The Music 'rethink' Thread
#7
I tried some nfo files based on info I could find:

For each song in a Concert/music video folder, example for first song file (which has a matching nfo file):

01. Breathe.mkv
01. Breathe.nfo

Contents of nfo:

<musicvideo>
<title>01. Breathe</title>
<artist>David Gilmour</artist>
<album>Remember That Night</album>
<genre>Progressive Rock</genre>
<runtime>3:20</runtime>
<year>2007</year>
<track>1</track>
<music video/>

Will scan each music file/nfo pair into the Music Video database and all the song files can be accessed from the Kodi Music Video view by Artist, Album, Genre and Year.

So I'm going to write a little app that will auto create all the nfo files for each of my Concert folders and their music files. Then I'll scan them all into the DB.

I can't find how to add the Concert video cover art or fanart to the concert folder. Nothing I've tried seems to work:

If I do this folder structure:

\Music Videos\Artist\ConcertName\(all the song files)

I can add artist thumbnail (folder.jpg) and artist fanart (fanart.jpg) to the Artist folder and that gets displayed in Kodi when scrolling through the music video library. But I can't get any images to appear when looking at the list of artist video concerts/folders. Any ideas?

BTW: The <track/> node in the music file nfo is not used currently by Kodi as the library view of the concert/music video tracks is sorted by title. That's why my example above has the song title prefixed with '01.' - so the concerts songs are in correct sequence for playback. Having said that it might be my Skin. I will check that out tomorrow.
