sorry if this is a stupid question but how do u set the preferences in the ATVfiles plugin?
as far as i know, there aren't any.
yes in the new versions there are, but I can't figure out how to set them, is it a terminal thing? "== Preferences ==
The preferences can be set using the "defaults" command, such as:
defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles RootPath /mnt/Server
Finder needs to be restarted to pick up any changes.
The preferences available are:
RootDirectory: The path it looks at when first entering the plugin.
Defaults to /Users/frontrow/Movies
EnableAC3Passthrough: Boolean (unused, for future use)
EnableFileDurations: Boolean, disable scanning files for their duration, as it can
ShowFileExtensions: Boolean, show filename extensions
ShowFileSize: Boolean, show file size
VideoExtensions: Array of file extensions (without leading ".") that are
Default: (m4v, 3gp, m3u, pls, divx, xvid, avi, mov, wmv, asx, asf, ogm,
mpg, mpeg, mp4, mkv, avc, flv, dv, fli, m2v, ts)
AudioExtensions: Array of file extensions (without leading ".") that are
Default: (m4b, m4a, mp3, wma, wav, aif, aiff, flac, alac, m3u, mp2)"
btw Im on a mac mini
oh, didn't realize that.
i have no idea what all that means, but i'm sure it is fairly transparent. i just am rather new to this.
looks like a shell command (via telnet or ssh)
defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles RootDirectory /mnt/Server
What do you want to change? e.g. switch ShowFileExtensions "off" shoold look like:
As described in awkwardtv wiki Finder needs to be restarted to pick up any changes.
defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles ShowFileExtensions NO
1. Open Terminal
2. write this:
telenetPC:~ User$ defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles XXX YYY
XXX= RootDirectory, EnableAC3Passthrough, EnableFileDurations, ....
YYY= setting for that (e.g. Yes, NO, Users/User/...)
(Check the readme file for the available commands/preferences)
I store all my movies on an external hard drive called "DATA", so I typed:
telenetPC:~ User$ defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles RootDirectory /Volumes/DATA
And it works!! That is what I was waiting for
thank u all, that worked!!
