MythNetTV, is a completely unofficial and unsupported* RSS and Atom aggregator for video downloads (podcasts / webtv / movie trailers). The idea is that video blogs end up as recordings in MythTV, which you then watch as if they had be recorded by MythBackend.
- Runs from command line, simple GUI available
- RSS subscriptions
- Transcode non supported formats
- HTTP and Torrent support
- Import local files (batch and single)
- Cron Jobs possible
- Automatic retry
- Grouping of subscriptions
- Download statistics

url <url> <title> : to download an RSS feed and load the shows from it into the TODO list. The title is as the show title in the MythTV user interface file <url> <title>: to do the same, but from a file, with a show title like url above download <num> : to download that number of shows from the TODO list. We download some of the oldest first, and then grab some of the newest as well. download <num> <title filter> : the same as above, but filter to only download shows with a title exactly matching the specified filter download <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter> : the same as above, but with a regexp title filter as well download <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter> justone : the same as above, but download just one and then mark all other matches as read
cleartodo : permanently remove all items from the TODO list markread <num> : interactively mark some of the oldest <num> shows as already downloaded and imported markread <num> <title filter> : the same as above, but filter to only mark shows with a title exactly matching the specified filter markread <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter> : the same as above, but with a regexp title filter as well markunread <num> : interactively mark some of the youngest <num> shows as not already downloaded and imported
resetattempts : interactively reset the number of attempts for matching programs to zero. This will cause previously failed programs to be retried resetattempts <title filter> : as above, but only for shows with this title unfail : interactively scan through list of failed downloads asking the user if they should be tried again unfail <title filter> : as above, but only for shows which match the title filter
todoremote : add a remote URL to the TODO list. This will prompt for needed information about the video, and set the date of the program to now todoremote <url> <title> <subtitle> <description> : the same as above, but don't prompt for anything importremote : download and immediately import the named URL. Will prompt for needed information importremote <url> <title> <subtitle> <description> : the same as above, but don't prompt for anything importtorrent <url> <title> <subtitle> <description> : the same as above, but force the URL to be treated as a torrent. This is useful when MythNetTV doesn't automatically detect that the URL is to a torrent file. importlocal <file>: import the named file, using the title, subtitle and description from the command line. The file will be left on disk. importlocal <file>: import the named file. The file will be left on disk. Will prompt for needed information importmanylocal <path> <regexp> <title>: import all the files from path matching regexp. title is use as the title for the program, and the filename is used as the subtitle
subscribe <url> <title> : subscribe to a URL, and specify the show title list : list subscriptions unsubscribe <url> <title>
: unsubscribe from a feed, and remove feed programs from TODO list
update : add new programs from subscribed URLs to the TODO list update <title> : as above, but just for this program
(things you can do to subscriptions)
archive <title> <path> : archive all programs with this title to the specified path. This is useful for shows you download and import, but want to build a non-MythTV archive of as well category <title> <category> : set the category for a given program. The category is used for parental filtering within MythTV. group <title> <group> : set the group for a given program. The group is used as a recording group within MythTV. http_proxy <url regexp> <proxy> : you can choose to use a HTTP proxy for URL requests matching a given regular expression. Use this command to define such an entry. This might be handy if some of the programs you wish to subscribe to are only accessible over a VPN. http_proxy <url regexp> <proxy> <budget mb> : the same a s above, but you can specify the maximum number of megabytes to download via the proxy in a given day. To see proxy usage information, use the proxyusage command.
statistics : show some simple statistics about MythNetTV log : dump the current internal log entries nextdownload <num> : if you executed download <num>, what would be downloaded? nextdownload <num> <title filter> : as above, but only for the specified title proxyusage : print a simple report on HTTP proxy usage over the last seven days
videodir : show where MythNetTV thinks it should be placing video files explainvideodir : verbosely explain why that video directory was selected. This can help debug when the wrong video directory is being used, or no video directory at all is found
There is a module for MythWeb that provides simple subscription management. You can download it here, then decompress it, read the README file and copy it to the Mythweb modules directory.
