Movie scrape dialog.

The Movie scrape dialog with checkboxes for each data point you want to load (e.g. title, images, etc.)

Note

You may wonder why some images are loaded in a different language than the one you’ve selected for your scraper in MediaElch’s settings.

This happens because not all images are actually loaded from the selected scraper. Many are loaded from fanart.tv. If this happens to you, make sure you have set the same language for fanart.tv as for your selected scraper.

Movie Sets

If you have movies that belong to a set, e.g. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” which belongs to the Harry Potter Set/Franchise, they are listed here.

Movie Filter

MediaElch can filter movies by name, genre and some other fields. If the text matches a genre, you can select the “Genre” filter.
