The Movie Database Support

hi! I'm creating my website and I would like to use my favorite movies/series and watchlist. But I have to generate a session id for it.

Is there any way to get this things only with my account id? I set to public to the favorite list.

Thanks for the help!

If the list is public, you can use the standard list method without any account id or session id. You can also use either version 3 or 4 of the API. Below are the URLs to get the details of your “ favourite movies” list.

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/list/37456?api_key=XXXX
https://api.themoviedb.org/4/list/37456?api_key=XXXX

And the documentation for these methods:

Hi Tamás,

@Paszt Is correct. A public list can be read with the standard read token or API key.

This question did make me think about making some account content available via HTML embed's though. thinking If you have the ability to write code around the API you might not care about that but I'm sure other people would find it useful. Thanks for reminding me about this. grin

Thanks for the answers! I already created 2 lists named favorite movies / favorite series and it works well. I just thought I can get my favorites because there is an option to set them to public here: https://www.themoviedb.org/settings/sharing

Btw I really like the well documented api and the whole page, just started to play with the endpoints and maybe I'll have more questions/recommendations wink

Ya, account lists aren't publicly available. That's true. They probably should be if they're marked as such, good call. I'll get that added. Here's my ticket for it.

Cheers.
