To search for online metadata, first please make sure that the movie title is correct. Edit it as necessary using the Title box provided on this tab. Once the title is correct, select an online source from the drop list and press Search to start searching. This will download some data, so it may take a few seconds, depending on your Internet connection and the amount of data received for a movie. You can use the left/right buttons < and > to browse through found items, if more than one has been found. To transfer data from this tab to the main file, tick the boxes of items that you wish to transfer and then click the Apply button. This will update the main record, but you may still Cancel the changes, because they are not saved until you have exited using the OK button.


Use the < and > buttons to move between files in the same folder.
