* First release
 
 
 
== Known Issues ==
 
* Files on AFP shares sometimes don't play even if they show up and are supported. (Seems to be a BackRow problem, try restarting the ATV.)
 
* Non-video files are played back using the QT player.
 
* There is lag when a directory is first visited since it has to load and scan all metadata, and no indiciation is displayed.  This will only happen the first time, future visits should be faster (as it only loads changed metadata)
 
* Metadata is not read from the media files themselves (ID3, etc.)
 
* Symlinks are shown with the target's name, not the symlink name.
 
** Metadata is also only read matching for the target.
 
** In summary, symlinks are resolved as soon as they're seen and otherwise treat it exactly like the destination.
 
* Some stuttering of playing music can occur when browsing files.
 
 
 
== Plans ==
 
* Support running an external editor (i.e. VLC) for specific file extensions
 
* Minimize delays on opening directories
 
* Use media parades for folders without explicit cover art
 
* Read ID3 and similar tags
 
* Cover art url tag in XML, and cache cover art

Description

Simple file browser plugin for Apple TV Finder. Think XBMC, it can play video files without transcoding and syncing/streaming them.

Please note that ATVFiles does not provide the codecs. Perian (http://perian.org) and A52Codec (http://trac.cod3r.com/a52codec/) are highly recommended to be installed to provide support for a wide variety of codecs.

Screenshot

See http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/ for more details.

Installation

Engadget has posted a pretty good tutorial on setting ATVFiles up from scratch on an unmodified Apple TV: http://www.engadget.com/2007/04/10/how-to-play-divx-and-xvid-on-your-apple-tv/

1. Copy ATVFiles.frappliance to this folder: /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/PlugIns on the Apple TV. You may want to create a symlink from there to some more convenient place.

2. Restart Finder. The command ps awx|grep [F]inder will list the PID as the first number, then running kill PID will kill it. The Finder will be automatically restarted.

If you have the Apple TV drive mounted on your local system, the correct path is on the OSBoot volume.

If you have the drive installed in the Apple TV, you will likely have to mount the root partition as read-write (using sudo /sbin/mount -uw /) to copy it. The command sudo /sbin/mount -ur / will reverse the above action.

Usage

Enter the new "Files" menu on the main menu.

It lists files in /Users/frontrow/Movies, so mount or put your video files in that folder. If there is nothing in the "Movies" folder the Files menu will not show up in the main menu.

NOTE: 0.3 MAY HAVE A DELAY UPON ENTERING A DIRECTORY FOR THE FIRST TIME WHILE IT CACHES METADATA AND FILE DURATIONS. FOR A LARGE DIRECTORY THIS MAY TAKE A FEW MINUTES, DURING WHICH THERE IS NO INDICATION OF ANY ACTIVITY.

Cover Art

ATVFiles looks for cover art in either JPG, TIFF, or PNG formats. It looks for specific filenames of the following formats (the jpg extension is an example, and can be either jpg, tif, tiff, or png):

For folders: Either folder.jpg or cover.jpg in the folder.

For other files: The same as the filename without the extension, and the image extension (jpg, tif, tiff, png). For instance, anchorman-xvid.avi would look for anchorman-xvid.jpg for cover art.

Preferences

The preferences can be set using the defaults command, such as:

 defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles RootDirectory /mnt/Server

To change a boolean preference, use:

 defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles EnableAC3Passthrough -bool YES

Finder needs to be restarted to pick up any changes.

The preferences available are:

RootDirectory: The path it looks at when first entering the plugin.

Defaults to /Users/frontrow/Movies (or whatever user the ATV interface is running as, i.e. frontrow on Apple TV)

EnableAC3Passthrough: Boolean, enable AC3 passthrough support in A52Codec (see 0.3.0 release notes for details)

Default: NO

EnableFileDurations: Boolean, disable scanning files for their duration, as it can be slow.

Default: YES

ShowFileExtensions: Boolean, show filename extensions

Default: YES

ShowFileSize: Boolean, show file size

Default: YES

ShowUnplayedDot: Boolean, show the blue unplayed dot

Default: YES

VideoExtensions: Array of file extensions (without leading ".") that are video files.

Default: (m4v, 3gp, m3u, pls, divx, xvid, avi, mov, wmv, asx, asf, ogm, mpg, mpeg, mp4, mkv, avc, flv, dv, fli, m2v, ts)

AudioExtensions: Array of file extensions (without leading ".") that are audio files.

Default: (m4b, m4a, mp3, wma, wav, aif, aiff, flac, alac, m3u, mp2)

ResumeOffset: Integer, number of seconds to add to the bookmark time when resuming. Negative will go back in time.

Default: 0

Note: Files with extensions not listed in either VideoExtensions or AudioExtensions are not displayed. Just because an extension is listed does not mean it will play without appropriate components installed, the list is mostly copied from XBMC.

When updating the VideoExtensions and AudioExtensions pref, you must include all default items (if you want them), the defaults will not be used if you override them. You also must use the array options (-array and -array-add) to defaults to update them. The extensions should also be listed in lowercase.

The list of extensions is also used to determine which player (video or audio) is used for playback.

XML Metadata Format

The xml file is looked for along side the video file (and cover art), with the same name and an "xml" extension. That is, "anchorman-divx.avi" will look for "anchorman-divx.xml".

Not all of the fields are shown in the UI, this just represents the data stored and available internally.

Random Notes about the data:

  • All these are optional
  • duration is only to override if the QuickTime scanning gets it wrong, otherwise it should not be used.
  • rating will display graphics for the usual ones (R, TV-PG, etc.)
  • the type attribute has some control over the values shown in the metadata, possible values are "Song", "Music Video", "Podcast", "Movie", "TV Show", "Audio Book". The default type is Movie
  • published is the original air date for TV Shows
  • not all values are actually used for display, regardless of the "type", but all are stored

  • Add new icon from Telusman.
  • Proper music playback with fancy UI.
  • Fixed holding files open, preventing deletion.
  • Actually set the A52Codec passthrough preference on startup, for real (AC3 passthrough should work now without setting the com.cod3r.a52codec preference).
  • Gracefully handle XML files in a format other than expected.
  • No longer stores a bookmark time when a file has been completely played.
  • Use mplayer for duration checking, should be somewhat faster overall now, at the expense of a much larger download size.
