I notice that the extras folder is at the same level as all your episodes. This is just a guess really, but you might try putting the episodes in a folder (Season 01, Season 02, etc) so that the episodes are one level below the Extras folder. That's the way I have my TV extras setup. Also allows me to have extras that only appear for single seasons. As I said, just a guess.

It should work from the TV Show info page (That's where I always call mine up from!) Maybe try 2 things:
1) Does it work in confluence?
2) Can you generate a debug log (Please remember to enable logging in VideoExtras as well)

Thought could be helpful to mention:
Aeon Nox 5 has issues with TvTunes and VideoExtras when in TV Shows only, at either all seasons' level or individual seasons' level only (episode level works fine, as you noticed). Their current versions aren't 100% supported by the skin. Issues related namely to:

1) When calling extra add-ons via + sign, any theme playing via TvTunes stops when the contextual menu pops-up. This pop-up is the one you use for selecting TvTunes, VideoExtras or any other add-on, with the purpose of reducing cluttering in the main Info screen. This sudden break suggests calling + somehow stops the mentioned scripts running. For instance, if TvTunes is playing a theme you should be able to listen to it playing even when browsing the detailed extras list of VideoExtras, and this simply isn't happening; VideoExtras not being able to present the extras videos seems to be an effect of lack of support in the skin, and you may want to track down possible reasons in Aeon Nox 5's use of custom_1119_ExtrasDialog.xml

2) TvTunes scraper will however work if it is selected; you will be able to fetch themes, however VideoExtras will show no extras, which is the issue you are experiencing, Magic815. You can see it works perfectly in other skins, and under 'movies' section in Aeon 5 itself, which again suggests this is a skin-related issue.

Recommendation: seek for assistance in Aeon 5 forum. Perhaps these 2 standing issues could be ironed by BigNoid.

Best,

This is a question for Aeon Nox I guess.

Rob -

I ran it with Confluence, but it still doesn't have an Extras button on the info pages (and this time, it doesn't even show up on the specific episode info page either). I ran debugging. What's the best way to post the entire log file? I'm new at this, haha. Looking at the file, though, I think this is the part that might be helpful:

Quote:21:56:39 T:4596 DEBUG: script.videoextras: VideoExtrasService: tvshows detected: Firefly = E:\_TV Shows_\Firefly\

21:56:39 T:4596 DEBUG: script.videoextras: VideoExtrasService: Extras found for (16) Firefly

And this is what that log looks like when I run it in Aeon Nox:

Just let me know if you need the full log files and how I can best post them. Thanks!

Hi Magic815,

It looks like VideoExtras is finding the extras file, so as capfuturo highlighted - it looks like a skin problem. (For Confluence you will have to edit the skin in order to get VideoExtras to show anything).

It may be best for you to post this on the Skin's forum thread.

Thanks

Rob

Rob - Yea, I'm thinking this is mainly a skin issue and have posted in their thread and hope to get some responses.

However, I did notice one other thing and I'm not sure if it's a skin issue as well.

If I go into TV Shows > Right click on Firefly > Select TV Show Information > Cursor over to the plus sign > Select VideoExtras
then it says "No Extras Found."

But if I go into Videos > Files > TV Shows > Right click on Firefly > Select TV Show Information > Cursor over to the plus sign > Select VideoExtras
the extras are listed and can be played.

As far as you can tell, is that a skin issue?

Yes, I think that will also be a skin issue - it does seem to work OK when I try it in confluence.
