For those who are concerned: Scraping of Rotten Tomato scores are now back with UMS v2.8.7
An individual API key will need to be obtained via omdbapi.com (it was not possible to use a generic key as the api keys are allowing only 1000 requests per day per key).

Is there a way to improve the accuracy of IMDB studio name scraping?

For example, Iron Man 2 shows:
Quote:Production Companies
  • Paramount Pictures (presents) (A Jon Favreau Film)
  • Marvel Entertainment (presents)
  • Marvel Studios
  • Fairview Entertainment (in association with)
Distributors
  • Bontonfilm (2010) (Czech Republic) (theatrical)
  • Concorde Filmverleih (2010) (Germany) (theatrical)
  • Constantin-Film (2010) (Austria) (theatrical)
  • Finnkino (2010) (Finland) (theatrical)
  • Forum Cinemas (2010) (Estonia) (theatrical)
  • Forum Cinemas (2010) (Lithuania) (theatrical)
  • Forum Cinemas (2010) (Latvia) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (Australia) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (Canada) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (Spain) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (France) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (UK) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (Japan) (theatrical)
  • Paramount Pictures (2010) (USA) (theatrical)
 

The scraper always seems to grab the first entry and toss anything surrounded by parenthesis.  After looking at about a dozen movies on IMDB and comparing to The Movie Database, it looks like a better thing to do is to use the last entry that doesn't have any parenthesis on the line.  This seems to be much more likely to give the "real" studio (like Warner Bros., Disney, Paramount) that most people will associate with the movie. There are some cases where it doesn't work, like all the Indiana Jones movies would be "Lucasfilm" instead of "Paramount Pictures".

On the other hand, taking the "(country of origin) (theatrical)" entry from "Distributors" seems to be even more accurate. This still doesn't work every time (The Avengers should be "Marvel Studios" based on the logo at the beginning of the movie, but no rule set that catches it works for most other movies), but, again, it's much better than now for most movies.

A current solution is to configure the scraper to use The Movie Database for studios, but since it defaults to IMDB, a lot of people might not change it. Perhaps that's one place the default should be changed?

where can i find  v2.8.9?
update button shows 2.8.6 of kodi addon repository

You need to update the Kodi Repository.

Access the Update function as shown here... Add-on_manager#Lefthand_sidebar_menu (wiki)

Then go back to the add-on and update it, but it should auto-update once the repository has been updated.

Your second approach will surely not work as "detecting" and handling the country of origin from IMDb is a nightmare.

The first approach could be done, but would take significant efforts and I am not sure it would worth the hassle. Actually what the scraper does currently is to parse the main page (e.g. http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt1228705/) and take the first one from the companies -> no need to toss the parenthesis as it is non-existing there.
Changing the default to TMDb is a good idea and I will do it right now! Thanks for the catch!

XBMC 13.2 Gotham (cannot update it, it was preinstalled on 6 my tv-box from my cable tv provider)
Works perfectly till last week with UMS and the movie database scraper
Now it's not working at all (UMS 2.8.10, TMD 4.0.2)
The movie database by itself works correct with videos (russian language, if it's matters), but haven't support for fanart/covers/etc
UMS grabs only description and year. It's doesn't work for me on neigher on movies nor english.

Help me please if it's possible and sorry for my lame english
