Make ttvdb.py and tmdb3.py nice

I don't know that it happens to anyone else, but whenever I scan a large amount of files to my Media Library and have to download metadata for them, the metadata grabbers cause any video that I play in the meantime to hang and stutter. My solution is to add "os.nice 20" right under the definition of...

Re: How can I add authentication to MythServices (i.e. port 6544)

Endpoints that alter data must be an HTTP POST. The browser sends a GET, that's why it failed. It's documented in the table at the start of the Wiki (Requires POST column.) Not sure why the examples imply that it works from a browser, probably needs a major rework. Note in the email above the --dat...

Re: How can I add authentication to MythServices (i.e. port 6544)

The admin user is already there. The default password is mythtv. Since that's easy to find on the Web, I'd change it using the endpoint above. You may choose to add more users too. mythweb doesn't appear to use any of the protected services, so no you wouldn't need to enter a protected url user/pas...

Re: How can I add authentication to MythServices (i.e. port 6544)

If you're on v30 or above, see here: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Myth_Service#ManageDigestUser and it's friend below (Myth/ManageUrlProtection.) Turn on the services you want. I suspect most will choose All. You can add more users if you like. It is possible in earlier versions, but the above endpo...

How can I add authentication to MythServices (i.e. port 6544)

Hey so I am kind of not sure what I'm doing here. I have an Android client called Mythling that runs off the MythServices API and connects to my backend on port 6544. Well, I forwarded the port from my router so that I could connect to it remotely, and it works pretty well over my LTE. The only thin...

Re: SOLVED Different metadata since upgrade from 0.28

I am also having issues with metadata retrieval on MythTv 30 after an OS upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04 (MythTv just recompiled) . Something has definitely changed. I have not managed to pin down the problem though. When trying to search manually for metadata the system seams to default to looking in the ...

Trouble with HEVC playback

I have been having lots of trouble with HEVC playback in the "Videos" section. Somedays it will work fine, and my files will play, but other times it will simply crash Mythfrontend and the logs aren't really very revealing of much except that it usually has something to do with ALSA. In fact, the on...

Re: SOLVED Different metadata since upgrade from 0.28

Figured it out. There's a movie that came out or was added to TVDB named "Married With Children" whereas the series title on TVDB for the sitcom is "Married... with Children". Is there anyway to fine-tune the script that does the metadata scraping to specify if I'm searching for a movie vs a TV show...

Can I bump this since it's been a while? I would like to figure this out, I miss picking my favorite episodes with the help of the episode descriptions.

Re: Xubuntu 16.04 and Mythbuntu 16.04 End of Life This Month

I did some more poking around, and it turns out the likes of Xubuntu and Lubuntu do indeed not match Ubuntu's 5 year LTS support schedule, opting instead for a shorter 3 year LTS support schedule, but still calling it by the same name, which is confusing and misleading as all hell. Because of this ...

Re: Anyone want to help troubleshoot my transcode script?

Interesting, so it's supposed to hard-code them into the transcoding then? I don't see them added as another track, but I can toggle them off/on. I haven't had any more failures to transcode so I may just leave it be for now.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Anyone want to help troubleshoot my transcode script?

Yep the .srt files were named as you predicted. That's interseting because without the -scodec option, I don't get the subttitles included by default. Nor with the -a53cc option you mentioned. Strange thing is '-scodec eia_608' seems to work the same as '-scodec dvb_teletext'. Though interestingly, ...

Re: Anyone want to help troubleshoot my transcode script?

I've never used mythtv System() to run subprocesses, it looks like a custom wraper for popen. Not sure if it is intended to be used with non-myth commands. os.remove('%s.map' % tmpfile) should not do anything since sys.exit was called. That assumes System() is correctly throwing a MythError excepti...

Re: Xubuntu 16.04 and Mythbuntu 16.04 End of Life This Month

I thought they had extended it to 2021, but it looks like that doesn't apply to the Xubuntu flavor?

How disappointing. I have been running 18.04 on a new desktop I just acquired, and I really just don't see the improvement. In fact, lots of regressions if anything.

Re: Anyone want to help troubleshoot my transcode script?

Anything in the backend log? Have you tried running the ffmpeg command directly? Is dvb_teletext listed as an encoder in your ffmpeg build? documentation suggests libzvbi is only a decoder. Are you sure you have teletext subtitles and not eia-608/cea-709 closed captions? Why all the effort with the...
