xbmc minified as a server?

You can also add the sources from a client, which is probably a bit easier if you want to configure the options for each source.

Code:
INSERT INTO `path` (`strPath`, `strContent`, `strScraper`, `strHash`, `scanRecursive`, `useFolderNames`, `strSettings`, `noUpdate`, `exclude`, `dateAdded`) VALUES

OK, so I compiled XBMC 14.0-ALPHA1 into docker container running on Ubuntu 12.04 and everything seems to be working. This is running under VMWare, so I shared my videos, pictures and music over (as test) and is mounted as /mnt/hgfs. I then used -v /mnt/hgfs:/media in my run command and used the above script to add /media/video and /media/music as sources. I finally added cron entry to update the library at regular intervals. Just did this as a quick proof of concept to replace Serviio. I am able to browse content on all my dlna/upnp devices including other XBMC boxes and so far, all content has been able to play.

However, I do have a couple questions. Why do I have to add sources in the database? I originally wanted to test pure upnp setup which my understanding wouldn't even need centralized DB. I tried leaving out DB configuration and only use sources.xml but had no luck in doing so. I also am not quite sure how to add picture source through XML or DB. Is there a way I can add my pictures library as a local source and share via upnp?

Hi! Good question. What you do is the following:

1. Setup xbmc on your computer (download it as normal, install as normal)
2. Configure the sources there with the GUI, adding pictures, video locations etc.
3. Enable UPnP Server and other services and test them in your network
4. Then simply copy over the userdata folder from your computer to your server and link that with the docker container (-V ~/.userdata:.. look at the example)
5. Copy over advancedsettings.xml to the userdata folder (from the xbmc docker container) and remove the section about mysql.
6. Run your container

Your xbmc server will then start and it will be identical to the xbmc you had configured on your PC.
Effectively you configure everything through gui and once satisfied you shutdown and copy the library/database/settings to the docker container where it will run as a headless server.
No need to configure anything manually with xml or db.

That's a great idea, thanks. I will give it a try.

The server i am currently working with is Ubuntu Server.

I opened a thread on a new DB format that works as a shared DB... your contribution would be great. I under the development subforum.
I already proposed the first logical view of the DB

I think having a good shared DB will be better than having a headless XBMC as MySQL (or any other DB) can run on NAS and other platforms

OP has been banned.

Also, sure, a more streamlined DB is always welcome, but that won't replace a headless XBMC. The whole point of a headless XBMC is that we can do the scraping and what not on our NAS (or other server kind of system).

Err sounds like reinventing the wheel.?

The existing MySQL db format works fine as a shared db, no new dev required.

Have you guys checked out using MediaBrowser as the server and a plugin called XBMB3C to connect xbmc clients to it? It's developed now to a level where there is no need for using the xbmc local database for anything. All info such as watched status per user etc is synched and available on any of the multiple clients it has (ios, roku etc)

There's even a fair few skins that have been modded to fully integrate the xbmb3c addon.

Have a look here: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.p...tham-repo/

Sounds a lot like PleXBMC, which allows you to use XBMC with Plex media server. What most people in this topic are looking for (at least I do) is native XBMC support.

I see this comment in the plans for Helix:

Quote:Library:
Improve XBMC's database schema for flexibility and add abstraction to support different backends
Change the preferred extension for metadata import/export files from .nfo to .xml as standard for XBMC
As a developer working with MediaBrowser, this sounds very interesting. Is there a thread somewhere with more details?

I think it makes a lot of sense to handle the server-based DB functionality the same way the Live TV functionality was added - a good API to provide hooks for multiple solutions.

I am reading forum, and the PR is not doubling the efforts. Its utilizing the shared library patches. And the intent is that with the --headless would be the same as shared library, depending on how much is compiled in. Further down the road we would also produce more than one alternative binary.

EDIT. Basically what I want to achieve is to get the shared library patch out there and fix up the APIs so its usable as headless from scratch. I.e. make webinterfaces be able to set it all up.

I've built and ran the Frodo xbmc-server successfully a while ago.
Now I want to move to Gotham because of DB changes and whatnot, and I followed this instructions below, but the version banner of xbmc-server sais:
Code:

I was expecting 13. something, ideally I wanted to build Gotham 13.1 which seems stable currently.

I've also tried to checkout xbmc directly and applied the patches from the excellent docker file from wernerb. The result was much the same.
So I think that I checked out the wrong branch of the XBMC repo, or I don't understand their branching/tagging entirely?

Definitely sounds like something went wrong with your branch checkout.

Try the following single command:

Code:
git clone https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git -b Gotham --depth=1

Weeee!
Thanks wernerb, that worked. Now the version banner shows 13.2.
It stars, but segfaults after a few seconds. The final lines in the xbmc.log are:

Quote:19:00:51 T:140134960048000 NOTICE: initialize done
19:00:51 T:140134441105152 NOTICE: Thread VideoInfoScanner start, auto delete: false

I've had to copy settings.xml and linux.xml into the system/settings folder, otherwise it wouldn't start.
Do I need to remove/replace any other files coming from a frodo minified install?
Yes, I did replace the /lib/libxbmc.so and did a ldconfig.

I've got a advancedsettings.xml in my portable_data/userdata folder. I've removed all other XML files, so I'm on default settings.

After a few seconds, xbmc fails with:

edit:
After I dug through this thread I found a few fixes (guisettings.xml, advancedsettings.xml) and after further disabling services I get a different log message. The server still segfaults though.
The final lines in the xbmc.log are:
Code:

When I remove the repository.xbmc.org folder from the addon folder, it doesn't segfault. But only if I disable the webserver and all other network interfaces.
As soon as I enable them again, the segfault returns.

The repository segfaults when it tries to check for updates, so I conclude that there is something broken in the network libraries in XBMC.

I'm running it on Ubuntu server 13.10. The minified XBMC-server of Frodo ran perfectly stable on the same box.

Any idea what's going on here?


Edit2:
I found out that the patches from Docmeth2 in post #623 here don't apply anymore.
Since I don't care about UPnP I manually applied the fix to xbmc/network/Network.cpp. That did seem to do the trick.
Yay!

@fizze, I suspect that the reason it segfaulted for you with Gotham is because of the sneaky XBMC_GLOBAL_REF macro...the trick this macro uses does not work across binaries. In this case, xbmc-server and libxbmc.so have different opinions about what g_application is, so when xbmc-server calls g_application.Create(), this does _not_ initialize the version that libxbmc.so sees. I ran into this issue trying to initialize UPnP (which I do care about :-)

Here's a patch that fixes the crash for me:

Code:
From 847020fc00baebd8a8cc2ee7ce2b05a87b5f5e8d Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH] XBMC_GLOBAL_REF macro is unsafe to use across module
boundaries, as it results in each module getting its own copy of the global
(in this case, xbmc-server and libxbmc.so). Fix this by creating a
GetApplicationInstance() function implemented in libxbmc.so, and call this
function from xbmc-server.
