Breaking change "ShowDVDTitleDuration" option

Postby leroy » Tue Nov 06, 2012 10:57 pm


I tried the latest Snapshot Build and noticed a breaking change.

I like the new feature for the ability for shorten the amount of characters given in the transcode folder because,
my philips TV has a limitation for maximal 63 caracters.

Unfortunately the new feature "options for renderer specific file name formats" is in conflict with the use of the option
"ShowDVDTitleDuration = true" in a renderer configuration profile file.
The option "ShowDVDTitleDuration = true" is used in the PhilipsPFL.conf for showing the length of DVD/ISO/VIDEO_TS folder tracks.

The use of "ShowDVDTitleDuration = true" generates a java.lang.NullPointerException and no folders or files are shown on the TV.

With "ShowDVDTitleDuration = true" removed from the renderer configuration profile file the shared folder and files are shown again.

I tried the token "%d DVD track duration (e.g. "3:27:15")" with the "LongFileNameFormat = " and "ShortFileNameFormat = ",
but unfortunately no duration is shown for DVD/ISO/VIDEO_TS folder tracks.
