Filmup plugin does not retrieve some movies (filmup fault)

I'm using linux mint 18 Sarah with gcstar version 1.7.1
The problem anyway is present also with linux mint 17.3 rosa and gcstar 1.7.0 and i suppose that it is present in all gcstar version in all platform.

I don't now if this is the right forum, because the problem arise from non standard title strings of some movies in the filmup website, and this is not a real bug; anyway the result is that some movies that are in the filmup database are not retrieved

this are two examples:

http://filmup.leonardo.it/cgi-bin/searc … d&sy=0

http://filmup.leonardo.it/cgi-bin/searc … d&sy=0

as you can see the title format is not the usual

Code:

FilmUP - Scheda:$title

but become

Code:

$title ($year) - FilmUP.com

i solved the problem with an hack.
i changed the line 121 of file /usr/share/gcstar/lib/GCPlugins/GCfilms/GCFilmUP.pm from

Code:

if ($origtext =~ m/FilmUP - Scheda: (.*)/)

to

Code:

if (($origtext =~ m/FilmUP - Scheda: (.*)/)||($origtext =~ m/(.*)FilmUP.com(.*)/))

this way i managed to retrieve the movie card, but the first movie does not show the synopsis (asphalte, or 'il condominio dei cuori infranti' in italian(sigh hmm))
i'm not a programmer so at this point i give up hoping someone could suggest a more proper solution.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
