Movie and TV Universes. Are there any good practices to follow for the Arrowverse?

Looks great!!

Thanks for the list. I'll add it to the wiki in the next couple of days.

Thank you Big Grin

Was up till early hours last night finishing it off, then saw your post and thought I'd share. 

Now, thankfully, I wont have to switch between seasons to watch.

Still, after years of using Kodi, trying to figure out how to stop the next episode from playing automatically.. I'm a sod for falling asleep when watching and trying to figure out which one I fell asleep in. I've found the settings in various skins to prevent it, but none seem to work, the episodes still all play one after the other.

Do you have setting 1.1 disabled? It is a toggle, so select to add or remove.

I've not got anything selected there, but if I do highlight episodes and/or tv shows it doesn't seem to make any difference. It's just bewildering to me.

That is strange. I don't have that problem. How do you commence playback? "Enter" or are you setting up playlists (not the smart playlists) or context menu/play from here?

My only other thought is an add-on might be forcing the next video to play?

Capture it in a Debug Log and post it. It might show what is forcing the next episode to play.

I use my nVidia Shield for my Kodi setup, so I use the remote for that or the Kore remote for android. I'm not setting up anything other than smart playlists, but this is just watching a regular series not in a smart playlist. I presume the middle button on the shields remote or the Kore Android app is 'enter'?

I can't see an addon that would force it to play the next episode, and I'm using the normal folder structure:
TV
-Arrow
-Season 1
---Episode 1
---Episode 2
-Season 2
---Episode 1
---Episode 2

The skin I am using is Aeon Nox SiLVO with the 'recommended' and 'optional' addons installed. 

I've tried to replicate the problem on my main rig (PC), but it's fine on here.. It seems like it's only happening on the nVidia Shield.

I'm not sure how to get a debug log off the nVidia Shield yet, I'll work it out.

....Just as typing this post I found the bugger! 

It is an addon called 'Up Next'. I've disabled it and tested and it's stopped playing the next episode.

Hi,

@Rippoholic 

Thanks for this detailed guided, was exactly what i was looking for.
I dough however have a questian, the movies that you list in your "Universes" is there a way to exclude them from the "Movies" Menu ?

Was wondering if there is some way, cause now i have a listing of a movie twice, once under "Movies" and once under "Universes"

Regards
Peter

@billmartian Still learning myself.

If you enter the context menu you may be able to 'hide' them, though I'm not sure if they will disappear from the Universes list too.

**Post edited to fix an error.

Create a new Smart Playlist
Add your rules to exclude your Universe playlists.
Then set Match to "Match all rules"

Once you have your playlist, in a suitable skin edit the Movie menu item so it points to the new smart playlist.

So I just came across this thread and found it very interesting. And now I have an opinion and a question.

First my opinion: 
Instead of using BulkRenamer I'd use Advance Renamer (it's Free/Donation-ware (were as long as after the trial period you dont mind closing the little pop-up asking for donation to get a serial key almost every time you open the program. Or you can make the donation.)) as it's slightly easier on both the eyes and use.
As far as actually renaming goes you can add all files and sort them in the order you want then use a rename selection type and have it add [[Universe Name Prefix] Numbering] to the beginning of the filename
So you Rename parameters would look like this

And now for the question:
With all that being said how would I make a smart playlist for the Entire Star Wars Universe (or others) that have both movies and tv shows like THIS. I know that there is 4 Types Of playlist (Movies, TV Show, Episodes, Mixed) While I tried the Mixed and couldn't get nothing to show; and iirc the options you get for adding isn't all that much or as complete as what you get with the other 3.

Wasn't aware of that one, but I will try it next time I have a large number of files to rename.

Mixed content is for combining Music and Music Videos only. As they both share the same Artist field they are easier to match up and combine.

Unfortunately you cannot. Kodi does not allow combining of TV Shows and Movies into a Smart Playlist. It would be a nice feature to have, but no developer has shown interest in coding the feature. (public is welcome to help out)

There are a couple of work arounds but they are ugly and require a fair amount of work and hair pulling.
1. m3u8 playlist. Very ugly, limited artwork, limited everything. Add to the list one movie or episode at a time, and not easy to edit to add more entries.
2. Move Movies into a TV Show and each movie is an episode. Easier than previous option, but I imagine not something most members would want.

Ahh ok well I just thought off maybe another way to make that playlist but it requires making 2 other playlists; one for Movies, and one for Episodes; and the 3 playlist would have links to both playlists in the add options. But what type to make it (Movies, TV Show, or Episodes) I don't know.

Oh and I almost forgot that when bulk renaming using Advance Renamer you would want to do that for every type of file (ie video, nfo, thumbs (jpeg, jpg)) your parameters would be the same and you would have to order the files the same so it might get a little tidiest (if you have them)

Nope, that will not work either. I have tried that Wink
