Xbmc updating movie info
However, during your search for movie and TV streaming add-ons, you’ll come across two types: official Kodi add-ons that can be accessed through the Official Kodi Add-on Repository, and add-ons that are made available through a large number of third-party repositories.
Third-party add-ons carry significant risks over those found in the Official Kodi Add-on Repository.
My Openelec build was corrupted (Long story, I booted to another OS from a USB, it tried to mount the volume and corrupted it). I have my video library back, I can see and play all of the titles, but none of the thumbnails are being displayed (The thumbnail directory was the 1% that I couldn't restore).
I tried scanning for new content, and it successfully picked up the movies that I added since the backup was done, and it displays their thumbnails OK.
Just go to your source and click on "change content" and set it to none then click OK. Refreshing the info is the same as re-scraping the info.
It will ask you if you want to remove all items from the library. Then go back in and reset the content back and click OK. One note - this will screw up the recently added listing as all the content will show as newly added, but watched status and play counts and such stay correct. XBMC will either scrape from the internet or a local nfo file if one is available.
Third-party add-ons can be hijacked by hackers and used to spy on user streaming activities.
They can also carry other forms of malware which can be silently pushed on to users even if the add-on was installed from a seemingly trustworthy source.
Although it was originally created for the Microsoft Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC), the software has continued to evolve – spawning a community of its own.Kodi, the free and open source home theater software, allows you to stream media from a huge range of sources.
