V4.0.0 Questions

I downloaded v4.0.0 from GitHub site and updated my old VideoDB installation.  VideoDB seems to be working fine but I have some questions.

1.  Can the size of the Comment field be increased?  Probably an enhancement for later, but I would like the field to permit a longer comment.

2.  Some of my entries have the External Id field set to include the IMDB ID with the leading "tt" characters and some do not and it seems that field now includes "imdb:" as a prefix for the IMDB ID in some of my newer entries.  What should that field contain (I am in the USA if that matters)?  Should include the imdb: prefix with just the seven digit number (no "tt") or does it matter to the logic?  Just curious.

3.  My PDF Export button; bottom of elegant (modern) template, gives an error message:

Character set conversion error

Error converting from utf-8 to iso-8859-1.

Is that error due to some setting I can control or is this a bug in VideoDB?  If that is due to some setting I have control over where & how do I correct that.  I remember converting my videodb database to utf-8 a few years back.

It might be good if someone added some instructions for using the GitHub website.  I notice there is another Release (4.1) but the 4.0 is the one in the Download on the GitHub page.  Should I have gotten version 4.1 instead of 4.0?

Thanks for this wonderful application and continued support.
Jim

Update VideoDB

How do I get the current files for VideoDB?  The Sourceforge page says 
CVS is not maintained.
I have version 3.1.0 and it appears version 4 is current.  In the past I 
used CVS to update my videoDB software - is that still valid or is there 
a new process?    Thanks.

Re: [volkszaehler.org] Enhancement: add support for further Databases (#60)

Hi Justin,

Du scheints ein Problem mit dem Issue zu haben.

so here we have the first issue that omits 90% of possibly useful information:

  • the code USED to work on DBMSs other than mysql
-> Falsch. Wie ich bereits schrieb funktionierte der Code bzgl GroupBy bereits vorher nicht z.B. mit SQlite.
Siehe oben. Wenn Du keine Patches von mir willst sag es einfach. Anderenfalls verzichte bitte darauf einen "Schuldigen" zu suchen. So macht mir jedenfalls die Sache keinen Spass.

do you intend to:

Nochmal. Diesen Support gab es auch ursprünglich nicht. Ich suche Dir auch gerne noch die Codezeilen raus.
  • introduce a NEW abstraction layer to support yet more DBMSs? (i''d not consider that a useful project, given that we support(ed) enough of them as it is (was), and already have performance issues)
Exakt. Andere Projekte nutzen GitHub Issues vom Typ "enhancement" um solche Ideen zu dokumentieren. Damit kann jeder der neu reinkommt schauen was benötigt wird und sich so eines Themas annehmen. Noch einfacher wirds wenn der Maintainer die Issues dafür taggt (Bug, Enhancement, Wontfix etc)...

New GIT repository

Hello all,

I'm planning to move videoDB from SF to GIT. The initial GIT repository 
has already been created at http://github.com/andig/videodb and 
populated with Release 4.0 (most fixes should be in now).

Feel free to start using the GitHub Issue tracker as well as the "pull 
request" functions.

Cheers,
Andreas

output.php bug

Hi there,

I think, output.php is currently broken in CVS. Function out_genres 
creates a new HTML table ($out = '<table class="genreselect">) but it 
never closes it before returning the output. This results in at least 
elegant theme to be broken (edit page looks awful here).

Attached patch should correct the problem.

Cheers
Plotin

OFDBGW problems

Hi there,

I noticed you updated the OFDB engine to use OFDBGW (in CVS). Although 
it's generally a good idea using a WebService rather than parsing the 
pages, OFDBGW does not seem to return consistent data for all movies.

Take for example "Untraceable" (movie ID 137450). On the OFDB website, 
many of the cast members have pictures and all of those have information 
about their role (for example Diane Lane playing Jennifer Marsh, and she 
has a picture). When querying OFDBGW however, the result show as

--snip
<besetzung>
   <person>
     <id/>
     <name>Diane Lane</name>
   </person>
   ...
--snap

which results in her not being given a picture in VideoDB, no 
information about her role and the hyperlink in the details page not 
pointing to OFDB at all.

That's just one example. It's not only with this movie, there are others.

Also, <kurzbeschreibung> is often too short (for example: "Die 
FBI-Agentin Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane), die in der Abteilung für 
Cybercrimes arbeitet und jede Nacht im Internet auf Seiten unterwegs 
ist, die es" for Untraceable). On the OFDB page there is a "mehr" Link 
which points to the long description, that's what would be the "nice to 
have" description.

So maybe it would be a good thing going back to the old way OFDB parsing 
was done. Or otherwise give a hint to the OFDBGW maintainers, that the 
data they are giving out is not complete.

What do you think?

Cheers

Plotin
