Release Google Drive for KODI - (available in the Kodi Add-on repository)
Hi, 
I found no problem in scrapping strm files for movies, but when trying to scrape tv shows, it doesn't show me anything eventhough I have a correct structure

Series
- TV Show name (with tvshow.nfo and poster.jpg)
-- Season number
-----TV show name - S01EXX - episode name.mkv.strm
-----TV show name - S01EXX - episode name.mkv.nfo

Does this work with tv shows?  I guess it does, so.. anyone can think what might be my problem?

Thanks in advanced

I recently switched to Kodi Portable version and I'm really happy with this option because all the files are located on a non-OS drive. Would it be possible when creating the google drive add-on Movies and TV Shows folders which contain the *.strm files to put those folders inside the Kodi Portable directory without causing problems?

I would love a single location to backup everything that is why I am asking. If anyone has any experience with this please let me know.

thx, droid

Don't worry about it, it will work.
If you create a folder, for example named as "strms" in portable_data folder you can even add it as a file source with its relative path.

special://home/strms/Movies/
special://home/strms/TV Shows/

Never forget how smart Kodi is Smile , it will add the strm files in Kodi library with the special path and translate the special path to the actual path when you click to play them. 

Hey again and yes more questions. I was hoping to share my portable kodi version with one of my sisters but of course it failed due to problems with the path. I am now realizing the absolute importance of the "special path" above. Can I edit the portable_data/userdata/sources.xml to fix this without breaking the media database? Also, how do I deal with the google drive add-on signin?

p.s. Can I use a url that is mirroring my google drive folder/file/name structure?

Happy Friday, sorry for the weekend homework Droid

I am scrapping with local info only using local nfo files

Hi @cguZZMan , I am using Kodi DSPlayer 17.7 (351534 (thread)). This unofficial version of Kodi allows me to playback HDR movies in true HDR on the built-in display of my HDR-capable Surface Book 2 15" using madVR and LAV Filters. This version of Kodi gives the option of playing either using DSPlayer with madVR and LAV filters or the default Kodi VideoPlayer.

I have been using the Google Drive Plugin and it has been working great. However, whenever I try to play any file stored in Google Drive using DSPlayer, it says "unable to play the file". I have tried playing the file directly in the Google Drive Addon as well as through STRM files. The default Kodi Videoplayer plays the Google Drive files perfectly. Also, any locally stored file is played perfectly by DSPlayer with true HDR colors. I also tried using external players such as MPC-BE with madVR and LAV filters, but that too failed to play the files, both in the Google Drive addon as well as STRM files.

So, does this Google Drive Plugin not support external players? Is this not compatible with DSPlayer? Is there any way to display full HDR colors for 4K HDR mkvs stored in Google Drive?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Use TVDB instead of themoviedb as scraper

When playing a video the stream could randomly crash at times. Specifically the stream will close when the "forward" in codecs info panel (CRTL Shift O) drop to 0B, and then the vq and aq will drop gradually to zero. . When all has zeroed in the steam will crash.Its like the strean won't progress further even with stable internet and pausing for indefinite time. What can I do to mitigate this?
Setup is Firestick 4k, Kodi Leia 18.7 and Gdrive1 1.3.6 playing from strm files

Will version 1.3.4 still work ok?  What export issues did 1.3.6 fix?

1.3.6 seems to have resolved the naming issues of all video files with the correct *.strm extension. Also, it is correctly removing strm files as media is deleted or moved on google drive. This is my experience anyway and I am using Leia 18.7 windows 10.
