ATV Black - beta 6 (w/latest mediaplayer installed)
ATV firmware 4.2.2 - jailbroaken with latest Seas0npass
Fully updated packages from all standard repos (apt-get update / apt-get upgrade)
Using AFP share.
After the last MP update, Lowtide crashes and restarts very often now while metadata fetching is in progress.
Anyway, examples of wrong metadata getting fetched - filename:
this is detected as “Lost - The survivors of a plane crash…”
same thing happens with the rest of the episodes in that season too.
Dexter S01E01 - Dexter.avi
is detected as “Firefly - Five hundred years in the future…”
is detected as “Prototype - Steven Karp is entering his Freshmen year…”
I could basically go on and on here, lots of files are so wrongly tagged by your metadata fetcher that I don’t know how or why. If it would be incorrectly tagged because of a words in the filename being similar to what is fetched, I would understand that there would be some minor issues, but this is so wrong that it shouldn’t really be possible.
It’s almost like you have a random() function your metadata fetcher class.
BTW: I guess the metadata is stored in the ATV? If so, could you add a “flush all metadata” option in settings? And could you do it so that if the AFP share is R/W enabled, that metadata in eg. mkv files is written to the filetag itself? (saving storage space on the ATV)
Maybe even you could write your own metadata file format (one file containing pic, txt in xml etc) that can be optionally stored at the AFP share where the current file is, with the same filename + fcm (firecore meta) extension?
Other than that, you have a great product!
