When playing local files on kodi, yatse will display in the remote/notification: show/movie title, episode title.
It’s different when using kodi to stream from legitimate sources (Netflix/Disneyplus). When I do this, the remote/notification will not show the show title but only the episode title.
Furthermore when using tasker to fetch yatse variables, most of them are blank when using streaming sources in kodi.
Returns all values for local files.
But returns the following for streaming in kodi:
3,plugin://plugin.video.netflix/play/show/80057281/season/80077209/episode/80077368/?profile_guid=xx,Arch2,true,%imdb,DirectoryItem,%plot,0.0,-1,-1,%show_title,%thumbnail,1x01. Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will Byers,true,true
Notice that %show_title, among other variables is missing. %show_episode and %show_season are also missing. Netflix addon conveniently puts the season and episode number in the title. Disneyplus does not. For example Moon knight in Disneyplus addon returns these variables:
3,plugin://slyguy.disney.plus/?_=play&_play=1&content_id=29853478,Arch2,true,%imdb,DirectoryItem,%plot,0.0,-1,-1,%show_title,%thumbnail,The Goldfish Problem,true,true
Is there a way I can make Yatse/tasker fetch the missing variables when using streaming addons in kodi? I kind of want to mitigate using/creating databases where I can link ‘id numbers’ to actual titles.
By the way Yatse is a great app and I have used it for I don’t know how many years. The things mentioned above are very minor issues I have with Yatse.
