No iTunes trailers and won't even run sometimes

Question

Hi,

 

Could anyone tell me if they have come across this before?  I searched, but to no avail.

This is my first attempt at using CV, but after watching videos, reading articles and this forum, I finally got a sequence working perfectly.  I absolutely love CV and appreciate all of the thought and effort that went into it so that people like me can create an experience like this without doing any coding.

1) I had the CinemaVision add-on working perfectly without the Trailers module enabled.  The Features module was enabled but CV was not launched from within Kodi so the default content placeholder played, and it played correctly.

2) After disabling all of the modules and then enabling the Trailers module alone, no trailers appeared*- only a black screen.

3) After disabling all of the modules and then enabling the Features module alone, launching CV from Video/Files/xyz.ISO, adding it to the queue, and then Play it just goes blank for a second and then returns to the Kodi file selection screen.

*Only one time did trailers show up.

My log is here: http://pastebin/vEUXjkuL

Thank you for any help you can provide.

-Phil

Hey Phil! Thanks for the log. Surprisingly, you're giving me an easy one. :) What you're seeing is a bug in the iTunes scraper that has been fixed for version 1.0.12. We've still got a few more bug fixes to include, but you can find the development release here:

I'd recommend you install that. It will install right over the current stable version you have installed, and once we release 1.0.12 to the repository, it'll update to the stable version. That said, in looking through your log, there's a lot of stuff that's throwing errors or is broken entirely. I noticed a bunch of TVAddons stuff in there, so I'm guessing you're using a build. I'll tell you, you're probably better off building Kodi from scratch than using those builds. Even some of the add-ons you have installed fall into the not well maintained category, and could potentially cause issues for you down the line. My recommendation is to build Kodi from scratch and install only the add-ons that you use, and look through your log to see if any are causing problems.

Thank you- iTunes trailers are working fine now!

My sequence ran perfectly except that I have a setting wrong but I don't know which it is.  First I queue up a movie, then I start it in CV*.  The sequence runs right up to the point where the main movie is next.  Even if this is the only movie queued, I still have to click on "Play main title" on the "Select playback item" screen.  My settings are as follows:
    - Hide queue editor = true
    - If only one item queued = true
    - Ignore Kodi playlist with only one item if there is a selection = true
 
*Most of the time CV tells me that there is nothing in the queue.  All I have to do is queue it again and then CV will run (yet now there are two movies in the queue (one movie, duplicated) and I delete one of them).

Thanks again,
-Phil
 

BTW - what does "Apply to queue" mean when queuing up a movie?

Glad that helped solve that issue. So when you launch CinemaVision, how are you launching it? Are you using the CinemaVision Launcher, launching it through the Sequence Editor, or are you using a button on the movie information screen?

If you're using the movie information screen, what skin are you using? The Apply to queue button in the Queue Dialog allows you to reorder items in your Kodi queue, and update the queue when you click that button. That way you can modify your queue, and come back to it later if you add more movies or reorder more items.

To configure CV, I go to System/Add-ons/My add-ons/.../CinemaVision/Configure.  I can also run it (instead of configuring) which will launch the sequence editor.  I can also launch the sequence editor directly from the CV Launcher.  Whichever way I get there I can bring up a context menu and save/load/etc... or I can Play CV.  All that'll do is perform a "test run".  Am I correct so far?  I hope so.

To run CV for real, I go to Videos/Files/<locate my movie to play> and hold the button on the remote until a menu pops up.  I select "add to queue" and then I hold the button on the remote again and select "CinemaVision".  Almost always I am told there's nothing in the queue so I just have to do the previous two steps again.  Then the sequence runs almost perfectly.  The only thing that I need to get past is the "Play main title" on the "Select playback item" screen.  The screen with the "Apply to queue" only shows up before my sequence starts the first action, which makes sense.  I have attached a picture of the screen to which I am referring.

BTW, I am using the default Confluence skin.

Thanks again,

-Phil
