We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

  1. define a list-type for lists in API

    Currently there is no way to define user lists by type, i.e. TV list or movie list, using the Trakt API

    if the API included this via the call to https://api.trakt.tv/users/id/lists, something like "type": "movie" or "type": "tv" it would make life much easier

  2. VLC plugin

    Simkl (a new player on the tracking market) is in beta now and they have an easy to use plugin that detects a bunch of different media players.

    This single plugin is making me reconsider if Trakt is the place for me. You should really devote some developing power to this (and no the Github stuff you have, that requires a degree in Computer Science, is not enough.

    I'd hate to leave an otherwise great site due to usability like this.

  3. Shows filter by ids array

    It would be nice if we could search by a list of ids instead of a single id.

    Please post a more complete example of what you are proposing in the G+ API group. In general, supporting multiple IDs is not something we plan to support for caching reasons.

  4. Collection API should support "episodes"

    Endpoint /users/USERNAME/collection/episodes isn't working (405)
    According to apiary:
    http://docs.trakt.apiary.io/#reference/users/collection/get-collection
    This method isn't supposed to work.
    There is a workaround (getting shows and expanding the episodes), but this can be done server side

    I’m not sure what the issue is or if this is a feature request for something. If you have more details, please post in the G+ API community including a full request and response.

  5. Add IMDB ID for characters

    In "cast" arrays a "person" is a full object with a name and multiple IDs while a "character" is just a string. It would be nice to get the IMDB ID of a character (ch1234567) when available.

  6. Add Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * header for images returned from API

    This would allow manipulating images in the browser, when loaded directly from the url. My use-case is extracting the major colors from a poster image, to dynamically color my user interface depending on the colors in the loaded poster.

  7. Retrieve your network activity, similar to trending/recommended shows

    It would be nice if we could retrieve your network activity from the API so that we can show what shows/episodes our friends have been watching lately.

    Not planning this for now due to performance reasons. However, I do have a task to look into this more in the future. Also, a better place to discuss is the Google+ API community.

  8. Progress API

    I find it hard to just get the progress per show.
    Especially because the data is available on the site here: http://www.trakt.tv/users/me/progress

    Could it be possible to get this data easily through the api?

  9. The TextQuery search API function is missing data

    I'm using the TextQuery function (http://docs.trakt.apiary.io/#reference/search/text-query/get-text-query-results) to search for an episode. I get a response with data about the episode and associated show, but it's missing two important items that are listed on that API page: "number" (the episode number) and "ids" (structure with trakt and other ids). Perhaps the Apiary documentation is out of date? Or maybe it's simply a bug in the function call.

  10. Use multiple Ids in API call

    It would open a lot of possibilities if the API calls allow multiple ids to fetch data.
    e.g.: https://api-v2launch.trakt.tv/shows/game-of-thrones+30-rock+the-simpsons/progress/watched

    The reason this would be awesome is so that apps like showdates.me are possible.

  11. More control of the level of output for search

    I am struggling between different JSON output between a search and /movies/

    I compare the output of these 2 calls:

    https://api-v2launch.trakt.tv/movies/mucize-2015?extended=full

    AND

    https://api-v2launch.trakt.tv/search?query=mucize&type=movie&year=2015

    In the second case, there is much more information, results are all cluttered with poster, fanart info. How can I do a minimal output?

    I tried
    https://api-v2launch.trakt.tv/search?query=mucize&type=movie&year=2015&extended=min

    but extended does not seem to work with search

    Can you give more control on the level of details returned by the search function?

  12. Improve the watchlist

    When you add a tv show trakt automatically adds every season and episode of that tv show to the watchlist too.

  14. Multiple playlists (for families or multiple users using same system)

    It would be great if you could create multiple collections or playlists e.g. Mine, Kids, Wife etc so using the same login everyone could be catered for, particularly useful for the tv that all the family watches...

  16. A one time netflix ratings import

    I have seen that you have declined importing Netflix ratings due to not wanting to store the password unencrypted in your database, but as someone that has rated over 3500 movies on Netflix, I can't see myself switching to a new rating system without that import functionality.

    What if there was a way where you just imported the ratings one time, then you wouldn't have to store the password. If I want to update my ratings, I just log into to Netflix, you grab the ratings and then it's done.

    I also manage what TV shows on LocateTV.com so it…

  17. it's not possible to distinguish between shows with same name in different countries

    when using flexget trakt_list, trakt will give the wrong series name.
    my setup depends on it.
    for instance: i want to watch Shameless (US) but trakt gives my only shameless and the episodes go to the wrong folder and then also xbmc thinks it's the UK version.
    same thing happens with "The Newsroom" which has an older version and trakt used to give me "The Newsroom (2012)" to distinguish.

    please revert it back. i saw on another post that you said it's cleaner this way. well even searching to the site how am i to distinguish? by cover photo?

    please…

  20. show names no longer include US or the year for shows with duplicate names

    Prior to the switch to trakt 2.0, shows such as The Voice (US) or Parenthood (2010) included the region / year in the title when fetched from a watchlist via the API. Since the 2.0 switch, these shows now simply have their short title (The Voice, Parenthood). For those of us who depend on the show title exposed by the API to organize our collections and drive tools such as flexget, this poses several major issues. First, new shows are now going into the wrong folders, and thus aren't with earlier episodes. Secondly, shows I don't care about (such as…
