Hello

What about extracting "Play DVD" from "My Video" and incorporate it in the nice "My DVD" plugin ?

Doesn't make much sense to me. DVD is well kept under videos, that's where it belongs. I have access to my DVDs stored on the harddisk and the DVDs on a - ah, guess - DVD.

I would, however, be in favour for taking the TV program out of the TV section. That way I could schedule recordings with the Radio running in the background ;-)

I concur

Removing the DVD Player from Video Section would open the door to external DVD Plugins.

I was kinda thinking about taking the VideoLan Libraries and building a integrated DVD Player type app.

Is there any other reason to remove it?

dvds ripped to your hard drive are technically video files

dvds have a full slew of features such as trailers, menus, menus, etc that normal videos do not have.


videos and dvds are so distinctly different that to me it makes no sense to have them bunched up in the same cagegory, it can especially confused new users who are looking for the dvd section.

    Ripped DVDs, also have all of those things. ;)

    Anyway, i think, splitting this section up is something to consider.

    In the thread about the new version 0.2 there was an other suggestions for a new menu structure, which i liked very much. On the main menu there should be things like "Music", "Video", "Misc" "Settings" and then in the submenu of e.g. "Video": "TV", "Movies", "DVD", etc.

    I would also like to have the TV Guide sepparted. When i browse it, i mostly want to hear music and not watch TV. ;)

    I myself have never understood a seperate plugin for a dvd.

    I would like that button removed to, but not to be used @ all.
    We have autolaunch, or when you browse to the drive you have shared you can get the question if you wanna play the disc.

    Why a seperate dvd plugin?
    It's just a movie with some extra's.
    You can put your dvd's in the same video database as we have now.
    So when you got people over you can enjoy looking through your movie database and search for the movie you wanna see.
    Regardless of it being on a cd, dvd or HD.

    Having MyDVD al;so asks for a MyVCD and a MySVCD and a MyCD, maybe for rips a MyHD ???

    those r my toughts about it.

    Yes, it’s a feature of MP2. There are not many plugins, because most essential things are included by default. The look and feel depends on when you tried last time. Since MP2.3 there is Nereus as new default skin with a different look and feel. But MP2 is not a clone of MP1, so some things will be different.

    I found this post by accident. I think your issue has nothing to do with HTPC projects and Hardware, so is in the wrong thread. Also you do not mention, if it's related to MP1 or MP2, so nobody can really help. Please move your post to a related problem thread and provide more information.

    I found the answer. The files were downloaded, and must have had some sort of corruption in them that passed the other players I tried them in, but produced the green bar in the TVSeries plugin. After downloading the files again, the problem went away. Thanks for your help.
