 +====== Data Gathering ======
  
 +When [[vdb:​editing]] a movie VideoDB can gather data from external websites. Currently only the following sites are supported in the standard installation:​
 +
 +  * [[http://​www.imdb.com|Internet Movie Database]] (supports all movie information including images)
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com|Amazon]] (allows partial data only but supports images)
 +  * [[http://​www.tvtome.com|TV Tome]] (supports actor and TV series/ episodes information but no images)
 +  * [[http://​images.google.com|Google Images]] (supports images)
 +
 +
 +More external site plugins are planned, suggestions are welcome.
 +
 +
 +===== About plugins =====
 +
 +Code for plugins are in folder **engines/​**
 +did anyone know that imdb engines already update or not?
 +
 +
 +
 +===== IMDB Browser =====
 +
 +This feature is disabled by default! Enable it in the [[vdb:​configuration]] screen to use it.
 +
 +The IMDB Browser integrates the [[http://​www.imdb.com|Internet Movie Database]] directly into VideoDB. When enabled you can access the IMDB website from the menubar. You can use their site as usual, but after every mentioned movie title you'll find a little ''​+''​ button. By pressing this button you can add this movie to your VideoDB. This feature is very useful to fill your wishlist.
