The Movie Database

The Movie Database (TMDB) is an editable database of films, and alternative to imdb with an apparently easier to use API, so is preferred by a site I use called Letterboxd.


Adding Videos from Vimeo

When adding a video to a film entry (for example a trailer), instead of adding the video's URL you add what they call a video key. For Youtube thisis in the URL, so it's easy to find, but to find it for Vimeo you have to:

  1. Click on the 'Share Video' button
  2. Look through the code in the 'Embed' section, for example:
    • <iframe src="" width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen></iframe>
      <p><a href="">BLACK MAN&#039;S HOUSES</a> from <a href="">Ronin Films</a> on <a href="">Vimeo</a>.</p>
  3. Find the URL with the nine-digit sequence, and use the numbers from that:
