Can't Scrape Metadata Info after Last MrMC Update

Post by H2O Surfer » 11 Jun 2017, 16:00

Hello,

MrMC was updated on my Amazon Fire TV within the last 10 days. Since then however, it will not scrape title metadata anymore - neither automatically, nor manually. When doing so manually, it says it can't find the title. I was very careful to have the exact name of the movie as it would be recognized by the likes of imdb, tmdb, etc., when performing a manual search, but it still won't find any matches. Also, there's no way to escape the lookup if it can't find a match.

Did the default look-up site get changed? I don't know what it should be if it did, since it worked so flawlessly before the last update. Not sure if this issue is even related to the update, but I use cover art and movie information a lot with MrMC and my local library, and would appreciate any help in resolving this.

Thank you kindly. :)

Some metadata scrapper APIs changed on us. The fix is already in testflight for v3.0.7 and we are waiting to see Siri Remote changes feedback from testers. If it looks like there issues with this, we will pop out v3.0.7 without the Siri Remote changes to get metadata scraping working again.

I had the same issue. Switching from tmdb to the Universal Movie Scraper and rebuilding the metadata seemed to fix it.
