multiple thumbs for multi-part episodes - Zaaacharias - 2014-11-16

TMMs support for tv shows with multi-part episodes is great but there's one thing that bothers me.
At the moment TMM ony supports one thumb image for each video file and not one individual thumb for each episode of the file.
e.g. Each video file of Adventure Time contains two episodes. TMM scrapes them as two episodes with different titles and plots but with the same thumb image.
Hope you can add support for multiple thumbs for multi-part episodes in the near future.


RE: multiple thumbs for multi-part episodes - mlaggner - 2014-11-17

technically we could Big Grin
But we built tmm for use with Kodi and iirc for episodes the thumb has to be
<episode file name>-thumb.jpg|png

with a multi episode file you have one problem here: you can't put 2 artworks in 1 file (like the episodes)..


RE: multiple thumbs for multi-part episodes - Zaaacharias - 2014-11-17

I did a little research and found a solution.
Kodi can handle multiple thumbs for multi-part episodes.
All you have to do is not to download the thumb but write the URL of the thumbs in the nfo file.
When Kodi reads the info it downloads the thumbs itself. Works like a charm!
Would be very cool if you could implement this feature!

e.g. the nfo of Alias - S03E01E02.avi should look like this:

Code:
