XBMC modification to add File Output GUI

Project name : provide Output GUI for XBMC

Project Output : Either a new xbmc installation file (.exe) that has been modified, or a python script that produces same result

Description :

What is XBMC?

XBMC is a open source program designed for media organizer, i.e : movies, music

The program can be downloaded from [url removed, login to view]

It's a very powerful and highly customizable program,

unfortunately, it lacks a friendly GUI option to output a specific media.

i.e : save button or save as option.

I'm aware that File manager exists in XBMC, but it's too complicated for normal users

and i want to use this for public usage so i'd like to simplify it.

If you're not familiar with XBMC and never tried it before this is what you have to do to :

(Otherwise if you're familiar skip to step 8)

1. You should use 3-4 Box office movies for sample in this project,

(It doesn't have to be Box office movies, as long as it's registered in [url removed, login to view] or it's famous enough it's fine.)

2. Place them in a separate folder in windows explorer with the movie name on it.

i.e : D:\Movie\Titanic\[url removed, login to view]

D:\Movie\Avatar\[url removed, login to view]

3. Download XBMC from [url removed, login to view]

install and run it.

4. Go to Settings > Appearance > Skin and install Transparency Skin

6. Go to main menu > Videos > Add videos, and enter any folder in your PC that contains movies.

for this example, it's D:\Movie.

7. Pick Movies on top right and for scrappers use [url removed, login to view],

it will scan your movies and look for its metadata in [url removed, login to view]

8. Back to main menu, choose videos, then move your mouse to left and pick FANART View, and you'll have same view as my pic below :

[url removed, login to view]

On skin level, this window on my pic is [url removed, login to view]

9. Now i want it to be modified by adding several functions to support output GUI:

[url removed, login to view]

- Checkmark(s) that can be single or many, to let user choose which movies he want to download

- Save button which calls the savedialogwindow (common in windows program) so that user can choose where he wants to download the movie.

- When that checkmark is ticked, it should select ALL files contained in movie's folder (including its subfolders), it must be all files

because sometimes there's also files like subtitles. That way it works just like windows explorer.

- Unmark button control to erase all checkmarks.

An example of savedialogwindow:

[url removed, login to view]

This function is not available in the skin customization because on that level XBMC does not allow calling IO method.

So this modification requires either :

a. Recompiling the XBMC using its source code

The source code and the recompiling method can be found in

[url removed, login to view]:Compile_XBMC_for_Windows

b. Creating python script

I'm not 100% sure if it's possible, since i don't know the extend of customization allowed via python

But technically this should be easier since we don't have to recompile it.

[url removed, login to view]

Both methods are welcomed as long as the produce the same result,

but python script is prefered if it's possible.
