The Movie Database Support

Hello, I am working on a simple hobby app allowing users to create their movie lists and share them. The question I have is - Is it legal to download the TMDB content for local usage? If so, is there a way to download it as opposed to doing so over the API? Thank you.

Hi,

Is it legal to download the TMDB content for local usage.

AFAIK it is legal as long as you meet TMDB attribution requirements, which you can find here and here.

If so, is there a way to download it as opposed to doing so over the API?

You have to use API. The easiest way is to download daily export files and then download all needed data for valid movie IDs using movie API method with "&append_to_response" parameter.
