Synopsis

This is a metadata add-on for Kodi/XBMC which scrapes movie information from Filmweb.pl (a Polish movie database) and fills the missing data using IMDB. It also downloads fanarts from TheMovieDB.

Background

Filmweb's website structure gets updated every once in a while and at a point I got tired of waiting for a new release of smuto's Filmweb add-on included in the official Kodi add-on repository. I decided to write a new add-on from scratch with two main objectives on my mind: extensive commenting and adhering to the KISS principle (wishful thinking...).

I dubbed the project Filmweb+ to avoid confusion with smuto's add-on and allow the two to happily coexist in a single Kodi installation.

Installation

For now, the steps are:

  1. Download the latest version.
  2. In Kodi, navigate to System > Settings > Add-ons > Install from zip file.
  3. Browse for the downloaded zip file and click OK.

Compatibility

All Kodi/XBMC versions starting from XBMC 11 "Eden" are supported.

Disclaimer

Feel free to report any issues with the scraper, though any feature requests will probably remain unheard. The main point of this project was to create a relatively simple scraper for my own personal use, without the intention of creating a full-blown project. I was also hoping the XML file would have some educational value for newbie scraper developers like myself.
