  1. Sounds like something similar to MoviePoster. https://www.movieposterapp.com/index.html Other things you mentioned should be possible using action files.
  2. Just an update on this one. I upgraded to LibreELEC 9.0.0 which is Kodi 18.0 and the freezing issue is resolved.

    Wanna Play a Movie

    Sorry about the wait. Had computer issues. So I compared your log to mine after turning on debug mode. My first suggestion would be to remove any add-ons that may be giving you a problem. I noticed this, but is likely not what's causing the playback issue with CV. You may want to consider uninstalling Kodi and installing it fresh just to make sure it runs clean natively. 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION: argument "path" for method "XBMCAddon::xbmcvfs::exists" must be unicode or str 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<-- - NOTE: IGNORING THIS CAN LEAD TO MEMORY LEAKS!

At first I thought it may have been the file name giving CV an issue, but it looks like you've tried other movies without brackets, etc. I can't honestly see where the issue is. I've posed up an example of what mine looks like for comparison, but I'm running a newer version of Kodi on a different OS so I'm not sure how helpful it will be. kodi_cv_log__kodi.log.txt

    That should work. I'll have to run mine at home and do a comparison so I know what to look for.

    That is odd. Maybe you can pull some logs and we can take a look?
  6. Well, doesn't get much simpler than that. You're not using any kind of symbolic links in your setup are you? Is CV and your bumpers, etc. all local to the HTPC or are you hosting them from a share?

    Okay, I think CV should be compatible since Kodi 14. So everything is playing fine with exception of your feature module using the default Kodi skin and launcher? The reason I ask is because you mentioned CV doesn't work at all with the Back Row skin, which I'm not familiar with. My suggestion would be try to get it working with the default skin first, then try and transition to another. It may not be supported by a particular skin.

    What version of Kodi?
  9. Are you running this on a Shield or PC based HTPC? What version of Kodi?
  10. When you run CV for the first time it should create a default directory structure for you. You can then just add a directory, put your files in there, then point the video module to that directory. That's how I run a few of mine.

    Video Bumpers way to loud

    It's because you have pass-through set in Kodi for audio. Kodi can't control the volume of audio that is just being passed directly to the AVR for decoding.

    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    Agreed. I'm wondering how many people are part of the development "team". We have several talented people who create content for CV in regards to bumpers, trivia slides, etc. but how many have direct contact with the developer other than Ragnarok? We've got a great community going on here with members helping each other out, but if CV doesn't work with the latest version of Kodi, then it's going to become deprecated and interest is naturally going to wane. That would be a shame as I know a lot of work has gone into CV and those of use who use it really enjoy that, "At home theater experience". I'm not trying to be apathetic to Rags' situation and hope those medical issues haven't taken a turn for the worse. I wish he or whomever afflicted the speediest recovery.

    trailers .nfo files

    I'm pretty sure that's referring to the .nfo file of your feature. Meaning if you are playing a horror film, you can have it stream horror trailers or if you have a PG film, it will stream PG rated trailers. The .nfo file should be in the directory with your feature film along with it's artwork, etc.

    Apple Trailers issue

    Can you stream trailers normally without buffering on a different system on the same network as your HTPC? If so, it could be a setting. If I recall, there is an option where you can set the resolution of the trailers. It's been a while since I've run trailers. If streaming to another system causes the same issue, it could be that your ISP or local network is having an issue. I doubt Apple is going to have bandwidth issues with their site.

    I’m new here and need serious help!

    Same thing in the below thread: I've confirmed that I am able to access the files at Executive Producer membership level. One of the Administrators will likely need to look into a permissions issue.
