lookup. Usually this isn't a problem but in this example:

The Wizard

it is a problem as the first IMDB result is The wizard of OZ ('popular searches')

Right below the popular searches are the exact matches where the wizard is the first result

For nearly 100% accuracy you need to use the year in your filename.
eg
The Wizard (1989).avi

Wouldn't it to be better to start with "Extract Matches" and use "Popular Titles" only if no exact matches? I realize that no automated process is going to work all the time but here you have IMDB telling you that the "the wizard of oz" is not an exact match but also that "the Wizard" is... As you say you may need the year in other cases or you'd end up with the first exact match (or popular match as it is now) which may be for a movie with the same title in a different year...

Anyway I use your recommended layout and it (generally) works well for me.

Bye,
Dennis

I raised this previously here and agree exact >> popular. This is how the XBMC scraper works and gives much greater accuracy (even the year gets ignored at times due to "popular" titles).

Cheers,
