CinemaVision doesn't seem to kick in

Question

Hi there,

I've downloaded your fantastic looking addon and set it up following the guides on here, however when I play a movie the movie plays without any trailers or bumpers etc.

I created a new sequence which is marked as active and that sequence should play 3 trailers, an audio bumper and then the feature.

I have all the audio bumpers downloaded and in their correct folders and I have the addon set to that folder.

Any idea how I can troubleshoot this?

Cheers

EDIT:

Ok, so I have it working now. I didn't realise I had to trigger it from the context menu. This does pose some further questions however; 

1. Is there no way to set it up so it auto triggers with any movie I select?

2. CinemaVision doesn't seem to appear in the context menu for any movies in my widgets, only the main movie library. Is this a limitation of CinemaVision?

3. Functionality seems to be erratic. One movie I played the DTS bumper never played and then the next movie I played the Dolby digital bumper played but the movie did not. have I set something up incorrectly?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Hey @CraftyClown! Glad you got it going, sorry for the late reply.

Currently, no. We do have plans to integrate that functionality into the CinemaVision Service Add-on but it hasn't been built yet. Putting it in the Service Add-on was a compromise we came to with the Kodi team in order to get the other CinemaVision Add-ons in the official repository. It should be coming soon, our developer is working on the Service Add-on, and some improvements to the main add-on.

That's a limitation of the skin, but it is on our list. The Kodi team was kind enough to include a Cinema Mode button in the Movie Information screen for us, I don't think adding this functionality is a big ask. I'm hoping we can get it added to Estuary, but beyond that it'll be up to the other skinners to add support for the functionality as well.

That's possible, but we need a debug log from you to be able to tell what's going on here. Can I get you to upload one for us to review?

Please follow this guide to upload your debug log for us to review:
