Custom Tooltips/TheaterView Screens
« on: February 16, 2023, 04:18:35 pm »

Split from the Original Thread

Here you can find custom TheaterView (& Tootips) screens using MC's video analysis fields as a base and extending that with data scraped with MCUtils and ZRatings (Thanks guys for these tools!)

Please read Original Thread for some basic information how to do these. Some of the info there might be outdated though but core stuff still stands

This thread is not intended for my monologues so feel free to share your own stuff here also. Would be cool if you do!

Wow,
The similar movies section looks really nice.
Looking forward to implement that into my Theater View.

Just wanted to give a heads up that McUtils has been updated, it can now get images from Fanart.tv.  This allows you to get Logos (my favorite), banners, posters, backgrounds and more.  Works for both TV and movies.

It's a pretty simple config for this.  So, you set up your config which is basically saying where you want the files saved and what name you want them saved as.  Then running the command to get the image that you want.

As an example, here is a part of my config file
Code: [Select]
#Use this path for testing
        #download_location => '$DESKTOP/mcutils_data/fanart_images',

#Use this path for production
download_location => '[FanartPath]',


            movies => {

                # default max number of movie category images
                max_images => 1,

                categories => {
                    hdmovieclearart => {
                        # overrides default max_images above for this category
# max_images => 3,
                        # overrides the name of this image download name to "movie_hdca"
                    name       => 'clearart',
                    },
                    hdmovielogo     => {
name       => 'logo',
},
                    movieart        => {
name       => 'fanart',
},
                    moviebackground => {
name       => 'landscape',
},
moviebanner     => {
name       => 'banner',
},
                    movielogo       => {
name       => 'logo2',
},
                    movieposter     => {
name       => 'poster',
},
                    moviethumb      => { },
name       => 'thumb',
                },
            },
            tv => {
                # default max number of tv category images
                max_images => 1,

                categories => {
                    seasonthumb     => { },
                    hdtvlogo        => {
name       => 'logo',
},

That [FanartPath] field up above is a custom field the I created that saves the images into the correct folder for my setup.  It has this value:

Code: [Select]
regex([Filename (path)], /#(^[^\\]+?\\[^\\]+?\\)#/,-1,0)[R1]
Mine is more complicated than necessary, MrC simplified things after I had made that.  You can now tell the script where you want things stored for movies and TV separately, my custom field works for both movies and TV.

After your config is setup then you just run commands like these

Code: [Select]
pscriptor fanarttv --image hdtvlogo --type tv -VV
pscriptor fanarttv --image hdmovielogo --type movie -VV
pscriptor fanarttv --image movieposter --type movie -VV

Something new with this script you can substitute the type with "fromsubtype"  which will use the Media Sub Type to determine if your file is a movie or TV show.  This allows you to select both movie and TV shows at the same time and then you can run something like this

Code: [Select]
pscriptor fanarttv --image moviebanner --image tvbanner:3 -FF type fromsubtype
Which will pull down however many moviebanners you've set in your config for any movie files selected and pull down 3 tvbanners for any TV shows selected.

It's more the Configuration V_XXXXX stuff, I have no idea what is going on there.

Also, what do you mean by "Replacing hard coded values with actual ratings".  How does zStats come into play?

Also, what do you mean by "Replacing hard coded values with actual ratings".
First proto was just using hard coded rating values to visualize the thingy. Now it fetches ratings from the library at the same time it fetches the poster paths



I'm using fieldquery() to get all movies from my library which are recommended for the movie to be shown and this threesome is saved to zsRecommendations field. As this is very slow operation I can use zstats to do this calculation in the background or off hours for every movie.
Alternatively it can be calculated per movie when entering the movie screen. It takes 1-2 seconds for movie in my library. Smaller libraries are quicker of course. So configure variables are e.g. for those choices.

I use invisible CONFIGURATION expression at the start of the screen so all the options are quick to be found.
e.g. if I want to use zstats to get me the recommendations fields list(posterpath__imdb rating__tmdb rating) I can set v_RECOMMENDATIONS_IMAGES_ZSTATS to 1

Other current options

Show subtitles tech icons flag. If primary is not found then show secondary
Code: [Select]
Save(Finnish, v_PRIMARY_LANG)/
Save(English, v_SECONDARY_LANG)/
Set 1 to show posters instead of textual recommendations
Code: [Select]
Save(1, v_USE_RECOMMENDATIONS_IMAGES)/Set 1 to not calculate posterpaths and ratings live. (zstats runs will update the data)
Code: [Select]
Save(0, v_RECOMMENDATIONS_IMAGES_ZSTATS)/Set 1 to use thumbnail posters for (if big images seems to slow it down). you need to have [image file]-thumb.jpg images for this so default is 0 so basic [image file] value is used
Code: [Select]
Save(0, v_THUMBS)/do FieldQuery() only every 30 days so the time consuming calculation is not done every time you enter the movie screen so there is no delay in x days
Code: [Select]
Save(30, v_RECOMMENDATIONS_SCRAPE_EXPIRY)/
Use normal actor images from tmdb or cast images for specific movie
Code: [Select]
If([Cast Images,0],
    Save(E://.MC Images//Movies//Clean([Original Title] /([Year]/))//Cast//, v_ACTOR_IMAGE_PATH),
    Save(E://.MC Images//Actors//, v_ACTOR_IMAGE_PATH)
)

Does that clear it?

I also use invisible varible definitions to create color schemes so i can change text colors and sizes etc from one place and only once

It helps a little.

To be clear, my lack of understanding is due to my ignorance and not your explanations. 

I wasn't familiar with the fieldquery() function, I've never seen CONFIGURATION stuff before and I definitely have some reading to do about zstats.  As, I said, I am quite out of the loop ;D

That is just something I invented to help my maintenance as actor folders etc might be different for different user. so it is easier to save path to variable and create one place all these variables are set

ZStats is great to do time consuming calculations in the background or beforehand

@Lepa. I have a question related to your view. When you add the similar artist on that info panel, you have the image and belllow you have their names included. Can you share the expression or how you did to add their names bellow? I have something similar on my info for artist but i struggle to add their names bellow the image related to the specific artist.
Thanks.

I map image path and artist name to a list (__ as separator). Of course you could parse artist from created image path later also but i find this more convenient. It is using IsMissing() so local folder for images is preferred so there won't be any hickups
Code: [Select]
Save(E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square\, v_Square)/
Save(ListLimit(ListShuffle(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing([v_Square][L1].jpg),,[v_Square][L1].jpg__[L1]),8,[AMG Artist SimilarTo]),3)),5), v_similar)

Then I parse v_similar map with listmix() to display images and second listmix() to ouput artist names using mono font on second row

@Lepa. I'm trying to understand your expression but I don't think to understand everything there. Can you explain to mere human being :). So far I try to follow your steps with my fields but nothing.
That code is on a field or smartlist? What v_square mean?
Hopefully you will give me a hand with this.
Thanks

v_square is just variable where i save file path for my square formatted artist images.
Path is assigned to it in the first line. I use is so actual expression where it is used is easier to read and also changing path is easier as it is separated from the longish expression.

Second Line is where I collect all the artist images which are similar to artist selected. Result i.e. artist image paths is saved to variable v_similar again so it is easier to user later when outputting images to screen

Code: [Select]
ListMix(If(IsMissing([v_Square][L1].jpg),,[v_Square][L1].jpg__[L1]),8,[AMG Artist SimilarTo]Parse through [AMG Artist SimilarTo] list and try to find artist image for every list item. If image is found then get filename for it and add artist name after it as sub list using __ as sub list separator. So this should return you something like
Code: [Select]
E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square\The Beatles.jpg__The Beatles;E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square\Bob Dylan.jpg__Bob Dylan
For the result I do ListClean to remove any empty items from the list and then ListLimit to 5 and save the end result to v_similar variable which now holds 0-5 Artist image path__Artist items

Then you can use v_similar in the next ListMix to output actual images to screen:
Code: [Select]
ListMix(<img src"ListITem([L1],0,__)">,8,[v_similar])and under it you can print artist names yet another list mix. Repeat x there to help you align the text. You can dim it later or use space instead of x when you got your alignment right. I would also do v_imagewidth variable (- length of artist name) to easily change number there and then see the result and change the value again....and again....again
Code: [Select]
Save(30, v_imagewidth)/
ListMix(ListITem([L1],1,__)Repeat(x,Math([v_imagewidth] - Length([L1]))),8,[v_similar])

As said you need to use mono font so you can at least theoritically ;D  align text with images and also image width should be static. (that's why I'm using square images)

If you could share what you have it is I guess easier to follow when you are doing your own thing. So if you have e.g part where you print out images. Or if you don't have that then if you share the path for your artist images we can start working on those. Also if you don't have zelda, you should get it.

Funny to realize how differently people will solve the same puzzles  :) I would however suggest to change your artist expression a little. To me at least to make it more simple also. Lets see...

To achieve same thing you now have we shall use listmix(). Source for the function is [amg artist similar] and mode 8 to not unescape after everything. Listmix() will loop every entry in [amg artist similar] and [L1] is the placeholder for listitem currently being handled in first section of the listmix(). So ListMix([L1],8,[amg artist similar]) would print the every item in the [amg artist similar] as we print [L1] in the first section there. But back to puzzle..

So this should do the same as the one you posted.
Code: [Select]
Replace(ListMix(<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg" size="160x160">,8,[amg artist similar]),;,)
Explanation: It will go through every item in the [amg artist similar] and outputs every time
Code: [Select]
<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg" size="160x160">L1 being [amg artist similar item] currently in the loop. Replace will just remove list separator chars i.e ; as we only want to see images


One extra thing you could do is to verify that you actually have the image for artist in question. So you could first check the file and and it to output only if file exist.
Code: [Select]
If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg),,<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg" size="160x160">)
When added this to listmix() it would look like this:
Code: [Select]
Replace(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg),,<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg" size="160x160">),8,[amg artist similar]),;,)
If you don't do the check then aligning text later on will be very hard.

Still following?

E: Doesn't take care if artist have characters which are not filename friendly that can be sorted out though

Im doing what you told me there and my result is this

Is the same result like my expression but simpler than mine. I never use listmix() so I have to spend more time to experiment with this function. As you can see none of my print image don't have any names underneath. Do I do something wrong?!

You did everything right :) It was just first step to output images as it is essential to understand what listmix() does. So now it takes every artist one by one [L1] from the list and wraps every item under <img>. In principle you can now add another listmix() in the next row to ouput the names, just this time output the item as it is so ouput just [L1] instead of wrapping it under <img>

The whole thing is then like this. Note that it does two ismissing() file checks so it isn't optimal but to just to keep this simpler
Code: [Select]
Replace(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg),,<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg" size="150x150">),8,[amg artist similar]),;,)
Replace(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Similar\[L1].jpg),,<font face="courier" size="92">If(Compare(Length([L1],>,23)),Mid([L1],0,20).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25-Length([L1]))))<//font>),8,[amg artist similar]),3),;,)

Also note that your image has width of 150 pixels so your font needs to be small so you can squeeze the name for that length. Also you need mono font to be able align the text with all the images. ....with this font size artist name cannot be over 25 chars or the align will yet again be broken. Artist name cropping untested...

E: oops messed up with copy paste of expressions

Is there an "easy" way to get all of this put together?  With Kodi everything is just kind of there but here it seems like a lot of work to get it together.  I read these posts (which I greatly appreciate) but it all seems to assume that I know where to start (which I don't).  Is there a guide somewhere or just a template that I can copy?

Edit - I have the theme installed but it is missing all of the artwork.

I have everything checked and updated in ZRatings but how does JRiver know where to find the actors and posters?  Also how do I get all of the logos?

Note I am using MC31, is that my issue?

Unfortunately it isn't a one click process.
Older mega thread also describes the steps a bit https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,119385.0.html.

As it isn't one click process it is kind of hard to write any one guide fits for all type instructions. It is also time consuming without real knowledge if it is even useful to anybody or if there is an audience at all. In my template examples I use invisible rows to configure the paths, fonts and colours as much as I can so it could be adjusted more easily for different tastes.

I suggest to ask for help here if you are stuck. Maybe paste your current file info panel setup and paths where your images are. At least for me it is most of times quicker to try to help like that than trying to write some subjective documentation what i have done

Here is exactly what I did (I am actually starting over and I will document the steps here), any help is appreciated.

1. Downloaded both Movies (no cover).txt and Tooltip Images v1.3.0.zip from the first post.
2. Select all and copied Movies (no cover).txt to the clipboard.
3. JRiver Theaterview Customize File Info Panel, manage templates, add template from clipboard, manage move template to top, change primary language to English.
4. JRiver Theaterview, theme, install theme from zip file, selected and installed Tooltip Images v1.3.0.zip.

All of the logos appear to be installed here - C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 31\Skins\Theater View\Themes\Tooltip images v1.3.0 - Edit for others who read the folders with the logos in them need to be installed here - C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 31\Data\Tooltip

Edit for others reading this, see reply #36 for how to add the version field and reply #40 for what you can do with it.  You right click on the file in JRiver and choose tag, then scroll to advanced, version, and you can fill things out there if you want to add them.

Actors are here - C:\Users\dishn\Documents\Actors and posters are here - C:\Users\dishn\Documents\Posters (from ZRatings) but I see no way to point to them?

Info panel is attached, please let me know if you see any issues and how to fix.  Thank you very much.

Logo images should be inside "C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 31\Data\Tooltip\" directory.

I think my released "no cover template" doesn't include actor photos. I can add those to next version if you like. New version will also designed to be used using 100% windows scaling Current version should look best at 80% scaling. There is also some changes how to show similar movies in the next version so maybe you should not concentrate on that right now if it doesn't work for you right now

Ah that did it thanks.  I still have an issue next to the title though, it says version?  I would love actor photos if you do it.

Right, I use custom field version to separate different versions of same movie (director's cut etc). That way I don't pollute name fields with all the version data. My guess is that you don't have field called version and MC then just outputs it as a text. Easiest way would be just add that field to your database even if you don't personally use it. It should be  then hidden when empty I think

BTW I'm glad that you were almost able to follow the instructions. I'll add note about image folders if there wasn't any yet. As some things are already so obvious for me I have surely missed some base tips.

Lol sorry but how do I do that?

As far as instructions everything was clear once I read through it except the zip file seems to have automatically put the logos in the wrong spot.  Other than that it was much less intimidating than it appears.  Really appreciate your work here and you sharing it.

Nice! So now that you have the field. If you like you could insert there eg that Theatrical Cut or Extended etc... or just leave it empty

Started to look at the actors. version 1.3 coming up nicely. Unfortunately there is some field changes which were necessary for example making similar movies to be more easy to maintain and prevent duplicates to show up if there were multiple versions of same movie

EDIT: Oh and published v1.2 doesn't yet support similar movies poster images but just outputs names

You have no idea how perfect this is.  Not only for obvious things like Superman II Theatrical vs Donner but I have a ton of 35mm scans that I can now distinguish from their Blu Ray / UHD counterparts.  It will take a little time to organize but in the end be well worth it.

This is the icing on the cake, everything is amazing now.  Hopefully some more MadVR / AVS people find there way over here because this is exactly what everyone has been wanting and with a nicer interface like this along with the recent updates there is no reason left to cling to other clunky solutions.

I actually told you the wrong one its this one -

https://www.1001fonts.com/theater-fonts.html

"Theater"

I played with a few before settling on that but that is the one in my recent pictures.  If you see the Blade in the Dark picture above when I had issues that is Ineptic.

Yes, I noticed that it wasn't the same as in your screenshots. Still a little on fence with the font for headers. Not sure if it is too eye catching and after while becomes too (maybe military) stylish and all I can think of is watching Rambo yet again  ;D

Cast images can now also have role names or the text names can be configured to be hidden if one's images have burnt in texts. Also added option poster to show poster in "no poster theme"  ::)

V1.3 Configurable items now include
Code: [Select]
Save(Finnish, v_PRIMARY_LANG)/
Save(English, v_SECONDARY_LANG)/
Save(1, v_USE_RECOMMENDATIONS_IMAGES)/
Save(0, v_RECOMMENDATIONS_IMAGES_ZSTATS)/
Save(30, v_RECOMMENDATIONS_SCRAPE_EXPIRY)/
Save(E://.MC Images//Actors//, V_ACTOR_IMAGE_PATH)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_TEXT_ROLES)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_TEXT_ACTORS)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_POSTER)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_ACTOR_MODULE)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_RECOMMENDATIONS_MODULE)/
Save(1, v_SHOW_ADDIT_AUDIO_MODULE)

I think that looks amazing.

You have not posted 1.3 yet correct?

Correct. What is done is done. like: main front, actor images and recommendations images. Aligning everything with MC is really time consuming when dealing with changing lengths of eg descriptions but I think I got it mostly right and don't see any more movies which breaks the layout ie Movie name is too up or actor row is cropped or not visible at all. Links are unchanged. I would like create couple of more sections still but haven't figured out how to make nice video+audio+subs details section which would fit this theme also maybe section for other crew members and awards/critic ratings. I may publish what I have though if I don't get inspiration to do those in following days. Kind of need break already.

BTW. If your file naming is consistent you could scrape version data from there and save some manual filling time
