Trailer feature

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I am trying to configure the trailers option in Cinemavision. I can see 3 options. Kodi Database, CV Trailers Folder, and Apple iTunes. I have no interest in manually Downloading trailers to my local machine so, CVTrailers Folder options is out. When i try Kodi Database, I seem to get a black screen that does not advance and eventually kicks me back to my movie library (I prefer not to watch trailers for movies I already have anyway) and lastly, the apple iTunes trailer. I don't have the applie itunes app installed because apparently support for that app ended a couple years ago and I am not able to find a workaround to get that app installed. I do host all my movies on plex and it can supply trailers, but not sure if there is a way to integrate this. So I guess my goal or question is. Is there a way to get apple iTunes installed and working these days, or is there a way to get plex trailers feature working inside Cinemavision, or is there another workaround to get trailers to stream from the internet for new movies?

Hey there! Let me preface this by saying that I might need you to post a debug log for me to tell what's going on here.

The KodiDB trailer scraper pulls the YouTube trailers for the content that you have added to your library, so that's not going to be what you're looking for since you mentioned you'd rather show trailers for movies that you don't have in your library. Given that, you'll probably want to disable that scraper in your Trailers Module.

The iTunes trailer scraper keeps getting broken by Apple. They do weird things to prevent applications like ours from successfully pulling trailers (especially in HD) from their website. As an answer to that, we've been able to add a new trailer scraper that you'll currently find in the development build.

CinemaVision 1.1.1 will come with the TMDb trailer scraper, which in our testing has been more reliable and has better quality than the iTunes trailer scraper. Unfortunately, there's not yet a Plex integration (though that's something we're very interested in) for CinemaVision. Feel free to ask for that over on the Plex forums. I know they have bigger fish to fry than us, but having users request a feature usually gets that moved up on the list. We've talked to them in the past, and they simply didn't have development cycles to take on integration, but that was a year ago.
