TheTVDB v4 (Movies) is a new movie scraper developed by TheTVDB Team. It is written in Python and accesses v4 of TheTVDB API.
TheTVDB v4 scraper accesses the following site to scrape your movies:
- TheTVDB - for metadata and artwork
This is the only scraper that can scrape Movies at TheTVDB site.
Scraper settings can be adjusted in two locations, each location having a different result. When adjusting the settings be mindful of where:
- Settings>Add-ons>Information Providers>Movies
- Scrapers are installed with default settings. Adjusting settings in this location sets the new default settings for your scraper. From this point on any source you change to use this scraper will use the new default settings. Existing sources are not changed
- If an existing source is already using this scraper, and you would like the new settings to take effect, change the source to use another scraper, save and answer no to updating the library. Then change the scraper back and the new default settings will be loaded for the source. Alternatively, use the next method.
- Videos>Files>Source>Context Menu>Change Source>Settings
- Changing settings at the source will affect that source only.
Note: Changing scraper settings does not change the metadata or artwork already in your library. Only items scraped after the setting changes will be affected.
- Set which language of metadata to scrape
- Preferred content rating country
- Set which country's Content Certification system to use (MPAA)
