Trailer Rating Match Features 1.1.1a12

Question

I've come back to CV after a few years and am using 1.1.1a12 on my LinHES / Kodi 18.1 system. I have a fairly basic sequence that plays 10 minutes of trivia, 3 trailers, audio bumper, rating bumper, feature. I have no locally-stored trailers and haven't modified the default trailer settings. I'd prefer to have trailer ratings match the feature, but I'm having mixed results.

If I select an R-rated movie, 3 R-rated trailers play just fine. However, selecting a G-rated movie "A Bug's Life" causes no trailers to play with both Rating Match Features and Match Genre turned on. Match Features on and Genre off results in the same trailer for Apollo 11 playing followed by a skip to the audio bumper and then feature.

The youtube addon seems to be throwing an error here that might be related to my LinHES / Kodi version, but I'm not sure. I tried removing and re-installing the YT addon 6.6.0 without success. Paste of the log from starting the sequence on the G-rated movie to the end here.

I tried disabling Match Features and re-enabling Match Genre. That played 3 different trailers before "A Bug's Life," one of which was a cartoon. None of those trailers happened to include the green MPAA rating card at the beginning, so I'm not sure if they were all G or not. I'd rather 3 trailers play rather than none or one, so I'm leaving match features disabled for now. Is there something else I can do to get this feature working? Is there some other YT addon I'm supposed to be using?

Here's an old thread on how CV handles MPAA ratings on trailers.  I'm presuming it still works the same.  If I recall, somebody had a similar issue where they were wanting to play x amount of trailers and it was only playing y when filtered to genre and rating.  I think it was determined that the trailers source just didn't have any trailers that met those specific filters.

Thank you for the reply. I don't think that's the case here, because with match rating turned off I've been offered multiple G-rated movies. I'm just leaving it off for now and skipping any trailers that I don't want the kids to watch.

What are you using for your trailers source?  YouTube or iTunes?  If it's YouTube, maybe it doesn't know the trailer MPAA thus it's considered unrated?  Have you tried changing it to a different source to see if it works any different?

Sorry I just saw this reply. I'm away from my Kodi machine for awhile but will check when I can. As far as I recall, I didn't change trailer sources. It should be using whatever the Cinemavision plugin uses for a default trailer source.
