    • Recommendations sort by last added

      I think it would be very handy to get the recommendations sort by last added.

      If I add a few items into my History I can see that none of my first 3 recommendations have been updated but when I retrieve 100 items I can see that some items have been inserted (They seem randomly positioned on the list).

      I think it would be very useful to get the recommendations sorted by last added or maybe getting a timestamp on when were those new items added into the recommendations.

      This way the user will also get the first recommendations regarding…

        Recommendations are calculated on the fly, so there isn’t really a concept of “last added”. At some point we need to overhaul the recommendations to allow for more filtering and sorting, but it is currently too limited to support that unfortunately.

            • 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.

              • 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...

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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

                      • 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.

                        • 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?

                              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.

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                      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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
