    Totem is now a front-end for mythtv?

    I just read about Gnome 2.22's new features and a new plugin for Totem. Could be useful?

    Code:
    Totem Makes Friends With MythTV, YouTube: 
    While GNOME's movie player, Totem, is far from being a 
    new project, in GNOME 2.22 are several enticing additions. 
    Totem 2.22 features plugins for YouTube and MythTV.
     The YouTube plug-in allows you to search and browse 
    YouTube.com video files all within Totem. The MythTV 
    plugin for GNOME allows you to view recordings from a
     MythTV server as well as view live TV. We have 
    especially enjoyed the MythTV plug-in and look forward to
     its continued development. Two other new Totem 
    plug-ins are Publish and Tracker, which allows you to
     share your current playlist via HTTP and search for
     videos, respectively. The Totem 2.21/2.22 branch 
    also contains other improvements and fixes for this
     movie player.

    There are still a few requirements that need to be implemented for this to happen before Hardy. In the current implementation, they are not all feasible due to licensing, but I'm talking with upstream about it.

    Sounds pretty neat though eh?

    I was under the impression that this is in for 2.20 so I was going to compile hardy's totem 2.21.90 for gutsy just to check this out. So it's not currently in hardy but it is in current development version of gnome or neither?

    First heard mention of it here, also mentions youtube functionality.

    Saw the youtube plugin here:
    http://tecnocode.co.uk/?page=blog&ac...iew_item&id=63

    Btw, is there any screens of totem using a mythbackend? Does it behave like a normal frontend? I'd be nice to see some pics to see it in action.

    This isn't in hardy yet. gmyth just entered NEW today. https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/+queue
    After it is accepted by archive admins, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad needs to be rebuilt against it (which the upload is in dependency wait for gmyth as I write this).
    After that, gmyth has to be promoted to main, and then lastly totem can be built against it.

    If you want to try it for gutsy, pull the source package from NEW, pull the upload that is in dep wait for the gstreamer plugins, and then pull totem, and add libgmyth-dev to the build dependencies.

    I'll try to take some screenshots of what it looks like, but its basically a list of recordings on the right side. When you open one up, it goes into streaming mode off the backend. Skipping functionality isn't in it yet, so no comm skips or anything fun like that.

    No GUI that I can see yet for controlling live tv other than giving it URLs that are myth://

    The updates hit hardy as of today. I'm working on getting them into debian too, so this should trickle around everywhere soon.

    Does this plugin require an 8.04 mythbuntu backend? (rather than 7.10)

    I got it running off my 7.10 backend. Works a treat.

    All I had to do was jump into gconf-editor and specify the IP address and password here:


    The automatic codec installer worked a treat. Correctly identified the required codec packages and installed them without issue.

    The only problems I see are:
    - Video/Audio sync is off
    - No seeking
    - Deinterlace does not work
    However I think these are more problems with the codec than the plugin (same problems when I play the mpg file directory from my recordings directory).

    Also, I think the 'Configure' button in the 'Configure Plugins' dialog of Totem would be good place to add a GUI to configure backend login details so we don't need to use gconf.
