Default Any way to price track Amazon Video titles?

I want to price track some DMA titles like Mater's Tall Tales, but 3camel will only pick up the rental price not the own price.

Try looking for the ASIN for purchasing the series. On Chrome, you can right click on the page and click View Page Source. Then search for buy movie (or season for TV shows) within the document and you should see the buy HD ASIN. Copy that and put it into 3C and see what you get.

It only works sometimes for me. Some titles work properly for HD, others revert to the SD and some show a rental price Anyone get this to work all the time?

Amazon recently changed the structure of their pages. When viewing the page source I look for the price of the HD season/movie. The associated ASIN is listed before that.

I'm not understanding.

For example, here's Philadelphia in 4k.
https://www.amazon.com/Philadelphia-.../dp/B00OQY86UM

How do I get it in Camel so that it works?

1. Bring up the page on Amazon following that link.
2. Right click on the page and choose view page source (or whatever similar command your browser uses.
3. Hit CTRL-F and look for the phrase "Buy Movie *" where the asterisk would be replaced by SD, HD or UHD - in this case UHD.
4. Hit Enter
5. You should come to text like this:

value="Buy Movie UHD $17.99"
data-quality = 'UHD'
data-asin = 'B00OQY8RPG'

6. Highlight the data-asin value (B00OQY8RPG), copy it and paste it into 3C
7. Which takes you to https://camelcamelcamel.com/Philadel...uct/B00OQY8RPG

Yes, it is a pain, but the ASIN on the URL is not always the ASIN for the edition you want.

Edited to add: I've submitted this title to be added to the database so you can use the price tracker here to let you know when the movie's within an acceptable price range.

P.S. If it's a tv show, you'd want to search for "Buy Season X *" where X is the season number, and * is the desired video quality. You should get to the text you want by the time you type in season.

You're amazing. I don't suppose you already came up with a way to track kindle titles, have you?
