i want to write a plugin that extracts TV Series Informations from several media filenames.
The generally thing i want to do is:
- XBMC will pass the full filename including path from a media file to a plugin which are i am going write.
- These plugin will pass the filename to an webservice (php page) which i have already written
These webservice will use the full filename with path to generate some hashes out of the entire file content,
directly on the filesystem.
These hashes will be used to "identify" the files from a local database which contains the real
TV series informationen which will be returned as "XML".
I was planning to return the xml to an XBMC format, so that no parsing is needed by regex or something like that.
Now i want to know if that is possible with the XBMC plugin architecture?
And if yes, which plugin type must i write to realise this?
Of course, i checked the scraper wiki page but it seems that the scraper plugin can only
use the parent folder/filename parsed by the "advancedsettings.xml" as base which cannot be used with my method on top.
Thanks in advance,
