No More Updates for the Foreseeable Future

Filed under: updater, wdtv — Elmar Weber @ 18:19

As most people probably noticed by now, there haven’t been any updates in a long time. The scraping of the information from the Apple Trailer page is not a simple thing anymore and it was getting too cumbersome to keep ahead with the updater.

Since I upgrade to a WDTV Live I also have Youtube and with the correct channels I have the same benefit as with Apple Trailers (although with a little lower quality).

So there will be no further updates to the updater itself and only bug fixes to the core filesystem program. It can be the basis for any kind of media system for the WDTV, including a new appletrailerfs like system. The source code is available at and anyone interested can use it to continue.

It has been a fun project, I learned a lot about C programming and programming for embedded systems, but – as written above – the benefits do no longer outweigh the work.
