On OS X I tried using an alias to a media folder I didn't want to move into my designated MyMedia folder. It doesn't show up in the Roku client interface. Would a symbolic link work? (I'm not a CLI guy so I'm asking before figuring out how to do it.)


I use symlinks on Linux for that and it works great. Any idea what's different about aliases?


Apparently symlinks work in the GUI, but aliases don't work from the command line. Aliases are nice in some situations because you can move or rename the original file and the alias will still point to it.

It would be nice to be able to hit the play button at the folder level and let system start playing sequentially through the sub-folders.. I have 3 eagles albums and I just want to be at the parent eagles folder and hit play and let the system work through all 3 albums.. Does that make sense?


As the guy looking into the Play/Pause issue, I've discovered a problem with any ideas using the Play button: it doesn't get sent to the client app while displaying the folder view (Poster Screen in Roku parlance). I'm still looking into it, but I'm not hopeful.

We could drop down into a new view when a song is selected. Does roSpringboard (a type of layout on the roku... not to be confused with our installer) capture play button presses? Of course, if we do that then we can just make Pause/Resume into menu options if the play button is still uncatchable.

What if you were able to start playing in one folder and instead of looping forever in that folder it would transition to the next one from the folder above? This way you pick a song from your first eagles album and it would move through to the next eagles album when it hit the end of the folder.

I dont know if this might help but while watching a Netflix movie - if you press the select button (middle button) on the remote - it pauses the movie. Pressing it again resumes the movie.

Is that key treated differently?

Yes, and that may be what we'll have to do if want pause functionality. It would change the "feel" of the channel quite a bit, though. I don't think you could browse your music collection while you're playing music. If you left the Springboard screen, I suppose you could go back into browse mode, but then you wouldn't be able to pause anymore. I suppose I could whip something up and let people comment on it. This would be so much easier if all of the remote buttons always got sent to the app.

I don't think it's that it's treated differently. The app can decide what it wants to do when a button is pressed. Although I don't think I could stop it from moving right/left when those buttons are pressed for example, I could do something else on top of the default action because the app "sees" those events. The app doesn't see the Play/Pause button press at all when the Poster screen is up.

Yes, that would work, but I am sure there are others who might say, -- I just want to loop within the album --, so unless you are able to let the user select which they want to do, I wouldn't make the enhancement you mentioned below.

This type of functionality would maintain consistency in the general Roku interface as other "channels" already handle "pause" in this manner.

Great Job on this!! I just downloaded and have it up and running within a half hour. Really simple and easy!

Now for suggestions....

I know playlists are in the works, which for music will be awesome. This request kind of goes along the same lines.

What about a queue? Example: So you are playing a song and you browse to another song you want to queue up, so you hit the "Down" arrow, this adds that song to a running queue.

it would then be nice to have either a high level folder that is the queue, or a tabbed approach, so 1 tab would be the browse list and another tab could be the queue.

Thanks for all the hard work on this. It really is awesome.

Thanks for all of the work on this.

I was able to install and get the My Video folder working perfectly
The music folder however does not work

<type 'exceptions.IOError'> at /feed
(9, 'Bad file descriptor')
Python D:\Downloads\netguy204-roku_media_server-a602ef2\netguy204-roku_media_server-a602ef2\server\rss_server.py in file2item, line 130
Web GET http://192.168.1.253:8001/feed

The only file-type in the folder is mp3

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Mon Feb 22, 2010 9:48 am

I'm apparently using an old version already (love the pace of development here!) and so my remarks might be obsolete, but I have a couple of large images in some of my album folders that are being picked up as album art, and it really slows down navigation. Obviously there's a solution in my hands (delete or resize those images) but I thought it might be worth suggesting that the client could have a size limit for the images it picks up as album art, or perhaps the server could create a thumbnail image.

My quirky router might be the culprit, but after a long idle period within the channel and between uses of the channel I cant play anything without restarting the roku, reinstalling the client, and restarting the server. I'm sorry I can't report what version I am running; I'm not at home now.


Thanks for all your work, and I'm really excited to see an open source project like this evolving on the public forum. It says a lot about the community, and even more about Roku.

El.Wubo -

Thanks for the reply.
Pathing is correct -
Also downloaded latest version -

Below is the full traceback - hope it helps


Well, :-) that was a long one.

Your line 130 reported in that file is different from the line 130 in the latest version. Best I can tell it's complaining because it's trying to print to standard out but standard out has been closed. If this is actually the problem I'm a bit surprised that we're only seeing it just now. I've updated the latest version to log it's output to my_media_log.txt instead of printing it to the screen. I really should have done this from the beginning but your issue inspired me to do it now.

Please download the latest version, make absolutely sure you've stopped your old server (press alt+ctrl+delete and look for python in the processes tab) and then start up the new one and let me know if you have trouble. You can send me an email (look in the readme for my address) with the backtrace if it's lengthy.

I have the same problem. Having the server generate the thumbnails on the fly is definitely the most convenient way to tackle this and is what I'd like to do. I've actually got a bit of test code on my machine doing just that but it's not ready for prime time just yet. Hopefully soon! I'd say in a week or so that should be available.

I noticed an undesirable behavior tonight. For whatever reason (maybe my computer was asleep), My Media couldn't connect to the server, so it brought up the error screen. The only choices are to manually enter the IP address (which was already correct) or try again -- there is no way to cancel or back out. I clicked to try again, but that didn't work. The only thing I could think of was to press the home button, which did work to get me out of that error screen. However, as I was navigating through the other channels I kept being taken back to the My Media error screen after 2-3 seconds. I finally had to just quickly choose a random channel get out of the loop.

BTW, I'm using a602ef2.

That's funny! When I implemented the error screen I knew that was a possibility. I figured 99% of the time one of those two choices would suffice. I guess you're the 1%. :D I'm a little surprised you kept getting the error screen popping up. I'll look into adding a cancel option that kicks you out of the mymedia channel.
