TMDB scraper doesn`t work

Post by RextheC » Mon Nov 30, 2015 2:13 pm

Hello everybody.

Unfortunaly the TMDB scraper doesnt work for me anymore.
I use the xbmc4xbox 3.5 revision.

A few month ago, I have to change the tmdb.xml file in the "common" folder with another modified one. That has fixed some problems with poster and fanart (thx again to Dom DXecutioner).

But now... nothing is happen when I try to scrape something with the TMDB scraper (IMDB scraper works fine).
Can someone confirm that problem?

I have tried to use the previous tmdb.xml file (the one in the common folder from rev. 3.5) - nothing
then I have tried to change the tmdb.xml files (the two from rev. 3.5) with those from the 3.5.1 build - nothing

Here is the log file: http://www.xbmclogs.com/pvrju2fkw

Any ideas? Hope there is a chance to fix that.

I think there was an update on kodi few days ago, but I am not sure, so possibly needs fix.

Log page doesn't seem to work (did you set the paste for less than 1 month?), can you produce another debug log please.

Okey, thx for the info. Something else... any ideas to fix that?

I`ve no idea what i can do furthermore to solve that problem. Don`t want to use media companion or something like that.

Really hope that there will be a fix anytime in the future.

Edit:
Hmm.... what the hell happend with my log file :( When i have tested the link it worked... thx Dan Dar3 for the info.
I will produce a new log file and also will take a look at the time for paste.

Please make sure it's a debug log and to capture scraping one movie with it.
http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewt ... p?f=6&t=65

It will probably require a code change to the XML files, when we confirm the issue and possibly find the Kodi forum thread discussing it we can will open a bug ticket here and will follow that.

Sooo...

I've tested the scraper and indeed is broken. Although the link to search is properly formatted ( I tested various movie links ), it seems that, while tmdb provides the proper results, the scraper's GetSearchResults isn't returning any results as confirmed by the debug logs. I checked and compared it to Kodi's scrapper and made a couple of small changes, but still did not work. I'm sure I missed something, but as it stands right now, I'm unable to determine why xbmc is not getting the results.

Thanks, I believe this is the interesting part below. As Dom DXecutioner mentioned earlier GetSearchResults parsing logic might need to be adjusted - TMDb call does return a result (as you can see if you paste it in HTTP URL in a web browser).

Code: Select all

I can confirm that this now works! Simply replace the file in the scrapers->video folder.

Again, thank you!

Great support here ! I`m really happy that the tmdb scraper is back again. :D
Everything is fine... nfo files, Posters, Fanart.
I have changed the xml file in scrapers/ videofolder (thx Dom DXecutioner) for that info.
... and it worked :) :) :)

Thanks so much BuZz for your awesome work to the xbmc4xbox project and of course for fixing the tmdb scraper... fantastic ! :D :mrgreen:

Also thx to Dan Dar3 and all the other supporters who have helped.

Well.... I guess it is broken, again. :(

At the beginning of this year it worked fine for me, then my "old lady" died. So I had to buy a new xbox classic, got it softmodded, stuffed it with xbmc4xbox 3.5.3 and .... everything fine but the tmdb - scraper replies in german:

"Informationen können nicht runtergeladen werden.
Höchstwahrscheinlich ist der Server nicht erreichbar.
Möchtest Du mit der Aktualisierung fortfahren?"

In english:
"Information can not be downloaded.
Most likely the server is unavailable.
Do you want to continue with the update? "

And YES - I have updated and replaced the tmdb.xml file from https://svn.exotica.org.uk:8443/xbmc4xb ... o/tmdb.xml
But it does not work (anymore). :(

Well, now my "new" lady ist working, but the IMDB - scraper does not make me happy to be honest.
A working scraper that understands german and that provides me with posters would be nice.

Anyone who might help me with this?
