Generated folder tags are missing from other videos with sidecar NFO metadata

See original GitHub issue

Trying to use local directories. Currently adding as Other Videos All files have an NFO named the exact same as the media file and generated in the Kodi format. It’s fully readable by all my media servers (Emby, Jellyfin, Plex and Stash).

When I scan a local directory, I get the following error in logs

[16:51:29 WRN] Error reading actor content from NFO 
System.Xml.XmlException: '=' is an unexpected token. The expected token is ';'. Line 9, position 80.

The logs don’t actually show which NFO throws the error, but it doesn’t appear to be reading the data from any of them. I’ve checked various ones and cannot find one with an “=” in the referenced position. It also does not generating the tags based on the folder structure.

Fixed - merge other video folder tags with nfo tags #1144

jasongdovecommented, Feb 3, 2023

Yes, that is expected. Other video libraries were created for filler type content that isn’t necessarily movies or episodes. NFO support was added to allow additional search capabilities (e.g. some users find it helpful for sporting events) but the other videos UI has remained minimal.

I’ll give it some more thought.
