Death streams thumbnails
« on: September 20, 2017, 05:48:10 pm »
Decided to try this fork as SALTS has been great in the past, but I'm not getting thumbnails. After installing I copied SALTS settings into Death streams to save time. This seemed to work and looks like SALTS apart from a couple of scrapers, however I'm only seeing thumbs in MNE.

I've tried clearing image cache and running auto config with no luck, maybe it's the image proxy?

It could be something simple, I still have SALTS installed at the moment

Last update was 56 minutes ago. Maybe you need to update. Plus getting your own API keys can never hurt and you can use the same key across all your addons. I'm talking about TMDB, TVDB, etc

I'm on v3.3.0, should have mentioned Fanart.tv API is entered, I'm not entirely sure what to enter on registration forms for TMDB / TVDB. Before seeing your reply, uninstalled SALTS along with TK common libraries. Restarted Kodi, ran DStreams auto config, clear images before finally trying refresh images from within movie section with no luck.

Maybe not uninstalling SALTS first caused an issue?

Have you cleared your thumbnails and the textures13 lately?

I had deleted them through fire TV guru add on, did it manually with file manager in system settings this morning with no luck. Tried getting an API key for TMDB but it's not working without errors and I'd rather not use personal details. I know my fanart key should be right but it has no affect. Checked it with Bubbles verification, and entered in SALTS carefully.

I have not installed the addon yet so I don't know if it's even working. When getting a TMDB API you can make up a name and address and get a new gmail to use as your email for registration. I think the TMDB is one of the more important APIs to have imo.

Ended up using my details as their otherwise private member accounts and I use a VPN with debrid. Couldn't get it to work without error until I did, tested it successfully with SALTS after restoring from a backup.

Now that I have thumbs working with SALTS, I'll try D Streams again over the next few days. It's good to see someone talking up SALTS as a fork, it's been my main add on and I was hoping someone would continue it.

I tried to install this from the Colossus repo but it keeps giving me an error.

It it safe to install this addon after all?
