DVDpedia Front Row Integration

Front Row Integration
We are lucky to have a number of talented and passionate users who expand on our programs. Mathieu Guindon has dived into the internals of Front Row and come out with a DVDpedia plug-in for Front Row. DVDpedia has its own internal full screen interface but for those preferring to stay inside Front Row this plug-in is not only good looking but adds some features, such as browsing movies by actor. The browsing is fun and launching a linked movie is seamless. As with most things, it’s better seen and experienced, so check out the video and download the plug-in.

This is a solid 1.0 release that is almost perfect for my use. I only wish it had a category for browsing the movies via my collections in DVDpedia. We started a forum thread if you have any other feedback.

We are pleased to add Front Row to the long list of Apple technologies that DVDpedia integrates with; thank you Mathieu!

College Radio ♥ CDpedia

college radio reviewVideo might have killed the radio star but that doesn’t mean radio is gone. At College Radio you can find and listen to college radio stations from all around the US, find out about new music and get updated on tech info as well. And since the folks at College Radio are Mac users, they’re using CDpedia to keep their CD collection organized, naturally. 

DVDpedia and your home theatre

If you’re using DVDpedia to launch your movies then Washable Dry Ink has the post for you – how to launch VLC Full Screen with no windows/controller.

Washable Dry Ink is a blog about (mostly) building a home theater around Leopard. And of course, they use DVDpedia as part of their set up. If this is up your alley, make sure you take a look at our HT Guys post as well.
