    An option to remove failed recordings would also be nice.
    Thanks!

    Not a bad idea but I'm wondering if we shouldnt ask sub to do this. If this is something thats not going to be done in gbpvr, sure it shouldnt be that much work to do it. I'll need to brush up on SQLLite, but not a big deal.

    I know almost nothing about sql scripting so I thought I’d do some utility author fishing and saw your post!
    Don’t go out of your way for this, I bet sub or someone that works with sql on a daily basis can point me in the right direction. I know where to start, but hate to spend a month learning sql scripting if I don’t have to…

    Hey, rwmech

    Your plugin has been put to use.

    Some thing to include with the next release is to maybe process the ".\gbpvr\jeff\" folder for logs. Jeff uses this folder for his plugin's logs, which would help him out as well.

    Very cool. Good to see it's being useful.

    I was thinking I could traverse the tree looking for any .log files but I dont know if makes sense to do that because we could end up eating up a lot of resources on this website in uploads of extra data.

    I think what I'll do is make a manually configurable XML file out there to add "directories" if you so choose, then the default user can zip up the GBPVR logs, but the advanced user can go in there and add additional search strings.

    I've yet to put any effort into a configuration screen on any of my plugins. I've got to research how to make that work. I wish there was better API docs out there it's like fumbling around in the dark sometimes.

    I am sure other developers can help you out in that area.

    McBainUK and a few other plugin authors have plugin source code on the wiki, maybe they will be of help.

    You might want to take a look at the weather plug-in as an example. The source is posted on the wiki site.

    hi, perhaps a video player plugin that makes use of the following function?

    /// <summary>
    /// Used to force the playlist playback to loop
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="loop"></param>
    void LoopPlaylist(bool loop);


    i dont know about others but ive been hunting arround for the last month or 2 looking for a) a program that will let me create a tickertape overlay during play back and b) the ability to play back video in an endless loop.

    so far gbpvr has been the only solution to A, and the support for B is in the program but no plugins support the function.

    myself and probbably my schools principal would be rather happy if a plugin suchh as the one described were to be created or modified to have that function

    That is of course if you are still looking for a project to work on

    Screensaver plugin

    I'd very much like to see a screensaver plugin that can run ANY (or almost any) .scr file (configurable). The .scr files have, I beleive, the same format as .exe files, so the task would be to put PVRX2 in the background and spawn a subprocess that runs the screensaver. I think we all agree that gvpvr's built-in screensaver is pretty boring

    Have you seen the "Windows screen saver" option my (quite old but still works) ScreenSaver plugin?
