TheTVDB API will soon expire

Postby Pernod » Mon Jul 03, 2017 8:42 pm

I've just heard that TheTVDB API that we use will be shutdown in a couple of months. It has been replaced with a new version that will require a full parser rewrite on this side.

Anyone here still use it or cares? Admittedly I use it myself so will likely be updated, or I could just switch to using TMDb parser for TV.

Ok, that's one! Hadn't seen you online for awhile so thought we'd lost you.

Not to hijack and thread or anything but since we're on the subject of TVDB, was a solution ever found to files which contain more than one episode? When you rip digital copies they almost always combine multiple episodes on a disc.
