New Cast Features

Have you ever looked at a cast list and wondered what else an actor has been in? Now with the release of meePopupProvider it's possible to view, import and filter by an actor's real name. You will need to update the evolution theme where these functions are available from a popup menu inside tvshows or movie libraries.


Multi Fanart

It is now possible to use multiple fanart all over MeediOS thanks to the great work from CRN and flclsd on our forums. You can set fanart to change on the main menu, download additional fanart from a popup in the media module or display multiple images in the now playing screens. The best thing of all is that there's no slowdown anymore for large fanart collections. Click on the image above to see the video of these new features in action.


Movie views in evolution

Just a quick video showing some of the MeediOS movie views in the evolution theme. Thanks to MrLafia over at meedios-france.com for the clip.


MeediOS Cairo Beta is available

(...with apologies to those without a sense of humour. *grin*)
In there beginning, there was radio. Though it did enthrall the easily amused, they longed for plentiful visuals. And radio begat television, which begat obese children and dinners wrapped in foil which could be reheated. Yet, within the glory of TV, Satan did thrive. A plague befouled the land: Twixt every six minutes of enjoyment, Satan did place four minutes of visuals hocking static-cling floor mops, luxury automobiles and low, low remortgage rates. The people cried out for a saviour, which arrived from upon high, The saviour said: Let those who repent call upon the name of myHTPC! The land flourished. The people worked in the fields, secure in the knowledge they could watch American Idol after the August Harvest. But all was not well in the land. myHTPC did meet with the snake in the Garden of Eden, who shared the apple of capitalism. And myHTPC ate from the tree of knowledge, for just 3 easy payments of $39.99 (plus S&H). The disciples of myHTPC formed The Following of the Tweaker, for just one easy payment of $49.99 USD and called it Meedio. Peace and plugins were bountiful. But, yea, all was not well throughout the land. From upon the purple mountain, a Juggernaught watched in wait.  For 2 years that Juggernaught watched until one day, it captured and pillaged Meedio, leaving it alone to die.  But The Following of the Tweaker believed in Meedio and before long it rose from the ashes faster and stronger than ever before.  And (...because it was Open Source...) The Following of the Tweaker christened it MeediOS.

The MeediOS Team (aka The Following of the Tweaker) would like to announce the first offical Beta release of MeediOS.  Believe it or not, Yahoo! acquired Meedio in 2006.  It's taken MeediOS 8 years of hard work, dedication, and overcoming a variety of challenges to the life of the project to arrive at this point.  In honor of Pablo Pissanetzky, the creater of myHTPC and Meedio and in honor of the early contributors to MeediOS (hdwagner, crn, karios, binary64, zag, skypichat, jong, jkm78, kricker, dj heemstra, reverson1, shawn bass, smf007, ufgraymatter, ccrocker, enemywithin, davido, walts81, dakkar, flclsd, banderson1311, artfulfox, enthalpient, wolfpack, and those who are not forgotten) we present Cairo.

Now you can truly view and manage your media your way.

Accurate file importing

MeediOS has traditionally used "tag masks" to import media filenames. This was great for the power user, providing a way to import just about any kind of naming scheme. Unfortunately new users found this difficult to understand so flclsd started work on a set of specific Movie and TVShow file importers. After many days of testing they have been released and quickly embraced by the community. Most people will simply have to install the plugin and it should automatically find movie names and tvshow details without any kind of advanced configuration.
