Description

This goes beyond the player=<command> in the config file. Now we need player=<type>:command or similar so that we can support an array of command options for different video file types. This is specifically to allow xine to play either .mp4 or .iso, which require two different command lines:

  • mp4: xine file://path/file.mp4
  • iso: xine dvd://path/file.mp4

#1 Updated by Hammel almost 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 30

I've added support for multiple players based on filename extensions to videofe. The one thing left to add is to limit the files displayed to those supported by configured players.

Code is in my sandbox. It needs more testing before I check it in. Testing relies on support for scans of additional file types by VideoLib.
