You're sure about that? 

I (incorrectly) hoped that EMM might support SQL i/o as outlined for future Kodi releases .. I suspect that if and when EMM does support such a feature the setup will look more or less as it does now with a toggle for { MySQL | JSON } comms.

It appears to be less the case that I'm doing it wrong and more the case that my not unreasonable expectations exceed the currently implemented capabilities.

Currently, no, it does not - I tracked back through the thread and saw mention that it uses JSON control of a Kodi instance.
It'd be nice to see database support in the future if Dan has the time as it'd avoid this double handling:
Quote:It talks to one of your Kodi instances.
That instance is then updating the database.
Mind you, as of now, with my particular setup using an external database (rather than the regular internal Kodi database) I'm not sure that is true.

I started a local Kodi instance (using the external SQL DB) in parallel with EMM  and gave Kodi permissions in its setup to allow external control (port 9090, Kodi|Kodi), then mirrored those settings in the EMM Kodi module tested the connection and got the response that EMM was reading the Kodi sources . . . 

Several hours later it was still hung at that point and cycling through the "reading Kodi sources" message.


It would be useful to hear whether anyone has any direct experience of getting EMM Kodi module syncing working with a Kodi instance using an external database.

I'm sure.. I have my Kodi database on MariaDB on my Synology 918+.
I have 3 Kodi instances. And Ember is just talking to one of them to make the database uptodate.

I have just been cleaning up my metadata and have noticed that some of my TV Shows have a problem with actors and images when they are scrapped from theTVDB. Mostly it works fine but if an actor has more than one role it goes wrong. I have noticed this so far with Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Adventure Time. In the case of Clone Wars, Dee Bradley Baker has four roles. In the main view of the show the actors list just has Dee in once as Captain Rex, as does the edit shows view. However if you look at the nfo then for each role you get four entries, with the name, and role the same but each of the four images for the various roles. If I delete the Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex entry in the show edit view then all the Dee Bradley Bakers are deleted.

Hi - is there a way to enable trailers and not download it but add youtube URL?

EDIT: Manually I can do this, looking to do that during automated scraping.

This is not fetching trailer url - 1

This is not fetching trailer url - 2
