  • Required:  Yes, if your plugin depends on this class
  • Type of Change:  Rework

Public method change


public bool GetActorDetails(IMDBUrl url, bool director, out IMDBActor actor)

changed to

public bool GetActorDetails(IMDBUrl url, out IMDBActor actor)


See the version compatibility article for more information.

This change resulted in an increase of the compatibility version of the MP.DB.Videos subsystem and MP.Plugins.Videos. This means, that if your plugin has an [UsesSubsystem("MP.DB.Videos")] or [UsesSubsystem("MP.Plugins.Videos")] attribute, you need to update your compatibility information. Your unchanged plugin won't install and work anymore on an MP 1.3 installation.

Changing the compatibility information is done in the CompatibleVersion attribute. If your plugin isn't affected by the changes or you update your plugin in a way that keeps it compatible with both MP1.2 and MP1.3, you should keep the minRequiredVersion value at, otherwise you should increase both versions. The new version number should be, which is the version number of the MP1.3 Alpha release.

Please note that if you are affected by this change but don't have the corresponding UsesSubsystem attribute, that's a bug in your plugin too. Please add the UsesSubsystem attribute for the MP.DB.Videos and MP.Plugins.Videos subsystem, and any other subsystem you use, to help improve the user experience in future upgrades.
