I prefer the genre listing from IMDB, but when there are multiple listed, MCM only saves the first one. When I point to TMDB it saves ale genres. What am i doing wrong?

Hey Butlerr,

I don't believe you are doing anything wrong. They are just two different processes of grabbing the info. Let me explain. The TMDB is a free service that provides an API (back door) to their servers allowing any application (like MCM) to grab any and all of a movies details...for free.

In order to get IMDB info, MCM has to perform a "scrape" of the information. MCM basically has a embedded application that views that specific webpage for that movie and grabs details it knows are in certain locations on that page. IMDB reconfigures their pages frequently and I think codes them to prevent "scrapping". MCM staff have spent countless hours over the years with updates to our MCM so the scrape works. It was probably coded to grab just the first genre, possibly an oversight. However, their could be code on the IMBD page that prevents grabbing that string of names.

There are a thousand moving parts under the hood of MCM.

Hope this helps.
