Unfortunately Netflix broke it. I wrote a barebones replacement that does work for saving ratings to CSV, but it does require a little cut-and-paste. My script has few features, but it's easy to maintain.
This script no longer works with the current Netflix site and it hasn't been updated in over a year. The DVD ratings are now at "http://dvd.netflix.com/MoviesYouveSeen", but it still doesn't do anything when I added that URL to the Included Pages for this script.
Getting the error message "Could not extract ratings; please contact the author of this script" when I run it on Firfox 6.01.
I love this script, the new version (1.15) works for me and I was able to pull my ratings today (9/24/11).
I have over 500 ratings on Netflix, and I consider those ratings my content. With this script, I can take control of that content.
RIP Netflix 2011.
Turns out I have no life and so have accumulated over 1200 Netflix ratings. At any rate now I have successfully extracted this valuable data from Netflix. Worked like a charm, my first userscript to do so.
It's great to know my ratings are now safe and whenever I choose to put them elsewhere I won't have to remember thousands of entries.
This script worked perfectly and in its latest update (1.15) it seemed a hell of a lot faster and didn't completely lock-up Firefox for several minutes in the way it has in the past. I'm also on an older PC than I was last time I used this!
The developer is also quick to update every time Netflix's bored web developers decide something needs to be moved or changed for no good reason what-so-ever.
Thanks for the hard work, Maarten, it's greatly appreciated!
P.S. Has anybody else realized that not only will the selection of movies be split in this new move by Netflix but also your ratings will and thus the effectiveness of the recommendations and projected ratings will be cut in half.
To quote the miss-manager himself -- "ouch".
I'm another Netflix customer that is leaving due to their constant price hikes ($2 for Blu Ray, which was fine, now its an extra $8 to continue having the streaming/1 disk at a time combo).
Found this via Google search. There's other bogus tools found via Google like "savemyratings.com" that redirects you to LikeMinds, which has no option to transfer your info.
Having said that, installed the script, followed the instructions at the bottom of the page. Rebooted Chrome, went to my ratings page, scrolled down, and ran the script.
Exported 14 ratings, I tried this 3 times. 3 separate methods (unchecked all boxes except 5 stars, then just 3 stars, then Not Interested etc). I even checked off the ID & Genre to just leave the plain Title & Rating to no avail.
To summarize: It output 14 reviews. To clarify, only the ID & Review. The Title & Genre did not export.
I hope this can be fixed soon, because I am so over them at this point. For those interested BlockBuster is doing a Netflix promo. blockbuster.com/helloblockbuster. Personally this works out since I am doing away with my Gamefly & Netflix account to continue saving.
Overall though, great tool, definitely see potential for it.
Additional Info for the coder should it help:
Mac OS X 10.7.1
Chrome 14.0.835.126 beta
PS: I did check your to-do list, and did see the granular fix, which might account for some of my ratings, but still believe it should've pulled more than 14 ratings.
Ever since Netflix axed the Friends feature which I used for comparing ratings with other profiles, I looked for an alternative.
This script does the job, with the added benefit of backing up your ratings.
I no longer have to go to each page, and file save as it in Firefox.
Saves me alot of time.
This is a great script that works very well, and it not only lets you export all your movie ratings from Netflix but also can pull info about each movie from IMDB and include it with the data from Netflix. This allows for backups of all your ratings and you can put everything into a spreadsheet so you can sort and analyze what movies you have watched. It's very interesting to be able to chart and breakdown all the movies you have seen by year/director/category/etc.
