    trailers .nfo files

    I just downloaded the lastest update to Cinemavision and I noticed this in the update notes: Trailers: Content scraper will now read genre and rating from .nfo files How does this work and how do I add them to the trailers folder? I assume I can put a genre for the trailer I download in the folder and it was analyze it from the actual movie genre to determine which trailers to play

    Trivia Folders

    I would like to know as well. I have to remove and change trivia for every sequence and I know it can be much easier

    Raising the lights during credits

    How are using .nfo files to run your sequences if you don't mind me asking? And I also have been waiting to have this feature implemented into CV as well. Any suggestions?

    Trailers from Youtube/iTunes scraper not working

    I too have had the same problem with iTunes trailers that just stop playing during a sequence and buffering constantly. It really does ruin the experience. Now bare in mind, I do download my trailers to a folder, or several folders actually for each genre and to be honest, I like it better that way because I have more control over everything and also because the quality is better with 5.1 sound. The only thing I need, which is a feature I have been asking for quite some time as well, is that the trailers I download to be able to read the movie feature genres and play the appropriate trailers for that particular movie based off the genre which is something Cinema Experience could do and I loved it. iTunes has been very inconsistent for me with the constant buffering (I have very fast internet as well; 100 Mbps). Any insight on of if any this will be included in a future update and how we can fix the iTunes trailers issue?
  7. Is there a way to just download the trailers to the computer beforehand that way there would not be any buffering?

    Bumpers in Scope (2.35:1, 2.40:1)

    Hey everyone! Could it be possible to get the preshow video bumpers on the site in scope format for people who have scope screens (2.35, 2.40)? I noticed that most if not all the content being made is in 16:9 HD, UHD and 3D. I would love if would get in different aspect ratios as well. Thanks guys

    Intros by Genre

    Will this include movie trailers we've downloaded in the directory not from iTunes anytime soon?

    Scope content and 7.1 sound

    Great! Can't wait to see it happen. I actually have not seen any scope bumpers that I am aware of on the site. Is there a list somewhere? What about 5.1 vs 7.1 audio detection? Is that something that will be added as well? Thanks
  11. I had an idea especially for people with scope (2.35 or 2.40) screens. Most of the bumpers I noticed are in 16:9 which is normal because that is the standard but for people with scopes screens or who may want to do that later it can be an issue. I wonder, if possible, when running a sequence it can detect of the movie is in scope and play all the appropriate video bumpers and trivia in scope. Basically I have some Dolby trailers in 2.35 and 16:9 so if the movie is 16:9 or 2.35 it will play the bumpers and movie trailers in the same format as the movie. In the same instance, I have two types of Dolby bumpers. One is the regular Dolby 5.1 bumper and the other says Dolby Surround 7.1. Say the movie is in Dolby TrueHD 7.1 it can play the Dolby 7.1 bumper rather than the regular one. Just some ideas I wanted to throw out there I would like to see implemented. I don't know if it's possible to do now or not but it would be really cool to see. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions to add on to this, feel free to comment below. Thanks

    streaming music

    How to use streaming music from say Pandora or Spotify to play during the Triva?

    transition from trivia and slight pause

    Ok i got the background music taken care of. Apparently I have the music visualizer on so I turn it off and now I have nothing popping up in the sequences anymore. Now I still get a slight pause on every video that plays on my pre-show. i set a video delay of about 2000 ms but I don't think that helped any. Also, just to make note of, my local trailers are not being played from the content folder even though they are being recognized in the content scan. Here is my log http://pastebin.com/xdr1hqEk
  14. Hey guys, Been testing the betas for the last couple of weeks and I wanted to make note of a couple of things I've noticed that others might have too. 1. Whenever the trivia is about to end, there is no fade-out transition and the media player that plays the background music from Kodi pops up for a couple of secs then it ends. It's kinda messy. I've noticed it on the last couple of betas but nothing seems to have fixed it so it might be on my end. 2. Every video in squence that plays has a slight pause for a sec then continues like normal. It only happens on videos before the trailers though, like the intro/outro trivia videos and courtesy videos.

    Local 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.
