Support for movie set art in Kodi v19?
#1
The upcoming Kodi v19 will officially support local movie set art, but requires the movie set art to be in this folder structure:

Can the current version of Ember support support putting the movie set artwork into subfolders for each movie?

i don't think this would work..
cos from the photo of that link it shows the parent directory then subdirectory of each movie set folder name..
and as you can see, there is only images, no movie files.

Ember scrape the images directly to each movie folder, rather than to a parent directory somewhere else.

Movie set artwork is saved separately from the movies:

The image is the first image in the linked thread, which shows a settings screen within EMM. It's not my image. Looks like the image is hosted on sc-cdn.scaleengine.net, which I have no idea what that is.

Ok thanks. Removed the link as it went to something completely different.

Using <settitle>-<arttype> will not work in Kodi v19.

Simple names should be used... eg banner, clearart, clearlogo, poster etc...

Also, Kodi does not read nfo files for Sets. It may in future, but no plans for v19.

Quote:To prepare and be compatible with Kodi v19, use the following method...

Create the Central Movie Set folder
Create sub-folders for each movie set
Name the movie set sub-folder exactly as the collection is named in Kodi. This is important or else the movie set folder will be ignored.
Save artwork to the sub-folder using short filenames.

Anywhere you like, just tell Ember in settings where it is

Is this "new" tree structure for movie set artwork (instead of having all the files in the same folder)  already compatible with Leia? Sorry but I'm too lazy to try :-)

Kodi actually doesn't recognize that artworks without the Kodi addon "Artwork Beef". But it's already possible to use the folder and file structure with Ember. Also you can use the Kodi Interface in Ember to add the image paths to Kodi without Artwork Beef. The Kodi Interface adds ANY folder and file name structure to Kodi as long as Ember recognizes it, even if you use customized file names.
