How to manage Music Video display format when scrapped to library?
#1
Hello, everyone.
I am running Kodi 20.2 on RPi4.
I tried to scan to library my music video clips collection, but faced strange behavior with displaying scanned videos names.
So far I scraped just 2 music videos to my library (Useless and Wrong) and here is the results on how this now be displayed in different views:
Video files view: (Only Title displayed) Seemed to be %T
Image

Next Music Library - view by titles (display format Artist - Title seemed to be %A - %T)

Image

Next Video library view by genres Title - Artist (seemed to be %T - %A)

Image

And Music vide view by Genres - only title again (%T)

Image

I've checked skin XML layout and it seemed to be all the time $INFO[ListItem.Label] used to display content name.
Image

Thus definition should be should be somewhere deeper.

Could you please give me a clue how to define Music Video display format be like %A - %T all the time ?

p.s. I applied temporary workaround as follows, but i suppose it would be better to find settings-based solution, not skin-change approach:
xml:
<control type="label">
        <left>10</left>
        <top>0</top>
        <width>720</width>
        <height>40</height>
        <font>font13</font>
        <textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
        <selectedcolor>selected</selectedcolor>
        <align>left</align>
        <aligny>center</aligny>
        <visible>String.IsEmpty(ListItem.Artist)</visible>
        <label>$INFO[ListItem.Label]</label>
</control>
<control type="label">
        <left>10</left>
        <top>0</top>
        <width>720</width>
        <height>40</height>
        <font>font13</font>
        <textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
        <selectedcolor>selected</selectedcolor>
        <align>left</align>
        <aligny>center</aligny>
        <visible>!String.IsEmpty(ListItem.Artist)</visible>
        <label>$INFO[ListItem.Artist] - $INFO[ListItem.Title]</label>
</control>

Settings > Media > Videos > Disable: Replace file names with library titles.

Sorted by artist so this is correct.

Sorted by name of video so correct.

Dear @Hitcher  thank you for pointing me at.
The fact that sort order impact display label format was not obvious but now seemed quite logical.
As for the files I got your point.
Thanks a lot!
