Getting Kodi to show random fanart from Media Center Master
#1
Hi
I'm pretty new to Kodi, and looking for a specific setup, if it possible. I'm been looking around, but can't seem to find a solution to specific my challenge. Perhaps I just finding find it, as the community is so big, that it may drown in the size of Q&A's.
Because I'm new to Kodi, I don't know if it possible or even if it's the right place to ask, but I gotta start somewhere.

From the old days, I was running the build-in Media Center of Windows 7 together with Media Center Master (MCM), and specific I liked the function, that Media Center ransom showed the fanart from MCM and rotated those images, when you where on a movie e.g. reading the storyline.

It is possible to get Kodi to behave in the same way, and if so how?

Right now I running Kodi on a Windows 10 HTPC, where I also have MCM installed. My media is located on a Synology NAS, which runs Emby. 
I'm sure I need MCM at all, I just liked the feature, where it downloaded everything for the media, including several images and the front-end could show them all by rotating.

you need to set mediacenter master to output nfo files to be save in movie folders(it may be save for kodi on a drop down menu)

in kodi you set up folders with movies
this directy contans movies]

You lost me after the first line, remember I'm new to Kodi. So even if I configured something, it doesn't mean I know where everything is located and to do it.

This is what I got to:
Media Center Master creates an NFO fil in the folder that contains the movie. If also creates multiple images, which is what I like Kodi to show.

What do I do now and where?

In Kodi I have the Emby installed, has it is running on my NAS.

Do I have to remove Emby and setup a new media source or what?

Be wary with Media Managers claiming to be Kodi compatible. Media Center Master is not one that I have come across in the forum, and a quick look on their site reveals a few issues that are not compatible with Kodi. There was nowhere I could view one of their NFO Files, so I don't know how accurate their NFO Files are.

A number of skins use rotating fanart when viewing the movie in the library. Aeon Nox: Silvo is one.

Kodi is a standalone product, and does not need support software. Media Managers simply try to emulate what Kodi does.

Moved to "Supplementary Tools for Kodi" as the topic is not related to Estuary at all.

I don't think Media Center Master and kodi are compatible because both are independently developed, each has a strong point, but combining with each other is impossible.
