What I find really annoying is when you edit the XML file to include an imdb id and themoviedb.org comes up with something totally different. It also did this same thing with Arabian.Nights.1974.720p.BluRay.x264-CiNEFiLE which it kept fetching as a scooby doo from 1994. I think for know i'll just have to disable using themoviedb.org

It is annoying, I agree. This can occur only if all of the following conditions are met:

  1. there are no results at themoviedb.org using the IMDB ID# (per movie.imdbLookup API)
  2. there are few results (or only one) at themoviedb.org for the movie's title
  3. every word in the search appears in the match (but not the other way around)

See results for:
  • http://www.themoviedb.org/search/movies?search[text]=Arabian+Nights
  • http://www.themoviedb.org/search/movies?search[text]=Beauty+and+the+Beast

There's only a few titles this should happen for. Once you have satisfying meta data for those titles, I suggest locking them so that future fetches won't overwrite your data.

Here's what I don't get though... if the xml has an imdb id, and that imdb id doesn't match at tmb then why does tmb pick some randon name for the movie and then go and give imdb a totally seperate id?

I mean 'the web' from 1947 is not close to 'net games' from 2003.

TMB should not be changing an existing IMDB id.

tMDB returned that match because they drop off "the" as a stop word (a, an, and, the, of, and a few others are discarded during most searches). Searching for just 'web' pulls up 'Net Games' because it has an alternate title in their database of 'Dangerous Web'. It's the best match (though still not the movie you want), so it pulls in that movie.

I make an assumption with my code that since tMDB is a community-driven project and that its data is fallible (given its source), that the IMDB ID # and tMDB result's IMDB ID # won't always match. I've seen a few examples of this and I wish I could remember when it came up, but because of this, a separate search is run.

With the confirmation and some changes I made in the recent release, this should happen far fewer times, though.


Install/auto-update to version 1.08+, which helps greatly in the auto-detection of title matches. It also lets you confirm movie selections (when enabled in Preferences).
