The Movie Database Support


I'm doing a website with the API, and I got all the top rated movies (, it's fine, But I want to put the genres of the movies, and I see that instead of having the names of the genres directly, we have an array of the genres id (example : "genre_ids":[35,18,10749]) I know that I need to use, but is it normal and can someone who already did it, can explain me how to do? Thank you !

There are very few different movie genres (far less than 100). So you can build once a cache id/name using You can use a for that.

Then, you use this cache to get genre name from id.
