    This thread is about adding support for recordings from MCE inside MP2

    Actually MP2 could support this as well: if there is any video + xml in our TVE recoding format it will be possible to import them into recordings. We could simply add .wtv as recording extension: https://github.com/MediaPortal/Medi...r/Tve3RecordingMetadataExtractor.cs#L198-L200. But ofc. there would be the need for an additional xml file to be created for each recording.

    Or does the .wtv has some kind of embedded metadata? In this case a specialised MDE could be a solution...


    Edit: seems there are possible solutions:

    So is there interest for a WTV MDE for MP2? If so I'd need some example recordings. And they would quickly appear inside MP2's SlimTv recording section :)

    I'm glad to say that MP2 / SlimTV is now able to properly import and playback .wtv and .dvr-ms files :D

    Importer does extract channel, recording start/end (for grouping and sorting inside SlimTV recordings), title and subtitle. I also look into a possible series lookup using TheTVDb, but I need to change some lookup calls for this idea.

    Credits for metadata extraction go to MCEbuddy (y)

    One example .wtv file taken from: http://samples.mplayerhq.hu/wtv/

    I think this will be a very useful feature for new users switching over from MCE to MP2.

    There could be a lot of interest I would suggest since Win 10 will not have the WMC that is why I have switched.

    So is this import only in MePo 2? I installed MePo 1 as I figured that would be more stable.... should I be using MePo 2?

    I can strongly recommend to take a look at MP2, it is a complete new product. Maybe not as feature rich as MP1, but working very good already.
    The new wtv support (see post above before yours) will be available in few days, if you need it faster, I can publish a download link.

    OK - I have an old MC PC I can on which I can put MP2 - I am reluctant to do it, at this stage, on my main MC PC as it has taken me a week to get a working, but not fine tuned system....

    So I will take a look - I also have an other test PC with win 10 I can use as a client... Downloading now as I type.
