BUG: Unable to add strm files to movies library
#1
This thread is a continuation of this other thread that I started in the plugins development section.

I decided to repost it here because I think this might be a XBMC bug. There is also a trac ticket for this error.

The thing is as simple as this:

I cannot add elements to the library if its extension is strm. The same file renamed to other video extension is added perfectly. strm files work fine for the tv series database.

I'll try to summarize the info I recollected.
1. Pressing "I" (info key) on a strm file calls the scrapper.
2. It shows a list of possible matches.
3. After selecting one XBMC gives an OK message window with the text: No Info Found! my movie.strm. That corresponds to the strings.xml text number ID 195.
4. The problem is not scrapper related (or that I think) because it happens with all of them.
5. The problem is only with the movies library as strm files work fine with tv episodes.
6. The same file with other extension works fine. Even if I use an invented extension like strv (conveniently added to advancedsettings.xml via the <videoextensions> tag.
7. The XBMC log shows no usefull info. Here you can see a sample.


Any help will be appreciated.

Jur.

I tried updating today to the latest svn (28745) and after a successful build I tried some strm files.

My surprise is that in the current version plugin urls are not correctly handled by CDVDPlayer showing this message on the log:
14:26:49 T:3600 M:968400896 WARNING: CFileFactory::CreateLoader - Unsupported protocol plugin
14:26:52 T:3600 M:968310784 ERROR: CDVDPlayer::OpenInputStream - error opening [plugin://video/myplugin/?video=12]

I'm gonna dig into it to find out more about the problem. But I just wanted to ask if this might be a simple temporary glitch due to the unstable nature of svn or, on the contrary, this is a change in the path for xbmc that won't allow anymore plugin urls as source for playable items...

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the heads up. My heart just stopped there for a short second (one with 98 o 99 hundreds of a second)...

I have exact same problem in Dharma as jurrabi some time ago, I have also raised a similar issue previously. Basically Ii would like strm extensions to be scraped in movies. Works fine as tv shows. Any assistance would greatly be appreciated.

+1 for this. I have a lot of .strm's that I'd like in the library.

Can anybody please help, this must surely be a simple fix? All we want is for .strm to be recognised as a file extension in the movie library as it is in tv library.

If you are capable of compiling your own xbmc there is a simple enough solution (Commenting one line in the code). Look in the trac issue for the code...

Thanks so removing the Line - if (extension == ".strm") return true; will make xbmc recognise movie files? I'm confused used why this changes the behaviour of movie files and why tv shows are currently recognised.

It is XBMC's general playlist exclusion that prevents strms from being added as movies or music videos. Apparantly TV Episodes don't have this exclusion; i'm not sure why.
