The Movie Database Support


Just wanted to check what I may be doing wrong. Trying to make the same requests with v4 that I was previously able to do via v3 .

Is this the intended behaviour? If so how do we get the same results for v4? I couldn't find anything in the docs

Take the following query for example:

*Using v3: *
- result

    "backdrop_path": null,
    "belongs_to_collection": null,

Hi there,

v4 doesn't have any publicly released movie or TV end points, which is why they haven't been added to the documentation.

Hi Thanks for the response,

So just to be clear on the usage if we want publicly accessible movie data we stick with v3 and if we want only user specific movie data we move over to v4? And if we want both we go with v3 and v4 working in tandem?


Yes, you can certainly use them in tandem. v3 supports using the v4 bearer tokens, so authentication is consistent.
