Ups, deleted my post, as I've found out about profiles properties!

But thx again for that prompt and helpful answer!

Is it possible to run the cache parts of texturecache and not try to cache animated poster and animated fanart as I am not interested in those anyhow?
If my post helped you then there is a nice "Thank user" button on the bottom of the post.

@laric specify a suitable pattern for "cache.ignore.types". If you need to specify multiple patterns, use a comma-separated list, ie. "cache.ignore.types=.*\.gif,.*\.GIF" to ignore both *.gif and *.GIF.

I just upgraded and all I get are errors on movies, it can refresh tvseries but not movies

it gives :
Could not obtain OMDb details for [movie] ttxxxxxxxx (Movie Name)

and the log gives :

Not at the moment - the imdb refresh functionality relies on the omdbapi.com service which is not currently available. Please visit http://www.omdbapi.com as they're appealing for emergency donations via Patreon.

Hi guys, does the skinhelperservice support storage of the animated gif files outside of the thumbnailsfolder yet? I'm interested in it.

I just found out that the new version does. Thanks Marcel.

Hi Milhouse. I've a question for you. Why texturecache will retrieve ratings from OMDB instead of getting ratings directly from IMDB? It's not possible to do this?

Thanks

Imdb.com don't make it easy (and don't want people) to scrape their website. I also don't want to create a metadata scraper as there's plenty of those already. Adding a function that calls a service (omdbapi.com) made more sense - hopefully omdbapi.com will get the funding it needs to keep going.

It works fine for all animated posters, but I'm experiencing some troubles with the animated fanarts. For a lot of movies (not all) Kodi doesn't show the animated fanart anymore (for example Back to the Future collection). Since using the new version of your skinhelperservice on Jarvis (Android), the standard jpg fanart is often missing (black background) Any idea what causes this? Regards MB1968


This is not a support thread for skinhelper so Please post your question in skinhelper support thread.

omdbapi.com seems to be back up (more or less - I did have one or two timeouts) so the imdb option should be mostly working again.

Can I do a suggestion: Would you consider using my new metadata module to retrieve these ratings ?
https://github.com/marcelveldt/script.mo...r.artutils
It has proper caching builtin. I created it in a first attempt to lower the amount of requests to the net of all kind of seperate addons.
This way you request the rating and will get the cached result (max 7 days old in case of omdb details) which will save omdbapi another request to their api.

This module is pending repo submission, should be available soon (I hope).
