#12250 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Won't Fix)

Services: Allow AddVideoLiveStream without Videos Storage Group

Description

Currently the AddVideoLiveStream? service requires users to configure the Videos storage group. Otherwise the full use case for finding and streaming video content works fine without a storage group.

This ticket is to request that AddVideoLiveStream? be made to work without the Videos storage group.

This is for use with any arbitrary file on the system, or is it for 'local' file support in mythvideo? We're planning on dropping the latter in the next release as it was only kept around because encrypted dvd iso support was missing from the storage group code.

The former adds all sorts of security implications which the Services API is deliberately supposed to avoid.

This is for 'local' file support in MythVideo?. I'm writing a Services API client, and for completeness I'd like to support streaming 'local' videos. In 0.27 fixes, GetVideoList? is happy enough to include VideoMetadataInfo? for non-storage-group videos, but AddVideoLiveStream? chokes on a request with the resulting video id.

Resolution: Won't Fix
Status: newclosed

I'm closing this as won't fix. As mentioned, local file access in the Video Library is something we are not planning on supporting going forward, and have been discouraging use of since MythVideo? gained Storage Group support in 0.22.
