Hi and welcome to the continued cdART Manager thread! (Click for the old one)

Almost exactly one year after publishing my first fix for giftie's famous cdART Manager it has suddenly made it to the official Kodi repo.
I'm not a professional python coder but backed by quite a few years of software development I'm doing my best to continue development of this script.

cdART Manager enriches your music collection with several types of fanart provided by fanart.tv.


News
- available again for the latest versions of Kodi


Wiki / FAQ
will be filled soon


Current Version
4.2.0 - available through official repo


Current Beta
This is open source, I'm happy if someone likes to participate development.
Available on github, check instructions and hints before attempting to install.



All artwork is powered by fanart.tv, consider contributing artwork if you can.

How many entries of each type are shown in the bottom line? Can you upload a log to pastebin.com?

You need to set the path in eminence or it's a skin issue

A few years ago, I was successfully able to get this program to work, but now I have tried everything and nothing seems to make the program recognize and download cd & artist artwork? My files are tagged and scanned into the library. My folders are setup correctly, and my setting are according to the authors specifications, but still no progress? It seems like its only a minor issue, but nerve racking at the same time. I'm willing to upload a log file if its more complicated than a simple answer from a helpful person in this forum? Let me say, thank you in advanced if anyone can tackle my issue.

Usually it should work if everything is correct... but it's never that easy Wink
How many entries are shown in the bottom line after startup?
If you can upload your log to pastebin or so we'll usually find the problem.

Well.. At the startup of kodi it shows --- 119 artist,78 albums and 1358 tracks, under the music menu, but after 100 times trying to update and refresh the database in the cdart manager it does not register any entries? I'll try to upload that log asap. I might have trouble with that as well :-) been awhile. But thank you again. Imma give it a try.

Is there a possibility to add support for gif files? Today, koi 16 enables movie wallpapers gif format.

Artwork is retrieved from fanart.tv and I haven't heard anything about gif's from that direction yet.
But yes, if they would provide gifs and Kodi would display gifs for whatever reason (256 colour but animated?)... it could be implemented.

@ethricsoul
So there's something seriously wrong with your scripts database. According to the logfile cdART Manager therefore tries to delete it but fails.
Could you try to exit Kodi and delete or rename this file:
"l_cdart.db" in the folder "C:\Users\Kevin\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\addon_data\script.cdartmanager\" and retry building the database.
If it doesn't work, exit Kodi again and rename the folder to
"C:\Users\Kevin\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\addon_data\script.cdartmanager_" (you'll have to configure the script again afterwards) and try again.
