Movie Web Services
 
Hi Guys,
I'm doing this movie website project for school and I am in a bit of a problem. I want to use a web service for a movie information to fill out automatically but I encountered a problem with the only reliable movie web service I found which is Trynt IMDB Web service.(sorry seems I cannot post link don't know why)
Well First of all the second part of this service stays blank when i try to retrieve information from their own website, I don't know if you guys can see the info.

Well yesterday I tried adding this link as web reference to my ASP.NET(C#) website but there seems to be something wrong.

Do you have any suggestions please? or do you know of any other service I can use?

Info which I need is: Movie ID,Release date, Short Description,Picture Url and Genre.

ThankYou very much for your help=)

what do you mean by second part of the service?

I mean this part:
"Search by ID or URL" Request parameters

The 2nd version though since the 1st version works fine, but they claim the second gives you more info.

For you, it didn't work from the site itself?

I tried for the movie "Elizabeth" and I got the below xml result.
Code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<trynt>
  <movie-imdb>
    <search>elizabeth</search>
    <matched-id>tt0127536</matched-id>
    <matched-url>http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0127536/</matched-url>
    <matched-title>Elizabeth (1998)</matched-title>
    <data>
      <movie-id>
        <data>
          <id>tt0414055</id>
          <score>1</score>
        </data>
        <data>
          <id>tt0127536</id>
          <score>1</score>
        </data>
      </movie-id>
      <movie-title>
        <data>
          <id>Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)</id>
          <score>1</score>
        </data>
        <data>
          <id>Elizabeth (1998)</id>
          <score>1</score>
        </data>
      </movie-title>
      <source-id>4</source-id>
    </data>
  </movie-imdb>

Yes but that's the first part, now you have to insert the Movie ID in the form underneath this.. and that's where the browser stays blank

Re: Movie Web Services
 
OK.
So you mean "Search by ID or URL" doesn't work while "Search by Title" works.

Let me try....

Yes, it didn't.
The example on the page also does not produce any result.

Some problem with service.

Put your query in the contact form for that site.

Re: Movie Web Services
 
yes i already did months ago, Do you maybe have an idea of how i can use the service, at least the first part? because when i try to add it as web reference it doesn't seem to find any methods

This is probably a dumb question, but if I have a website that uses a form to send data to a aspx file where do I put the web site? Do I put the entire thing in the main htdocs directory and just the aspx file in the asp.net directory or put the entire web site directory in the asp.net directory.
