How test uploads

Wed Feb 08, 2017 5:17 pm

I'm working in a library/tools to work with the site and had the read API endpoints working, now I want to work on the upload features.
I don't found information about a stage/sandbox environment or something like that.
How is the correct way to test uploading subtitles, insert movie hash, etc without break nothing ?
there are some categories, movies I can use to test ?

you can upload your subtitles, when you log in. After that, you can delete your own uploads. It is right, that we can create one movie (imdbid) where all uploads will be regularly deleted together with all data (moviehashes, moviefilenames etc etc)

But when you upload and then delete, it works too.

While uploading under your (separate test) account is a good idea anyway, you might want to create a test movie name, to avoid interference with existing movies and subtitles.

You can create a test movie name here:
The ID (10 digits) you can use instead of a normal IMDb ID.
