    Overview

    AtmoLight is a process plugin that interfaces with different ambilight solutions and brings Ambilight to MediaPortal.
    The main function is to send the needed data directly to your ambilight solution to reduce the CPU load drastically, making Ambilight and smooth playback possible.
    This is the MediaPortal2 Version of AtmoLight. You can find the version for MediaPortal here.

    Installation

    Extract the rar to C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Client\Plugins


    If you have been using a test version older than Beta 1, please manually delete the AtmoLight.Settings.xml before using Beta 1 or newer. The xml is located in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Client\Config\{USER_NAME}\.

    Beta 2 is only compatible to MP2 10th AE Update 1 or newer and all AtmoLight 2.0 version before that are only compatible to MP2 10th AE or older.

    2.0.0.0 Final is only compatible to MP2 Weekly 2014-11-15 or newer.

    Original Post:
    Hey,
    im currently trying to make a AtmoLight plugin for MP2. At the moment its just a skeleton and im trying to get all the tools ready i need.
    I already figgured out how i can set up an event handler for PlayerStarted aswell as PlayerStopped.

    Code:
          void SubscribeToMessages()
          {
            messageQueue = new AsynchronousMessageQueue(this, new string[] { PlayerManagerMessaging.CHANNEL });
            messageQueue.MessageReceived += OnMessageReceived;
            messageQueue.Start();
          }
    
          void OnMessageReceived(AsynchronousMessageQueue queue, SystemMessage message)
          {
            if (message.ChannelName == PlayerManagerMessaging.CHANNEL)
            {
              PlayerManagerMessaging.MessageType messageType = (PlayerManagerMessaging.MessageType)message.MessageType;
              if (messageType == PlayerManagerMessaging.MessageType.PlayerStarted)
              {
                Log.Info("AtmoLight: Playback started.");
              }
              else if (messageType == PlayerManagerMessaging.MessageType.PlayerStopped)
              {
                Log.Info("AtmoLight: Playback stopped.");
              }
            }
          }
    Please let me know if there is a better way to do that.

    What i dont know at the moment is how i can figure out what kind of media is playing. In MP1 i could use something like g_Player.IsVideo, or i would get the mediatype as parameter in the PlaybackStarted eventhandler.

    Also, what i dont know yet is how to get the video frames (surfaces) to work with them and send them to AtmoWin. This would be the counter part to mp1's framegrabber. @morpheus_xx said here that this is possible, but i just dont know how :(.

    I would highly appreciate any help. And please be patient with me, i consider myself a beginner :).

    What i dont know at the moment is how i can figure out what kind of media is playing.
    e.g
    Code:
    var isVideo = ServiceRegistration.Get<IPlayerContextManager>().IsVideoContextActive
    var isAudio = ServiceRegistration.Get<IPlayerContextManager>().IsAudioContextActive
    About the Videoframes :oops:. I know nothing about it.

    You can access active players via IPlayerManager service. Try to cast the IPlayer to ISlimDXPlayer, it has a Surface property. Not sure what you need for processing, but it would be a start.
    I'm on smartphone now and can't link to sources...

    To be honest, you lost me there already :(. But no hurry, maybe when you are on you pc and have a spare 5 minutes you could look at this. I will try to explain what we are using right now for MP1. However, i did not build this, i just inharited it, especially the framegrabber part.

    In MP1 we use an event handler, like this:
    Code:
        FrameGrabber.GetInstance().OnNewFrame += new FrameGrabber.NewFrameHandler(AtmolightPlugin_OnNewFrame);
    
        private void AtmolightPlugin_OnNewFrame(short width, short height, short arWidth, short arHeight, uint pSurface)
        {
          if (playbackEffect != ContentEffect.MediaPortalLiveMode || atmoOff || atmoCtrl == null || width == 0 || height == 0 || reInitializeLock)
          {
            return;
          }
    
          if (rgbSurface == null)
          {
            rgbSurface = GUIGraphicsContext.DX9Device.CreateRenderTarget(captureWidth, captureHeight, Format.A8R8G8B8,
              MultiSampleType.None, 0, true);
          }
          unsafe
          {
            try
            {
              if (AtmolightSettings.sbs3dOn)
              {
                VideoSurfaceToRGBSurfaceExt(new IntPtr(pSurface), width / 2, height, (IntPtr)rgbSurface.UnmanagedComPointer,
                  captureWidth, captureHeight);
              }
              else
              {
                VideoSurfaceToRGBSurfaceExt(new IntPtr(pSurface), width, height, (IntPtr)rgbSurface.UnmanagedComPointer,
                  captureWidth, captureHeight);
              }
    
              Microsoft.DirectX.GraphicsStream stream = SurfaceLoader.SaveToStream(ImageFileFormat.Bmp, rgbSurface);
    
              BinaryReader reader = new BinaryReader(stream);
              stream.Position = 0; // ensure that what start at the beginning of the stream.
              reader.ReadBytes(14); // skip bitmap file info header
              byte[] bmiInfoHeader = reader.ReadBytes(4 + 4 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4);
    
              int rgbL = (int)(stream.Length - stream.Position);
              int rgb = (int)(rgbL / (captureWidth * captureHeight));
    
              byte[] pixelData = reader.ReadBytes((int)(stream.Length - stream.Position));
    
              byte[] h1pixelData = new byte[captureWidth * rgb];
              byte[] h2pixelData = new byte[captureWidth * rgb];
              //now flip horizontally, we do it always to prevent microstudder
              int i;
              for (i = 0; i < ((captureHeight / 2) - 1); i++)
              {
                Array.Copy(pixelData, i * captureWidth * rgb, h1pixelData, 0, captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(pixelData, (captureHeight - i - 1) * captureWidth * rgb, h2pixelData, 0, captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(h1pixelData, 0, pixelData, (captureHeight - i - 1) * captureWidth * rgb, captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(h2pixelData, 0, pixelData, i * captureWidth * rgb, captureWidth * rgb);
              }
              //send scaled and fliped frame to atmowin
              if (!AtmolightSettings.lowCPU ||
                  (((Win32API.GetTickCount() - lastFrame) > AtmolightSettings.lowCPUTime) && AtmolightSettings.lowCPU))
              {
                if (AtmolightSettings.lowCPU)
                {
                  lastFrame = Win32API.GetTickCount();
                }
                  atmoLiveViewCtrl.setPixelData(bmiInfoHeader, pixelData);
              }
              stream.Close();
              stream.Dispose();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
              Log.Error("AtmoLight: Error in AtmolightPlugin_OnNewFrame.");
              Log.Error("AtmoLight: Exception: {0}", ex.Message);
    
              rgbSurface.Dispose();
              rgbSurface = null;
            }
          }
        }
    That hooks into https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/blob/master/mediaportal/Core/Player/FrameGrabber.cs

    I would need something similar in MP2.

    Thanks for your help :)

    If I read your code correctly, you render the surface into a bitmap. So I expect the atmolight logic is using this as input? Or would it be able to use the Surface directly?

    Yes, this is the input for AtmoLight, on every frame the event is called, the Surface converted into a bitmap, shrunken in size and then sent to AtmoWin. Afaik Atmowin only excepts bitmap.

    OK, after a lot of trial and error i came up with this.

    Code:
        private SharpDX.Direct3D9.Surface rgbSurface;
        private void MyThread()
        {
          while (ServiceRegistration.Get<IPlayerContextManager>().IsVideoContextActive)
          {
            try
            {
              rgbSurface = ServiceRegistration.Get<ISharpDXVideoPlayer>().Surface;
              Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(0, 0, rgbSurface.Description.Width, rgbSurface.Description.Height);
    
              DataStream stream = SharpDX.Direct3D9.Surface.ToStream(rgbSurface, SharpDX.Direct3D9.ImageFileFormat.Bmp, rect);
    
              BinaryReader reader = new BinaryReader(stream);
              stream.Position = 0; // ensure that what start at the beginning of the stream.
              reader.ReadBytes(14); // skip bitmap file info header
              byte[] bmiInfoHeader = reader.ReadBytes(4 + 4 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4);
    
              int rgbL = (int)(stream.Length - stream.Position);
              int rgb = (int)(rgbL / (AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * AtmoLightObject.captureHeight));
    
              byte[] pixelData = reader.ReadBytes((int)(stream.Length - stream.Position));
    
              byte[] h1pixelData = new byte[AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb];
              byte[] h2pixelData = new byte[AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb];
              //now flip horizontally, we do it always to prevent microstudder
              int i;
              for (i = 0; i < ((AtmoLightObject.captureHeight / 2) - 1); i++)
              {
                Array.Copy(pixelData, i * AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb, h1pixelData, 0, AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(pixelData, (AtmoLightObject.captureHeight - i - 1) * AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb, h2pixelData, 0, AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(h1pixelData, 0, pixelData, (AtmoLightObject.captureHeight - i - 1) * AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb, AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb);
                Array.Copy(h2pixelData, 0, pixelData, i * AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb, AtmoLightObject.captureWidth * rgb);
              }
    
              AtmoLightObject.SetPixelData(bmiInfoHeader, pixelData);
    
              stream.Close();
              stream.Dispose();
    
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
              Log.Error("ex: {0}", ex.Message);
            }
          }
          System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(10);
        }
    Lots of red squgily lines in vs for a long time, because directx surfaces are not the same as sharpdx surfaces blabla..., after trying to convert one to another for some time i found the ToStream method in sharpdx, which looked to be my savior. However my error seems to be even before that. Running this i get this exception:

    Code:
    [2014-04-23 03:08:20,811] [21474  ] [112      ] [ERROR] - AtmoLight: ex: Could not find the MediaPortal.UI.SkinEngine.Players.ISharpDXVideoPlayer service
    its late, im tiered, if i make no sense or did obvious mistakes, please forgive me. Wanted to let this here as its still fresh and i still know what i actually did... ;).
    Maybe someone has an idea ;).

    In principle you are on the right way, but you cannot access the player itself via ServiceRegistration, because MP2 handles two or even more players concurrently. You need to use the IPlayerManger service to get the active instances. Look into the StatsRenderer plugin, it also enumerates players.

    I think the StatsRenderer approach might even work better: you could get the full screen once it is rendered from backbuffer. Then it doesnt matter if one or more videos are playing, and also if fullscreen, window or PiP is used. Check the plugin code, it directly hooks into render events.
