The FAQ and the WIKI are a good start for new users.

...and what about telling us which files you can't play (or which plugin gives you problems, since you posted this in UMSP section) ?

Then please ask that question in the thread of the respecting plugin.
The plugins are add-ons provided by a many different developers, so posting in the plugin thread
has the best chances for getting some tips or solutions from the author or other users using this plugin.

the bigest question for me is how do i determine which plugin is needed?
how do i find what is missing & where to get it.

@eskay: I have a suggestion to help with dependencies. In plugins which need external components (another plugin or an app.bin), inside _pluginMain() you can simply check for the file you're going to use. E.g:
Code: Select all
if(! -f "/tmp/umsp-plugins/dailymotion/dailymotion.php"){
   //return an error message onscreen
}

r there any video links how to configure wdlxtv 'cause i have checked on youtube and could not find anything worthwhile for configuring it. Its something stange 'cause there are millions of people like me who would love to understand how to hack this or similar devices. but unfortunately we get stuck with the technical terms. but if there are video's made like jailbreaking of iphone and lots of other stuff... then v r all set.

thanks and regards
