    Maybe someone would take on the task to create a plugin that burns cd's and dvd's, but is anyone actually doing this from a HTPC? I'm only asking out of interest, because I would do that from my main PC myself :)
    I have been sorely missing myBurner for years. Of course I can burn CDs from another PC, or even on the HTPC using other software, but the convenience of being able to burn a CD through the 10' interface from the MP Music module, without needing a keyboard was so much easier than using anything else that I really miss it!

    But you guys probably know that Windows Media Player allows easy audio CD (including mp3) burning, do you? :D

    Which doesn't mean that I recommend using it. I simply wanted to remind you that this can be done out-of-the-box without the need for external tools.

    I say it reluctantly, to burn a CD/BD is only the last was I mist in my Media Center and it will be grad when his disire will be reality, because I hate to change the programm:)

    In 2012 I try to use the Plugin "CD Burner" unfortunately the plug will never works of my HTPC.

    When someone will develop I will help with pleasure to test the plugin.

    Would anyone looking over Media Slayer maybe he will look over the problem, that Media Slayer will not get CD Cover when you ripp a CD (see #730)

    Hi to everybody, I have just tried to rip a cd audio using Mediaslayer and with the last MP release ( 1.24 and 1.25 ) it doesn't work anymore returning a "irrecoverable error"; however it still works well with dvd and blu ray disc.
    I do know that this is a very dated plugins but can be that it isn't a big work to fix it again.

    Thanks and regards
    Marco

    Today I tried again to understand the error of the "MediaSlayer Plugin" better. Here are the results:

    - The Media Slayer problem is NOT a MediaPortal 1.25 problem, it is a basic problem of the "Media Slayer Plugin", even under MediaPortal 1.22 the plugin does not work in online mode anymore!

    -If the network is switched off or the network cable is disconnected, the tool works without problems, but in this case you won't get any album information. This limits the usage of the plugin.

    - As a result, the music database (FreeDB) from which the album information comes is probably a little bit changed in the last time at the query log (API). This leads to the fact that no album information can be retrieved anymore, which causes the well-known error message.

    - MediaSlayer uses the (command line) program "CD-Slayer by Carsten Haahr Larsen" for ripping music. To fix the error it would probably be sufficient to change the command line tool "CDSlayer" from the plugin, unless the syntax of the program has changed.

    Unfortunately, the program CD Slayer is apparently no longer developed. Unfortunately I could not find an old version of the tool or the source code of the tool on the internet. The old homepage, where the tool was originally supposed to be found, is no longer online (sunbreeze.dk/cms).

    Another homepage of "Carsten Haahr Larsen" I have not found.

    To update the plugin MediaSlayer, Media Slayer would have to be adapted to another ripping tool or the program "CD-Slayer" would have to be decompiled and updated.

    Maybe some person will found more information to fix the problem.
