I don't know if other users are having the same problem, but recently I have been trying to scrape info about a large number of movies and Media Companion seems to stop shortly after 50 movies (usually at the 52nd or 55th movie). I have to kill the application, start it again and click on "Search for new movies" again. It then restarts right where it left off, I don't think it's caused by any specific movie title. This happens in v 3.317 and 3.400. Not a big deal, but I used to let it run overnight and now I can't do that anymore.
Cheers,

Somewhere (which I can't seem to find now...) Billy explained that there are two methods of searching for movie titles on IMDB.

From memory Google is used for the first 50 or so because its quicker than the IMDB search. The 50 limit is so that Google doesn't temporarily ban you...(I think it was 50...)

Billy will need to investigate to see if Google or IMDB have changed something or if its for some other reason...

Cheers
