Hello,

I have kodi installed on Linux Fedora 33 Workstation

Default Kodi version on Fedora 33 (rpmfusion repo) : 19.0-BETA2 (18.9.821)

I have some documentaries and TV film on my personnal video library
and several fanart, poster or photo of actors are not found by Kodi while they are present on TMDB.

The TV film or documentary is found correctly but no fanart, poster or both even if I refresh
video informations. I test refresh again 1 days later same problem.

No problems for cinema movies or TV series. Just for TV film or documentaries.

Example with French documentary : Antartica : sur les traces de l'empereur (2016)

What language are you trying to scrape - French, English, Other?

Whoever added the fanart at TMDB has added it incorrectly and applied the French language, which means you need French set in the scraper to download them. They need to be fixed and set to No Language. If you have an account there, move them to No Language.

Need a Debug Log to help you further.
I've been having fanart problems too but on Windows builds.

You won't get any fanart as someone has incorrectly marked all the fanart as French. Fanart must be marked as No Language to scrape.

As for the poster, I will need a Debug Log which captures you scraping the movie. Delete it from the library first, then rescrape it and post the Debug Log.
Hi Karellen

I have replaced French by "no language" to all fanart on TMDB yesterday
