Are you sure its tmm?
I scraped imdb using tmm today and it worked. Some movies seemed not to have a plot at all so i rescraped themoviedb
I scrapr imdb as default since that almost always gives better results

Same issue here, using 2.9.4 on Win10. No plot being scraped on several movies.

Cheers, Carl.

The nightly doesn't work for me as it scrapes plot for every movie like this:

Code:
<plot>It looks like we don't have a Synopsis for this title yet. Be the first to contribute! Just click the "Edit page" button at the bottom of the page or learn more in the Synopsis submission guide.</plot>

I get the storyline instead of plot, by the example:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280707/

I hope you find solutions.
Thanks in advance.

we parse this page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280707/plotsummary
Since there is no synopsis, we'll take the first summary.
Better ideas?

No, never scrape synopsis for plot as it usually contains spoilers and quite lengthy.
IMDb's plot outline is no longer than 239 characters and plot summaries are longer than 239 characters (https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/plot).
You may consider scraping plot outline for plot from either main page or combined page rather than plot summary page.

I think is not picking up sipnosis properly.

Thanks in advance.
