Projects / IMDBPHP


ImdbPHP provides an API to the movie information stored at the site. As this and the name suggests, it is primarily targeted at PHP programmers who want to extend their programs or their site with this movie information. The classes must be used in accordance with IMDb's copyright and conditions of use.

    Release Notes: Again, the IMDB site changes broke many things, which should mostly be fixed now. Moreover, Episode search was broken due to incomplete redirect handling in the search class, and some more minor changes and improvements are included with this release.

          Release Notes: Moviepilot code was removed, as the API is no longer supported by Moviepilot. Configuration should now be more user-friendly, as *.ini files can be used; tampering with the IMDBPHP code itself is no longer necessary. A few other minor improvements and code cleanups were accomplished.
