Hi guys.

Can someone please point me to the location to disable Kodi metadata?

 

On the Kodi tab under Metadata the narrative includes the statement: "To enable or disable Kodi metadata, use the Advanced tab to configure options for your media types."

 

However, I can't find any relevent settings under Library > Advanced or under the top-level Advanced section.

Thanks for your help.

It is under each metadata service if you want to read and/or write nfo files.

This is correct.  However nfo is now our default format.

I think to "disable" kodi metadata, you just need to uncheck the boxes on the kodi tab in your screen shot:

 

Save image paths within nfo files
Enable path substitution
Copy extrafanart into extrathumbs

 

This is what I have done and it keeps the metadata cleaner.

Thanks guys, that's helpful.

Can I suggest updating the text from my screenshot to something like:

"Kodi metadata can be enabled or disabled for each media type. This is configured on the Metadata > Services tab. Select the media type to configure from the 'Customize for Media Type" drop list then check/uncheck "Nfo" under "Metadata Savers"."

 

Thanks again.

It's a lot easier to do what MrFibbles said to do I think.  It automatically unchecks the nfo box under each media type without having to select movies, music, etc and unchecking the nfo box.  Just do it once :)
