tinyMediaManager - save actor thumbs locally
#1
Hi there,
I am trying to make TMM to save actor images locally when I am scraping movies/tv shows, I'm using 3.1.6 version. It this feature supported? I can not seem to find it but I think I have read somewhere it's possible.
Best would be to have shared .actors folder so images do not get duplicated.

Thanks for your time :)

Here you go...
Settings/Movies/Images
AND
Settings/TV Shows/Images

Enable "Download actor images to .actor"

The folder named ".actor" will be created for every movie/show and is hidden if you are using linux.

For deduplicated images (linux): https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...uplication

Thanks! I have found it myself in the meantime also, I wish there was a possibility to create one global .actors folder localted on specific path, for one, global collection.
Also wish there was an option to get the movie data to nfo, download actor pictures, posters etc... but do not save its links to the Interner in the nfo file, or maybe save them as a relative path locally?

Keep in mind....The benefit of TMM is to provide local information in a way that can be used by KODI. So KODI specifies the way.

Not supported by KODI (yet) but you can use OS tricks.  Did you look at the link I posted?

If you are on WINDOWS you can do it the similar way with hard links on NTFS: https://www.2brightsparks.com/resources/...links.html
Code:
To create a hard link: mklink /H linkName target
To create a junction: mklink /J linkName target
To create a symbolic link: mklink /D linkName target

To be honest the trick is quite easy and a matter of minutes if you know BATCH Wink

I don't get the approach, but as an explanation....
- The URL in NFO is used to have the reference for downloading missing, lost, updated or further content without the need of re-scraping
- If data is available locally and you use local scraper in KODI, KODI will not access the internet - no matter if there is an URL in NFO or not

Not supported by KODI (yet). Local content has to be in the same directory as the movie itself.
