so Im using the my programs plugin "directory-browse" to burn dvd's via dvddecrypter with the following settings

burn%20dvd.jpg


with the following arguments
/MODE ISOWRITE /START /SRC "%FILE%" /DEST F:\

except that dtools auto mounts the iso, instead of opening it with dvddecrypter.
so what I did was create a .mds for each dvd.iso(using dvddecrypter) and set the File-Extensions to .mds.
now both .iso and .mds show up in the burn dvd dir.
the .mds do not mount w/dtools, and dvddecrypter opens and burns.
but the .iso auto mounts and then just shows up as an emtpy dir(of course there are no .mds file on a dvd video)

cons:
have to find the mds files in burn dvd dir, all the .iso and .mds names for each dvd are the same so it's a pain...


conclusion:
I have mp settings for dtools set to auto mount(which I want to in Videos)
mp shows .iso as a directory if dtools is set to auto mount, because there could be any type of file on the .iso like a video or a music file... mp mounts the image then browses it for a compatable extention, but .iso is an extention. this could cause the same problem for others with similar needs. there are many ways around this, but as I am new to mp, and know nothing about mp plugin dev.

would like to see:
an option in the my progs dir-browse settings: "do not show .xxx file extentions"
or have an option within dir-browse setting: "do not automount disc images"
or even better, an independent plugin that could be copied and renamed, for use of multiple aps. then could be put directly on the home screen or a sub menu
each renamed plugin will show up in plugin settings,each with there own config(similar to dir-browse in my progs)

any ideas or input on this, would be much appreciated.

Nolos, Since you mentioned Plex and you own the SiliconDust HD Homerun, I would recommend that you instead take a serious look at Emby rather than Plex. Emby is basically a competitor to Plex. And, they just added native support for the HD HomeRun for Live TV. Their big thing is that they want the TV guide to be "stunning". It would...

I've noticed all of these 'empty' trailers are a 4.92mb video file that runs for a min or so - just a black screen with the message 'this trailer is not available from this app. Go see Youtube.' All of these are trailers with '[HQ]' in the name. I'm getting around 30 or so apparently random trailers downloaded per night of these...

For me 2000ms is 100% reliable on my MP1 HTPC :cool: whereas 1500ms is mostly ok and much better than 1000ms but still occasionally plays a stream without audio but I did not try the que length and packet setting as per your change. I'll give it a try and let you know.

Didn't succeed in this. Don't know why but clicking that doesn't trigger the javascript that adds in that audioplayer... Perhaps rewriting browsetheweb so it uses the webview2 component will help, but that is quite a big effort...
