Which scraper to use?
#1
Hi. So I can't seem to find an answer for this, so asking here.

I've imported, sorted, scraped and downloaded all extra content for my movies (posters, fanart, info, etc) using TMM. But when adding the movies in Kodi, do I select TMDB or local scrape only?

I keep the default scraper which i think is tmdb
That scraper looks for local nfo before scraping online

Ah! Thanks! That was exactly the info I was looking for!  Big Grin

So just to confirm....I have a lot of Disney movies that I have manually added to a set called Walt Disney Collection in TMM. If I select TMDB, Kodi will automatically take up my custom set...right?

AFAIK yes
I even think it does that regardless of which scraper you choose

Kodi will always look for local information first- nfo files, artwork, trailers etc via its internal scan process.

When it does not find local, it then invokes the scraper and finds the information via the scraper
