Unfortunately I wont be maintaining this plugin anymore as I have moved on to use Plex exclusively,
I think most problems you will encounter with this plugin will be due to not being updated with the latest releases of XBMC and PMS.
If you would like to take over this project please feel free. It is opensource and I will be willing to open it up for you if you are willing to take it
Just a small little plugin I wrote.
It basically reads all the meta data that XBMC scraped for all your media, and serves it thru PMS.
I know XBMC does act as UPNP/DLNA server, but it does not show all the extra movie info.
I hope someone finds it usefull.
And please send comments and suggestions
LATEST RELEASE 2013-05-03
- Added Sets category (thanks Anil)
Added an "All" item to movie titles so all movies can be listed in one go
Compiled against the latest PMS(v1.80) and XBMC(v12.1)
Grab the jars from the downloads page (pms-xbmc-yyyymmdd.jar, and sqlitejdbc-vxxx.jar) and drop them in PMS's plugin directory (If you plan on using MySQL take the MySQL jar "mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar")
start PMS, and go to the plugin's config.
click the button to browse to the XBMC sqlite database and select the video db file. (on mine (windows 7 x64) its at C:\Users\Frans\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\Database)
save the config and restart PMS.
When browsing your media you will notice a new folder in the root where all the XBMC media will be in
Sorts your videos exactly the same way as XBMC does, ie: Movies, TV Shows, Title, Genre, Year, (more to come)
Now includes connectivity to XBMC's MySQL database
Music now also works
Latest changes can be found on the file description at the download page
Displays the following for each movie/TV title (if available):
Watched count (sort of)
Fanart (Only as icon)
Posters (only the icon)
Reset watched count
For headless system
Install the plugin as usual
1. Find and edit PMS.conf (I'm on windows, not sure where linux's will be. Mine was at "C:\ProgramData\PMS\PMS.conf"
2. Add the following lines to configure whatever it is you need to (I think it is quite obvious which property does what )
For SQLite (XBMC default)
pmsxbmc.db.video = C:\\Users\\Frans\\AppData\\Roaming\\XBMC\\userdata\\Database\\MyVideos34.db
For MySQL (replace with your values)
