Download CouchPotato movies via Imdb.com APP
It is also possible to download movies that you have added to your IMDB watchlist. The advantage of this is that you can easily add movies through different devices. For example, if you like using your Android or Iphone phone.
Search for the Imdb app on your phone and install it. Because it’s quite annoying to search your phone on the IMDB website itself.
Before you can use this functionality. You will first have to create an account on imdb.com. Once you’re logged into IMDd.com. Then you see a link Your Wachlist. Click. And then choose Edit List.
Click Change list settingsnow.
Put the tick to Make this list a public list visible to all IMDb Users.
This should otherwise CouchPotato will not work with the IMDb watchlist. Then click Close and then Done.
Now click the orange icon with your right mouse(RSS icon). And copy this link. The link should look something like “http://rss.imdb.com/user/ur35789448/”. There should be no watchlist in the link.
Now go back to your CoucPotato.
Go back to Settings. And then to Automation.
Tick IMDB. And paste the just copied link under URL. And put that check mark on, too.
Now, if you’ve set everything up right. Now everything is downloaded. What you added to your watchlist. This could take a while. Beware! Adding TV series to your watchlist is of no use.
These series will not be downloaded. If you want to download automatic tv series. Then you can do this with SickRage or Sonarr, for example.
