This is exactly what I am looking for...
any way to make this work on PMS release 1.30.1?

I've just copied the parental-control-plugin.jar from the download version to my installed 1.30.1 Plugin Folder... but that does not seem to do the job...

FYI... I'm using Ubuntu

I cant get this plugin to work. I'm running 1.30.1 on a vista machine.

I took the file parental-control-plugin.jar and copy pasted it into the plugin folder in 1.30.1.

It seems to get stuck while loading the plugin.

Here is the debug log:

Hi

I would like to know it this plugin will work on the last 1.50 release?

I would really like to be able to put a Folder.ini file that work with the PS3 Parental Control on my media folders.

Thanks

I'm running on a mac.

I've downloaded and expanded the tgz file.

Just don't know what to do next.

Can some one guide me through the process please.

Please treat me like a simpleton!

  • Start up PMS
  • Select the "Help" tab
  • Find the link "Plugins" and click on it.
  • Follow the instructions

If those instructions prove to be too complex for a simpleton, let us know what we can do to improve understanding.

I realise this a massively old thread, but if this functionality exists with the newer versions of PS3MS please could someone let me know? I cannot find anything suitable across any media servers but wish to restrict access to some folders that are not child friendly.

Cheers

I haven't used this plugin, but can propose an alternate solution which might suite you. With pms-mlx linked in my sig you could define two different trees, where you could set the appropriate one as the root folder when needed.

I'll try to illustrate it

Code: Select all
root
+ all
  + Movies
     - 18+
     - By Genre
  + Series
    - Game of Thrones
    - Tintin
  - Holiday
+ children
  + Movies
     - By Genre
  + Series
    - Tintin
  - Holiday


Then you can right-click on either 'all' or 'children' folder and choose 'Set as root folder' depending on what you want to show on the renderer.
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx

Thanks for the reply, although I am not sure I understand, or have actually explained what I am trying to achieve.
We tend to use the PS3 in the front room to stream the movies etc from the PC upstairs.
PS3MS shares three folders: kids moves, movies, and tv series.
I have a 9 year old daughter who is quite capable of working the PS3 to watch the kids movies, but I am also aware that I don't want her going to the TV series and clicking on Game of Thrones.
I would ideally like to pincode protect the latter 2 folders. It seems the original plugin, working with PS3MS 1.2 does this, and whilst its not the most elegant solution, it seems to the be the only one that even comes close to doing what I want.
It does seem to work on the much earlier version of PS3MS but not on the current ones - it gives an error when it tries to install the plugin.
Cheers

@CrazyC
What I propose doesn't work with password protection and doesn't really do what you want. You would define two configurations, one for adults, one for children and activate the one you want to use from pms according to who is watching; not ideal..
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx
