Same problem. Apparently IMDB changed their main data display page completely yesterday. The Catvids interface with IMDB will have to be completely redone. Among all the other problems when you search in Catvids by the IMDB identifier it links to the name of the first character in the actor/character list and not the title.

I just downloaded the new internet.dll and most of the problems are fixed. Thanks Fredrik. Unfortunately all the major credits on the production side are still missing including director, writer, music, cinematography, costume design, production design and film editor to name a few. I'm no programmer so don't have a clue why they are being missed unless maybe IMDB is naming them differently. Hope you can fix it as these are fields that are frequently searched by.

Please check which Internet.dll you are using. There was release v169 today (12/24).

Thanks Fredrik!

IMDB download seems to be fixed for movie and TV data (I'm getting complete actors and crew) BUT I'm also getting a weird result downloading TV episodes. The total number of episodes in a season is correct but the numbering starts with 2 instead of 1 (i.e., I get the correct 13 episodes for the season but numbering is 1.02 - 1.14, not 1.01 - 1.13). I've tried this on three different series with the same results -- the episode numbers start with 2 instead of 1.

Thanks Doug. It is the version I have and the credits are downloading. Don't know how I missed seeing that installation.

I THINK there was a release (v168) on the 23rd and an additional release (v169) on the 24th.
Fredrik must have missed something...
