Short explanation how to update the plugins:
* use the "Save as" function of your browser to save the files which you can get with the links above
* replace the old version of the files of your existing installation with the new ones

Sorry, Griffith has no auto update function. The manual steps are necessary.

Cannot get this to work.
What do I save the file type as ? I don't get the option to save as a .py file. Only .txt

The path for the plugins in Ubuntu 12.04 is:
/usr/share/griffith/lib/plugins/movie

Blessed Christmas!

I'm an extreme newbie. I am having the same problem that is being discussed here. I followed the instructions for replacing the plugins, but I could neither delete the old from the folder, nor write the new into the folder. I have 0.13, and the plugins already there seem to be the same as the downloaded ones. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Is you operating system windows?
If so you should use the nightly build:

I think you have to less rights on the file and the folder. You have to use a root account for the replacing step.

Rev 1644 only makes available partial data from IMDB. No director's names, or actors, sinopsys... Anyone for help? Thanks, Pedro
