Using MrMC as a front end to other media sources

Post by XX_Keo_XX » 28 Nov 2018, 03:07

Hello!

I noticed that Trakt has a play now option that will take you to the movie launch page of the content provider.

Example: I have a movie on vudu. If I select play the movie on vudu within Trakt, it takes me to the Vudu site directly to the movie.

Is there any chance something like that can be developed for MrMC? I have gotten tired of keeping my video library local but I also haven't found an interface I like that tracks my video library.

I have looked at movies anywhere, but they only support certain movies and I miss the way MrMC groups collections.

Sorry, no. MrMC is not a browser.

I understand it isn't a browser, but I thought maybe we could use Trakt to get the location of the video (the video ID) and then use a short url to launch the compatible app along with the location of the video. A friend of mine does something like this with plex on his roku, but it requires a bit of custom programing and event ghost on windows.

Is any of this making sense? I can get a sample of the code if it helps explain it.

Let him program something, that creates strm files. MrMC can use those, to STREAM your content.

I have a setup running that automatically EXPORTS all newly added IPTV VOD from my IPTV provider, to strm files (automated by Task Scheduler) and with those strm files, you can use any scraper (from MrMC/Kodi/Emby) to get metadata of that strm content, so you can use the libraries of MrMC/Kodi/Emby for playback, watched status and resume points.
