Change Artwork Naming Convention?

Post by leejk »

Hi,

I am using the artowrk downloader script: filebot -script fn:artwork.tmdb

If creates subfolders named "backdrops". the problem with this is that some Kodi skins look for folders named "extrafanart". Is there a way to have the script create this structure instead?

thx

No, not without modifying the script. I suggest running your own script that renames "backdrops" folders to "extrafanart" after the filebot/artwork call.

Could this be a feature request then for the script? Perhaps by passing it a flag to do either. It seems with Kodi, most things use the "extrafanart" scheme.

Try the latest revision:

Code: Select all

filebot -script dev:artwork.tmdb /path --def extras=y

Thx for the update, it works great! I did notice though that I had to delete all previous artwork and nfo files, or else the script would skip it. Is there a way to force an update, or will I just have to manually clean out the old?

You'll have to manually clean out the old. Using the override option will solve the problem somewhat, but not completely as you'll still have to delete the old backdrops folder.

For permanence in my scripts, will this always use the dev prefix or will it be moved to fn?

thx
