Scraping very short movie titles impossible?
#1
I have 2 movies in my library that WILL NOT scrape to the correct movies using the universal scraper.

I.T. (2016) -> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2679552/
I.Q. (1994) -> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110099/

Clearly you can see what they have in common.

The files are named, for example, I.Q. (1994).mkv and when scanned I get anything BUT the correct movie - and the manual refresh list does NOT contain the correct movie for me to pick, but dozens of entirely unrelated ones. If I make it IQ (1994).mkv with no periods, there's no improvement.

So... how can I get these listings corrected? Right now they just show as the first random incorrect result it gives, which isn't any help at all.

Make a file in the same directory called I.Q. (1994).nfo [1]. The file should contain on line

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110099/

[1] ie exactly the same as your movie with the extension .nfo instead of .mkv

Thanks. Not the most elegant solution - hate creating needless files in my directories - but at least it works.

If you give the movie the name "L'amour En Equation I.Q. (1994)", Kodi will find it, and give it the correct name.  For some reason, it is in Fanart with the French name.  I know there is way to fix it in Fanart, but it works.  SMH.

In the scraper settings, change the "search engine to use" to themoviedb.org.

Make sure you make the change on the source folder (context menu -> change content), not just in the addon settings.
