Full Version: How to turn off the Watched flag?

Is there any way to disable the "watched" flag that shows up on the movie lists? I know which movies and TV shows I've watched. I don't need Kodi to tell me that.

You must have either a small movie collection or a photographic memory :-)
The watched flag is kinda embedded in the system. You could also try to remove the relevant code in your Kodi skin.
Or mark them as unwatched after you watch them.

To build on this a little, you can set it up so Kodi never marks stuff as watched.  Technically it doesn't disable the watched function, but it does make it so that it never gets activated.  If you have an advancedsettings.xml file in your kodi user data folder, you can just add this:
xml:

        <video>
                <playcountminimumpercent>101</playcountminimumpercent>
        </video>

If you already have a video section, you can just add the playcountminimumpercent.  If you don't have an advancedsettings.xml at all, this should work:
xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<advancedsettings>
        <video>
                <playcountminimumpercent>101</playcountminimumpercent>
        </video>
</advancedsettings>

Unfortunately this is global for all videos, so you can't mark TV shows or movies as watched.  For my use cases, that's OK with me. The few TV shows I have that I need to mark episodes as watched, I just mark them.
Awesome, I'll try this out. I'm glad that it's global, because I really don't care if things are marked as watched.
