inspired by the great post of Michael I want to try to build a tool for editing Media Item Database entries:
First I was thinking about an AutoIt Tool as AutoIT has inbuild support for SQLite. But this is not that good if others are using other providers, so I'm thinking about the Webserver solution as this should work with any DB provider... But I can't find any information about the http server and how to access it.You want an easy way to edit your Metadata of your media files? Well, either write a separate application or again make use of the inbuilt http-server and implement a rich web interface to edit albums, artist, covers, etc. which will then show up in MP2 client.
In earlier days I've done database Webinterfaces quite often (in PHP) but there I had Apache, MySQL and PHP... What do I need (to know) to access MP2 Server DB via HTTP? Can I use PHP (don't think so)? Or are there anything like an API which delivers xml content? How did this work?
If we decide to use SQLite as default after the problems with TVE 3.5 are solved, than the AutoIT tool would make sense also. So I need a complete overview about DB structure as well. (is good for http too)
