MDB actors or own if...

I have xml files with movies...
I have actors but only 3-5...

I want to add mdb actors...
OK, no problem i have mdb actors but..

I have only 2/3 movies to matches with iMDB...
so 1/3 movies have no actors at all..

How to edit mdb.config file to keep my actors if
no matches on iMDB?

Thanks :-)

Had a quick look, with this gets most of the shows (55 out of 62), of course you need to adjust results to suit your needs. Anyway is a good point to start. Also don't forget to set you language , i saw slovenian so i set it as such.

Yes but in this case I have both actors (from my xml and also from mdb if matching...)
I want mdb actors and if empty then from my xml file...

Sorry, there is currently no way to do that.

The only way I can think of is with a postprocessor plugin. But that has to be made.
If you have software development skills (in any language that can produce an executable) you can try to make one yourself.
If not and if it is important for you, I can make it for you, but not for free!

Mail me if you want that.

See http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/introducing-postprocess-plugin

hi,
been away for awhile but i just tried this using your original source.xml(renamed to guide.xml below) and seems to work fine for me.
keeps original actors when no mdb match it found and merges/removes duplicates when a match is found.

i used mat8861's mdb_config.xml
the only thing i would change is for the description in mdb.config.xml,change it to just..
'description'
this way your source xml description is always used as you provided.you cant use mdb-description in this case as it wont match exactly with your source description and u will end with both your source and mdb-description in any movies that get imdb match.

if you look at the first program(Razmišljaj kot pes,Think Like a Dog) you will see in the log that no mdb match was found and it used the info from your source.xml.
btw the reason no match was found is on imdb website it has the year as 2020 where your source.xml has 2018.this could also be the reason why other didnt get a match also.

i also noticed that on a few shows its giving a error,this will need to be looked into as to why its happening.

also if you change the tile in mdb config to..
'title'{ ('mdb-productiondate')}

it will keep the original slovenian title even with a mdb match is found which i assume you want.
in screenshot show below i changed the year in source.xml from 2018 to 2020 and changed title setting to above.

Thanks @Blackbear199 to check this @mat8861's line once again...

'actor''mdb-actor'

This is really work but only if you exactly the same actors name...
and here is big problem because my mdb actors have also role names:

Emma Thompson (Fiona Maye)
Stanley Tucci (Jack Maye)
Jason Watkins (Nigel Pauling)
Fionn Whitehead (Adam Henry)
Nikki Amuka-Bird (Amadia Kalu QC)
Ben Chaplin (Kevin Henry)

@mat8861 sorry and thanks...
Jan you made these perfect...probably at beging mdb ini dont
have this role options and this is work excellent...

(3.2.2.5) improved: in mdb .. when actors and mdb-actors are combined, the remove duplicates didn't work correctly
when one of them contained (role=..)
u can find it on git in the evaluation-build folder or if you do a site ini pack update it should be in the same folder in your wg config directory

Strange .. do you get the same defender issue if you use the V3.2.2.5.zip in the evaluation-builds folder in your wg home dir after a siteini-pack update?
b.t.w I will improve it further that it als handles actor with the role specified like Emma Thompson (Fiona Maye)

same win 10 except home instead of enterprise,all the other info is same as yours.
i had no issues downloading and extracting files.
the first time i ran 3.2.2.5 it did give a warning about a unknown app or something like that,just click run anyway and never asked again.i get that now and then from different software i install.

in your source.xml(one u manually created) u have to have them as webgrab would create it.example..
<actor role="Alan Rusbridger">Peter Capaidl</actor>

you cannot use..
<actor>Peter Capaldi (Alan Rusbridger)</actor>

to webgrab when it removes duplicates these are two different name.
to me atleast,jan would know better as i dont know when or how the duplicate removal is done.

I see that you add tag mdb-producer ...
Can you please also add tag mdb-writer

and

allow that *writer* and *producer*
tags have also full function just like:
*title* *sub-title* *desc* *star-rating* *director* *actor* *category* *episode* *icon*

Thanks,
janKO
