WEB.conf for Perfectionists (OCD) Feeds. Grab them Here!

Postby Dan_Aykroyd » Sun Jan 09, 2011 8:01 am

What's included so far: Apple Trailers, EpicBattleAxe Podcasts, GameTrailers Platforms (DS, Mobile, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Wii and Xbox 360), Shows (Bonus Round, EpicBattleCry, GameTrailers TV, GT Anthology, GT Countdown, GT Motion, Hour One, Invisible Walls, Pach-Attack!, ScrewAttack and The Science of Games), Types (Features, Gameplays, Interviews, Previews and Reviews), GiantBomb Giant Bombcasts, GiantBomb (Quick Looks and Reviews) and SomaFM Radio (all stations) - All 100% written from scratch, zillion-checked and guaranteed that'll work for you! 8-)

Hello guys,

As a token of my appreciation for this great and awesome program and its plugins, I've worked all day today fine tuning and perfecting my own WEB.conf from scratch. Specially, thanks very much to chocolateboy for his great pmsencoder and his support to the community

Since I'm quite perfectionist, very OCD-like, I wanted it to be as perfect as possible, and to display in such way in the PS3 for a seamless, quick and transparent integration. A couple of points I thought through that I wanted to be so and resolved with this file:

- I didn't like how when browsing Music in Video category (and vice versa) you would get the "No videos found" message. So, my feeds are divided in Music and Video; you will only see folders in each category that has items in them, i.e., you won't see radios in the Video category. That's why you'll get "Web: Music" and "Web:Video" categories

- As pointed out by SubJunk, why name the category "Web: Music" when clearly podcasts are not music? Well, that's part of the "OCD suite" too. You see, I first went clearly to name it "Audio" instead of "Music", but because Sony's XMB has the category named "Music", I HAD to stick to it for fully-OCD-completeness, so my category would match that of the system

- I wanted every feed to display a proper image instead of the default green arrow. In order to achieve this, I embedded correspondent images in feeds that didn't have one, so you will see a nice image, i.e., the GiantBomb or EpicBattleCry logos in the podcasts

- I wanted to have a great, non redundant, categorization. For example, I didn't like clicking the EpicBattleAxe folder and the getting another folder called EpicBattleAxe Podcast. This happened with pretty much every feed, that's why I decided to process every one of them through Yahoo Pipes, in order to be able to properly format the name, avoid redundancy in folders and allow further processing of the feeds

- Particularly, the GameTrailers site is the one I browse the most the whole day, so that one was the one that brought me to this task. Because of that, I wanted to have a really good tree to categorize the videos, so I took the job of creating a zillion (actually, like 15) of feeds to group them consistently. For example, you'll see a "Platforms" category with DS, Wii, PC, PS3, etc. within; another "Shows" category with Pach-Attack!, Bonus Round, GT Motion, etc.; and another "Types" category with Reviews, Features, Previews, etc. This allows an easily and quickly browsing of the content of interest to you

- I also used regexps to remove redundant or not needed information from the titles. For example, in every GameTrailer show you would see the category called i.e. GameTrailers TV, and inside every file would display GameTrailers TV - Episode 111, GameTrailers TV - Episode 112, etc. Now, with the process of every feed, that gets trimmed and you get a nice list of Episode 111, Episode 112, etc. Some other stuff I removed are the "Review, Preview, HD, Feature, Featurette, etc" in each correspondent category, since it was really redundant. Instead, you end with a great list of no garbage, processed feeds for your pleasure! :D

- I've only let unprocessed by Yahoo Pipes the items that would return a perfect match for the system, i.e., perfect names and thumbnails OK


Well, thank you very much if you read this far! :lol:Without further ado, let's get down to business:

-To use these, you need to copy the feeds in the block below and paste them in your WEB.conf file that you'll find in your installation folder of PS3 Media Server
- You will need pmsencoder to properly stream the web videos
- You will need this pmsencoder script to stream GiantBomb correctly. Just download it in a folder named pmsencoder inside the your PS3 Media Server installation directory. If you want to configure the location folder, take a look here

Hi Dan_Aykroyd...Sorry I didn't follow this board for a few weeks and missed your post when it first went up :oops:. I am very interested in seeing your WEB.conf if your still willing to share it, it sounds like your alot like me with trying to get these things right. Could you please repost it or let me know if I can download it somewhere :).

Well guys, after seeing some interest in this now, I'll be adding them back again soon! :D

As a sneak peek as what's new, I added the GameSpot video podcasts, but not the stupid 150k quality that are published in iTunes, no sir! I've done a lot of regexp on them to relocate the proper files in another GameSpot servers and now they stream at the highest quality (2000k)! :twisted:. I'm pretty proud of that, since those pipes took a lot of work and parsing to accomplish that. Hope you'll like it.

So, I'll add them back after I finish sorting a couple of pipes that were missing, then we're good to go

Chalk me up as another one who's interested in setting this up after you're done your new WEB.CONF.

Actually this will be the first time I'm trying pmsencoder. And the main reason is that you are so passionate about it (reading your post) I feel I just have to try it and see what it's all about :)

Is this still in development, or did I miss a link or something?

Sounds cool.

Dan took the original copy down because nobody was interested, he is now working on adding more things for now.

It will be complete soon
