The Movie Database Support

Hi! I use TMDb API in my project and suddenly API stops working. Chrome developer console shows just "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT". This has been going on since yesterday. It is not my app error, because other github projects similar to my doesn't getting TMDb data too. You can see that behavior here: https://nk11dev-movies.herokuapp.com (when you first open data may be cached and all seems OK, but you can see API not fetching data if you try to change page and open the browser console and wait for 1-2 minutes).

As mentioned in that issue: https://www.themoviedb.org/talk/603668c62476f200402f73ca, I test my Example API Request in REST client and have error message "Error: Timeout was reached". I dont't think this is problem with my TMDb key, because, as I mentioned above similar TMDb sites from github can't fetch data too. Can you tell whats happen?

Please help!

Hello,

"Unable to connect to the site. The api.themoviedb.org site does not allow a connection. "

Russia, Tambov region.

The API only works over VPN.

We urgently need to resolve this issue))

TMDB plugin for Kodi don't work. In Russia too frowning_face

assumption: perhaps there are people who are interested in the fact that in Russia users watch films only through Russian providers.

@nk11dev I FOUND A FIX! We (from Russia or other country) can use Cloudflare DNS. 1.1.1.1 And all is work! Yeah!

Did I understand you correctly: i need to configure Cloudflare DNS. 1.1.1. on my PC in the properties of the adapter. If so, what to do with application users. Do not baffle them with this problem. ?

Can confirm. After setting my IPv4 DNS to 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 my TMDB scrapers in Kodi started working again.

How it use for app requests ?

tried Cloudflare dns 1.1.1.1. REquests are not processed (in androidStudio's emulators )

If you are using a PC.
Try it In hosts, you can register any ip address obtained from here
https://dnschecker.org/country/ru/#A/api.themoviedb.org

except these
13.33.240.4
13.33.240.55
13.33.240.129
13.33.240.18
13.225.78.67
13.225.78.8

example :
13.227.73.20 api.themoviedb.org

I tried to register in hosts for anroid, but through the application the request still goes to blocked ip
