Quoting Rifter:
Quote:
Why are you people so obsessed with using IMDB?  We can't use ANY of the data from it anyway, so what's the point of trying to add something that links to it?

Copied & shortened from here.

Quoting myself:
Quote:
To be honest, I don't use the cast function of DVDP at all. If I'm interested in a cast, I go to IMDb. My reasons for that: DVDP only shows those movies that I've got in my collection but when I look up an actor I want to see all his appearences and not only those on movies I own.



PS: Sorry, didn't see that the topic is not new but rather old and was "ressurected".

for anything in notes that I don't want to show... I put in brackets... so it would be <tt#>.... and then of course make sure in options you have notes set to "show notes as html"... or something like that. Don't have my program open at the moment.


Hmm, but you have to have the <imdb> </imdb> tags at either end. The notes show the tt number in the middle. If you put <> either end then you just end up with the tt number in brackets showing.
No biggie but it would be nice for it not to show like the gallery or epguides.

I don't use that script either, but I have the IMDb number in my Notes for different reasons...

I am sure the script can be modified to use a slightly different IMDb number tag, such as "<imdb number=xxxxxxx> which will then not show up in the Notes field (if displayed as HTML).

I was initially too lazy to look for the IMDb window code to make the adjustments. Then I noticed this is actually the thread where it was in

So, here is a new version of the script:
Quote:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
<!--
<DP NAME="HEADER_VARS" Language="JavaScript" Comments="True" IncludeCast="False" IncludeCrew="False">
/**************************************************/
// Open IMDb page for the profile
function imdb() {
var imdbCode="";
if  (DP_Notes.toLowerCase().search("\<imdb\>") >= 0) {
  var imdbStart = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().indexOf("\<imdb\>") + 8;
  var imdbEnd = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().indexOf("\<\/imdb\>");
  var imdbCode = DP_Notes.slice(imdbStart, imdbEnd);
  }
if  (DP_Notes.toLowerCase().search("\<imdb number\=") >= 0) {
  var imdbStart = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().indexOf("\<imdb number\=") + 13;
  var imdbEnd = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().indexOf("\>", imdbStart);
  var imdbCode = DP_Notes.slice(imdbStart, imdbEnd);
  }
if (imdbCode.length == 0) {
  var title = DP_Title;
  var imdbLink =  ("http://www.imdb.com/find?s=tt&q=" + title.replace(/ /g, "+"));
  document.write("You need to add &LT;IMDB&GT;ttXXXXX&LT;/IMDB&GT; or &LT;IMDB number=XXXXX&GT; to your notes for this to work.")
  } else {
  var imdbLink = ("http://www.imdb.com/title/tt" + imdbCode + "/");
  }
  window.location.href= imdbLink;
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY onload="imdb();">
</BODY>
</HTML>

This script will either accept <imdb>ttxxxxxx</imdb> OR <imdb number=xxxxxxx> (without the "tt") in the Notes field. If an empty tag or nothing at all is found, then a Title search is initiated after a short display of a "warning" message.

The second kind of tag will not visible in the Notes field when displayed as HTML. Having both optionally recognized will make transition easy; you can take your time modifying your Notes while still using the window.

Personally I only have an IMDb logo in another window which calls above script when clicking the image. A small adjustment to the script would be necessary, which I can provide upon request.

I like this version a lot, Achim. Thanks.

I figured out how to get this into a sliding window now too. Not sure if that's the technical term, but I was pretty excited by it. (eg. an HTML window that expands and slides out when activated, but slides away when not in use.)

You mean a "tabbed window"? Otherwise you have some explaining to do, as I want to know more...

In case anyone wants an HTML window to just go to IMDb with the standard search (with varying results in terms of accuracy) here's the code for that:

I noticed today that the IMDb tab is no longer working. Well, it does start to load, but then crashes DVD Profiler. While I initially helped create this version, I am no programmer and simply combined existing code until it worked...

I have recently installed to the latest Windows 10 update and that is the only thing I m sure is strongly different since the last time I used the IMDb tab (although, I may actually never have used this within Windows 10 at all).

I understand that Windows 10 uses Edge rather than IE, however, IE is still there (as some people still need it for Active-X, for example) and I am therefore not sure if this could be related at all. And even if, how to fix it.

Anyway, anyone else using this and having issues with this? I wouldn't mind getting the tab, that opens up the IMDb page of a film based in a HTML window right within DVDP, back...

Since a few weeks, Youtube Trailer Window script don't work anymore, only black window, the Youtube Trailer Window with autoplay work fine. Tried with latest 3.9.1 (Build 1657) and 4.0.0 on Win 8.1. If I copy the link http://www.youtube.com/embed/(youtube code) in the browser, FF, Chrome and IE, this will work.

Any advice? Thank you.
