This is already in the code, configurable through the config file as "player=<cmd>". I need to test this with xine as the player. However, to test it I need a configurable tree to search for the db. This is hardcoded in videofe.c:main(). If I make it configurable then I can search /movies for the movie db and have VideoLib create it there. An even simpler test would be to symlink the Mobile tree to ~/Movies and just create the db in Mobile.

So:
  1. Make top of db tree configurable via the config file.
  2. symlink /movies/Cinema-3/Mobile ~/Movies
  3. Have VideoLib scan ~/Movies/Mobile

Then I can test videofe on the desktop with a configurable player and db tree.

The code changes that make dbTop configuration are in my sandbox. But I need to be on galileo to test them.

This feature is extended by the use of multiple player types from RM #450. Still needs to be tested after VideoLib is extended to scan for multiple format types.
