High-Definition Video Flagging (library filtering/sorting & skin thumbnails overlay)?
#16
Hm I've switched over to XBMC linux but I still want this feature really badly. Any update as to whether a dev wants to make this their pet project or not? Hehe.

since u ask; no interest from me, this is something i'd consider bloat

Here are a few example screenshots from a MeediOS skin (called "meedioVintage") with such flags in action:
(as you can see MeediOS also have flags for high-definition audio such as Dolby Digital and DTS, with channels)

For more screenshots of this Meedio Vintage skin see the MeediOS forum here:

I've beenhaving some talks with a few devs about implementing this. Its only in a "what if" stage at the moment, but the proposal is to do a setup whereby we would scan the filename for certain text to indicate media info. This way the addition would be rather "lite" and tottaly up to the user.

Personally I would prefer to add this information to a .nfo file rather than to the filename itself. That said, if any method was implemented I'd be a happy camper.

That is an interresting idea. The reason I originally porposed the filename was because 1) It would be quicker to parse and check, and 2) If you get "scene" releases of things like TV shows, that information is already going to be in the filename so it would be automatic. You wouldn't have to do anything at all. I like automatic Smile (The song by Ultar Nate is damned good as well but thats a tangent..)

I agree. NFO and XBMC's SQL database for videos. Nod

Thus depriving people who use File Mode (HERESY!) from taking advantage of it? It also means havign to store more information in the DB. spiff might shoot me :p

Well, NFO would be a nice option but should not really be needed, IMO best would be if XBMC could collect the media-information of each video when it is first scanned into the database (on the initial scan). Media-information such as; horisonatal & vertical pixel resolution, number of audio-streams with the language and type of those streams (DTS, Dolby Digital, 2.0, 5.1, 7.1, etc.), and also number of subtitle-streams and the language of those subtitle streams.

I believe JMarshall quickly looked into implemnting the MediaInfo library as a DLL but was unsuccessfull?

Oo

Gamester17 Wrote:MediaInfo library?

See this request for MediaInfo tag reader library for DVDPlayer for more information => http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/3824

MediaInfo supplies technical and can read tag information about a video or audio file containers.

MediaInfo is coded in C++, is cross-platform (Win32 and Linux), open source code (GPL/LGPL dual-license), and can be compiled into a DLL (Dynamic Link Library) or CLI (Command Line Interface).

What information MediaInfo will get from looking at a container:
General: Title, Author, Director, Album, Track Number, Date, Duration, and much more.
Video: Codec, Resolution, Pixel Aspect Ratio, FPS, Bit-rate, and much more.
Audio: Codec, Sample Rate, Channels, Language, Bit-rate, ReplayGain, and much more.
Text Language of Subtitles (SRT, SSA, ASS, SAMI, )
Chapters: Number of Chapters, List of Chapters (names)

Examples of just some of the supported formats:
Video: AVI, MKV, OGM, DV (RAW), MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-TS, MPEG-4, WMV, MOV, IFO/VOB (DVD-Video), CDXA (VCD/SVCD), Blu-ray, and more.
Audio: MP3 (Id3v2), OGG, WAV, PCM, RA, AC3, DTS, AAC, M4A, AU, AIFF, WMA, APE/MAC, FLAC, and more.

Checkout the MediaInfo website for more information:
http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net

Source code (and SVN):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mediainfo
Good idea? Huh

The complaints raised against such a system was the added time required for interogating each file to get that media info. I , however, have not personally seen how fast/slow that is so at this timei'm keeping all options open. I will see what I see when I get a chance to sit down and start messing with this.

Perhaps it could be a per-user setting then, where people could choose if they want speed or completeness of information. If it's painfully slow there's obviously no point, but background scanning of this information using unused cycles doesn't seem like a bad idea.

this is already semi-implemented in the branch fyi. however it was buggy so it was disabled and i havent seen vulkanr fixing it after that. that is the additional info loading.

I was thinking about this today and realized that the discussion earlier about sorting SD/720/1080 by resolution was really flawed.

Very few 720p movies are actually 720px high because they're not actually 16:9, so if the sorting is done by resolution it needs to be done by width:

SD: < 1280
720: 1280 <= x < 1920
1080: >= 1920

I'm running XBMC linux now so I can play my HD stuff, but I'm still looking forward to this feature a lot!
