    Lightbulb Online DVD Library with ISO's..(progress).. Advice/Ideas?

    Ok,

    Thanks to Enforcer and a few others I've moved this to another thread, but started off with a challenge in using Daemon syntax to mount ONLINE ISO's which I create from DVD's with DVDshrink and other great apps.... The thread was:

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...589#post899589

    Since Enforcer made the "comma" comment I took a shot at how to workaround, and found Alcohol 120 does not need a "comma" to do a commandline mount, so gave it a shot, it worked, and at least can get me in process although I prefer DaemonTools if the comma is fixed.

    What I'd love to be able to do is:
    =========================
    1 - Have a LIBRARY of ONLINE ISO's / FOLDER.JPG \DVD\TheFirm\.iso, .jpg
    2 - Select the ISO which is essentially a DVD
    3 - It is MOUNTED
    4 - MPC picks it up and begins playing just like a DVD with integrated controls and progress in RR


    There are threads floating around with mplayer not mpc, but very impressed that app plays ISO's native with no mount needed. I burned a solid day+ to try and EMBED as and app but it seems to have DX challenges to not burning more action on that.....

    I will admit - some of this process is new to me specifically where I am trying to setup the LIST AS THUMBS, CLICK, then have the button controls to handle the MOUNT - PLAY. But I am close.

    For the record this is rather easy when I tested as static with ALCOHOL 120. I installed it, and for simplicity tossed the AxCmd.exe over in my c:\ root just for simplicity. So the MOUNT BUTTON or command would look like this....

    "RUN;c:\axcmd.exe|G: /m:"c:\pirates.iso""

    So - ultimately "being very honest" I am learning this every day and pick away at it with the killer Forum and Help. The next pieces will be the folder structure to inject the var% for PIRATES.ISO and also display and play accordingly.

    Any help AS ALWAYS is ever so much appreciated. I think this will be a very nice to have for everyone. Two things that would make this much simpler would be 1 - mplayer support since it loads ISO native like any other video file and is sick fast, 2 - daemon vs Alochol 120 due to the $$ and same thing (think the comma is the only issue there).

    Thanks to all...

    I watch my DVD Shrink ISOs with RR all the time using the built-in mplayer.

    Just gotta make sure you update your "Video File Types" field in RRConfig to include ".iso,.ISO," etc... Even works with the latest encryption on newer DVDs riped with AnyDVD.

    As for the "Album Art" just organize your images into separate folders with the .jpg graphic in each folder. You can even do a scrolling synopsis (rottentomatoes.com is a good source) if you paste it into a .txt file in each directory.

    There is no mounting need for this to work either and the player controls work as they do on any other video format. If you have an ISO split into pieces, just put them into the same directory and RR should treat them as parts (considering they're name accordingly).

    cheers

    Yea - bad wording. Some apps call it online vs offline meaning a local ISO/IMAGE vs PHYSICAL DISK. Same concept though...

    It's always the simplest things that get our type confused!!

    I have been known to open my PC and test the PSU because it wouldn't start only to find out that the power strip's switch had been flipped off! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Ok - this is not working so (odd) ....? MPC clearly plays the DVD when mounted with alcohol and or daemon so would rule out a CODEC issue. I tried from within RR, and tried with MPC outside of RR via open and drag/drop. It's a DVD ripped as an ISO with Shrink just like you mentioned.

    You've got me way jaz'd so any hints would be awesome - and not to put the cart before the horse on the synopsis I want to skin that as well or absorb an idea you have - is there a SkinTag for that which RR will pickup, and any formatting?

    Playing is clearly first as this is MAAAJOR FOR ME!!! What version of MPC are you using, any other thoughts?

    Thanks again

    may i suggest though... if you plan on doing this for in-car use, you might want to think about converting to divx or xvid to save space. IMO, there's not much of a difference between a 600mb xivd and a 5GB ISO on a lilliput running at a 800x600 resolution.

    BIG difference for home use though

    You could get rif of your huge 5Gb ISO's and make a 700Mb xvid or something. No mounting required! Who actually watches the special features?
