MythMediaServer Needs Some TLC

Description

It seems mythmediaserver has bit rotted from neglect over the years. This is not surprising due to its lack of widespread use and its use of libmythprotoserver, which hasn't received a lot of attention since Raymond Wagner left the project.

Known issues include, but are probably not limited to, the following.

  • Doesn't support the QUERY_CHECKFILE command.
  • Doesn't support preview generation commands.
  • Segfaults frequently in the socket handling.

I will commit a change shortly which adds support for the QUERY_CHECKFILE command. Do not construe that commit as me taking ownership of this issue. I am only committing it because I got that small part working before going in a different direction to solve my immediate problem.

Hopefully, John Poet's work on a "tunerless" backend will obsolete mythmediaserver. When/if that happens, this ticket can be closed.
