Hack #13: Getting cover art and attributes from IMDB

with 2 comments

Thanks to chriss all LinuxMCE users can retrieve metadata now not from Amazon only but from IMDB as well. There are two patches: 1 and 2 in the Track which add additional button to the web admin interface and needed logic to get and store info. To communicate with IMDB it uses IMDB PHP library.

In my mind IMDB is more suitable place to get movies or TV shows info then Amazon. Also it gives more reliable rating.
