Trailer URLs fixed

Filed under: updater — Tags: , — Elmar Weber @ 00:23

Apple moved the trailers to a new domain and the updater was still verifying the URLs against the old one, so the last two days no movies showed up. The problem is fixed and the next update will pull in the full list again.


  1. Hello,

    When do you expect to release version w/ this fix ?

  2. The bugfix was on the server side only, i.e. there is no need to update the appletrailerfs application. Everything should work as usual. Do you experience any problems?

  4. You are using it on the WDTV? In that case please post your appletrailerfs.log.txt file from your USB stick here, or if too large, send to to me via mail (appletrailerfs(A@T)

  7. Hi Elmar,

    any chance to see appletrailerfs for the WDTV Live in the near future? I really liked the appletrailerfs feature on the old WDTV.

  8. Hi Elmar,
    Before I ramble on is there a version of appletrailer and event-osd for WDTV Live? I’m using B-Rad’s WDLXTV-Live v0.4.1.9-6.

    I’ve rebuilt appletrailer and it looks to be working fine. I had to modify S60appletrailer to create the folder /tmp/atfs_cache and change the –database-file option to use the folder /apps/appletrailerfs/share/appletrailerfs instead of the defailt /share/… which didn’t exist.

    I’ve also rebuilt event-osd but here is where the problem is. As far as I can see from the code you are looking throught the dmaosd heap for the directory the user is currently viewing. Then you are using the stack to confirm that you have found the correct entry (by counting the number of times the string address is referenced). This reference count is nearly always 0. I have seen one log where it was 1 but I think that was just a concidence.

    I’m stuck at this point. Have you any suggestions on how to proceed? I havent touched unix in about 12 years but I’m slowly getting up to speed.
