MOODb Downloader


Pressing F7, or selecting 'Online/MOODb Downloader' in the menu will open the 'MOODb Downloader.
The main windows 'Movie title' and 'UPC code' fields are automatically filled in.
The UPC code takes precedence over movie title, which means that if you have entered
an UPC code, that field will get focus. If not, the movie title field will get focus.

If you have focus in the UPC code field, the main search button will say 'Search UPC'.
If you have focus in the movie title field, the main search button will say 'Search title'.
If you have focus in the name field, the main search button will say 'Search name'.

If you want to search using the UPC code, make sure it's entered correctly and
press 'Search UPC'. Note that you can only search MOODb using the UPC code,
since IMDb does not support it.

If you want to search using the movie title, make sure it's entered correctly and
press 'Search title'. You can search both IMDb and MOODb using the movie title.

You can uncheck 'Search IMDb', 'Search MOODb' or 'Search MOOD' if you want fewer results.
Your preferences will be saved between sessions.

When you've pressed search the bottom list will be populated with search results.
Double-click an item or click 'Add' to add this movie to your collection.

If you do a search and the movie is missing in MOODb, you can add it with the [MOODb Administrator].

If the movie title has a small camera besides it, it means there is a movie thumbnail
available for this movie. Like in the following example:



If you want to download thumbnail images you need to register a MOODb user. This is of course FREE.

When adding a movie you might get the following window. (Not necessarily showing the same movie)



YES - will update the movie with the data found online.
NO - will add the movie eventhough it already exist. This will give a duplicate.
CANCEL - will stop action.
