Used AllMyMovies Version:
All My Movies v7.6 Build 1414

Problems:
-IMDB: No import of actors
-IMDB: If director or writer includes an accent (e.g. René) a question mark is displayed. (This problem exists already some time...)

Reproduction:
Search for movie "Les félins"

Result:
No actors imported and director and writer messed up with question marks

Please fix, thanks and regads!

I saw that version 7.7 is available now.

I retested it again, import of actors is working, but second problem with accents still reproducible.

Used AllMyMovies Version: All My Movies v7.7 Build 1418

Thanks!

By the way not only accents are affected, also German umlauts (ä,ü,ö) are not displayed correctly.

Hi again!

It seems to be somehow connected with regional settings, as for us, it works okay. We'll see how to fix it.

Hm, for me it is really annoying. Really a lot of movies are affected. But you are right, the behavior is a little bit strange...

As you can see on the screenshot. All actors are affected, but not the character names, there the umlauts are displayed correctly.

I have the same problem. Spelling errors apears also in comments, studio etc. (ü, ä , ö, ß, ß, é .... will always shown as a questionmark ?).
I have already corrected over 200 entries manually and it cost a lot of time.

In the build before the problem was different, actors names have been shown correctly but the character names has been shown spelling errors.

This problem have been pointed out so many times. Every update the problem becomes a little different (first directors, than actors, than characters...). In the mean time my database has about 2000 mistakes... Hope you really fixed it this time, it's the worst bug of the program.

Keyser soze, we are sorry about that!

We're doing our best but it turned out to be more difficult than we expected.

Hopefully, all the problems will be solved soon.

The problem is partly solved, but not completely!

For me the movie details, and actors are now displayed correctly. But the actor's details still have the same problem. Maybe you forgot to apply the fix also for the actor's details import?

Example:
German actor: Maximilian Schell
His movies:
<b>Die R?uber</b> (2014) <i>(post-production) Mr. Escher</i>
<b>T.M.A.</b> (2009) <i></i>
<b>Schwarze Blumen</b> (2009) <i>Jacob Krinsten</i>
<b>Brothers Bloom</b> (2008) <i>Diamond Dog</i>
<b>Die Rosenk?nigin</b> (2007) <i>(TV Movie) Karl Friedrich Weidemann</i>
<b>Giganten</b> (2007) <i>(TV Series) Albert Einstein - Einstein - Superstar der Wissenschaft (2007) ... Albert Einstein</i>
<b>Der F?rst und das M?dchen</b> (2003-2007) <i>(TV Series) Friedrich F?rst von Thorwald / F?rst Friedrich von Thorwald / F?rst Thorwald - Die S?hne des F?rsten (2007) ... F?rst Thorwald</i>
