Ok - finally have both boxes working GREAT with MyMedia... I have the Windows app running as a service on my PC - awsome...
Great! glad to hear it!
Today I tried to play some iPhone videos saved in my Video path.
First, they play GREAT - excellent quality and sound.
Second - and more important question. Some of the phone videos are 90 or 180 degrees rotated. With still photos I can easily fix this. How does one fix this with Videos??
I assume handbrake can take care of this. Can anyone confirm?
Finally - ElWubo - How about building something that lets me play my videos/photos/music directly from my iPhone ala AirPlay? Are extensions possible to the python server to allow this??
See if the experimental web-based music player works on your iphone. While on your home wifi, open your iphone browser and connect to your server's IP address (xx.xx.xx.xx:8001) and select the music player from the list. Anything more elaborate than that will likely require creating an iphone specific native application or leveraging an existing app that speaks an open-enough protocol that we could support it on the server. Neither of those options are things that I can do for you because I don't own an Iphone. Any iphone developers that happen to be on the list are welcome to contribute.
Anyone want to chime in on .mov format??
I have some more info on the rotation issue when playing .mov format (iphone video).
The iphone can be held either veritally or horizontally when shooting video.
If I shoot a video with the phone help horizontally, MyMedia plays it correctly.
If I shoot a video with the phone held vertically, MyMedia roates the image 90 degrees to fit the screen aspect ratio.
I can use a tool like mpeg_streamclip to save the file as an mp4 format file - and NOT fix the orientation - it then plays correctly in MyMedia
Is this a bug in the way MyMedia handles .mov files??
