Title: Adding Game applications
Post by: archived on April 08, 2006, 12:38:41 am
Hello,
  I'd like to add in the capabilities to run start games from the orbiter on my front end media director?  I have quite a few.  How do I add a button similar to Movies which loads a screen where you can key in the title you are looking for?  Basically these could be put in the computing/applications area, but they are really a form of media, plus the applications area would just get too big.

  If this is documented somewhere's.. I missed it.

Bill

we support adding new applications, but at this time you need to know a bit of linux, since you need to install the app by yourself.
then you need to go to media directors page from pluto-admin web site and add the application to computing screen.
there you'll need to provide the path the app.

Will that give me the movies type of screen where I can enter in the title I'm looking for?

if you want to search for a title in the whole collection of movies you need to go to movies, and press search.

sorry about it.
can you explain with more details what exactly are you looking for?
what is the expected, desired behavior?
