The Movie Database Support

I see there is an option to create lists and a watch list. Is there a method to use those lists in a way that Trakt does ( Here is why I am asking if it may help answer...

I have been using Trakt to keep track of what I have in my collection and what I have watched. That is about all I use it for, I really have no need or interest in any other things. The problem I have is data integrity there, and a lacking of a way to control the data I enter. The most common issue is duplicate movie entities, where you can report a data duplication, but data ends up lost during the "fix". Without getting into the details, I have seen it first hand lose track of a watched status when the watched mark was placed on a duplicate before it was removed as an example of issues.

I know that Trakt is nothing but a duplication of the data here, which is where the problem is. You can import the data, but when data is changed here, it is not always applied there. It makes me question the need for such a thing vs just going direct, meaning here. I believe all I would need is the availability and code to to sync list data as it is done there, and I could just use TMDB for all and reduce problems. Plus, as you are an open system, access to my data is not an issue here.

Is this something that is already possible, and if not, is this something that could be done?

Hi @thwaller,

I love hearing from users like you about this. There aren't any immediate plans to introduce any tracking features right now but I've been hearing more and more from users like you who are asking for it, so it's becoming more likely. There's a couple big features that are being discussed right now so I'll make sure we give this some thought.


Thanks for the reply. If I can help in any way, let me know. At very least, I can help with testing.

I would love to see this as well :-)
