I have the following XBMC installations:
- 2x on a Mac: (XBMC 11.0-PRE GIT:20111213
- 1x on Windows 7: (XBMC 11.0 PRE-11.0 Git:20111210)
- 1x on yaVDR 0.4, Ubuntu 11.04: (XBMC 2:11.0-pvr+pipelka-eden~git20111022)
Only one of the Mac's is doing the scraping. The one thing I was struggling first was the movie path in row c22 but since I'm using smb for all XBMC machines every instance understands where the files are (e.g. smb://TOWER/Kino/Mad Money (2008).mkv).
Here is the description how I centralized my library as well as the thumbnails: LINK
It works very well with both of the Mac's (nfs, symlink etc). On the Windows machine I' using pathsubstitution in the respective advancedsettings file:
All machine are using the library according to the above guide (...which is based on other guides you can find on several web pages) - except the yaVDR XBMC. I'm using the same advancesettings but yaVDR doesn't seem to use the database (however there is no local database either).
Right now I do have 3 databases on my server: xbmc_video, xbmc_video58, MyVideos56. Here are the settings - at least the thumbnails sharing is working (the part between the videodatabase is the same on every machine):
If yaVDR would also use the database I would be a happy camper. I might just be the older build? Can anyone confirm?
Maybe the rest of the information is helpful in your case?
