Kodi scraper doesn't seem to be working

Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:25 pm


I'm trying to scrape metadata for NFL Season 2017. I have recordings of games for my favorite team, the Los Angeles Rams. The Kodi scraper returns back to Kodi only the very first "event" for a given date or round. So, for instance, if you look at all the events for NFL Season 2017, the first "event" for Round 1 is New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs. This is the result I always get back even though the filename I'm scraping is NFL 2017-09-10 Los Angeles Rams vs Indianapolis Colts.mp4. The same is true for other "Rounds" (2, 7, 9) where there is more than one "event."

I created an nfo file with the URL of the correct event, but TheSportsDB Kodi scraper doesn't seem to respect/follow those as far as I can tell (unless I'm doing something wrong).

Thanks for reporting, I haven't tried it in a while and didn't write it myself but I will run some tests.

We have NFL updating automatically now so it should work much better :)

I will try it out soon. It may be worth posting on the Kodi forums as well, as more users will see it.
