Plugin: MediaMark [internal] (WDLXTV 0.4.5.1+)   

Postby recliq » Tue Dec 14, 2010 12:54 am

Hi all,

i rewrote Kryptos MediaMark and integrated it into wdlxtv.
It is disabled by default since it needs to be configured to work properly.

Changes:
- prepared various XML files to include image for MediaMark (so it can be changed by osd.bin)
- folders get marked if all contained media files are marked
- WEC plugin (for configuration)

Configuration:
- enable the plugin in WEC
- make sure you don't have any old version of MediaMark in your .wdtvext-plugins folder!

If you want to keep your old marks, make sure you copy mediamark.log file to a safe place where it can be used with the
new plugin and point MEDIAMARK_DIR to the dir containing the file. (thx to monkmad for pointing this out)


- configure MEDIAMARK_DIR with a path to store the MediaMark DB.
- reboot


You can store your MediaMark DB on network drives, though this is a bit tricky:
- create a seperate share for your MediaMark log file
- xmount this share R/W, you should use a hidden file as mountpoint, so the wd doesn't create a .wd_tv folder...
(eg. xmount MYNAS:/mediamark .mediamark nfs "rw")
- set MEDIAMARK_DIR to this dir
Code: Select all
config_tool -c MEDIAMARK_DIR='/tmp/media/usb/.mediamark'

Nice work, recliq.

Though, it may be beneficial (especially for noobs) to share a few instructions. Maybe you already have, but I found it out the hard way, so posting it here for others.

Issue: After upgrading to 4.5.1 and removing the external MediaMark plugin (as the release notes say it shouldn't be present), I found that though the mark functionality worked, all my previous "marks" had dissapeared! This was a big issue for me as I have lots of series.

After comparing the code for the external and internal plugins, I figured it out. The "mediaMark.log" file, which contains all the entries, needs to be preserved and passed over to the internal plugin. In my config, there was no entry for MEDIAMARK_DIR and the file had been created in the MediaMark plugin (external) folder. Fortunately, I had merely moved my MediaMark folder instead of deleting it. All that I needed to do was to set the config value to point to a persistent location and copy the log file there. Then reboot and voila, all the hard work of the previous few months was back in the form of little green men, er.. marks!

Hope this helps anyone who is in the same predicament.

...nice attitude, I give you another integrated plugin and you have no other comment than requesting the next?

It's possible to intergrae MN, but I don't see it happen.
Current version of MN is a all-in-wonder plugin, big and sometimes slow with lots of functions most people will never use/need.
I asked sailort if I can take old MN v1 and intergrate it but he didn't want that... so you have to keep it as external plugin for now.

I deleted the external plugin in the .wdtvext-plugins folder but I can't find where in the WEC this internal one can be activated. I have 1.02.21 WDLXTV 0.4.5.3
thanks

Well, more than just my movie sheets that is wrong. I don' t have Xpert underWDTVExt Features tab. I only have WDTVExt, CDManager, Debug adn Movie Sheets. Why would I be missing that?
