Seems to be another issue or change at IMDb I am consistently getting "scrapper error" text in Studio, Genre, Outline, Plot, Tagline and in some cases for Runtime the other fields seem to scrape ok. Cannot say when it started but I think I scrapped last night so it was sometime in the last 24hrs.

I'm having the same problem as well. Running the newest build (3.154).

Hi,

Thanks for the quick fix!

Not a major issue but I still get Scraper Error "randomly" on <runtime> but if I re-scrape the movie it populates ok. Cannot see any consistency but it is happening.

I'm not sure how that can happen, the rescrape uses the same library as the main scraper, if the input is the same then the output has to be the same.

Nope, getting it consistenly on all movies now and re-scrape does not fix the runtime.

I will rebuild MC from the .rar and see what happens

I can now verify the issue, it seems IMDB are rolling out some changes to the html. It may be best to wait a few days before issuing a fix. The issues will apply to both new movies and rescraping movies.

Thanks, thought I was going mad. Anyway I rebuilt from scratch and re-scrapped my latest movies, it still returned the error when using the existing .nfo's but after deleting them it seems ok. I guess we have to be really careful and not do any updates on large colletions as it could really mess things up especially if like me you have edited some of the default titles.

EDIT: bummer, doing it again on runtime....
