How do I get fanart automatically downloaded to folders?
#1
Hi,

I've been using Media Center Master to automatically download needed metadata and artwork.
However, I've noticed that Kodi only displays fanart when browsing through My Movies and  My TV Shows. 
Media Center Master seems to only download backdrops and no fanart. Images labeled backdrops don't seem to get displayed when browsing.

So, is this something that I am doing that backdrops don't get displayed or something about the build I am using?

I would really like to see the large image behind the video files I am searching through.
What can I do to make this happen automatically?

Thanks,

John

Yes, in the Kodi world we do not use "backdrops". We use fanart

Artwork Beef addon will scan your title artwork every time you start KODI and auto add.  Displaying Fanart and/or ExtraFanart may require skin setting to enable it depending which skin you use.  The addon will replace incorrect artwork.

Thanks for the advice, I now have Artwork Beef installed and activated.

My next question is how do I automate getting fanart images in My Movies Folder for the movies I have on my PC?

Is there a program or plugin for Kodi that will do this?

Thanks,

John
