Writing Export Plugin
« on: November 02, 2012, 02:09:57 pm »
Hello!

Did anybody write an export plugin? I didn't find any documentation and any examples on how to write an export plugin. For import there are many infos, but for export I did not find enough info to get started.

Thanks,
Sultan

Hi!

Are you looking for this (export templates)?...
http://www.videodb.info/help/hlp_export.html

If you want to write a c++ plugin... for export I did not find any examples or information here myself. Would be nice if someone had suggestions, of course. But you can do quite a lot with templates.

Hi!

I would like to write an export plugin in Delphi to export movie data as an ID3-file (= TAG-File for the Netgear Eva 8000). I suppose with the export templates this is not possible, but I'm not sure.

Ok, I don't think it's possible either, because you're in need of binary and hexadecimal encoding, am I right?
Well, you could export all data needed in text format and process that with another programm/an executable you wrote in Delphi...
A "real" plugin doing the job in one step would be nicer, of course.

Hello Nostra?

Are You here? Could You provide me some infos in this case? I can't manage my tag files manually any more, so I need this export plugin. I want to write it myself but I found no infos here about the export plugins, only about import. I already made an import plugin for the hungarian site filmkatalogus.hu. I use it now since many months, so I am willing to release it to the community.

Thanks,
Sultan
