Path for local trailers...

Question

Hi,

I just wanted to let you know that when the program asks for a specifc folder to play local trailers in, it only allows you to choose local drives.  I was able to fix the XML to point to the network share and it works just fine, but I am curious as to why the selection is restricted to local drives.

So what you're seeing is likely wonky behavior from Kodi. Make sure that you have added your network share as a source via the Kodi File Manager and you'll be able to see the share in that list. For quick instructions, click here and scroll down to the CONFIGURING THE ADD-ON > What To Do After Installation section.

Yeah, I've found that Kodi and Windows share don't play nice together.  Sometimes not at all. I don't want to map a drive, so I guess I can add the sources in

The odd thing is, the behavior tends to be different on different platforms of Kodi. :) Adding the shares as sources seems to circumvent all the issues, so that's the best practice we like to use. If you think Windows shares are confusing, you should take a look at unRAID. Ten minutes and you'll hug your Windows share!
