v4.14.4 IMDb features are back!

January 30th, 2019

Great news! We now have a new and more comprehensive content licensing agreement with IMDb, which means the IMDb features are back in your CLZ Movies app!

  • When adding new movies, it automatically downloads IMDb Ratings and Links again.
  • The IMDb Number field has been replaced with an IMDb URL field. Of course, your existing IMDb numbers have automagically been turned into IMDb URLs.
  • In your movie list, the IMDb Ratings are shown in “IMDb yellow” again 🙂

Because the new IMDb content license is more comprehensive, more IMDb related data and features are coming soon, including:

  • Official cast and crew listings, straight from IMDb.
  • A tool for updating all your IMDb Ratings with fresh ratings from IMDb.

Also new in this version:

  • Fixed: The ‘region’ field was missing in the folder list

v19.0.8: IMDb features are back!

January 28th, 2019

Great news! We now have a new and more comprehensive content licensing agreement with IMDb, which means the IMDb features are back in your Movie Collector software!

IMDb features are back!

  • When adding new movies, it automatically downloads IMDb Ratings and Links again.
  • The IMDb Number field has been replaced with an IMDb URL field. Of course, your existing IMDb numbers have automagically been turned into IMDb URLs.
  • In your movie details panel, the IMDb Ratings are shown in “IMDb yellow” again 🙂

The new IMDb content license is more comprehensive, so more IMDb related data and features are coming soon, including:

  • Official cast and crew listings, straight from IMDb.
  • A tool for updating all your IMDb Ratings with fresh ratings from IMDb.

HOWEVER: Because the new license is also very expensive, we have decided to only deliver IMDb Ratings and Links to users who are on a valid, non-expired Update Plan.

Fixed for 64-bit version: Image scanning and web-cam scanning

Right after the release of v19, we started receiving reports from users that their image scanners would not be found when using the 64-bit version. Other users reported that the web-cam scanning would not work anymore.

A temporary work-around has been to use the 32-bit version of version 19.

In the meantime, our Windows developer Joe has been working hard to get both of these problems resolved and I am happy to report that both have been fixed in today’s version 19.0.8:

  • 64-bit version now uses WIA to connect with image scanners. When acquiring, make sure to select the WIA driver for your scanner, not TWAIN.
  • Scanning barcodes with your webcam scanner is working again.

If you have been using the 32-bit version as a workaround, please switch to the 64-bit version again (this is a choice during installation).

Then, please let us know your findings, is everything working again?
