MythSimpleVideos Released!

I’ve finally gotten around to releasing my new MythTV plugin.  Take a look at it here:

“MythSimpleVideos is my MythTV plugin which provides alternative functionality to MythVideo. It was created to allow simple, fast streaming of videos from a NAS device.”

Features

  • Fast directory listing. Does not recursively scan like MythVideo (in ‘File Browse Mode’), which destroys NAS performance.
  • No requirement to ‘Scan For Changes’ (in comparison to MythVideo in the default mode).
  • ‘One Click Viewing’ – automatically selects the best video file to play in the selected directory.
  • Quick file deletion – finished watching your video? rm -r the directory!

Missing Features

  • No metadata – I don’t want/need it.
  • No subdirectory viewing/playing (may be added in future).

(It’s supposed to be basic!)
