Full Version: Scraper not bringing movie information

Hi

The scrapper is not finding the movie information but does show the artist and art from the movie.  Previously it worked fine but after the last adding of movies to my libraries it does not return the movie information. I have even changed to the Universal movie scraper and it is still not getting the movie information.  I have once of the examples is 14 cameras.  In het below links you can see that the IMDB and MovieDB have the information.

The log is below.

You are using nfo files, so the problem is not in the scraper. The problem is in your nfo files. I suggest you delete them or, if you prefer, upload the contents of the movie.nfo file to Kodi Paste Site and I can take a look at it.

Which program did you use to create them? They are not Kodi nfo files.

 I did not intend to use NFO files.  How do I change that KODI ignores the NFO files and get its own information? I would prefer Kodi scrape the information.  I am using Media Companion to rename the files in the required format that Kodi requires and did not include any other information from media companion (or at least not knowingly).

Delete them, or move them so Kodi cannot see them.

Thank you that worked if I use the The Movie Database scraper but when I use the Universal Movie Scraper it complains that it can not connect to the server or something.  I have some movies that I would like to scrape with the Universaal Movie scraper so that they can be done by IMDB.

Can you provide another Debug Log that captures that problem. I should be able to see what the problem is.

The previous log is of no use now as it was using nfo files.

Interesting issue, and something I don't understand why it is happening. It seems like the scraper or IMDB are returning a broken link...

Let me rule out one other possibility first.

You have the show named 5th Passenger (2018). That is correct according to TheMovieDB... https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/352548-...uage=en-US

But you are using IMDB who have the show as 5th Passenger (2017)... https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3165632/?re...f_=nv_sr_1

Can you change the year and see if it makes a difference? Let me know the outcome.

I have changed the name as you suggested but it is still not working.  Still getting the same error.

Ok, thanks.

@olympia Any idea what the error is here?
