TvTunes - latts9923 - 2019-09-21

I've been granted permission from the Kodi Team to revive the TVTunes add-on.

It is available on my Kodi repo @ https://holybid.com/kodi/lattsrepo/master/repository.lattsrepo.

This version has all the features of the final version released by the previous author. The only difference is that the add-on is now a service instead of a script.

You can test out the newest version at my GitHub repo.

This version has all the features of the final version released by the previous author. The only difference is that the Add-on is now a service instead of a script. I've tested this with Leia and it seems to be working fine.

I've scrubbed the repo's wiki page and removed all references to downloading content. I ask that the Kodi Team verify that everything is good to go and give me a "thumbs up" that it's ready for the official Kodi repo. Thanks in advance!
Thank you very much matey!

I'm working on some things on my test rig before getting it all on my drives for my Shield, will give this a test run Smile


RE: TvTunes - whysoserious - 2019-09-21

@latts9923

Thanks for all the hard work! I've installed the add-on to my LibreELEC 9.X machine (Kodi 19 Alpha1, Milhouse build #909, Aeon Nox 5 SiLVO skin) and it works very well, just like I remember  Big Grin .


RE: TvTunes - Rippoholic - 2019-09-21

Just got round to a test.. working great!


Managed to figure out how to get it to play the theme.ext file whilst browsing movies and tv shows, and loop them too! Looping the theme was something I wanted in a particular skin, but the skinner couldn't implement it, but this addon does it nicely.

I have 1000+ Movies and counting.. I have soundtracks for most tv shows and movies, and now, thanks to you, I'm going to be buying a fair few more Smile

I thoroughly recommend this album by Hans Zimmer for movie collections:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Music-Hans-Zimmer-Definitive-Collection/dp/B00LBMF8QC/ref=tmm_msc_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
There's a few themes from a good number of movies to choose from for use with this addon.

Edit: Ok, clearly, I don't know how to post images here.

Ah, thank you Smile

You're teaching me how to use the forum now too..


RE: TvTunes - Cinephile - 2019-09-22

Great work!

Does that mean TV Melodies is now obsolete? What's the difference?

I've not heard of that one, so I'm not sure.


RE: TVTunes - latts9923 - 2019-09-23

@Rippoholic
You're welcome! Glad it's working for you. Hans Zimmer's music is awesome! That was my dream job in college...soundtrack composer.

@Cinephile
TV Melodies is still a good Add-on to use for playing themes, but TVTunes offers more options and functionality.

You're never to old to follow a dream Wink

Absolutely loving this addon, ripping parts of audio from my movies that I don't have the soundtrack to to use as a theme.mp3 Smile


RE: TvTunes - latts9923 - 2019-09-25

@Rippoholic

I'm actually working on an orchestral piece for an idea I've had in my head for a while.

I'm also working on the TVTunes Screensaver. I'll create a thread for it as well as soon as it's ready.

That's great! Would love to hear it when you've finished it Smile I'm always writing songs, pretty 'raw and lived' kind of songs. I've written poems since I was around 11, sung since 8 and picked up a guitar at 35.. I was inspired and encouraged to start writing again, so it's all come as a bit of passion now. I can't put music to lyrics yet, but I'm working with some people who are helping. Need to learn to sing and play at the same time too, which I'm working on.. it's not pretty Wink

Oh that'll be good. I'll keep my eye out for that. I've tested this addon on a few of my devices now, works like a charm Smile

I am the creator of TV Melodies and if @latts9923 has this up and working then yes there will be no need for TV Melodies as I was just trying to fill the gap where this addon had previously been banned.


RE: TvTunes - bzellinger - 2019-10-05

Thanks for the addon. I use Emby for Kodi. Emby server has a plugin for video themes. The structure is /movie title/backdrops/theme.mp4

The backdrops folder itself and everything inside is hidden. I believe it's setup this way to tell Emby to ignore when scanning the library. 

Is there a way to add this to TVTunes? I tried adding backdrops to the subdirectoy in the settings and didn't work.


RE: TvTunes - scott967 - 2019-10-05

Do you still need Beautifulsoup and Requests modules?

update:

Also, when installed it appears as a "video add-on".  Probably should be a service?  You could remove the video plugin source extension from addon.xml.  You might also consider renaming the addon id to service.tvtunes and adjusting your references.

update2:

I guess I had found an older version on github and see now that it is defined as service.tvtunes so ignore that.
