I'm not getting any results when i search, even after putting in my api key.  Not sure why.  Says "Exception while searching" after some time, but no info is in the Exception/Error box.

Thanks for reporting. It seems like a socket timeout (likely SSL-related; exception message should be in the "IMDBfetch-log.txt" file).

The official imdb-api library doesn't expose its sockets, but the exposed classes work for deserialization via JSON.net, so I'm currently doing a hybrid where we have control over the Web/HTTP clients for fetching while using the official classes for program logic :)

I'm home & devoting to it :Thmbsup:

New version!

Download: IMDBfetch_v0.1-ALPHA-202203163.zip

GitHub tag: https://github.com/p.../v0.1-ALPHA202203163

Does "hybrid" fetching. Searches, gets info and image async. Displays raw JSON data on tabs. Only more code for error/exception logging needed.

Getting API usage on start is enabled as well as triggering it via Tools/Get API calls.

It's working now for me.. I think I just misunderstood imdb api key -- i was using their sample api key not the real one.

Why not just use https://www.omdbapi.com/ as it is free.

Awaiting confirmation from Jesse/Mouser to move this from ALPHA to v0.1 branch dedosarriba.png

BTW, "OMDb fetch" is a possibility with 1000 daily uses.

(...no idea about actual users' usage for our PD releases though silbar.gif)

Pledged @ https://github.com/p...blicdomain/omdbfetch :Thmbsup:

IMDBfetch actually has a good async "skeleton"/foundation to be back-ported to BGGfetch and now OMDbFetch  :)
