The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at




After adding a new production company, I've tried to choose Democratic Republic of the Congo in the origin country field, but I couldn't tell the difference between the two Congos that appear in the list. Which should I choose?

Republic of the Congo
ISO_3166-1 = CG = Congo

Democratic Republic of the Congo
ISO_3166-1 = CD = Democratic Republic of the Congo

Already added.

Thanks for adding.

I can only see two "Congo" entries, so I can't tell one from the other. It's easier with the production company field, which shows "Republic of the Congo (Brazzaville)" and "Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasa)".

I'll take a look at why that dropdown isn't using the correct country list. If you look at your account page (just to compare) you'll see that it's showing the two correctly, and the country names are correctly named in our translation file.

Thanks, @travisbell.

I just pushed an update to make sure the same country list is used on all country dropdowns. You should see both listed now. thumbsup_tone2

I think there is an issue with the alternative title fields. I'm trying to add "¿Qué fue de Jorge Sanz? (5 años después)" as an alternative title to this entry, but Spain disappear as soon as I click outside the country field. thinking

Hey @banana_girl, I’ll see what’s going on tomorrow.

@banana_girl Can you give it a go now? I believe alternative titles are back to working.

It worked! Thanks Travis! smiley_cat
