Question

Hey guys first time poster here.

I have been using the CinemaVision addon for a couple of weeks, getting used to and everything works great. Its fantastic. My only concern is I download my movie trailers locally to my hard drive so I get the best quality and also 5.1 sound for certain sites. Every time I run my sequence using my local trailers folder, CV never plays or recognizes them. iTunes trailers work just fine, just not my local trailers. I was using Cinema Experience before using this and all my local trailers played back fine during the script. I also have nfo info on all my trailers in each folder. Is there something I'm doing wrong like a setting or something I'm missing? I rather play my trailers from the hard drive than do iTunes streaming.

The way we handle trailers has actually been heavily modified in 0.0.45. Once that's released, give it a shot. You'll want to make sure that if you're selecting the option for KodiDB (Kodi Database) that your trailers have been scraped into Kodi. If that's not the case, you'll have to use Directory, and depending on how the content is named and scraped in, you may not have ratings for some trailers.

ok that works. I noticed you mentioned the KodiDB being an option and trailers being scraped into Kodi. I have never done that before. I've always played them directly with having to scrape them into Kodi. How would I go about doing that? do they go a different section in Kodi? I have all my trailer info(plot, title, genre) in .nfo files inside the same folder as the trailer.

I believe you have to have your trailers in the same directory as the movie they represent, and add -trailer to the end of the file name. Shoot a PM to Dave the Minion, he's the only one I know that does it that way. He can walk you through the process. I'll try to talk him into creating a guide once we get that section up.
