#2667 closed enhancement (fixed)

Added DVD movie animation to MythArchive

Description

Code is for SVN 0.20

Change 1: MythArchive? only supported Thumbnail images for the selected movies. This patch will allow a short preview of the movie to be used instead of the Thumbnail. To use replace the %thumbnail with %movie.

The change can work for all menus (main, details, chapters), however I would not advise using a movie preview for the chapters due to the time it takes to generate the previews.

Change 2: The mythburn.py for the XML Theme 'graphic' item was also changed to allow a image to be specified that exists within the theme path. The current version expected a fully qualitified filename to be specified.

Change 3: Modified the XML Theme 'graphic' item to include a image mask. This mask can be used to mask the %thumbnail or %movie to any shape desired.

Change 4: Added the '-l' command to the mplex command used for encoding the menus. This was done since if the supplied audio was longer than the specified menu duration, then the menu would have the same duration as the audio. Currently the silence used for the menu had a length of about 30 seconds but the default theme setting was 15 seconds.

(In [12204]) Add an option to mytharchivehelper --createthumbnail to grab a series of frames for each thumbnail.

Also it will detect what format to create the images from the file extension given in the output file (.jpg or .png).

(In [12242]) Make it possible to add animated thumbnail images to the DVD themes. Adds a couple of themes that use the new feature. Mostly based on the patch by pholmes but with a few changes here and there.

It's advisable to go into MythArchive?'s settings pages to check the new jpeg2yuv setting is set appropriately.

Closes #2667.

(In [12273]) Forgot to add this new menu music file in [12242].

Incidentally I found a great resource for music loops to use for the menu music at www.flashkit.com/loops some are shareware but many are freeware.
