Artwork Downloader
(2017-06-30, 20:50)Karellen Wrote: @Nsowon,

First place to start is checking your add-on and script versions. You should have these latest versions...

TMDB 3.9.5
TMDB tvshows 1.3.6
TMDB common library 2.16.0

TVDB 1.8.5

Some are found in Settings>System Settings>Add-ons>Manage Dependencies.

If you don't have the above versions, then update them and that might resolve the issues.

I checked all the above addons and they are up to date. But still, Poster and Fanart are missing in GUI menu "manual download". Any hints?

It's not an addon, it's a command line script, but the Texture Cache Maintenance script with mklocal.py will do that. And you can also use it to load other local artwork you may have.

I use it in combination with AD - I manually download my fanart, poster, clearart and logo artwork alongside my movies, but use AD to backfill the same artwork for any older movies that may be missing such artwork (mainly clearart and logos), then run Texture Cache + mklocal.py to convert any new AD remote (http) artwork to local files and then load any new local artwork into the database.

Can you post some screen shots showing the problem...

Post to here... https://imgbb.com/ and provide the links

Also a debug log of you trying to add the artwork

@Karellen

I am using Kodi 17.3 with Skin Aeon MQ7 - 2.0.7.3.

Here are the screen shots...

For every new movie, I first select Solo Mode which will download all the artworks, no issues here. But, when I want to choose different artwork e.g. Poster or Fanart, I select GUI mode as shown below.

GUI mode takes me to this window which allows me to choose different artworks.

As you can see above, the Poster & Fanart listing is removed, it was there before and it was very convenient to choose different artworks, similar to this e.g. Disc Art...

Now the only way to choose different artworks is by going to Movie Information and selecting Choose Artwork...

Hope I could make it clear.

I have the same problem as iMak.
Posters and Fanart cannot be chosen anymore.
It's a good thing that I read it here because I almost made a clean install.
2,600 movies takes a while.
Now waiting for a solution Smile

I think this is what you are after.

Thanks Karellen,

But only does half the job, and not perfectly
Basically it generates a .NFO, which I do not need, then also saves the Poster and Fanart with a filename that includes the Movie name....
Those could be easly fixed with a Batch file to delete the .nfo and rename the JPG

Problem is that it will not update the database and point to the new JPG that was generated .....
Even if I was to delete the full library then re-import it the .nfo still points the Poster and Fanart to the URL and not the newly created files....

I still believe that a new option in Artwork downloader could fix that...
instead of just downloading the highest rated file from a web site.... check if Database entry is a HTTP if yes, download THAT image instead ...

mmmm Thanks Milhouse
This sounds exactly what I was looking for .... I will need to read up on how to run python scripts in Windows.....

thanks again

edit:
I might have missed something... where to I get the mklocal.py file from ?

edit 2:
Nevermind , found it
Same github repo as texturecache.py, it's in the tools folder.

Same issue here, also when i try to use Solo mode or GUI, the extrafanarts are not downloaded.
They won't fix this issue? I'm having this since a month ago...
How come no one is addressing the issues with Artwork Downloader?

I can not replicate your problem. This is a screen shot I have just taken moments ago...

I'm getting the same issue; but I have more info:

It seems that Artwork Downloader in the "GUI mode" described above, will now only find posters that have a Language of "n/a".

If the movie has no posters available with language "n/a", then the Poster option will not be visible at all.

One example: For the movie Logan, choose Select Artwork to Download, Poster; only one poster will be found, and the language type is "n/a".

2nd example: For the movie Hellraiser, do the same thing, but Poster is not an option. Presumably because there are no Hellraiser posters where language = "n/a".

I don't know if this is an issue with Artwork Downloader, or with the artwork sources, but there's definitely an issue.
If anyone knows how to fix it they'll be my hero of the day/month/year

Very strange.

I will do what @poffo316 said and see if I have the same case.
