Red color usually means missing video.
Could the items in red be multi part movies? If so, check settings on how media companion handles part movies. I think the default setting was changed to reflect Kodi changes.

Hello Rob,

I don't know if you were aware, but since Kodi Krypton, it's possible to save more than one ID for each movie/tv show/episode. Kodi saves (when you do an export) the NFO like this:

<id>tt2245084</id>
<uniqueid type="unknown" default="true">tt2245084</uniqueid>

There is a table named uniqueid that contains all known IDs. At the moment, Kodi saves only one ID per media, also without any specification of the ID source (type is always unknown). Would you consider changing the way NFOs are generated by Media Companion to include this functionality? Maybe something like this:


<id>121361</id>
<uniqueid type="imdb">tt0944947</uniqueid>
<uniqueid type="tmdb">1399</uniqueid>
<uniqueid type="tvdb" default="true">121361</uniqueid>


Where perhaps the default for movies is the IMDb ID, and for TV Shows and Episodes the default is the TVDB ID? I would guess that would provide the most compatibility.

Please let me know. Thanks.

Regards,

Bart

I was not aware of that change. Many nfo functions are still not documented on Kodis wiki.

But, I can add this sort of data to the nfo, as I know we get the IMDB and TVDb Id for TV, and IMDb and TMDb Id for movies.
Hoping to be able to get TMDb id for tv in the future.

Do you have an idea on what data you can download from tmdb for tvshows? i ran the script from Kodi but can't see any unique data.

As far as I know, TMDb serves TV data similar to TVDb, but supports more Anime and other series that TVDb disallows. At this time, Media Companion doesn't scrape TV data from TMDb, but it is an option that will be added to Media Companion as I have time. First to update the TVDb API to V2.

At this time, both Codeplex and Sourceforge are updated together. Once I switch over completely, MC will check Sourceforge.

MC only checks if there is a new version, and if you select to update, takes you to the download page.
Up to you which release, x86 or x64, you decide to download.

MC doesn't update itself......at this time.

At this time, with only one active Dev, MySQL is a while away.
