Custom importer for SP Movie Database

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Would it be possible to code a custom importer for Wikipedia, so that it can import info about the actors added to the SP Movie Database?

I know it probably would cost a little to get this working, but would be an amazing tool.
Also, to be able to import movies from iMdB and such sites :)

I wrote my own importer. It works off of The Movie Database API and is legal.

It downloads all movie and celebrity info from the movie database, resizes and saves profile images and cover images (movies & celebrities) to my server, and finally grabs the trailer images from YouTube and sizes them properly (large and small) and saves them to my server. I did add several custom fields to my database to cover information not included in the standard install.

It was quiet a bit of coding; if there is enough interest I would consider writing a Joomla component for it. Right now my code is just stuck in a folder in my root directory so it would require a lot more work to fully integrate it with Joomla. But it works GREAT and has saved me so much time!

Hi,
import from Wikipedia - should be legal,
but import from iMdB- is not, it's against law, because it's commercial database.

Yes, will probably search the net to find someone capable :) Just thought it would be great if you guys could do it, since you already made the Movie DB plugin :)

Happy to hear it.

Am I right ? :D
