Re: [NEW] REST search, JSON results

Is there a way to pass the year field on this new api like on the old one?

Is it really necessary to pass file size and hash together? can I just pass file size?

Thanks.

Hi, it should work same as for xml-rpc SearchSubtitles(). If I am not mistaken, over there is also not allowed using filesize only function, it is because how the indexes in db are made, it is slower than using hash. MovieYear is also not accepted.

Is it possible to perform a search with movie name, hash and file size and have it return everything not just the ones that match file size and hash?

Thanks.

Hi,

you have to search by moviename (1st query) and then hash and filesize (2nd query)

Just to be clear, are you suggesting I make two searches or that I rearrange the search parameters?

For example on this search:

https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/m ... uageid-eng

only gives me results with the exact hash, but this other search fails:

https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/q ... uageid-eng

Hi

the best is to make two separate requests. To be clear:
https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/m ... uageid-eng
is redirecting to
https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/m ... uageid-eng

https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/q ... uageid-eng
is redirecting to
https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/m ... uageid-eng

so as you can see query is totally ignored when there is moviehash and moviebytesize, the best is "sort" parameters in URL as written in first message in this topic.

so 2nd query would be:
https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/q ... uageid-eng

Ok, two separate queries is how we have it implemented now, just wanted to make sure that was ok and there was no better way.

basically, the best is moviehash and size search, if that will bring no desired results, query is the last best option.

Yeah that is exactly how we are doing it, second query if the first was empty. Thanks.

What happens when using both imdbid and hash and bytesize,for example the below sample.
seems that it ignores the imdbid, the result with and without that is same
also episode and season seems useless when using size and hash.

https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/e ... uageid-eng

yeah, thats right. If you search by hash and bytesize the results should be already good enough to have more filtering.

Hi, it works here, try:

Code: Select all

curl -A 'TemporaryUserAgent'  https://rest.opensubtitles.org/search/moviebytesize-750005572/moviehash-319b23c54e9cf314
