Library can't find info for some movies: "No information found for item"

  • Hello,


    I have a fresh install of LibreElec on a RPi3. The Update Library can't find information for some movies whose folder/filenames are perfecly fine, and were present on OSMC just fine, also.


    I have tried the default themoviedb scraper and also Universal Movie Scraper, none can find the information for some of my movies. I tried with "Movies are in separate folders that match the movie title" enabled and disabled. Same results.


    The errors, note that the folder and filenames should be perfectly fine:

    Can someone help me? I prefer LibreELEC over OSMC for my media center.

  • I had one similar problem with this recently.

    My problem was that the Use video tags was enabled. With this option enabled Kodi use information that exists of the media info of the file (if it exist) and not the filename.

    I disabled, updated library and the movies was added again.


    For disabled (if yours are enabled) you need go to Settings > Media > (enable advanced mode) > Videos > Use video tags

  • It seems to me that you need to rename the actual file rather than the folder.

    So: A.Fistful.of.Dollars.1964.1080p.BluRay.HEVC.AC3-SARTRE.mkv

    SB: A Fistful of Dollars (1964) 1080p.mkv

    See: Naming Movies


    You can also use the Kodi addon to scan for missing movies.


    Be aware that theMovieDB and IMDB do not always agree on year - nor spelling.

  • You are correct Iridium , but I assumed (and he said) that the filenames and the folders was named correct, because I had this problem before (and with RARBG files too). With Use video tags enabled Kodi use tags presents in the file instead of the filename, and this files have this tags (you can see this tags using a software like MediaInfo).

    With my issue, logs showed the name of the tag instead of the filename.

  • Thanks edjalmo ! The tip below worked as a charm. Everything is working as expected.
