  3. Episode listing for Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23

    Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23 is missing episodes and the ones that are listed are in the wrong order.

  4. Please give me tvtime API :)

    Plese find a way to get access to TV Time API. They didn't want to give access to me and I wanted to write a tool that sync Trakt with TV Time.
    People requesting it and TV Time refuses :(((
    this could be nice feature because both sides apparently takes data from thetvdb however I see those data often out of sync.

    I think that is a good idea to get a sync working. Unfortunately I don’t have any control over their API or a way to get an API key for you.

  5. Get UpdatedAt Property for a Single Show

    An API that allows you to just get back the DateTimeOffset of when the Information for a show has been updated on Trakt Servers.

    Instead of fetching all updated shows from a Date onwards, or fetching the whole show object, this would save a lot of bandwidth and processing time.

    The show summary endpoints are heavily cached via Cloudflare, so it should be quick to get the extended response with this date.

  6. Every tv show on earth on "new episode list"?

    I keep 2 accts. 1 for the PC and 1 for the TV. My computer acct works fine. My TV one is the one acting up. the TV is running Kodi on an android MBox. both are updated.

    My pc trakt is also on kodi. The only difference between the 2 are the android and win10.

    When I click on "New Episodes" on my PC all my "new" collection tv show episodes pop up. this is what I want.

    On my TV every show on earth appears. Why? how can I fix it? Highly annoying...

    once again. 2 accts. The…

  7. 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

  8. Season poster on the Progress page

    It's awesome that we can use the season poster of the upcoming episode on the Dasboard, but I'm usually using the Progress page, and that would be nice if you could implement the changing option there too.

  9. Fix API access over some well respected VPN IPs challenging with captcha

    Authenticated API request responses from some of the IPs used by privateinternetaccess.com, a well respected and widely used VPN provider, respond with a CloudFlare captcha challenge. This is obviously a problem for APIs which are meant to be accessed by non-humans. Perhaps api.trakt.tv can change something in their CloudFlare configuration?

    It doesn’t look like we can do much with our current plan, we have it setup about as accepting as we can without compromising the security.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

    We don’t currently offer this for performance reasons. Also, the Google+ community has a few discussions and more info on this idea and is a better place for API talk.

  17. 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.

    That API looks to return the correct info when I just tested it. If you are still having issues, please post the full request and response in the Google+ API community.

  18. 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.

    Unfortunately, no plans to support this since it’s not possible to cache this effectively. Each show and movie is individually cached currently.

  19. 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?

  20. 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...

    Not planning this since that would be very complex to handle. It will be better to handle this at the media center plugin level and support multiple logins.
