Automatic IMDB rating mixin with v4
#1
Information 
see https://www.tinymediamanager.org/blog/imdb-ratings/

Using the official IMDB datasets it is possible to mix in the IMDB ratings into every scrape where an IMDB id is available. The IMDB id is provided by the following scrapers:

The Movie Database (TMDb)
Trakt.tv
MPDb.TV
OFDb.de
Omdbapi.com
Moviemeter.nl
The TVDB

If you just need ratings from IMDB, you no more need to use the universal scrapers.

Great news! One question: With the universal movie scraper there is also a "Top 250" option, will it stop scraping that from IMDB when using the TMDB with preferred IMDB rating set?

when no field is set to be scraped from imdb, imdb will not be scraped..
if you need the top250, then imdb will be scraped just for that

That could mean hours of scraping and parsing depending on your collection size.

v4 now supports, in addition to the automatic mixin, "re-fetch IMDb rating for selected movies" action which updates IMDb ratings & votes almost instantly using IMDb dataset file without scraping the site.

With this, now I don't feel much the need to spend hours for updating Rotten Tomatoes, metascore & top250 (using omdb api) as often as I used to since they don't change much.
