Coverart search no longer works
« on: November 05, 2010, 06:03:24 pm »
I'm having an issue searching for coverart lately.  Whenever I search through webadmin with either Amazon or IMDB, I am getting no coverart returned on any of the results, and the release dates are all -1.  Is anyone else seeing this?

I have the same issue.  My amazon searches generally return 0 results.  The IMDB return results with no titles, no pictures, and the release date as -1.  I don't know the cause.

due to the change in imdb's page format, it broke.

TheOpenMovieDB.com has a proper api which i've been building the auto-tagger with. If the imdb scraper isnt finished by the time this the auto-tagger is done then i'll make a webadmin option for TheOpenMovieDb.com in the web admin.

Thanks apagg, I must of missed that ticket.

I'd encourage you to add the option even if you finish the auto-tagger first, golgoj4.  It's nice to have extra options for manually updating the tags.
