1 Introduction

Things you should know about scraping metadata:

  • Kodi obtains artwork and metadata from 3rd party sites that kodi has no control over. This means Kodi must abide by the scraping conditions set by those owners of those sites

Kodi has the ability to display movie information and artwork for your video collection. This information and artwork comes from 3rd party sites run by the community for enjoyment by all. As these sites are outside the control of Kodi, it is imperative that your video files are named correctly to ensure an accurate match with the listings at the scraper sites.
