Thanks d3ver, if you add scrapping the library for Ireland, you will make me very happy.
Done! along with the rest of the countries. In fact even more countries are being added now to cover a total of 127 countries!

Sweet. Looks great d3ver, thanks for adding those features!

Something to add to your backlog would be listing the languages/subtitled languages.

And I think there's a bug.

Crystal Swan is listed as being in two collections, but according to Mubi it's not in any collections (but it's "Exclusive" to Mubi).
Compare https://mubi.com/films/crystal-swan with https://whatsonmubi.com/film/crystal-swan

Those two collections, in turn, list a number of films that aren't actually part of those collections.
Compare https://mubi.com/specials/syamsul-yusof-on-sinema with https://whatsonmubi.com/collection/486- ... -on-sinema
and https://mubi.com/specials/blood-quantum ... ure-movies with https://whatsonmubi.com/collection/492- ... ure-movies

This is not feasible for now as it requires a LOT more bandwidth to get this information and it would slow down the whole process. Unless I can figure out a more efficient way. Will investigate this some more once I've implemented the more urgent stuff.

That is indeed a bug. I thought special/collection IDs were unique regardless of country, but that doesn't seem to be the case :(.
For Crystal Swan it should be these collections:
Women with movie cameras (ID = 492)
Film festival favorites (ID = 486)

But looks like the movie was found in Malaysia and had different collections there with the same ID, so they were overwritten:
Blood Quantum: Sneak peek at BOO's Creature Movies (ID = 492)
Syamsul Yusof on Sinema (ID = 486)

Will hide collections temporarily until everything is scraped correctly again. Thanks for reporting!

Oh no, that's more countries than available in my VPN-client! :o
Now you might be teasing me with available movies that might not be available to me. That would be terrible!
:P

I've skipped my weekly "check the last 7 additions on MUBI in all countries in my VPN" this week and I started using your site. I don't really plan what to watch. Most of the time I just watch the next movie that will expire on MUBI. So I decided to use your site like that for now. I simply sort by "Expires (arrow up)" and figure out the first movie on that list that I want to watch. The first time I checked everything from the beginning, so it was a bit of work. But now I just continue from the last movie on that list that I watched.

I noticed the order changes a bit. Yesterday the first title that way I came across was Bhumika. Right after that was Va savoir, which I also want to see. Today I see Va savoir listed before Bhumika. Both expire in 6 days, but it made me wonder what the second sorting criteria is.

Actually the reason you've noticed a change is because I scraped everything from scratch yesterday to fix the issue where some library films were being flagged as "now showing", and also a lot more countries have been added. So maybe the films you mentioned were expiring soon until they were found to expire later in other countries...

I'm excited to start working on the watchlist and notifications feature soon!

No worries, just a suggestion, but not essential.

Welp, I was going to cancel my MUBI subscription because I'm now done with all the movies I wanted to watch (that didn't already expire before I had the chance to watch it), and then they give me 30 more free days added to my subscription when I was attempting to cancel it so I guess I'll use MUBI for another month :lol: Out of all the films I watched on the USA's version of MUBI in the past 27~ish days, Boot Polish (1954) is the only film with a chance at being in my top 1000 favorite films list (probably in the 950-1000 range at best) and there are a few other films that would make it to my 500<400 list.

One thing that would be really cool, but I don't know if possible, would be if you could get the info on upcoming films. Some data is definitely on the site on this, e.g. if there's a category like currently there's 'Ida Lupino Double Bill', one of the films is available currently and you can click the label and it'll tell you the other film is coming in 6 days. Are you able to get at that info?

I figured something out for this, will implement soon.

So many movies are only available in Malaysia, which is not included in my VPN. Made me think of another feature: the ability to select and deselect countries. Now you can only check the availability in one country or all countries. I would like to select all the countries in my VPN-client (and preferably save the settings).

Great suggestion, I think this would be best included in the "account features". So hopefully in a few weeks. I'm trying to get the audio+subtitles, hidden content, collections bug, upcoming films implemented ASAP. I'm also improving on the code performance.

Can you please add that to the feedback site? Thank you!

Good suggestion. Keep in mind, though, that most of those movies are not only in Malaysia, but all of Southeast Asia. D3ver just didn't scrape for the same channels in those other countries, though. So if your VPN works for Singapore, or Philippines, or Thailand for example, you'd be able to view those films.

Great helpful site, d3ver. But does anyone has any more clear insight into Mubi's policy about which films will be added to the library, how long they will stay there and such? It seems all pretty random now to me.

Good luck! It's mostly Asian fare on the three extra channels, including a fair amount of popular Bollywood films on the two official Indian lists in the Dekho channel. Only the lesser known films don't have subtitles. The only trouble I've found is that many of the Indian films are from Shemaroo, and you can also watch them on YT on Shemaroo's official channels, but sometimes the runtime is different or there are no subtitles on Shemaroo. So I often doublecheck the runtime to make sure I'm watching the complete version (it's usually the long films more than 2.5 hours that have a discrepancy; sometimes only 5 minutes, other times 20 minutes).

Based on my conversations with their customer support, they curate the films to be shown in each country for 30 days, and often follow themes (hence the specials and collections). In terms of the open library they just started, I don't know about that. Does indeed seem pretty random, but I'm sure it's related to what they can get the rights to.

Isn’t there a search function in the app? I selected a movie using What’s on MUBI, but I can’t find it, because I can’t find a searchbox. (Normally I watch MUBI on a laptop. Browser version has a searchbox)

Nope. App version (at least on Android) doesn't have a search feature. The app is very limited overall. All it has for me is the films on each channel, a downloaded films section, and settings.

The library section is available on the beta version of the android app (you have to explicitly join the beta from the play store to get it), I don't know about other platforms

I thought I had checked most of those countries to see which of them had separate channels, I guess not. I'll rectify this soon.
