I've seen videos get taken down by FOX.

There is some done, but Kodi doesn't yet support what we want to do. The video trivia needs a music stream behind it, and Kodi with the current player can only do one or the other, not two at a time. We won't be releasing video trivia until we're able to mimic the experience of our still trivia. They would be named like the still trivia, with _q/_cX/_a on the end of the file name. You could also change that and use a slides.xml file that you write to specify a different name. I'm not sure if we'll get in trouble for using short clips from movies. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

there is a fun trivia in kodi today that (standalone addon) takes your own movies, and plays a 5 second clip from your library and then you get 4 random answers (file name from your own library) to choose from. 

to incorporate that kind of trivia would solve the pirate issue and could mix well with the existing trivia. 

but im guessin its pretty hard to doo.

That wouldn't be too hard to do, actually. I can add that as something we look into doing in a future release. We looked at that Movie Quiz add-on, but it hadn't been updated since 2011 and I didn't want to put something in that had the potential to break. When we do it, it will likely be our own version written for CinemaVision.

Weird question along this line - if I have a video file in the trivia folder will it play during the trivia section or does the trivia scraper only look for images?

Right now, because of some limitations in Kodi, we can only do one or the other. That, and the Video Trivia can't have music behind it, and plays like a normal video instead of like trivia. We're hoping this gets fixed in the near future. In a perfect world, we'd like to mix video and still trivia in the same preshow, with a continuous music stream behind it like in the theaters. CinemaVision will recognize video trivia that matches the naming convention we use for still trivia. Anything without a _q/_cX/_a on the end is treated like a trivia set, and anything else is a single slide. Make sure you don't put any trivia files in the Trivia Slides root.
