Description

The mythvideo part of mythweb will try to auto create a symlink in the data directory for mythvideo files. If you have defined multiple directories for mythvideo then this fails.

Hi kormoc,

Have you any ideas about this one? I also have a : seperated list of video dirs.

Thanks.

Hi, I had this same problem. My work around was to manually create symlinks to the various directories and then use the patch I just uploaded to modify the Video.php file in the objects directory to handle the colon delimited list properly.

Just name the symlinks video, video2, video3 and so on in the same order as they appear in the settings.

I am using this on 0.21 fixes, current as of today (svn 19785).

I added the other patch that will create the multiple symlinks. It works on my system, so I hope this helps others as well.

With the migration of mythvideo to storage groups, we won't be needing this in the future.

Since I recently migrated to trunk, I updated my patch to work with 0.22. It seems the mythvideo storage groups won't make it until 0.23 (#4623), so others may need this patch in the meantime.
