Full Version: Adding .ts-video files to library
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Running Kodi 18.1 on windows 10. PVR recordings are stored in .ts files. I know that's a container format.

Somehow, when i move the files to a different video location (included in the library) they are not indexed. Why not?
Are they correctly named??

It took some time to dig into this. Sorry for the delay.

I'm one step further: files aren't scanned. Example: file Noddy, de detective-1145-20190531-NPO 3 HD-1145-20190531.ts. Log reports it failed to scan this file.

Why is that?
@SanderBroek

I don't know until you provide the information described in section 2 of that link.

Noddy, de detective-1145-20190531-NPO 3 HD-1145-20190531.ts

Here's the log: ayamucivas.kodi (paste)
(sorry for leaving that out. I thought there was no need to, cause it was a scanning problem, not a scraping problem).

It includes an attempt to put it right. Named like this:

Folder 'Noddy the detective' (name of the tv show)
Noddy de detective - Uitzending 31-05-2019.ts

I don't understand how it should be named. I'll do some attempts. One is listed above. This file is scanned, but not scraped.
Attempt adding nfo files:

Folder 'Noddy the detective' (name of the tv show)
Noddy de detective - Uitzending 31-05-2019.ts (file)

nfo for tvshow:

<tvshow>
       <title>Noddy de detective</title>
       <originaltitle>Noddy de detective</originaltitle>
       <showtitle>Noddy de detective</showtitle>
</tvshow>

nfo for episode:

<episodedetails>
           <title>Uitzending 31-05-2019</title>
           <originaltitle>Uitzending 31-05-2019</originaltitle>
           <showtitle>Noddy de detective</showtitle>
</episodedetails>

It's adding the tv show now. But no episode.

Last episode was 02/21/2017 it's likely this is a re-broadcast and the episodes don't match up with your scraper.

Kodi would be looking for "Noddy the detective S01E07 the Case of the Little Lost Toy.ts" in the folder called 'Noddy the detective'
