Question about Development Release 1.0.14a6

Question

Is there an option to set conditional sequences based on filename?  Like I have a couple of IMAX aspect ratio movies that I have set for "moviename_IMAX".  Can I set a conditional sequence to play an IMAX bumper based off the file name?

Okay, so I've figured out how to do this using tags.  My Kodi already had an existing tag for "imax version".  Kodi will allow you to add movies to tags, so all my IMAX movies I just added to that tag.  In the sequence I set the condition to tag and manually typed "imax version" as there is no search option, they aren't in alphabetical order and I wasn't scrolling through hundreds of tags.  You will have to manually add each of your IMAX movies to the tag, but I only have a hand full at the moment.

I apparently had a couple I didn't realize were IMAX as they were already tagged in Kodi.  I'll go back and watch them later to verify the aspect ratio changes during playback.  If they end up being incorrect, just remove them from the tag. B|

I also found out that you can add <tag>whatever you want the tag to be</tag> in the .nfo file and Kodi will automatically add it to the tags list.  This is how the other movies were already listed as being IMAX versions.
