I'm kinda new to this, so hopefully this is the right way to get some
One of the things I like to have in combination with MythTV is a way to
browse through my own DVD collection on screen. MythVideo does provide
something like this, but does not entirely match my needs. Anyhow, what I'm
planning to do is write my own plug-in for it. Most important for me is easy
browsing through my entire collection or just a single genre in the fastest,
friendliest way. Additional per title some information about the move and a
picture of it (for which I can use the MythVideo code), personal information
like my own rating or where the DVD is stored etc and later on maybe even
more data of the DVD itself. (automaticly retreived for some online
Anyhow, before I start this raises a few questions:
- Is someone already working on something like this?
- Is it already discussed before? Maybe other people had good input, because
input is always welcome.
- It's possible to alter the MythVideo plugin, or write an entire new one.
When altering it, how can I get the latest version of MythVideo, to minimize
any code conflicts later on.
Anyhow, I just started on this thing, went through some code of both MythTv
and MythVideo (just felt like a code review ;-)) and I'm now writing down
some ideas and layouts. Guess I'm currently in the EPS phase, so this is the
time for suggestion and other specifications.. ;-)) So hopefully I can get
some answers to my questions any time soon.
