IMDB movie title in regional language ( I want english!!)

IMDB movie title in regional language ( I want english!!)
Hello,
unfortunately I have a new problem since the last few days....now the movie titles are displayed in my language (Italian) but I would like to keep everything in English!! (only the newly added or rescanned movies)

This is probably due to IMDB, which now displays the title in Italian though I choose the US site!!! (this also happens though the browser)

It doesn't really make sense, everything is in English (the whole page on the site) except the movie titles!!! Why are they so stupid!! (IMDB guys)

This is a big problem as browsing with translated titles is a nightmare for me! All my movie knowledge lies with the original titles.

I specified in the properties:
imdb.site=us

But it still picks up the Italian title, with the English description off course!

Does anybody know a way around this please?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.....

YAMJ can only use what's available from IMDb site, and since even your browser is showing
the non-english title, this makes everything a real mess to work with.

YAMJ will probably need to recognize imdb.us and imdb.uk set to always use english titles,
regardless of user's language preference.

Anyone that do hate the crappy unusable IMDB look here is how you change it back to the working look we all love.

if you make an account on IMDB or log in to one you already have.
Go to account setting (click the username) then klick "Update your site preferences"

Then make sure to mark the "Show previous title and name page design (reference view)" box.
And leave everything else unchecked.
There is a chance that you have to remove all IMDB cookies for it to work.
Then the old look should be back.

Also make sure you set "Title display country to" to what you want.
If its set to swedish then the pixar movie Cars will be show the swedish name Bilar.

Set "Title display country" to original and the right name will show up i prefer it to be original.

A link to IMDBs own guide

And last i really like the IMDB fixer greasmonkey script for IMDB and is the only one i use there.
Link for IMDB fixer http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/30896
If you dont know what greasmonkey is there is a mysterious site called google

Hope this will help all here since there seems like no one at all like the new layout Sad

It probably wont help when using a scraper but it sounds like you want to fix the browser page too Wink


I got a tip on another site that there is another way to get the old look back with out log in.
All you have to do is block cookies from IMDB works in ie,firefox,opera,chrome.
But this way you will have the translated movie name (if there are any).
To be able to view the original movie name you need to be logged in.

thanks to grizzly666's post, I was able to confirm that all non-english users wanting
to keep english titles, will have to modify their own IMDb preferences page.
https://secure.imdb.com/register-imdb/siteprefs


Although not sure if YAMJ can still get around that if it's using the API to access the site.

API? Angle

Like it or not, we're going to have to scrape the new page eventually as they will turn off the old site.

I think we're 90%+ there with IMDb's new site, just some anomalies to iron out where they have slightly different layouts for some groups of films.

imdb has every name the movie was called by on the aka.imdb.com site, just a matter of not pulling the current name and letting us pick the regional aka name. the other sites have the popular names from the full aka list

Not sure how long the combined pages will stay looking that way though?

it may not, but if your detecting old vs new and can't decide maybe the combined will be the better page to pull from in that case..

RE: IMDB movie title in regional language ( I want english!!)
Thank you for the info regarding IMDB, I registered and selected the original titles. Is it possible to tell YAMJ to access my preferences with my login data? I couldn't find it in the properties.

Thanks.

I added code to do either old or new page but Oversight IMDB scraping is not as comprehensive as YAMJ's.
