I've previously shown how to force MyPicsDB to update it's database automatically each night by using an external script. Unfortunately, this method is no longer quite as easy since Frodo introduced JSON-RPC for http requests. (Well - probably it's quite easy when you get the hang of it - but...).

I instead found another solution. I use the service The Scheduler (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=144378) and create a custom built-in script with the following action:

Code:
RunScript(";C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.image.mypicsdb\scanpath.py",--database)

Remember to update to your own path. I've chosen to run the script each night at 3:00 AM, so that every morning my Last Added-widget shows the images that was added the previous day.

Just a hint.

FFY

Call MyPicsDB 12.1.3 as follows:
Code:
RunScript("C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.image.mypicsdb\scanpath.py",--refresh)


It is much faster

Hi Xycl.

This addon has been removed from XBMC.org repository ? I cannot find it any more :S

I have seen some times ago, when you ask for a repo push, a mail from Martijn asking you if this addon should be keeped in repo has development are stopped.

And your repo is empty, even after a forced refresh.

So how can users can install this addon ?


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-10-29

Hi,

the repo from my signature works.
And yes due to different opinions about spare time hobbies between me and Martijn MyPicsDb was removed from official repo.

Xycl

OK I will make a new try (maybe it's because of my office proxy).

It's sad because I guess a lot of addons registered in XBMC official repo are not updated for a while so why MyPicsDB, which is quite stable, have to be removedSad

Xycl

just so you know the line-endings rule is not my choice.
my opinion is that it doesn't matter but i not alone so consensus now is it should have consistent line ending

available in my repository.

It contains a lot of bug fixes introduced with the DB abstraction layer used for the MySql connectivity in version 12.0.0. ( which is and will forever be the last one in official XBMC repository
I thought that MyPicsDB was removed because of this sentence and because XYCL stop to maintain this addon.

But is it because XYCL develop under Windows and addon (and files) have to be pushed on repo with LINUX line-ending (Windows : CR LF / LINUX : LF http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newline) ?

It has been removed because I decided to reject the rules I have to fulfull to submit to repo.

It not so easy.
I use Aptana Studio which is configured to save the files with Unix line endings.
But regularly I get patches from users. And frequently these patches contain CR/LF.

I know that.
That was the reason why I wrote that it doesn't make sense to discuss the rules. Wink

Version 12.2.0 now supports Ruuk's Plugin Slideshow Screensaver

Hi

I applaud you on the success of MyPDB. It is magnificent.

One question though is why thumbnails do not show up for my home videos when using NFS.
Most of my home videos have the *.mov extension. But I don't think that makes a difference as I have tried many other video formats

The thumbnails show up fine when using SMB.

The reason I ask is that I use NFS by default as I find I do not get buffering at all, using NFS, although I get buffering regularly when using SMB.

Thanks


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-11-18

Does XBMC shows the thumbnails when using the "normal" picture file browser?
I don't think so because XBMC is responsible for showing the thumbnail.
MyPicsDB doesn't do anything except giving back the paths to XBMC.


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - espressologic - 2013-11-18

You are 100% correct. When I use native XBMC pictures, no thumbnails show up when I use NFS but they do show up when using SMB.

Do you know why? Is it an XBMC issue or is it on my QNAP NAS end?


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-11-19

It's an XBMC issue.

XBMC automatically creates the thumbnails from media files.
I don't know why the network protocoll is important but obviously the NFS layer prevents XBMC from creating the thumbnails.

I use NFS (connecting to Synology) and with the native 'Pictures' section I get thumbnails. I'm running XBMC on Win7 x64, nothing fancy. I'll install this Add-On and let you know what I find... I've been meaning to get this installed since the native XBMC 'Pictures' sux. Smile
