    Moving Pictures MP2

    I meant no disrespect, I was only trying to give my perspective on things. It is interesting to me to read about the logic behind the design of MP2, and I think the unified database model along with the importer system is one of the most well designed parts of MP2. But that design does not ease...

    Moving Pictures MP2

    For what what it's worth, these walls of text don't help much. Dir is right, there are better solutions that are more complete that range from free (Plex) to $35 (Chrome Cast). The design decisions that have been made are interesting to me as a software engineer but as a user these are just...

    Latest Release

    Heh, this probably gives me too much of a pass. I have had a lot going on personally lately (several weddings, a funereal, holidays and family stuff) and I have been working on getting a startup off the ground, so I have very little time for Moving Pictures right now. But that shouldn't mean the...

    Custom fields and a batch launch

    There is currently no mechanism to do what you are asking jazzor, it would require a modification or fork of the plugin to make this happen. This is an extremely niche change so I doubt anyone on the team will spend time on this (but I will let others speak for themselves). So your best bet is...

    Scythe42's fixes for 1.4.0

    If it shouldn't be called externally then the method should be marked internal. As far as I am concerned anything that is marked public is free game. EDIT: Sorry, I missed Seco's comment above.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    Sorry, the dialog width is determined by the skin not the plugin.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    It automatically starts a full scan when MediaPortal is launched, after this it monitors for changes and if you have it configured to, it will do a full rescan every so often (although this is only needed for people using network storage). There used to be a rescan button on a context menu in...

    Cant login @follw.it

    Sorry about that, we did some server upgrades and it caused an issue with our API. It should be fixed now.

    Is there a list of variables to use with renamer?

    It looks like you are right that codec support got lost at some point. However next time you notice something like this, I would invite you to submit a patch or at least offer some constructive criticism in the right place rather than make passive aggressive criticisms about "improvements" in...

    Is there a list of variables to use with renamer?

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I missed this thread. The wild cards are matched to the database fields that are flagged as filterable. But Rochess what do you mean by "improved"? Anyway here is a list of what you can use (not all may be useful): ${movie.title} ${movie.alternate_titles}...

    Handling 3D / 3 Dimensional / Three Dimensional Movies

    Sorry this enhancement has not gotten much attention. To answer your question this has not been integrated yet mainly due to lack of time and man power. I am the only person working "full time" on the plugin right now so things have to be prioritized. The patch looks promising but it is over...

    Embedded NSIS Problem

    It's okay offbyone, I appreciate the fact that you spent some time on it. And the actual bug turned out to be on the Moving Pictures end anyways. MPEI does seem to behave oddly with working directories but I wouldn't call this a bug really, just an inconsistency.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    New release is out that fixes the installer issues, the missing delete button, and improves Bluray support and the Dutch translation. Thanks to Sebastiii and powermarcel10 for the last two. You can update via MPEI (which works correctly now) or here.

    Embedded NSIS Problem

    Thanks Volumia, you put me on the right track. When running through the Extension Installer, the Extension Installer sets the working directory for the embedded NSIS installer to the MediaPortal directory (this does not seem to happen when simply double clicking the MPE1 file). This is...

    Moving pictures 1.5: no submenu to delete a files

    This is unfortunately a bug that sneaked through the cracks of the latest release. I will be releasing a fix in the next day or so. If you can not wait until then, you can downgrade to the previous version. Sorry about this, I know it is inconvenient.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    This is fairly new functionality in MediaPortal, we just need to add hooks to make use of it. Sebastii submitted a patch for this so assuming everything merges smoothly this is coming soon. I will look into this, sorry for the trouble and sorry I didn't see this sooner. Thanks for all the...

    Embedded NSIS Problem

    The error message indicates that the installer could not copy the files to their destination. When it runs stand alone the cause for this in the past to my knowledge has always been because the files are locked (i.e. MediaPortal is running and has the old DLL loaded in memory). So that is the...

    Embedded NSIS Problem

    With the latest release of Moving Pictures we are trialing an MPEI. The current implementation is just a wrapper around our existing NSIS installer. I am using the standard "launch application" action in the MPEI installer. I would like to get rid of this and implement it 100% in MPEI but due to...

    Is this possible?

    Okay should be fixed in the new release. Please use "#MovingPictures.SelectedNode.Parent.name" for the name of the parent category. I will try to get the skin design guide updated as soon as possible.

    Moving Pictures 1.4: Movie Manager Filtering

    I am sorry mrbonsen, it was nothing personal and it did not have to do with your language. It is just hard for me to keep up with everything on the forums, I can not reply to everything. As for your suggestion I think it's a good one and it's very easy to add as well. This is not in today's...

    Moving Pictures 1.4: Movie Manager Filtering

    Is this possible?

    I understand. What you are trying to do is possible by making the change I described above. Unfortunately I do not have any knowledge on Black Glass so I can not be any more specific. But if you asked in their subforum they could probably tell you exactly which bit of text in your skin files you...
  30. fforde

    Is this possible?

    If you are asking if this will apply to everything, yes. You would basically be modifying the template that is used to display categories, so a change would apply to everything. I am sorry though I am not familiar with Black Glass. I took a glance at their source code but I wasn't able to...

    Is this possible?

    Yes this is possible but you will have to modify the skin you are using. Specifically swap out some text in an XML file somewhere. In this XML file will be a label with the text "Moving Pictures" or maybe "#MovingPictures.Settings.HomeScreenName". I think you need to swap that out with...

    MPEI with 1.2 and 13

    Thanks for the help Guzzi. I ended up deciding to go with an MPEI wrapper around our current NSIS script so we can get things released sooner now that 1.3RC is out. But this was helpful, I ended up doing something similar to get our NSIS installer to honor the silent install flag. This script...

    Abstract Class for (somewhat) Stand Alone Plugin Config Launcher

    For any plugin developers in the room, I created an abstract class that can be extended to easily create a (semi) stand alone plugin launcher. I wrote this for the next Moving Pictures release but I figured others might find it useful as well so I abstracted things. Feel free to use this code...

    MPEI with 1.2 and 13

    Is it possible to install different components based on the MediaPortal version? Moving Pictures works fine with both 1.2 (Stable) and 1.3 (Beta/RC) but the Default and DefaultWide skin files are totally different. How can I set different skin files for different versions? I do not want to...

    Help Skin the Moving Pictures GUI Importer

    Thanks for the feedback guys. This shouldn't affect skin design but here is a new build (above links should work fine too). This corrects the page number on the list spinner and this combines the two menus into a single menu that is trigger via either action.
