Hello,

is it possible to store two different movie titles for one movie?

E.g. I would like to store and show the international title (mostly english) by default, but want to store the German title too, so friends can search for the movie by the German title.

Is this possible in some way?

I store *.nfo files for every movie. Is there maybe a tag like <secondarytitle>?

Thank you!

Short answer: No.

You could MAYBE add a second profile and set scraper to location "de" scrape that in german and see if that works, proefiles can have independant libraries from same sources, but idk how you get around the English titles only in source. SO likely no.

Strange. I thought I am not alone with this request and that some people made it possible Smile

Maybe somebody wrote an addon... I hope somebody you knows will write here

As I said, I would manually enter the original and german movie titles in those local nfo files.

The XBMC database has in fact an option for a local title and original title. See: http://kodi.wiki/view/XBMC_databases#movie
I also remember that in a skin I used there was an option to show original or preferred title. Unfortunately I am not sure which skin that was. It might be Hybrid, Aeon Nox or Amber.

The Universal Movie scraper does have a setting to scrape a specific language or use the original title. I do not know whether it actually stores both in the database or just the preffered title. Also, even if it stores both, the search function doesn't seem to find both titles but perhaps another search tool is available that checks all database fields.

That's a scraper option and once our scraped your bound by what's in the library, so I still think you cant have two searchable working titles in dif languages for same movie. Even if its in the nfo that has to be put in a database to be searchable and goes around again. Anyway I doubt this is possible. But tbh I dont care enough to put any time on it.

Did you look at this?:

http://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files/movies

There is a

<originaltitle>Who knows for real</originaltitle>

tag for the name in english for example

Yeah, but that has to be supported by the skin. For instance Aeon MQ5 has an option to show the original title at the top, but having tested that with low list, it doesn't appear to work Sad It might do in a different view though. Other skins probably have a similar option, which would then give you an english title and a german one at the same time.

Searches only work on lib content iirc right? So you cant have to names on the database?

I've not tryed, but you could maybe add your movies twice by creating simlinks of the movie with differents .nfo files ?

My movie.mkv
My movie.nfo
My movie original title.mkv (simlink -> My movie.mkv)
My movie original title.nfo

I use this method to have the same movie in differents directory (example : movies derivated from TV Shows that i would like to find both in Movies and in TV Shows, like Star Trek Movies)
