Hi.

I made the changes proposed by @da-anda.

In case, there is no DVD drive, the following dialog appears:

[Image: h7djeqL.jpg]

The first "3:10 to Yuma (2007)" corresponds to the <title> section of the .disc stub file, and the "DVD #778" is the <message> section.

What do you think? Any more suggestions?

Regards.

what's the message if it's an empty stub file? It might be good to change the last paragraph to "Please check your offline library for it." in this case (or something like that) or just omit it?

How about: "Please check your offline library." and the last line with the <message> section?

Thus, the idea is given anyway and the <message> part is an addition/clarification given by the user, who is the one who has written the specific instructions to get what he needs...

What do you think?

The changes mentioned by dml3334 sound really GREAT, since it would make my kodi really family compliant. I'm using krypton 8.1 on libreelec (raspberry), which is newer than the last post on this forum, but it is not there. How do I get this stuff?

Hi.

Sorry, when I commited the changes, developers didn't approve them at first. After some discussions, we all agreed where to place them. I have been very busy since then, but I hope to do it soon. Most probably, it will go in Kodi 8 Leia.

Regards.

I am very interested in this feature. Would it also work with stub files on external harddisks? I have a collection of offline harddisks in addition to a NAS. I can plug those harddisk in a device and connect this to my NVIDIA Shield TV, to make it accessible. When I use media stubs I get stuck with a pop-up window asking me to insert the proper disc. However there is no optical drive. There is currently no way tot use the stubs in a way to enable to use a movie on an external harddrive. I would very much apprciate if this would become possible in the near future
