Just fixed the imdb scraper. An update to imdb meant the rating was not being returned. Just overwriting your existing imdb.dll with this one should fix it.

Download Fixed Scraper Library

Hi,

first of all I want to say thank you for this really helpfull tool! Big Big Thanks Smile.

Now the reason of my post:
I think there is an error in the scraper for IMDB, scraping the english version works great, but I'm from germany and If I try to scrape data from imdb.de It only scrapes the title and the publisher, no actors, no genre no rating no cover...

Can you please take a look on this? This would be wonderful Very Happy

Greetings from Germany Smile

ok so after rescraping all of my movies i found that movies released in 2010 are being labled as 2009 not sure if it's just me or if this is an actual problem.

Thanks billy for the great work.

I've just tested this, first I created the dummy file, "Avatar.avi" this scraped as 2009, but on checking IMDB this movie was released at the end of 2009. I tried again with "From Paris with Love.avi", definately 2010 according to IMDB and MC scraped it as 2010.

All I can suggest is that you check what year IMDB is listing the movie at. And if you still think the date is being scraped incorrectly then as StormyKnight said, an example of such a movie would be appreciated.

I've got my hands full at the moment, but once the next build is out then i'll take a look at the german scraper.
