Re: Why no more plugins?

I am working on a project to update and improve the movieinfo plugin. In the process, I will be looking at ways to make it easier to develop plugins for UMS, and I will likely be developing other plugins as well. I would like to have the ability to add plugins to UMS.

Re: Confusion about Plugins and movie descriptions

That is unfortunate. This tells me that I won't have a good movie information plugin (at least, not yet). That is the bad news. The good news is that I am a software engineer who has been programming in Java since 1997. I might be able to get this plugin to work with the latest UMS. It may take some...

Confusion about Plugins and movie descriptions

Greetings I have been going over documentation and some of the entries in this forum, and I am very confused. I am running UMS on a Linux machine and have been putting movies on it to tet it with my Bravia TV. So far it is working well (an excellent application, by the way). One thing that is missin...
