Now Playing and Default posters

Sun May 17, 2020 4:47 pm

My system is running perfectly. I have an Emby Server back-end and Kodi Clients. Coming Soon, Now Playing and Intermission all work fine and movie posters from the Kodi Client show up ok.

What I have noticed and I won't say its a problem because it maybe how its been designed is that when using the default posters in MovieNow, Now playing doesn't work. Secondly I have moved a load of animated posters into Custom Folder 1 but I can't get any of them to show up - is it because they are all .gif Do MovieNow posters have to be .jpg

Appreciate the app. Thanks

1) Default Custom Poster is separate view and support only coming soon! - it's not connected to KODI view
2) Custom folders recognize without issue jpg , gif , png files. - maybe your animated posters is not native gif files? or has wrong color format? , send me one poster to check it out....warning all this movie posters you find online its not HD (1080x1920) , so it looks bad...

Do you have any script/cronjob that would switch MovieNow from Custom Folders to Kodi if any function in Kodi is activated like PLAY, PAUSE, REW etc. This way I could run my custom folders and only activate Kodi folders for Now Playing and Intermission.
