Photo parsing limit - EventPhotoMan - 2019-02-01

When I want to display photos in random order (all my family photos from many years)

Kodi starts parsing the harddrive, then craps out.

What the maximum number of files it can parse for random slideshow?

It works well when I choose a smaller sub directory.

Moved to pictures forum.

It might help if you provide a Debug Log which captures when Kodi "craps out'

You can also let us figuring that out. Smile

Omg, my new kwilt device, it not that easy to retrieve the log file. I currently have to use ADB to install. Copying file requires ADB also.

So it’s not the easiest with the Kwilt.

I wish there was an easier way.

Can you remotely connect to this device if the port is forwarded?

To much of a learning curve for me.

Most of my devices are windows 10.

What about a FTP into the device?

Install the Kodi Logfile Uploader. (wiki) and use it to upload the log, and provide the address to the log.

Is there any way to limit the videos to 30 sec then move on?

In a slide show I don’t want my whole family video to play, just a clip, them move on.

Also is there a way to have an overlay show the date the picture was taken? During a slip show.

There is no such functionality in Kodi at this time.

Did you see the post before you by Karellen about the Logfile Uploader add-on?


RE: Photo parsing limit - EventPhotoMan - 2019-02-05

So I tried starting a slide show again today.

It crashed again. And the Kodi app needs to be started again. That needs the log file is started over. Any suggestions on reading the older log file?


RE: Photo parsing limit - ronie - 2019-02-05

go the the addon settings of the kodi logfile uploader and tick the option to post the old logfile.

Done Thank you very much!
But the Kodi app crashed again tonight.
So Re starting starts anew log I believe.
How can I forward the old log?

ronie explained that in the previous post. Enable that setting in the add-on settings for that add-on. Then upload the first log, then you will be asked to upload the 'Old log". Answer yes, and provide the address here.


RE: Photo parsing limit - EventPhotoMan - 2019-02-06

Thank you very much!

Can anyone explain what Kodi does when I select a slide in random sequence?

How long should it take to parse 113k photos and videos before is begins to display them?


RE: Photo parsing limit - EventPhotoMan - 2019-02-07

Somehow I got Kodi to update my library.

This is going to take forever. Five minutes in and it’s still at 0 percent.

What I’m seeing thou....

With windows 10, subdirectories that begins with a “.” Are hidden and not parsed.

Why does Kodi parse it?

I found the option to exempt the sub-directory from the parse, adding to library.

To go through all my media, this will take me forever. There must be a way to automatically not include file beginning with “.”
