Full Version: Web server directory (HTTP) content not added in library

Hi,

I just installed Kodi 17.6 on Android and want to add my music into Kodi.

-> I add a NFS source and import files in the library, this is working.

-> Then I add the network location http://10.0.0.1/kodi/music in Koki as web server (not webdav).
     Kodi find all my files (I can browse them in the "Files" section) but files are not added in the library.

If I ask Kodi one more time to "scan item to library" on the HTTP source, it does it ... but the library is still empty.

How can I import the music of my HTTP server in the library ?

Thanks

you need to paste log and web server info. This should work fine with atleast apache, nginx and lighttpd.
Also remember to use the default way of sharing files with your webserver
I noticed similar behavior when moving from Jarvis to Krypton. HTTP sources would not be added to the music library. I'm sure last time I tried to find a solution I found a post relating to why it didn't add them to library but I can't find it now unfortunately.

Debug logs.

Same files and location. 2 new installs of Kodi.
Is this something that is likely to continue through Leia? I know it's not that much of an issue as file mode still works, but would be nice to have the library still available.
I discovered the same thing. Looked into the code and Kodi specifically does no check "Internet Streams"* for .nfo files and images.

I just submitted a pull request to change this behaviour for "Internet Streams" when they are on the same LAN a Kodi.

*Meaning http, https etc, it seems like any kind of source which you cannot also potentially write to (if that makes sense).
Thanks simonn, I'll have to give the new nightlies another try and see how I get on.
