[Frodo] Some DVD cases have a black frame and most have a orange frame
#1
ronie,

I am using the May monthly build of Frodo Alpha 2. One thing I noticed is that the frame color of the DVD cases are either displayed as orange frames, for most video entries, and others are displayed with a black frame and the word "DVD" in the middle of the top frame. I am using files view mode. How do I make all video entries show the same colored frame?

the skin uses the video resolution info to assign a case.
this info may or may not be available in filemode.

using .nfo files that include resolution info will certainly help in this case.

if things worked correctly for you in eden, i could be a frodo bug though.

Ronie,

Before I ran the May monthly Frodo Alpha 2 I exported my video library to a single file from Eden. I then ran Frodo and imported the single file. I made my corrections in Frodo as I needed to select the thumbnails again due to the caching change that was made to Frodo. After that I exported my video library to a single using Frodo. I delete the Thumbanils, MyVideos.db and Textures.db and once more imported the exported library data just to make sure that all my thumbnail selections were correct. After that I noticed that exactly two DVD cases were black and the rest were orange. The entry is a folder for the movie Coraline and in that folder is two entries, one for a 2D version of the movie and another for the 3D version of the movie. The parent has a orange folder, the 2D and 3D both have black DVD cases.

This picture shows the parent with a orange case:

This picture shows the 2D entries with a black case:

Here is the info from the videodb.xml export file:

There does seem to be resolution info for Coraline 2D in the exported data:
Code:
<fileinfo>
            <streamdetails>
                <video>
                    <codec>mpeg2video</codec>
                    <aspect>1.777083</aspect>
                    <width>720</width>
                    <height>480</height>
                    <durationinseconds>6032</durationinseconds>
                </video>

Looking at this more it appears that Coraline has the correct black DVD case. The ones with the orange DVD cases are the ones that I am confused about. Under those video entries that are tagged as "DVD video" such as :
Image

Looking at the entry in the videodb.xml exported data, there appears to be no resolution information specified for "9". Even though, I see that it is tagged as "DVD video" in the above picture. So my question is, if the skin knows it is a "DVD video" then why does it not use a black DVD case?

Just noticed something interesting in the exported data:
Code:
.
        <lastplayed>1969-12-31</lastplayed>
        <premiered>1969-12-31</premiered>
        <aired>1969-12-31</aired>

Interesting default values.

since the parent folder does not contain a movie file, the skin can not show either a dvd case or a bluray case.
when this happens, the skin will fall back to the generic orange case.

Ronie,

I added more information after you responded. I did not see your response before I made my changes. See my updates above.

I think I know the answer to this. I do not see a "480" or "1080" icon displayed so it defaults to using the orange DVD case. This now tells me that I need to add video resolution information either by rescanning all the video entries again or editing the videodb.xml export file. Bummer either way.

Ronie,

How do I go about getting the scraper to generate the resolution information for the movies?

use a third party media manager most likely.
ember media manager, for instance, can add video resolution info to the .nfo files.

Ronie,

In Frodo the DVD resolution information for ripped DVDs are generated at the time the DVD is played. I have ran into a little snag. For some reason on one of my video entries I can't seem to get the DVD cover to get generated correctly after I play the DVD.

Here is a picture showing that the video entry has a orange DVD cover before I start playing it:
Image

Here is a picture showing that the DVD cover has changed when I pause the DVD while I play it:
Image

Now the issue is when I go back to the video entry list the DVD cover still has the orange DVD cover.
