PlayON UPnP to Podcast Feed - Need help

(Continuing off this thread)

So here's what i've got so far...

Code:
UPnP2Podcast.exe "UPnP Server:Nav:Nav:Nav:+Depth:(Filter)"
  • UPnP Server -The name of the UPnP server to navigate
  • Nav - Path to browse in the UPnP Media Server. These compare useing RegEx's.
  • Depth - After navigating down the path, continue searching this depth for playable files.
  • Filter (Optional) - Only add files that match this RegEx to the Podcast feed

And all it does is grab the results and generate a Podcast feed out of all the videos it finds. I wrote it in Perl and then compiled it into an .exe for windows. I could also easily compile it into an Linux executable.

Examples:
All available episodes of "The Daily Show"
Code:
UPnP2Podcast.exe "PlayOn:Hulu:TV Episodes:D:Daily Show:+2"
Netflix Queue Top 50
Code:
UPnP2Podcast.exe "PlayOn:Netflix:Instant:Top 50:+2"
Season 1 of "Lost"
Code:
UPnP2Podcast.exe "PlayOn:Hulu:TV Episodes:L:^Lost$:+2:s1"
Season 2 of "Star Trek: TOS"
Code:
UPnP2Podcast.exe "PlayOn:CBS:All TV:Star Trek:Full:+2:s02"

But right now my problem is I'm not sure/able to get this working with Sage.

My first thought is to use CGI on Jetty/Neilms webserver, which if I understand correctly, will launch the .exe when navigated via a browser and then return the output. The benefit of this is that it would work straight out of the box inside Sage's Online Services menu. Another would be that you could dynamically generate a search URL using your existing recordings (i.e. - When populating a recording list for a specific show you could also mix in the podcast feed of shows available online using Sage's built in mediaRSS library). But I'm not a web developer so I can't figure out how to get this working or even if its feasible.

My other, less desirable, idea would be to periodically (once an hour or so) update a text file with the paths/metadata for the UPnP files. Then write a little java library that would read the file and return the results as a list for easy display/playback. This has the benefit of not requiring the webserver, but it also has the negative of requiring lots of additional work :)

Edit: Or, possibly, Online Services could be made to accept commands as well as URL's.

This looks promising. I modified Online Services to check to see if the URL is valid (starts with 'http') and if not consider the text to be the argument for UPnP2Podcast.exe, capture the output to a temp file, and then use XMLparser on that...

http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/atta...1&d=1253761102

And all of the ExecuteProcess and temp file stuff seems to be working good, the problem now is that the XML parser can't seem to find any items in my file. As far as I can tell its formated correctly, I based it off of diggnation's feed that works properly. I attached the resulting file, am I just missing something simple or is reading XML from file not working properly?

It doesn't look like...
Knows its supposed to be reading out of a file...
Code:
Thu 9/24 0:02:33.994 [ReProcessHook@13c007e] java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: c
Thu 9/24 0:02:34.014 [ReProcessHook@13c007e] Filename = (C:\Program Files\SageTV\SageTV\STVs\SageTV3\OnlineVideos\tempFeed.xml)
OK, enough wrestling with Studio, time for bed...

For those following along at home, I got a response from Sage on my issue...

Yeah, you're right about parseXmlFile....it's overridden in the core to make
it more optimized and doesn't use reflection. But you should just be able to
construct a file:// URL and then use that without any problem.
I'll give it a shot tonight.
