[MOD] Native Media Flagging support for Aeon - ccMatrix - 2009-06-10 01:11
XBMC now supports the extraction of media information such as video resolution, codec, aspect ratio, audio codec, audio channels as well as subtitle and audio language and exposing them to the skins.
The following archive contains a modified Includes_MediaFlags.xml file which changes the Aeon skin to use the resolution, codec etc. information stored in the internal database and extracted by XBMC.
Complete skin with native flagging:
If you want to display the media source (Blu-Ray, HD-DVD or DVD) instead of the codec you must add one of the following strings to the media filename:
Obviously if you want just the codec (xvid, divx, h264, ...) to show up you need to remove these strings from your media files. MediaRenamer is one tool which can help you in cleaning up your filenames.
The larger archive (not the small basic) also contains a media/multiplex folder and the two files Font.xml and Viewtype_Multiplex.xml in the 720p folder. These are optional and will result in a similar look like krypt2nite posted in the Workaround mediaflagging thread. If you like to have movie names and tvshow/episode name in the titlebar of the multiplex frame you can unzip the media/multiplex and these two files from the 720p folder into your Aeon skin.
For those using media manager applications to create NFOs
If you stored any additional stuff in your Studio tags then this mod will not display any Studio images for you. Instead of using many many images and show them based on the studio tag this mod uses the studio name itself to find the studios logo! You should be able to just update your NFOs and then repopulate the database.
Thanks and Credits

Very nice. This is going to open up new possibilities.

This is AWESOME news!

Since the native flagging will be applied to all of XBMC and not just Aeon, should this be mentioned elsewhere for those that don't check the Aeon subforum multiple times daily (unlike myself) ?

I think it should be posted elsewhere when it is added to the main branch and available with all nightly builds. Until then this is more of a feature test to see if all important information is available through it.
The reason I posted it here is that there are several people here, that mod Aeon and have already done some workarounds for the media flagging. Instead of spamming the feature suggestion/development thread, this topic here could be used to evaluate the feature set and then forward results to CpnBry.

OSX user here, waiting expectantly for further developments - Awesome News is Awesome!
All we need now is extrathumb generation and I'm throwing MIP away.

Good news indeed, it seemed a lot of work to have these workarounds when its actually a pretty simple thing to accomplish.

Will be interesting to see whether it'll be able to figure out ISO and IMG files, as currently MediaInfo (the DLL used by MIP, EMM etc.) cannot.
Either way, very, very cool.
