IMDB Movie Plugin - Image Fetcher Change

Would it be possible to modify this plugin to get the high res version of the title image, instead of the tiny thumbnail?

What would need to be done is get the SRC of the Image that is currently being grabbed, and then parse that page for the following:

<link rel="image_src" href="[SAVE THIS IMAGE URL]">

I am going to start trying to fiddle with it, but if someone knew the code better then I perhaps they could help me out smile

Re: IMDB Movie Plugin - Image Fetcher Change

so, I tested this on a few movies and it seems to work

if this is the image url:
http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BM … SY140_.jpg

this is teh associated large image:
http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BM … ._V1._.jpg

I found one of a different size:
http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BM … _SY55_.jpg

I played around with the images a bit, and it is dynamic on the size of the image:

just parse out _SX\d+_SY\d+ and that will give the full size image.
