CapnBry Wrote:Hey a skin that uses hdflagging information, nice! (even if it is only using the filename for now) For the record, you can't have DTS and Dolby Digital in the new system because they are both audio codecs and only the "best" is exported to the skin (the first with the highest channel count). May want to revise the layout to be resolution | acodec | channels.
This means that all you have to do is rename the filename or folder name for the movie to be HD flag ready?

And for those who wanted both DTS *and* DD icons for the same file (because it has 2 audio tracks), I've changed to exporting all stream info to the skin. This means you've got ListItem.AudioCodec1 through N, or just 0 for the "best". You cannot however say ListItem.HasAudioCodecDTS or anything like that.

umm .. what are you talking about .. at this moment .. xbmc does not have media scannign built into it so it can not enter such data into the db .. hence skins can not use such information since it doesn't exist
djh has said repeatedly that for now, until these features are added to xbmc, stark will pull the flags from file names (and hopefully also dir names .. which he posted earlier it would)

I think you may have missed something.

So what is the right info? The folder/file names right?

Capnbry currently has an update ready for XBMC which reads the information direct from the files themselves. This removes any need for renaming for the audio and video info flags. Only the video source flag is read from the filename.

video source? you mean like Blu-ray? HD-DVD? etc..

What version of XBMC is everyone running? I'm running the default (Atlantis) version that's on the main download page/link... I know there are other versions and SVN's out there but are there really any advantages to these newer version (besides the DISadvantage of them no longer scraping from IMDB)...?

mrt2 Wrote:(besides the DISadvantage of them no longer scraping from IMDB)...?That's no longer the case, the IMDB scraper was re-enabled again. It's just not set as the default, but it's there.

This is sort of offtopic, but yeah there's been some stuff. Weather fanart, karaoke for the SDL ports, music fanart...actually there's a bunch, but rather than listing it all here, you can read it for yourself: http://trac.xbmc.org/roadmap
I'm pretty sure that only lists stuff that's already been added to svn.
