The Movie Database Support

HI I'm quite new to this API, Currently I'm using an R package to retrieve certain movies ( particularly the discover_movie etc) . I've read some q&A about retrieving a complete data dump of the movies in terms of iteration. I was planning to go for a GET & POST request type ( maybe will be much better. But I can only seem to access about 20 samples. To be honest I'm quite confused about iteration and finding keyword id's . So any help would be much appreciated :)

Sincerely CE

Hi @advance84.

You are correct, we return 20 items per page. These items are returned in the results field, which is an array. When you get this array, you need to iterate over each item (making a HTTP request) for each item's get info method. This part of the process is outlined here.
