Adding *only* a particular metadata field (runtime) - jalcaid001 - 2021-01-22

Hi,

I have an odd movie that is scrapped correctly (https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/343864-las-aventuras-de-zipi-y-zape?language=en-US). However, the website does not show runtime. 
Is there a way to and somehow an .nfo file just to add <runtime> information (the rest of information from the API)?  It doesn't seem to be working.

The runtime comes from the video file itself. Kodi will read the stream details as well as the runtime.

But you can force a runtime in an nfo file using <runtime>117</runtime> where 117 = minutes

Ok.. I can see the movie gets associated the exact length of the video  1:36:20. However, when I sort Movies by duration (shortest duration first), that movie shows no time on the right column and it always comes first (next movie I have is just 8:00). Is this a bug?

IF I export the movie to an .nfo file, it generates full metadata, incuding "<runtime>96</runtime>". If I remove the movie from library and I scan it back, then there is no problem (it shows 1:36:20 still, and I can sort the movies by ruation).

To scrap this movie, I need  the .nfo file  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082039/. How can I combine it with "<runtime>96</runtime>"? I tried the following examples, without success:


---
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082039/
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<movie>
    <runtime>96</runtime>
</movie>
-------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<movie>
    <runtime>96</runtime>
    <id>tt0082039</id>
</movie>
