Fanart from TMDB only shows "No Language" Backdrops
#1
I've noticed that when I add or refresh a movie that if the Fanart from TheMovieDB has a language set it will not be selectable as FanArt in Kodi.  The only FanArt I can select is if the language is set to No Language.

For example the backdrops for this movie
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/451289-.../backdrops?

There is 1 English backdrop, and 2 No Language backdrops (I added the no language ones)

When this movie is added into Kodi the English Backdrop will not appear in FanArt, only the "No Language" backdrops appear as fanart.  Is this a bug in Kodi, or is it that the TMDB API is not returning the backdrop set to English?

That is intentional. Fanart are images with no text.

Fanart with text is Landscape. The latest version of the scraper now scrapes Landscape images when you enable that setting in the scraper.

I have V5.2 of the TMDB scraper, and I enabled the Landscape option, and refreshed the movie, and it still doesn't show that English Pic as one of the Fanart available.  Are you saying that there is a newer version of that scraper available?

And it never will. Please re-read my previous post.

If you want to swap Landscape for Fanart, then you will need to save the landscape image locally and rename it fanart, then Refresh the movie.
