A place for developers to advertise their TheTVDB.com enabled app and get help from other developers with the API.

Series ID:

Code: Select all

Series has more specials than episodes so my app is saying the series runtime is 2 mins, when actually the episodes are 30 mins.

All the info is correct individually on tvdb (If you look at the individual episode runtimes)

Any help on correcting it?

The site recently added a flag to specials that lets us mark vital specials, so what is needed is for the site to change the runtime reporting to ignore specials that aren't marked with that flag. I've requested that change in another forum post, but it might help spur things along if more people voice their opinion on the matter.

Aside: a link to the show.
