Get Video Metadata on scan


is it possible to get the video metadata by scan the library or by opening a folder? At the moment i only get them when i start playing a movie but i want them to be displayed before that. Is there an option or an addon to get theese infos?

We will add this to our skin soon


Hi Sam, the problem isnt that it isnt displayed in your theme, cause im using another theme ( Arctic Zephyr ). The system doesnt recognize the metadata until you play the movie. So i wish that he crawls the metadata on updating the library or by opening the folder.

Try enabling ‘Extract video data and thumbnails’

Be warned, can cause performance issues

Allready searched that option yesterday but couldnt find it … where can i find that option?

You need to enable ‘Expert’ settings

Thanks Sam, i will give it a try :wink:
