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 Connect software!

  • When adding new movies, it automatically adds 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.
  • A new “IMDb” option is now available to add as a column to your List View, which shows a nice IMDb logo with rating, linking to the movie page on IMDb.

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.
