appletrailerfs 0.3.0-beta released

Filed under: releases, wdtv — Tags: , , — Elmar Weber @ 23:47

A new version of appletrailerfs has been released. appletrailerfs brings you the Apple movie trailers to your Western Digital TV HD or any other Linux.

Version 0.3.0 contains some new features and bug fixes, namely.

  • added auto update function
  • WDTV
    • integration with event-osd to display custom UI
    • added option to hide trailers of a specific resolution
  • reduced memory consumption
  • minor fixes regarding parallel file access

In general the auto update function is of course the most notable feature, but for the WDTV users the integration of event-osd in order to display a new UI is a nice addition as well (thanks to rezmus for the original design, his original looked better (with rating, etc), but the data is not grabbed yet).
Check out movie at the end of the article to get an impression of the WDTV UI in action.

The WDTV application image is available at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=259619&package_id=320560&release_id=686218.
To also enjoy the new GUI features you need the event-osd application image fromĀ http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=261153&filename=event-osd-r112-wdtv.zip.
As always, to use this you need ext3-boot or WDLXTV and you must copy the downloaded application images to your USB boot stick.

All project files can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=259619.

Filed under: releases, wdtv — Tags: , , , — Elmar Weber @ 00:07

A new version of appletrailerfs has been released. appletrailerfs brings you the Apple movie trailers into your filesystem and to your Western Digital TV HD.

Version 0.2.0 contains some new features and bug fixes, namely.

  • support for all JSON streams from Apple Trailers
    • more trailers
    • better sorted, e.g. by last update and genres
  • added movie posters to file system
  • fixed issue on WDTV when media database is disabled
  • option to redirect log output to log file
  • integrated WDTV scripts into build process
  • generated source code documentation

Most noticeable will be the new folder structure and the movie thumbnails. The new folder structure allows you to browse the trailers by updates, i.e. the newest trailer is shown first, or to browse the movie trailers by genre or just view movies were HD trailers are available. With the new movie poster support for each movie a thumbnail of the movie poster is shown in the movie’s directory. See the screenshots at the end of the post to get an impression of the new features.
The WDTV application image is available at http://sourceforge.net/project/platformdownload.php?group_id=259619&sel_platform=15736.

Filed under: releases, wdtv — Tags: , , , — Elmar Weber @ 04:28

This release fixes a bug in the start script. On some installations the filesystem was not started because theĀ  FUSE device node /dev/fuse was missing. The start script creates this node now.
