    There's no need for that since the PND system does already that for you :)
    Thanks :)

    If it is java, there could be some other variables that define the savepath for this application.

    I recently read this thread and could not find any .mediathek folder on the NAND.  I also noticed that queued downloads start after a few seconds.

    I had a nice email conversation with xaver the main developper of mediathekview. He optimzed the 'download window' for us. Now also the radio buttons for the resolution settings are visible on our little pandora screens :D

    Cool nice Information ^_^

    The .mediathek Folder should be in the Java Appdata Folder :)

    Thats the location where it should be stored. So nothing will be stored on the NAND.  btw: I noticed that the pandora/mediathekview has isssues if special characters are in a filename. So ensure that no charackters like (öäüß) are in files to store ...

    Hi Willhelm i grabbed some Files from you for Testing Things.

    This Version of MediaThekview contain your Files and no Setup should be appear more @ first Start.

    Video Playing over Wlan work now nice over Mplayer and a self compiled flvstreamer ;)

    http://qemu.openpandora.org/PNDs/mediathekviewTestVersion.pnd

    (only for Testings)

    I would be glad when you can test this Version too but please delete your old Appdata vor Testing and

    when some few Videos little stutters then use a Wlan Dongle on your Pandora ;)

    Aaand some Videos need about 10 Seconds to start because buffering,please have little Patience ^_^

    When it work will i be glad to help you to build that Files in your Version :D

    Sounds great! I will test this for sure. I am short in time during the upcoming long weekend. But afterwards, Sunday / Monday evening I will test your pnd. Did you also compile & add mplayer to this package?

     If you want I could add you as a maintainer in repo.openpandora.org.

    The included Mplayer grabbed i from the SMplayer PND


    and it seem to work fine.


    Let us try this Version first ;)


    Anyone other tried this PND?


    Had little unmount Problems and must delete /mnt/utmp/MediaThekView Folder manualy sometimes without plugged SD Card.


    Can that be because the Java PND that some Java Software not clear unmounted?


    My next Try when it not work is to grab the JavaMinecraft PND and insert the MediaThekView Software with Mplayer and others.


    Then it start ever its own Java Version and maybe it work better then.


    But first please try this PND and Report then :)

    hi ingo i tested recently your pnd. it worked out of the box. mplayer was able to play streams and downloads worked instantly. i noticed that you managed to get rrid of the initial setup windows cool feature. for now i did not had any issues but i will keep on testing. Very nice release!

    i would keep the name MediathekView or did I mispel it ? (instead of MediaThekView)

    I tried to watch the very recent 'elektrischer reporter' (ZDF) via mplayer stream. Could it be that the stream is catched at medium or high resolution? cause it stuttured (lost audio / video sync) in fullscrean mode. A work around was to download the stream at low res.

    Maybe this could be adjusted somewhere in the configs? I will keep on testing :)

    update :

    in the set settings i found radio buttons for resolution settings. For both Download and stream. I set them both to low quality. However mediathekview itself seems to send the medium resolution or even high resolution to the mplayer. I guess this causes the out of sync issue during the stream. I could ask Xaver about this "feature" ...

    I think that the internal Pandora Wlan is little too weak for streaming this.

    Have you tried a extra Wlan Dongle?

    That should work much better then.

    Another Idea is when the Mediathekview Human build in an additional tiny Resolution

    with smaller Bitrate than the LowResolution.

    I know that such Resolution exist because the older MediaThek Androidversions had it inside for playing

    over Umts or Gprs.Unfortunaly in the newer Android ZDF Apk is it gone and may Users where Angry about that.

    Maybe the Buffering Problem depend on the Speed of the SD Card too.

    I might work better when you start the PND from a fast USB Stick

    Thx again for testing and reporting

    hmhm I used an external wifi dongle. I described it a bit wrong. it actually went out of sync. The video part of the stream was beyond the audio part. Have you tried to watch 'elektrischer reporter' @ fullscreen ?

    Maybe its than better in Sync.

    I disabled ZRAM (swap on SD) could this affect the performance of the mplayer ? - Just an Idea, cause MediathekView consumes a bunch of RAM :(
