Adding support for .avi files

(1/1)

archived:
Hi,

I'd love to watch .avi files (divx5 mostly) in Pluto. But currently it seems not recognized nor supported.

Any change in future ?
Any addtional apps to install ?

Adding .avi support will also be welcomed for playing security motion videos...

Regards,

Rob.

.avi's do play.  You need to put them in the /home/public/data/videos directory (or your private videos directory) and then hit the 'videos' button.

If you put them in the 'movies' directory it won't show them because when you hit the 'dvd/movies' button it's only looking for files with the .dvd extension, which are dvd's.

What exactly is a "dvd" file? I presume that this is a DVD ripped to the hard disk somehow. How does this work?

A .dvd file is just a disk duplicate (ie dd) of the disc.  Basically it's an .ISO image.  The code is in the module 'Disk_Drive'.  It gets a rip command and spawns dd.

The reason for the separation is just to keep things organized, so when you hit 'music' you get music, 'movies' gives you dvd's (ie with menus, titles, etc.), and 'videos' is other video files like MPEG, AVI, etc. (usually recorded TV shows and the user's own video clips).
