Hey all

How can I get Kodi to use the Actor Thumbnails saved to C:\program data\mediabrowser\imagesbyname\

Thanks
Oz

Google pretty much says you may need to edit the advancedsetting.xml.

I assume local paths are the issue.

Quote:
you can manually add a path substitution in the advanced settings i've found as a workaround
for kodi/xbmc
just add -

<pathsubstitution>
<substitute>
<from>E:\ImagesByName\People\</from>
<to>SMB://your.ip.address/ImagesByName/People/</to>
</substitute>
</pathsubstitution>


I am not a Kodi users, but does Kodi not read the image path?

Code:
   <actor>
      <name>Zac Efron</name>
      <role>Mike O'Donnell</role>
      <thumb>\\MyServer\Emby-Server\Metadata\People\Z\Zac Efron\folder.jpg</thumb>
   </actor>




Note I use a network path instead of local path in MCM Artwork menu.

Hmmmmmm

I thought it may have something to do with JSON-RPC API Integration, of which I have zero understanding.

"I am not a Kodi user, but does Kodi not read the image path?"

I'm not sure mate, but your config changes make sense. I use a SAMBA path from KODI to my server as I have KODI, PS3, Bubble and Foobar in different rooms, keeping thumbs, artwork and media local but as you describe, the correct path is probably the key.

Thankyou, I will give it a spin.
