The Movie Database Support

First of all, thank for your work/time.

I'm receiving 0 as runtime for many films when I get the content in spanish but the runtime has been set in English. Why don't use always the same runtime? Other option is, if the runtime is not set, return English's value.

Thank you.

Hi LeiNaD_87,

Ya, this is the one field I've thought about doing this for. I've created a new ticket and will look at it when I have time.

Again, Thank you!!

yes it would be great! I have the same problem!

Are the runtimes really always the same for each language? Film cuts can differ for different locations depending local nuances in different certifications. I'd be wary of forcing this for every film, but perhaps have a mechanism to default it in for those that is missing, but with some sort of indication that it is defaulted.

Plus, are you measuring different versions, directors cut, extended editions, etc?

Hey guys,

Stuart's point is why this was done in the first place but what I was thinking of, was not removing the ability to set multiple runtimes per language but rather make it the only field where I fall back to the en value if it's not set.

With regards to multiple cuts, that's a whole other ball of fun that I will be looking at in the next few months once I'm done the bulk of the TV work. The ticket for that is here.
