The new dmg fixes this by adding a symlink internal to the app from python3.8->python2.6 (a packaging hack until my new ticket gets resolved...)

Sorry John I’ve csused confusion

I downloaded the correct dmg
I ran it from the dmg and had no meta data work
I (to avoid the alias stuff) copied it and pasted to my local Applicions. Which turns out to be an alias to /Applications with local permissions. Meta data now worked.

There is an issue however

I’m using MythCenter Wide theme, but I tried a few and they are all the same.

If you pause playback you get a usage bar and the time displayed.
My build (using your ansible script), your earlier builds my linux frontends DO show this behaviour.
The recent metadata fixes DO NOT show anything on screen during pause.
