I tried out the last.fm scraper for music videos from here

http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...#pid995041

It indeed finds the video and adds it to the library. But only the artist and track name get scraped. No other info (album, genre, comments). Especially without the album info it breaks my library system.

How do we disable / uninstall this if it no longer works? Running Jarvis Beta 3. Uninstall and Disable are greyed out

Can anyone confirm Music Videos still work in Jarvis version?

I've been testing the new scraper but can't even get Kodi to show the music video feature.

EDIT: here's the scraper with a new API key if anyone wants to test. (untested)

metadata.musicvideos.theaudiodb.com.zip

I only use the "local information only" and music videos work in all Kodi versions through Krypton nightly.

The problem was always that, being the default scraper on a bit of software that 10 million people use caused traffic issues.

All I ask is people sign up on TheAudioDB and start adding YouTube links to your artists and rating their favourite tracks by clicking the "Love" button.

Hi Zag,
this is great news, thank you!!

I just update to Kodi 16 but when importing my Music-Video Library i see no possibility to select ANY Scraper. Could you please provide some guidance how to get this scraper running?

Or do i need to manually install the add-on fom the zip in Post 213 and then import the music video library after that??

Kind Regards,

Hi zag, thanks for the new scraper. It's working well. I somehow could not get music videos from "Guns N' Roses" to be found by the scraper. I checked the spelling, it is the same as in theaudiodb. I'm not home right now, so I can't provide you with a log. Do you happen to have a GnR test file? I could send a log later today or tomorrow.

Here is the log when I try to scan the file "Guns N' Roses - Patience" into my library. I think the interesting part starts at line 1860

Zag, I will post another log in another thread. I noticed that new music videos do not get added to the view "recently added music videos". Can you confirm that? I'm using Jarvis final.

Heres is what the scraper is sending

Code:
http://www.theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/18626d636d76696473706d/searchtrack.php?s=Guns%20N\%27%20Roses&t=Patience

And here is what copy and pasting those artist and title fields from the site which works:

Code:
http://www.theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/18626d636d76696473706d/searchtrack.php?s=Guns%20N%27%20Roses&t=Patience

Basically the extra \ is causing the issue. No idea why though sorry.

All right. I don't know, maybe ask someone from the team? I have some GnR music videos in my collection with no nfo file. So it must have worked in the past somehow. I use nfo files only when the scraper does not find the video.

I have another corner case. I'm afraid it's Chvrches again. I'm trying to scrape the file Chvrches - Clearest Blue.mp4 and do not get a result. Here is the log. Scraping begins at line 1879.

I've been fiddling around with the GnR video. When I rename it from "Guns N' Roses - Patience" to "Guns N Roses - Patience" it works. Seems like the " ' " makes the difference. Here is a log with just "Guns N Roses" as the artist name.

And could you maybe check this thread

http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=262500

and see if you have the same behaviour in recently added music videos view?

Can someone please tell me what scraper to use for Concert video files please? For example Adele at the "Royal Albert Hall" or "Les Miserables 25th Anniversary"...this scraper seems to be just for regular music videos like you'd find on Youtube. Thanks for any help!

Just use themoviedb scraper, it should find all concerts.

Example: Kings of Leon concerts

You can seperate them out from your main library with nodes.

I use themoviedb.org.concerts (thanks to zag).
You just have to compare the tmdb.xml for changes compared to the tmdb.xml in metadata.themoviedb.org. Works like a charm.

I've been using the AudioDB scraper to add my music videos to the Kodi library, and it's been working well for the most part. There seem to be some issues depending on the naming of the artist and track though:

No match on "Florence + The Machine - Seven Devils.mp4" (appears to ignore the plus sign)
No match on "Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know.mp4" (seems to expect the question mark at the end, which can't be in a filename)

Most of the issues I've hit are like this, where there's non-filename-standard punctuation in the track or artist name. Is there anything that can be done about this?
