The Movie Database Support

I saw the thread from 2014 about this, and the ticket ( but there appears to have been no movement. This would be beneficial to users who otherwise have to write third party scrapers for Kodi / agents for Plex to scrape data18 web content, or the original sites directly. Data18 is often wrong (and can't be edited), and scrapers/agents are constantly breaking due to site changes. If I'm going to manually curate my own database, I would prefer that someone else may be able to benefit from my work by making it available here. However, I don't want to go creating and populating series that can't be filtered out by the adult flag.

Can you give some example of some adult (porn) TV-shows? I noticed that IMDb now lists regular web porn content as TV-shows, but that seems not quite correct.

I can only think of that "The XXX Factor" or something, I saw it on here before somehow. I can't find it right now, but it was some sort of "original series" by a porn site, it was like a talent show, like the X factor, with amateurs, but instead of wanting to be a singer, they wanted to be pornstars.

Oh yeah that was it! I must have confused the title, I see that one is still in the database (although I don't know if it actually qualifies for the Adult setting, but from the look/theme of it, it would)

I believe that is done due to it not really fitting any other means of categorization (if you mean things such as tt4229222), however there are other examples besides web content. As a few examples aside from The Sex Factor:

Something else I've just thought of, there are a fair number of hentai series that would certainly benefit from having this flag, as they are not family friendly material. If anyone more familiar with the subject could provide examples, I'm unfamiliar with it.

With data18 not having updated for over a month, this may be a good time to capitalize ;)

The adult flag on TV was added a couple of weeks ago.

There's no filtering on it yet, but the data can be set. Filtering should be done this week.
