AppleTV plugin: play movie using XBMC?

Postby jackfalk » Sun Jan 02, 2011 4:15 pm

Hi there. I have DVDpedia (paid) and the Apple TV plugin. They work quite well. Unfortunately the native AppleTV quicktime can't play most of my movies, so I have XBMC on my AppleTV for actual playback. Sadly, when I press "play" when a movie is selected in DVDpedia, it plays using the AppleTV Quicktime player... could you add an option to play using XBMC (if installed) instead?

I think it should be really easy -- probably as simple as

system("open -a /Applications/XBMC.app/ mymovie.avi")

Thanks!

Thank you for the feedback. We will pass on your message to the good folks at Para9.com who write the AppleTV plug-in.

Thanks. Also let them know that I can help with the development effort (is there any chance of them releasing the source code)?
