How to use your own API Key for TMDB

Post by MXMG » Sat Jan 28, 2012 1:32 am

Movie Nfo Creator Final uses the TMDB API to generate the Movie Information. The TMDB API has some limitation for individuals, even for Movie Nfo Creator Final. By limitaions I meant that there are specific intervals for the movie information provided by them. So since Movie NFO Creator is downloaded and used by a lot of people, sometimes it get's the "Error 503-Service unavailable". So I suggest you to Get your Own TMDB API Key, which is free and will allow you to use the program without any problem. It's easy to get your own API KEY and also to put it into the Movie Nfo Creator Final. Follow this guide, and use the Movie Nfo Creator Final without any hassle.

1. First, you must Signup at TMDB, which is free and very quick.

2. Fill in your details and Click Submit.

3. You'll recive a Confirmation E-Mail to the email address you provided. Click the link in the email and verfiy your account.

4. Now login to the TMDB using the account details.

5. Go to , Account Details Tab.

6. Just above the "Update My account", there is a link to "Generate API key".

7. After clicking the Link, as seen in the above image, gives you the Terms of Use.
In the bottom of the page, click "ACCEPT"

8. It opens a new Window.

9. Provide the details. And click "Submit".

10. You get the page that says you to wait for the API Key. Wait for it.

11. You recieve the API Key by email. It usually takes around a few mintues, or a few hours. Depends on the TMDB Team.

12. After you recieve the API Key, copy it.

13. Open "Movie Nfo Creator Final" and go to the "About" tab .

14. Just above the LuJoSoft Logo, you find the Blank Box to paste your API Key. Paste it and click "Change Api Key".

15. Voila! Now you have your own API Key, which makes it easier and convinient for you.

I see this post is very old but very well written. Superl, do you feel in light off all the changes that have been made in nfo movie creator that having your own API key is still a good idea?

Thanks,
Dirk

The limits of the api is currently rate limit requests to 30 requests every 10 seconds.

So imagine 50 users using it at the same time.

I know the general purpose of an API key but do have a couple of questions.

I've added data, mostly image posters to TMDb. They show as available on TMDb right away but They don't seem to ever come into the nfo Movie Creator program. This far none at all. I just entered another at TMDb for "American Greed" there would then show 2 of them if it works for you.

I don't know if my API key is the problem, like needing updating or if it gets updated automatically or doesn't change.

My other API key question relates to nfo Movie Creator. Can more than 1 individual API Key be used in nfo Movie Creator? If So, how would I tell it to use one key over the other?

Thanks,
Dirk

Are you sure you enter the right size for the poster, check on their site for rule or dimension, also it's not a good ideal to enter duplicate because they get removed, check in their forum

You can only have one API key at the time, API key are only a password to access the info from the site, so no need to have more then one

Yes, everything met their standards in both size and that it was not a duplicated image. It seems to be a "time" thing. When I entered an entire show with posters the program got the data immediately, when I just added another poster to TMBd it seems to take from a couple of days to a week to show up. So bottom line it's just a waiting thing from what I've discovered thus far.

But, As always Thanks for the input and the API data.

Dirk
