More robust export options...
« on: November 03, 2013, 02:25:12 pm »
Like a few other people, I've been using PVD to generate XML for use with the Roksbox app for Roku. And there are a few features that I feel would make this process much easier...

1.) Export individual movies and TV episodes as individual XML files. Right now, when using the 'XML export' option, everything gets exported into a single XML file. It would be nice if you could right click on either a movie or TV episode, and be able to export JUST that movie or episode into an XML file at a particular file location.

2.) Batch export as individual XML files. Going hand-in-hand with the previous feature, it would be nice to choose movies or episodes at a given depth (root level, a specific TV show (encompassing all of its episodes across all seasons), or a specific season of a TV show (encompassing all of the episodes from that season) and export all of the contents at that level into individual XML files at a particular file location.

If it's already possible to do what I'm describing with creative template use, I apologize.

You can't export selected movies, but there is a trick to produce an individual file for each movie record. You can take a look at "Web Pages(Index&Movies)" template. It creates an index page and an individual page for each movie.

I do have plans to implement some kind of an export for selected records in future.
