Release Artist Slideshow addon (with skin and addon integration)
Duets: So I've made a quick & dirty batch program to dump the individual artist fanarts into artist1 · artist2 folders corresponding to the duet artists in my collection (e.g., Willie Nelson · Julio Iglesias - To All the Girls I've Loved Before) ... but it would be nicer (obviously) to have the two (or more) artists singing together in a single image. I've started grabbing these images from image search, and can add them to the artist1 · artist2 folders, but it's quite tedious. Any thoughts on other approaches?

Add-on stops working after a while (after 10 or so songs) ... with Kodi log message:
"script didn't stop in 5 seconds - let's kill it" ... this happens both on PC and on FireTV ... latest Kodi install and generic skin

Hard to tell without enabling debug logging, but per your log
 
Code:
info <general>: Stopping the application...
meaning Kodi got told to exit and so is attempting to terminate any running addons.
 
Code:
script didn't stop in 5 seconds - let's kill it
means Kodi sent an abort to the addon which wasn't caught so Kodi is forcing an abort.  That's normal during the shutdown process.

A full debug log might show why Kodi is exiting, since it doen't sound like that is what you intended.

So the above paste was when Kodi stopped scrolling the images when it hit a Frank Sinatra tune, which has dozens of fanart images ... but it didn't seem to be the same issue I've been seeing on both installs of Kodi (PC & Firetv) ... I tried to replicate the exact previous issue and it didn't happen after 20 or so songs ... So I'll keep at it and see if I can get you another kodi with a debug log AND clear error.

Okay here's a debug log which failed on a Tammy Wynette who had five images that did not "slideshow" ... this was after skipping forward through 20 or so other songs / artists to get to Tammy.

Hope this one is more helpful.

Thanks for your attention.

Here's a debug log from my FireTV installation:

AlbumSlideShow stopped working on Jan & Dean song.

This one uses a different playlist than the PC log above, but pings the same mp3's and same ArtistSlideShow folder.

There's nothing in either of these logs showing any kind of abnormal stop of anything.  There's just info that at some point the fullscreen display is de-inited(i.e. closed).  AS didn't do that.  Can you go in and also enable debug logging in the ArtistSlideshow settings and try again?

I enabled add-on debug and couldn't replicate the error. Sigh!

I'll keep working on it and report back when I find something.

New topic.

It occurs to me that since the image providers match up so well with my music collection that it would be nice to share the artwork that I have collected over the years in return. Years ago I tried to upload images to Fanart and others and just found it too difficult.

Would it be possible to share my images via this add-on? ... the handshake seems to be there.

Of course the providers will have the usual issues: copyright status, artists with same names, etc. But can you imagine the collections that could be possible if all your users could opt in to automatically contribute to this resource?

Thx

No, the addon does not have, nor will it ever have any kind of peer to peer sharing.  What you're describing is a web site where people can submit images and then share them.  That's fanart.tv.  I'm not interested in trying to duplicate that nor do I want to deal with the copyright issues that come with it.

[off-topic] In my country, privately sharing copyrighted material is legal, in most countries it's illegal to share such material publicly. Privately usually means a small group of people excluding the public. Think Facebook private groups but even there it depends on the number of members. I highly doubt that a Kodi built-in peer-to-peer funcionality would be considered private AND such a functionality would instantly put it on the radar of rights holders. [/off-topic]

I managed to replicate the issue on my FireTV with debug enabled. Looks like artistslideshow died when accessing a tune from Professor Longhair.

I used Party Mode and it created some god-awful long lines in the debug log which I had to replace with "LINE DELETED AS TOO LONG FOR HASTEBIN" in order to load the log to HasteBin:

Here's the original log with the god-awful lines:

Thx for your attention to this issue.
