Film Trailer Feed.

Hi,

I've written a scraper so I can download all the trailers from Apple/Yahoo etc.

I was thinking that I can easily adjust this to create a text/csv file of the film names and file URLs.

May be one of you is interested in creating an RSS feed from it (perhaps using Yahoo Pipes or some such) so people can have access via the Online Videos section, without having to download all the files?

If you are interested let me know and I'll PM you the address of a sample file to play with.

Regards,

Nick.

It saves them as the movie name e.g.

Saving Private Ryan.mov

It has 720P atm, but 480 and 1080 are easy enough to add. I don't do (and won't be doing) SD.

Regards,

Nick.

Does it save them all in the same folder?

I'm not sure what you mean. The only bit I am offering is the resultant csv file. That will just point at the mov file on Apple's servers.

Is that what you are after?

Regards,

Nick.

Maybe you could separate out Yahoo from Apple to avoid duplicates

There are no duplicates. That's already done.

This has me very excited. A select few have been looking for a way to pull down all the trailers for a while now. I'm curious about whether any consideration has been/was given to the Movie Trailers add-in. It would be great if this could utilize the same location for storing the files (my preference over streaming since I like the HD trailers), since it would eliminate the trailers being downloaded twice. In fact, using some more of the settings (such as trailer quality, posters, etc.) from that add-in might be very beneficial.

You guys are awesome!

Posters etc. can be taken care of by BMT. I don't use them, but that's an option at your end. I tried it and it works fine

Just save them to a folder that Sage imports from. I have a separate trailer folder and menu item.

Regards,

Nick.

Ideally I would want to see trailers handles 2 ways. First way would be ability to play back local trailers for movies already stored (i.e save trailer in same folder as movie). I use this app to automatically download and store my local trailers. When you go to that movie in SageTV there will be some sort of Icon you can select to play the trailer. Second way would be an interface to play back streaming trailers. I don't know how the metadata is gathered for this but XBMC/Boxee and MediaBrowser to name a few have been able to implement.

Above and beyond this would be an app that would randomly choose a few trailers (streaming and/or local) and play back when you select a movie to play, give you the movie theatre experience.

Okay guys don't get going to excited yet it really is all up to me or other stvi developers on how they want to implement this into their add-in and will still require allot of coding to implement fully.

No for movie wall my preference would be trailers only stored locally as I don't want to wait for one to have to stream from the internet. Or also support the way Dbone is talking about sense that app already exist it would be easy to just take those trailers out of the grouping method and add some code to make like "pause" play the trailers.

but I also like the idea of having them all in one folder so I will have to think on this one.

And yes that was my thought as well I have a "now playing" add in that is in the works but it is a little different from the one already out.

Tough not to get excited, itching to ditch some of the other programs I use

We're patient, just excited. We know this is a ways off due to your other projects, but figured we'd throw some ideas out there for you to chew on. I love the "now playing" idea, as well.

This might be a stupid post, but just making sure that everyone posting in this thread is aware of the trailer downloads feature already existing in the MovieTimes plug-in...

It's currently set up to download trailers for all the currently-showing movies at the theaters that you configure (your local theaters), and delete them when they are no longer showing. You can select the quality (480, 720, 1080) that you want. They download when the MovieTimes update runs, and those that you already have are not downloaded again.

Rather than bothering to go through the MovieTimes plug-in to find the trailers, I used dynamic custom menus to make a separate menu item called "Current movie trailers" that takes me straight to the trailers folder. The only "issue" with this method is that it just sees them as video files, and therefore I have to hit "Refresh media" once a week or so, to keep them up to date.

I have always thought - and I think I once suggested it in that thread - that it would be cool to have a search function - where either you could pick movies from a checklist of available, or else just type in names, and it would download the trailers if available. Even if you would compile your "wish list" and it wouldn't get them until the next scheduled download time from MovieTimes (mine is at 3 am), it would still be a cool feature, IMO.

Trailer Podcast

Hey Guys,

Have a look below, I am using this approach for trailers in the Online Videos, maybe we can improve it integrating with SMW for instance.
