Full Version: Test of all 3 TMDB scrapers

Today I made the effort to test all 3 (tmdb) scrapers with just one movie. 2 scrapers failed one passed. TheMovieDB Movie Scraper - PYTHON version works. The problem with the XML versions is that they do not recognize any alternative names to the title of Tmdb, but only the title of the homepage in the selected language or the original title.

as a test:

I tested "Survive the Night (2020)" and renamed the file to "Ɯberlebe die Nacht". The translated title in German is also an alternative title at Tmdb

Is maybe also a possible cause why so many people have problems with scraping?
Make sure you have the latest scraper installed... https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2991031

Which is the third scraper?

I tested with:

Universal Movie Scraper Version 5.4.2
The Movie Database Version 5.2.2 / 5.2.3
The Movie Database Python Version 1.3.1
I can confirm. The python version has solved all my issues, however, it's much slower. The others have issues recognizing titles but are much quicker.
