Win Extra fanart not cycling
#23
I know this is an old thread but my problem is very much related. My extrafanart is not cycling in Aeon Nox: Silvo, Aeon Tajo and of course Estuary. My situation is just a little different.
  • First am preparing my Media Centre for upgrade to v.19 Matrix. I have therefore installed Matrix Beta 2 in a second pc to try things out, see what works and what breaks.
  • Second, the fanart cycles just fine in v.18.9 Leia. I have artwork beef installed in Leia and it stores the extra fanarts in the extrafanart folder. The artwork is organized this way; 
\\moviefolder\extrafanart\fanart1,fanart2,fanart3...
example
\\Ant-man (2015)\extrafanart\fanart1,fanart2,fanart3\fanart4,fanart5,fanart6
  • Now the problem: Matrix doesn't support artwork beef but it supports extrafanart without help, even without advancedsettings.xml. The only caveat is that it does not support fanarts stored in the extrafanart folder, atleast not for me. I have set the artwork to Maximum and KODI loads all local artwork in the movie folder including extra posters and characterarts (thumbs up  to the devs by the way) but ignores whatever is in the extrafanart folder.
  • Solution am looking for: I need to find a way to load extrafanart without help from artwork beef, I can achieve this in 2 ways;
  1. Find another script (addon) that is supported by Matrix to load fanart from the extrafanart folder or,
  2. Move all my artworks from the extrafanart folder to the moviefolder. So that the extrafanart sits in the same folder as the movie and the rest of the artwork.
Something like this;
\\Ant-man (2015)\fanart1,fanart2,fanart3\fanart4,fanart5,fanart6
  • The Challenge: So far I cant find an addon to read the folder and it is likely this kind of feature will not be added to Matrix as the developers are now focused on fixing bugs and not adding new features. I could use Media managers but they also seem to have moved into using extrafanart folder. I am using tinyMediaManager which now creates this folder by default and I can't find a setting to turn it off. I am not ready to re-scan and download all my fanart to the movie folder. I will do it as last resort. KODI 19 scrappers are not downloading artworks to the movie folder and Media managers may be the only solution for future movies.
  • I need your help: Anybody using Matrix now and was using the extranfanart folder in Leia, how have you managed to make the fanarts work in Matrix or how will you do it once you upgrade (RC1 could be out this month, The Matrix is soon becoming a reality Smile )?
