A question for Zip (Online Sources)

Zip (aka Mr. Chelsea Blue hehehe)

Is there a way to build a list of URLs and have Serviio read in the files into the Online Sources... Doing this one at a time is cumbersome and when I want to refresh the list, it is a tedious task...

Is this a derby function? If so, could you instruct me in the syntax of such an endeavor?

There is the Import / Export function in the console. It's just a file with ServiioLink entries.

Re: A question for Zip (Online Sources)

I built this long ago, but the samples are all out of date.
Problem is that the feeds expire whereas web-resources for each site find the latest feeds, but it does allow the feeds to be maintained in a single file that can be refreshed in serviio.

Re: A question for Zip (Online Sources)

Hey guys...

I really like the ServiioLinks (I never really paid attention to them before).. I noticed a series of variables set to escape certain characters that are translated in the URL... Example

  Code:
<serviioLink>serviio://video:live?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvurl.com%2FOYLlG&amp;name=NASA</serviioLink>


Note the variables for %3A (for :), %2F (for /). I was wondering if there is a guide for scripting ServiioLinks... I searched the forums, but didnt find a reference guide or anything.... I got the overall structure, just want to make sure I am coding the sob's correctly before import.

OR

Can I place the URL into the sob and when imported, Serviio automajically translate?

You can use this to encode the URL: http://www.url-encode-decode.com/

Zip... one more question.... if you update your existing sob file, it overwrites the current one you have running correct? Afterwards, the search index poller picks up the change and rescans correct?

The sob file is just a backup / or a way to share with others. If you make a change, you have to import it back.
