Hi guys,

The Tmdb for tv shows scraper shows some weird strings instead of the episodes names

This has nothing to do with the API break from a few days ago

It's broken for at least 2 months

This happens only for some languages
Probably this is the reason it passed unnoticed for so long, since for english is ok

Scraping is OK for:

Scraping is NOT OK for:


I'm sorry I could not test all languages I have a very bad internet connection

You can see the printscreens attached

I tested with 2 tv shows, but I have seen this previously with others

A user called kekslieb posted similar problem here:


He says that german is broken for him, but in my test seems ok, so I don't know

Tested with Kodi 15 nigtly buid compiled jun 1 2015 on Windows 7 x64
TMDB TV Show scraper version 1.1.0 (latest as of now)

Thank you
