Import from IMDb
It would be nice if there would be a function to import my imdb watchlist into trakt, so I don't have to do all movies manually
TraktRater didn't work. can you suggest alternative program?
TraktRater seems broken since the trakt.tv website update. It cannot login.
I'm happy you're happy.
I can look into custom list import as well for a future version.
You can import your IMDb ratings and watchlist using:
If you're a Windows user, you can use this app:
If you're on Windows use the "IMDB to trakt" from Damien, he just recently updated it: https://github.com/damienhaynes/TraktRater/releases
Hi. can't get your pthon to work.
I always get:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ratings.ratings_movies(traktuser, sha1pass, traktapi)

raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error
But i'm not sure how to enter the arguments: just
"python main.py u myname p mypass a myapiXXX"
or do i habe to use a "=" ?
or just ""python main.py myname mypass myapiXXX"
Can you help me?

I started a Python project for this. Multi-platform import of Watchlist and Ratings is working and I'm open to suggestions for new features. If you export your Watchlist and Ratings in IMDB these scripts will process them for you.
IMDB has no public api nor import for this kind of thing to work really. Getting the data from there to trakt is possible with the tool ltfearme posted and there is a script to import ratings back but no idea if that works: https://github.com/tomzx/imdb-importer/blob/master/README.md.
Keep in mind it's not exactly what you're after i.e. a sync feature but will allow you to at least get what you already have on IMDb over to trakt.tv
You can use this tool if you're on windows:

Extension trakt . tv Everywhere they say.
The problem is that I got to press 'seen' at all the 7 freaking hundreds titles..
Totally agree, would add this, but i'm not the only one who wants this.
I have a watch list with more than 300 in IMDB, i would like to have this list here without having to add all the items 1 by 1.
Synch would be even more better but not an obligation for me.
The import would also be ok for me from the list that I can export from imdb (csv).
or if it could be synced in both ways? If you watchlist a movie on trakt it's also watchlisted on imdb?
An export feature would also be nice. Or some what to make sure they stay in sync.
