The Movie Database Support

Hi ,

I was just testing a small get api with a combination of query parameters as shown below . I do see that for the resultant api response for the given combination of query parameters is not working as expected.

eg: the below api request is trying to fetch the details based on vote_count.gte>5 and other parameters with a sort_by=vote_average.desc, however the api response is showing the details of vote_count from 3 onwards.

This issue is majorly coming whenever a sort_by query parameters is used, else the api retrieves the rite set of data. This is a small issue , might not be of much relevance , but i thought of letting the api community know about it.

Note: Enter a valid api key in the below request.

Api Request : https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=123&vote_average.gte>7&page=3&vote_count.gte>5&sort_by=vote_average.desc

Part of the api response is:

{
    "page": 3,
    "total_results": 10000,
    "total_pages": 500,
    "results": [
        {
            "popularity": 1.3,
            "id": 500424,
            "video": false,
            "vote_count": 3,
            "vote_average": 10,
    ...
}

It doesn't look like that's a valid discover request. What are the results of this? Still seeing the vote_count.gte / vote_average.gte filters not working?

Hi Travis ,

Thank you for the response. I have seen that vote_count.gte&vote_average.gte filters are not giving the right result set . Could you verify once .., pls find my api details:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=test123&vote_average.gte>7&page=3&vote_count.gte>5

As per my understanding , Below result shows a vote_count:3 , this record shouldnt have come in the response when we use an "AND" combination in the query parameters [ote_average.gte>7&page=3&vote_count.gte>5] . The below result is expected when we do an OR combination on the query parameters . Please let me know if i am missing anything or if my understading is not rite.

Hi @vishwa2,

You're not using the right syntax for the query parameters. HTTP doesn't understand < or >. Instead of using >, you need to use =.

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=###&vote_average.gte=7&page=3&vote_count.gte=5

ahh , got you.. thanks for the clarification and quick response.
