To avoid killing xbmc while someone is in the middle of watching a movie .. I presume that XBMC Auto Updater runs in the background and updates xbmc without any user input ..
I'm gonna give this a try, but don't think it would work, if any of the files in XBMC are locked the update would fail. unless xbmc loads EVERY SINGLE file into memory and releases the lock on the files.
I'll give it a try.
one thing i was thinking of is to skip the update if the xbmc is reported to be playing back media, i guess i could get that from evenhost or the api.
if someone could provide more info into figuring out if xbmc is playing back media it would be great.
