Hi there,

since Germany moved to HEVC with DVB-T2, whenever I add a recorded Movie to MovPic the Video Codec is filled with "v_mpegh/iso/hevc". This makes it impossible for it to have a corresponding Logo in the GUI and I have to manually change every movie I add to just "hevc".

I suppose it's just the normal output of MediaInfo for that Codec, but can there be anything done to override it and have a filename-friendly Codec-Value by default?

    I've got HEVC and 4K detection for skin working fine in MP-TVSeries, and Moving-Pictures.

    I decided to make them "pop" out more than the default skin, so I personally went with a blue HEVC logo, and a bright yellow 4K logo. Feel free to use the default `hevc.png` and `2160p.png` images if you prefer default look.

    Was able to play with size/aspect-ratio and placement with the Moving-Pictures skin, but not with MP-TVSeries, and haven't taken then time yet to fix that with transparent canvas padding. The following will work as-is, but I planned to submit this properly with adjusted images to the GitHub repositories of the respective plugin.

    Copy the attachments as follows:

    <skin folder>\Media\logos\resolution\4K.png
    <skin folder>\Media\logos\video\hevc2.png

    <skin folder>\Media\TVSeries\Logos\4K.png
    <skin folder>\Media\TVSeries\Logos\hevc2.png​

    And then make the following skin changes (they are for Titan Extended, but should work for most other skins with minor adjustments for MovPic placement by paying attention to the existing posX/posY of the entries above):

    TVSeries.SkinSettings.xml (parts in bold are changed)

    Thank you, @RoChess

    Maybe not the cleanest solution, but a workaround I can live with. I modified my skinfiles accordingly, so hopefully the next Movie I add will have all those fancy Logos right from the start. (y)

    I will update the MovingPictures mediainfo parsing to detect HEVC and set that as the VideoCodec. That will allow you to simply drop in a logo without using a string.contains skin expressions.
    Please expand the scan on audio information as well then for "Atmos".

    Original string is something like "E-AC-3+Atmos / E-AC-3" or "TrueHD+Atmos / TrueHD / AC-3", and then the "Atmos" part gets lost with the codec showing up as just "E-AC-3" or "TrueHD".

    The '+' character is allowed in filenames, so "E-AC-3+Atmos.png" and "TrueHD+Atmos.png" should work fine.

    I'm personally fine with "Atmos.png" taking precedence for both (and others) if that is easier.

    Not sure if DTS-X is covered by default, and I can't look at HTPC right now.

    @ltfearme, I got a few test files I can throw at it, if you have like a compiled test version of MovPic so I can look at logs to see what the detected, and create PNG files as needed.
