hi

im looking to use kodi to replace my old movie server. i have had ago at this before but couldnt get what i wanted. could anyone help with some advice on the best set up for what i need.

I use anydvd for my dvd's and blurays so there .iso and .bdmv file. all i mainly want is for the cases to come up with bluray or dvd cases, such as in the image. when i tried this before the only way it would work is to play the movie first.

any help would be appreciated!

thanks!

Kodi is not a server. It is for playback.

that depends on the skins - I believe what you see there is a version of Aeon MQ with a skin mod. That person has their movies tagged with Movie Name (2015) - Blu-ray.ext or something along those lines. @wanilton may be able to explain as I have never tagged my files this way.
