Movie Connect

New: IMDb Rating and Votes are now always up-to-date!

March 27th, 2019

Depending on how much of an IMDb junkie you are, today’s update for Movie Connect could be considered quite a big deal 🙂

As you probably know, we have signed a more comprehensive (and also much more expensive) content licensing agreement with IMDb, which gives us access to more and fresher IMDb data.

Today we’ve released the first new additions for Movie Connect made possible by this new agreement!

New: IMDb Votes data

This field indicates the number of votes on which the IMDb Rating is based. It is a good indication of 1. how popular the movie is and 2. how trustworthy the rating is.

  • The IMDb Votes field is automatically filled in when you Add a Movie from Core.
  • It is also shown in the yellow IMDb box in your movie details panel, right below the logo and rating.
  • The IMDb Votes field is automatically refreshed every day to give you the most up-to-date data.
  • Tip: add the IMDb Votes as a column in your list, so that easily see for all your movies or even sort on it to order your list by the movie’s popularity.

New: IMDb Ratings and Votes are automatically refreshed every day!

The new IMDb content license gives us daily updates of the IMDb Ratings and Votes. This means that every day you automatically get the latest IMDb Rating and Votes data for all your movie entries.

Because the IMDb Rating and Votes now automatically update every day, we’ve removed them from the Cloud and Edit Movie screens as there’s no need to edit them anymore. If you have a movie that you can’t find with the Add Movies from Core screen, you can always report it as missing and we’ll add it for you.

Renamed Blu-ray and 4K UHD formats

To conform with the more commonly used naming, we have renamed two formats:

  • “Blu-ray Disc” to just “Blu-ray
  • “Ultra HD Blu-ray” to just “4K UHD

Also, the 4K UHD format now has a new icon!

More tweaks to the Add button in Add Movies from Core

  • The little popup menu now indicates the selected value with a checkmark.

Movie Connect

Better interface for editing movie formats

August 24th, 2015

A few weeks ago, we introduced the ability to assign multiple formats to a movie, for example, Blu-ray AND DVD. However, the user interface for doing so was a bit clunky (and annoying, to be honest).

So fixed that. Here’s our new super-fast UI, just check checkboxes to select the formats:

Enjoy!
