Adding features



I would like to add/modify some features concerning the way that pluto send movies and/or video informations. Actually, I can only see in the movies option the list of ripped dvds, the same for the video option. I would like to know how to change the behaviour of the file grid that is sent to orbiters in order to send somme additionals infos like author, duration,etc.

If I understand Pluto structure, I should add a new command like 'Show File List' actually implemented on orbiters (ex. Windows XP PC/tablet).
How can I add new command code ? Should I extend the generic orbiter class with new command or is there a simpliest way to accomplish that ?



There is a method in File_Grids_Plugin called File_Grids_Plugin::FileList which is registered as a datagrid generator. You can modify that method and add there any additional info you want to the grid, modify the number of column orbiter should have, etc.

Best regards,
Chris M.
