Release MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags
Hello Xycl!

Thank you for your plugin, I couldn't wait to see that coming on Matrix! I tried to installed it, but I can't find out to make it work so far. At the step 1b from the readme file, it says:
Quote:Within MyPicsDB (not in the configuration) select menu "Paths of pictures folders" to add these paths to the database
My picture folders are correctly added as media sources within the Kodi settings. What do you mean exactly by "within MyPicsDB"? When I try to access the addon via the Pictures section, I just get a refresh with no content. Moreover, is MySQL mandatory to run? It felt like it could run on SQLite.

Thanks!

Ok, that was because it was not first run. I deleted the MyPictures.db file and ran it again. The addon crashed, I pasted the logs here. I got a popup with the message "Database will be updated. You must re-scan your folders". When I try to run it afterwards, I get what I think is the addon main menu with the loading wheel. After a few seconds, I get a blank screen.

I'm running Matrix on a Windows 10 computer, all addon options set to default. Let me know if you need me to run more tests.

Hi BreizhReloaded,

do you have a clean Matrix installation?
I ask because of this log file entry: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(plugin://plugin.image.mypicsdb2/) failed

The last time I saw such an entry was after I had deleted an addon in the addon directory.
It seems that there is something corrupted with your addons.
But this is only a guess.

I forgot to say: Currently MySql or MariaDB are not supported.
Don't even try to use them.

When I tried to update MyPicsDb I got the following error message:
2021-04-20 12:27:34.571 T:11324   ERROR <general>: Failed to move old addon files from 'c:\apps\Kodi\portable_data\addons\plugin.image.mypicsdb2' to 'c:\apps\Kodi\portable_data\addons\temp\9dc73ca9-a9a7-4cfd-aebf-5593f9e9aa9d'

This could only be solved by deleting the plugin directory  'c:\apps\Kodi\portable_data\addons\plugin.image.mypicsdb2' and then installing the new MyPicsDB version.

Perhaps a Matrix issue?

It should be clean, I use an other install for my devs. I'm having a deeper look this week and I'll let you know. Thanks!

Ok, you were right: I removed everything including the repository itself, and I finally made it work. It seems to be an error from Matrix, but I don't know what exactly. Anyway, thank you!

Now that is runs, I have a question: can it read XMP tags stored in a separate file? or does it have to be merged into the picture file?

Edit: I solved that by merging the data using exiftool Smile

Whenever You need testing of MySQL/MariaDB users I'm more than glad to help!
Both with upgrade from Python 2  version and/or with new DB instance.
