Information  New OfflineMediaManager (OMM)
Post: #1
Hey guys, I'm sad to report that the Offline Media Manager (OMM) is broken in Rev 13. It goes through the search and scarping processes just fine. It save's artwork to folder. However, it does not save the Place Holder Video, no longer prompts for trailer, and to top it off the movie never shows up in the database. I've tried this with:

Jack Reacher 2012
Broken City 2013

I've closed and reopened ember, but no luck. If I try to use the OMM for those movies again it claims that they already exist because after all, the folders are there.

Scraping and saving other than with the OMM works fine.

I did a fresh install on another PC and have the same problem where the OMM isn't generating the required place holder avi file. Log file folder is empty so no help there.

Has anyone else tried this module in rev 13?

i have found the problem:
The new ffmpeg.exe no longer support all options we use in Ember. I try to fix the code.

Workaround:
Use an older ffmpeg.exe from an older Ember build or try to find a working version on ffmpeg website.

CaptainKen, can you test this fix? Overwrite the original file in modules folder and use the included ffmpeg.exe in Ember 1.3.0.13.
http://rapidshare.com/files/99507925/gen...Holder.rar

I have improved the video quality to 40'000kbs/s, like FullHD (~8MB/file).
If it works without problems I will also add 1920x1080 (atm Ember support only 1280x720).

Thank you for your feedback.

It now creates the avi, but does not create the actors, extrathumbs or trailer.

Only 1095Kbps, 640x360 as shown here:

Yes and no...
Do you have select HDV before generate theplaceholder movie? I think 640x360 is standard.

Actor thumbs and extrathumbs i don't have tested, but i think i can solve that bug.

You got me Dan, forgot to select HDV. That's a new habit I'll need to start.Sorry.

However, I see another issue where the tagline appears in the middle rather than where I positioned it in the preview window.

Settings:
Tagline Top: 315
Place Holder Video Format = HDV
Font Size = 26
Fanart is: 1280x720 or 1920x1080
Use Fanart for Place Holder = true
Use Ember Overlay = false
Use Tagline Backgournd = true

@DanCooper not sure if you have just been too busy with other things to fix this or if I have to wait for v1.4, so just a friendly status check in?
