MythNetVision to cure borked MythTV hacks


This is some pretty cool development, assuming it sees the light of day. Maybe some of our Linux faithful here can give us a review when it gets out…and hopefully stays working.


Hack A Day

Although not yet available, the designers have built the plugin in two parts. The frontend is a fully skinnable user interface that parses RSS feeds to provide the hooks needed to browse, search, and view video. Depending on the content, a browser may be spawned to play the video, it may be played within MythTV’s normal player, or a separate download thread can be launch with video following after the appropriate buffer level is reached. The RSS feeds come either directly from the provider, such as the Revision3 feeds, or a scraper can be written to provide custom RSS feeds from sites that don’t have them.
