Solved Scraping films with the Kodi Scraper (tMM 3.1.13)
#1
Hello!

I try to scrape via the Kodi Scraper (I have installed Kodi locally on my Mac), but all I can chose is this:
"Kodi: The Movie Database - 5.1.7"

But I have another Scraper installed in Kodi named "Videobuster".
How can I chose this one in tinyMediaManager?

Thank you for help!

where has the scraper been downloaded by Kodi? according to https://kodi.wiki/?title=Userdata#addon_data this should be /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/Kodi/addons (and this will be searched for according to the code)

whats the content of that videobuster folder?
Is this a new python based one?
Because we only support the old-style XML based scrapers...

I've found a possible issue there... When we search for addons in the Kodi user folder, we take ~/.kodi prior to ~/Application Support/Kodi (due to some sort of default in Linux). But the problem is, that ~/.kodi exists in macOS (but there is only a temp folder on my machine).

I suppose changing this should fix loading for you. Nevertheless - support of python scrapers cannot be done

It seems to be a xml scraper:

Yes, this folder is existing!

After changing it to another name it works! tinyMediaManager shows me the scraper.
I will look if it works.

Thank you for that fast solution!
