IMDB should be on the list to automatically parse like wikipedia etc.
Is that permitted? do they have oembed?
IIRC we used to scrape IMDB until it was pointed out that it was a violation of their TOS so it was removed.
A lot of providers are available via http://embed.ly. However, you’ll have to register to get an api-key. Some of the listed providers have already been added to this plugin, yet not all.
For that one (IMDB) specifically.
Thanks. I guess we have to wait. You should change color of your hair on Halloween.
IMDB should be working at all. URL content fetching seems to work:
I’m still waiting for this onboxing feature. I’m a big movie / tv shows fan and still looking for an onboxing method with rating. Any ideas so far?
Yes, but it does not pick up the photo.
Even the movie title with rating would be fine. But it doesn’t work at all, e.g.:
You just have to add
imdb.com to the onebox domains whitelist site setting.
The rating doesn’t show up as they don’t send that with the schema/embed.
Hmm if this is working now we should add imdb to the default whitelist @techapj.
Yeah it looks like they added open graph support!
