Sounds great, John.
A YouTube plugin has been in the works for a couple of weeks now, and should be done here soon. It will be a part of the upcoming skin patch.
The major difference between this one, and the other YouTube plugin available is it can be packaged with the skin Secondly, it will play any and all YouTube video's, and will not give the "This video is copyrighted and can only be played on the YouTube site" error. It will also give a bit more information such as the video title, when the video was uploaded to Youtube, total number of views, full description, and who it was uploaded by.
There will be the preview, the small area to the right of the list, full screen, that has the buttons along the bottom of the screen, and when double tapping the video, will go true full screen with no controls on the screen at all. Simply double tap to go back to RR embedded full screen.
I have been working on the code to gather all of the information, and Blue did a nice job on making the iList with the thumbnails, and label arrays to display it all in the skin.
Sounds great, John.
WOW!!!, and with all the extra stuff, great to hear. Yeah, it does get pretty aggravating quick when you can't play some vids and get that dumb message. And thanks for the code change you posted for me. I've finally had a chance to test it in one of my rides.(Been busy, being it's yard clean up before winter in CT...yuk!) Well I think I'm going to keep the original code. This seems to work better. Sorry for the mix up, my bad. -->Now on another note... I notice a little lag using RRVoice. After I press button to speak command. It's about 3 sec for the mute icon to show after listening center mic pop up shows. Before, the mute icon and pop up synced beautifully together, almost instantaneously but not now. The only change I did was the new RR Nov. update which I don't think that has anything to do with. ---> Also could I use the * in KeyTbl for mousetrap to gain focus for RRVoice? I did not want to show my mouse cursor at all. Does this mean it won't work unless I show the mouse cursor? Right now I'm using a Sony marine RX-X11M controller with JoyconEX.This works great! I'm using the * RRVCON in KeyTbl for focus too. If I use mousetrap maybe the lag will go away? Maybe not? What do you think? Thanx.
oo if you're building a new youtube viewer, you should add a button to open youtubedownloader, which automatically grabs the youtube link from the active video. Then you can just dump them in your videos folder and rrmedia will pick them up.
Thanks but, did that, done that. No debug on in RR Config. No debug on for RRVoice (both areas set to False). RRVoice is snappy and all, it's just when I press the button it doesn't sync with the pop up and mute icon. Pop up...wait 2-3 sec....mute icon can be seen now.
Can anyone tell me what "Zi" is when I alt+tab while RideRunner is up and running? Trying to track down a sporadic crash from hibernate issue...
there will also be a "Find this on youtube" button that you can press and it will use the title and artist displayed for a song you are listening to, and show you search results for YouTube so you can play the video for the song. Or with RR voice, simply trigger it to listen and say "Find this on YouTube".
As for RRmedia, it is strictly for music only at this point, and will not work for videos.
