Hi

I just found the Videotape player and installed it but I saw there's way to add local libraries... I was wondering its coming to the player as well as support for Movies Metadata?

Also I suggest you to create a SubReddit for it so many people can try.. Also curious to know if its oper source?

Thanks

Hi!

The local libraries are in progress right now... it's taking quite a lot of time as it's a complex feature, once a new library is added, it'll scan it and retrieve all the metadata for both movies and series...  basically a mini mini jellyfin without the server need. I'll still take a few weeks to be ready.....

We have a subreddit for videotape that's it's getting quite active: https://www.reddit.com/r/videotapeplayer

It's not open source, although some of the libs created with it are open source, like: https://github.com/villagra/jellyfin-apiclient-dotnet

Thanks

Well I was just browsing the Videotap subReddit.. you have done a fabulous job I was searching modern video players from months..
I know its taking a lot time & efforts for you.. I suggest you to publish a post on reddit so more people can find this as many many of the people are searching for modern video player.. this way you can find more contributors as well as beta testers.. Also if you want I would like to beta test erthe windows software too... 


I highly recommend you to post in these Subreddits

https://www.reddit.com/r/software/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/
https://www.reddit.com/r/windows/
Also JellyFin & EMby subreedits to

 

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the tips!

I'm working with the jellyfin team to have an article in their blog hopefully soon.... :)

I'll prepare a good app description with some nice images / videos and I'll post in those subreddits.

Thanks for the offer, I'll let you know once the libraries are ready to give you early access into the beta group.

 

Thanks again

 

PS: I would edit the post above to remove your email and not get extra spam :P
