MythMediaServer Needs Some TLC

Reported by: gigem Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown

Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


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.
