NAME

WebService::MoviePosterDB - OO Perl interface to the movie poster database MoviePosterDB.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use WebService::MoviePosterDB;

    my $ws = WebService::MoviePosterDB->new(api_key => "key", api_secret => "secret", cache => 1, cache_exp => "12h");

    my $movie = $ws->search(type => "Movie", imdbid => "tt0114814", width => 300);

    print $movie->title(), ": \n\n";
    print $movie->page(), "\n\n";

    foreach ( @{$movie->posters()} ) {
        print $_->image_location(), "\n";
    }



DESCRIPTION

WebService::MusicBrainz is an object-oriented interface to MoviePosterDB. It can be used to retrieve artwork for IMDB titles.

METHODS

    new(%opts)

Constructor.

%opts can contain:
api_key, api_secret A key and secret are required to use the API. Contact movieposterdb.com for details.
cache Whether to cache responses. Defaults to true
cache_root The root dir for the cache. Defaults to tmpdir();
cache_exp How long to cache responses for. Defaults to 1h

search(type => ‘‘Movie’’, CW%args)

Accesses MoviePosterDB and returns a WebService::MoviePosterDB::Movie object.

%args can contain:
type Controls the type of resource being requested. Currently only supports Movie.
tconst IMDB id for the title, e.g. tt0114814
imdbid Alias for tconst
title Name of the title
width Image width for returned artwork

NOTES

The version 1 API, previously used by default, stopped as of 2011-09-27, and credentials are required to access the version 2 API. It is possible to access the version 2 API using test credentials (key, secret = demo), and this will be done for legacy applications that try to use the version 1 API. However, this feature is only intended for test purposes: legacy applications should be adapted, and new applications should not use it.
