IMDB Parser is great, but...

Postby czetie » Sun Jan 25, 2009 11:19 pm

...there are a few times when I'd look to override whatever search algorithm it is using, either because it is matching the wrong title or not matching at all (e.g. I can't get Wall-E to match any combination of case and punctuation).

For these cases, it would be nice to be able to tell the parser the specific IMDB title entry to go directly to -- either simply the whole URL (e.g. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0910970/) or the title number (tt0910970) and then have he parser do its thing.

I apologize if this already exists and I missed it, or has been discussed elsewhere...



In any case, thanks for incorporating a tremendously useful piece of functionality. I'd just spent several hours playing with unsatisfactory media jukeboxes when I found this update.

You can.

As part of the filename add the IMDB id in brackets like this:

Wall E [tt0910970].avi

and the IMDB parser will get it right every time. Swiss will ignore what is in the brackets when it creates the title etc.
