#10189 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

Mythnetvision can't download RSS feeds

Reported by: louis@… Owned by: robertm
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: Plugin - MythNetvision Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The mythnetvision-plugin worked fine in Mythbuntu 10:10 (mythtv 0.23.1+fixes26437-0ubuntu1) however it doesn't work in Mythbuntu 11.04 (mythtv 0.24.0+fixes.20110416.9ba3ece-0ubuntu1) nor Ubuntu 11.10 (0.24.0+fixes.20110908.1de0431-0ubuntu1). I've tried to reinstall Mythbuntu but it didn't help.

When I press "Save this video" in a RSS feed, nothing happens. Before, I was told that the feed was being downloaded when I clicked on it the second time and I could, after some time clicking on it and view it or it started to play automatically after the download was finished if I just leaved the machine.

Some output form /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log:

The download-files mentored in the log file (/home/louis/.mythtv/download_18204_57971.mp4) doesn't exist. It had worked before the update to Ubuntu 11.04 (from mythtv 0.23.1+fixes26437-0ubuntu1 to mythtv 0.24.0+fixes.20110416.9ba3ece-0ubuntu1) as mentored earlier.

The dates in the log file is old because I've previous reported this bug on Ubuntu's Launchpad but concluded that is most likely have to be an upstream bug and after browsing MythTV's ticket system I concluded that this bug likely isn't reported yet or fixed. I think that this bug exist in mythtv 0.24 and upwards but didn't appeared in mythtv 0.23 and 0.23.1

This functionality has been substantially reworked in master, but I will not be backporting the new functionality to .24. In fact, since it's possible to view the downloadable videos directly in the internal player, there's almost no point in downloading them (though the download code has been rewritten).

Thanks for the quick answer. I find the interneal player quite unstable do to Flash. Anyway nice to know that this have been rewritten and will work correctly in the next release. Until then I'll download the shows directly from my PC and transfer them to my Mythtv box though SSH.
