I've put that on our ideas list (this makes sense, but needs an enhancement for the whole internal API and some checks for other scrapers)

would be very nice with some black/whitelist feature because on imdb they have like 200 keywords per movie

and when you look in this it would be nice when you could scrape things like oscar winner as a tag too

thx for your work

Second to this idea - with over 1000 movies in a collection, discovery becomes extremely difficult. I can imagine great tagging could result in some awesome browsing experiences.

Something odd i noticed. As far as i know TMM does not scrape keywords/tags to this day. But one movie in my test library has a tag "aftercreditsstinger". Only one. It has been scraped with TMM. I can't tell how the movie got this tag? It makes no sense to me since i never used any other program or KODI itself Smile Any idea?

You must have scraped it using TMM's TMDb scraper with Tags field selected.
TMDb assigns those tags to movies with stinger scenes like this: https://www.themoviedb.org/keyword/17943...ger/movies

You're right - we usually do not parse tags at all.
Except for these two, which have been added for the "stinger" feature to work...

Thanks for the information and solving this mystery.

TMM only scraping "aftercreditsstinger" and "duringcreditsstinger" is great.

There still has - at least partly - to be something wrong with it, i guess.

As said, only 1 movie has this 1 tag in the whole test library which contains many items which have this tags on TMDB as i checked again.

Take "Deadpool" for example:
If this movie has been scraped with IMDB in the first place - afterwards - no matter how hard you try to additionaly re-scape the tags-metadata with TMDB selected - there will be 0 tags after trying. (this movie has both "aftercreditsstinger" and "duringcreditsstinger" in TMDB)

Bottom line:
- Tags-scraping via "scrape metadata for selected movies" (TMDB selected, of course) is non-functional in all of my tests.
- It only works via the larger function "Search & scrape selected movies" (TMDB selected - which is not what most users most likely want for their initial scan)

Thanks again! Smile

Strange. That's working for me: Running "scrape metadata for selected movies" with TMDb scraper always adds the two tags. Are you sure you have ticked "Tags" field?

Yes, i'm sure. Tested multiple times :/ Only checked "Tags", nothing else since i don't want the "good" imdb data overwritten. I only want to add the tags.

I see. It seems one more (any) filed is required to be selected to rescrape the Tags metadata.
