How to identify file in Digital Media Server? RRS feed

  • Hi,

    Add some information,

    If I put the DMS's file to playlist file.
    And then, opening the playlist file by other edit tool (NotePad, UltraEdit)
    I can see some information in "media src" tag for this DMS's file


    <?wpl version="1.0"?>
        <meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft Windows Playlist API"/>        
        <meta name="IsNetworkFeed" content="0"/>        
        <meta name="ItemCount" content="1"/>
          <media src="dlna-playsingle://uuid:435dec11-fcdb-40b4-8a6c-7dd97cd1df0a?sid=urn:upnp-org:serviceId:ContentDirectory&amp;iid={8D1C63E5-E097-4603-8E4F-0B5B143A718C}.0.8" trackTitle="We're Going on a Bear Hunt.wmv - YouTube"/>

  • Hi,

    I'm not clear your point. The file->DisplayName can distinguish the media files. Also, you can combine the folder name with file name to distinguish.

    You can get these value in the Scenario1::LoadMediaFiles() function in locatVideo.xaml.cpp

  • Hi,

    The key point is "if I put the same file in different folder"
    For example:
    I have a file(abc.txt), and I put it in two folders(folder1 and folder2)

    And then, in the Scenario1::LoadMediaFiles() function in locatVideo.xaml.cpp
    Try to get the abc.txt's Path and FolderRelativeId property, and compare with other abc.txt
    The result is no different.
    I can't distinguish which file in folder1 or in folder2

  • The workaround for this is to give the two files different file names. Another option would be for you to ignore duplicate file names as WMP does.
