Any suggestions? I'm new to this XML thing, clearly Sorry, I meant set up the path for your source as smb in XBMC. Then in the config file, you use whatever syntax your OS uses to access samba shares. For windows its Code: \\server\path\to\share TheCasa Wrote:After pulling only my queue in, again, the files were downloaded, added to the xbmc library, but not converted to strm for playing.

Do you happen to have the log file for this? You are really close. The reason it's not converted to a .strm is because this program never finds it in XBMC's database. The way I see it is that one of three things is wrong: Your dropbox\Tv Shows directory has not been added as a source in XBMC and had it's content type set to "TV Shows" (this should be done after some .mpg's exists in the dropbox). From your screenshot, it looks like the .mpg is in the library, so this probably isn't the issue. (most likely) - The path to your TV Shows directory in XBMC is different than the path you specified in the Config file. For example, one uses a network share and the other uses a local path. They have to be the same. I personally use a network share "\\onyx\\dropbox\\tvshows" in the config file, and in xbmc I set the source up as a smb path to the same directory. To troubleshoot this, can you post the contents of your sources.xml file (in XBMC's userdata directory) as well as your dropbox config in the Config.xml so I can compare. The query to your SQL database to determine if the dummy .mpg files is in the library is failing. However we would see this in the logs as an ERROR and I don't think we've seen that. As a disclaimer, my testing is limited to a Windows environment so things may be slightly different if your running a different OS - bradvido88 - 2011-12-13 16:18 bradvido88 Wrote:See my edited post above, it's a problem with me escaping backslashes in the query.

I'll post a fix (probably tomorrow but no guarantees) I fixed this bug, so now local paths should work for everyone. The new version can be downloaded here. To upgrade, you only need to replace the XBMC.MyLibrary.jar in your current version with the one from the new version. Also, this is compatible with Eden only (tested against Dec-10 build), if you're on Dharma, sorry I don't have time to fix that build. - TheCasa - 2011-12-13 16:29 bradvido88 Wrote: Your dropbox\Tv Shows directory has not been added as a source in XBMC and had it's content type set to "TV Shows" (this should be done after some .mpg's exists in the dropbox).

I'll try it when I get home and see if that resolves it. Quote: (most likely) - The path to your TV Shows directory in XBMC is different than the path you specified in the Config file.

The problem is that if you add a source to XBMC's library that doesn't have any vidoes inside of it, XBMC basically doesn't save that source and you have to re-add it once vidoes are inside it. Also, if you can change your logging level to DEBUG for my program, that will show us the exact queries that are being used against the SQL database. One last thing to make certain of for Eden & MySQL Users: The video library name changes as you upgrade XBMC. It will have the database version number tacked on the end. So anytime you upgrade XBMC, you need to change the video database name in the Config.xml to match the new version number. The latest version is xbmc_video58 - TheCasa - 2011-12-13 17:42 Ok, can I just add the folders as sources now that the mpgs are in there and rerun the program and have it pick them up and rename them? Or do I need to add them as sources, then delete the mpgs and rerun it? I'm excited to get this working and turn my cable off. Also, is there a wiki that defines searchfilters for various sources? Just curious.. if not, it would be great to start one. It would help noobs like myself get the most use out of your program. Thanks, this is great! - bradvido88 - 2011-12-13 18:20 TheCasa Wrote:Ok, can I just add the folders as sources now that the mpgs are in there and rerun the program and have it pick them up and rename them?

Once there are mpg's in there, you can add the source to XBMC. No need to rename/delete anything. No wiki yet, but I can help with searchfilters. They're really not that complicated once you get the hang of it. - Ryoga79 - 2011-12-13 19:52 A couple samples would be great - Specifically, i'd love to use FreeCable and Amazon Prime Video with the plugin! Also, and i'm not sure how i would exactly go about it, but i'd love to somehow use this in conjunction with sportsdevil and pseudotv to create "sports channels" and streaming news channels with my regular pseudotv lineup...i think that will take some more hackery above the scope of the plugin, but a guy can dream... Thanks for all your help! - TheCasa - 2011-12-14 05:41 Still no dice. I left the mpg files in the libary, removed the sources, re-added the source and re-ran the program. The shows import into the library, but the mpgs are still not renamed. Here's the verbose log. I'm at a loss now... http://pastebin.com/13JBN2DR I even tried to change it to a smb source instead of straight folder.
