Trying to add an item to the playlist after the first one results in multiple additions and doesn't save.

feature_request_tiny.png 03:08  Feature request #6 - Option for subtitles
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Subtitles are nice, but Roksbox always shows them if they're present. We should have a setting to turn them off, either globally or on a per-video basis. Or possibly both.
enhancement_tiny.png 03:06  Enhancement #5 - Move URL outside of actual files
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Currently, the system works by sitting in the web root and intercepting calls to non-file URLs. This is too limiting - we need to be able to intercept ''all'' URLs in order to do things like turn poster images and subtitles on and off, because Roksbox checks them using direct requests, not the folder listings.

The problem is that we can't just intercept everything because we don't want to stream the videos through a PHP script (at least, I don't think we do), which means files still need to be directly accessible. So the easiest solution seems to be a parallel virtual directory structure.

The idea is that the entry point script would live in a directory under the web root and intercept all requests beneath that directory. It would then use application configuration data to map those URLs to the actual video/music/picture directories. It can then redirect file requests to the real location, which is in a different directory that is still web-accessible.

feature_request_tiny.png 03:33  Feature request #4 - Genre listings
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Browse videos per genre. Should read genre information from the XML metadata and generate a fake hierarchy based on that.

feature_request_tiny.png 14:21  Feature request #3 - Configurable slide show
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Roksbox allows you to add images to a directory of audio files to create a slide show.

We should have a UI for setting that up dynamically. This would use the same fake-listing method as video playlists, dynamically adding fake entries from the database.
feature_request_tiny.png 14:19  Feature request #2 - Option for poster art
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Add an option to turn poster art on and off for a directory tree.

The poster art is nice, but I've come to think it's not that useful. It's hard to read and doesn't allow you to see the option for turning subtitles on and off.
enhancement_tiny.png 14:17  Enhancement #1 - Investigate porting to Yii
pageer (pageer):
Issue created
Look at porting this to the Yii framework and do it if feasible.

It would be nice to have Yii on my resume and there's not much point in maintaining an ad hoc semi-framework.
