API Keys
« on: April 03, 2018, 03:27:45 pm »
Hello, back when Elysium was around, it was recommended to put in our own API key to make the addon work better.  I am now using Neptune Rising, Incursion and Placenta as my main goto addons and I am wondering if that advice is still applicable?   Thanks

Yup, if there's a place to enter it, use it! Neptune and Placenta definitely have options for it. Never heard of Incursion.
Alluc is pretty much done and most scrapers are replacing it with pron (not porn misspelled). However, it appears to be a porn site. I registered and got an API key and have entered it in Placenta's settings. It pulled regular movies when I went looking to see what it would do. So far I see no porn showing up but I haven't used it much yet.

I use the Alluc API extensively and have never had an issue with it returning links to porn.  I find it to be an excellent service that returns many links that other scrapers do not find.  There are issues though, it doesn't allow a regex search so it may return incorrect links, ex. if you search on a tv episode like "The Terror S01E03" it may return links to many other S01E03 shows that have "Terror" in the title.  Also, the free version is limited to 200 search returns per day, so if you get 20 returns per search you can only do 10 searches (of course you can get a new API Key and enter it into your plugins).

[edit]
Sorry,  flhthemi, I misunderstood your post.

with Alluc shutting down, it appears that Pron.tv isn't offering the free API, is that correct?

Hmm, I did not know they were shutting down, I had not been to their website in a while.  I still get returns from alluc in Covenant.  It will be interesting to see how long this will last.  But to answer your question:

Quote
Update: 3. March 2018

Today, the alluc search engine has been discontinued.

If you are a subscribed API user, your API-account will remain usable for at least 30 days after receiving this update. Any existing paypal subscriptions have been stopped and will not continue charging you. If you used your alluc account to access the pron.tv API, you can continue doing so for at least 30 days as well. The new owners of pron.tv will keep offering their API at http://api.pron.tv for bulk-plans and at https://accounts.pron.tv/ for free and small plans after the alluc API stops its service.

After 13 years of alluc, we decided to take a break and focus on other projects. Over this last decade alluc served more than one billion unique users in total and we would like to thank all of you for your support over the years!

After going to pron.tv and getting a FREE API I discovered it's the same API key I already had from Alluc. So I think the alluc info will work for pron.tv in addon settings.
