LIVE Plugin for the Video Disc Recorder VDR
This package contains the LIVE plugin for the video disc recorder VDR.
LIVE, the LIVE Interactive VDR Environment, allows a comfortable operation of VDR and some of its plugins trough a web interface.
Unlike external programs, which communicate with VDR and its plugins through the SVDRP interface, LIVE has direct access to the internal data structures of VDR. This makes LIVE very fast.
Additionally LIVE introduces an interface which allows the direct integration of user interfaces for VDR plugins.
Currently this interface was implemented for the EPGSearch plugin. A substantial part of the LIVE web interface is based on this implementation. There exist plans to extend other plugins (like taste, burn, femon and others) with this interface too.
LIVE works even when these plugins are missing. LIVE detects the available plugins and adapts its user interface accordingly. Therefor it can happen, that certain functions appear and can be used only when the appropriate plugin is activated in VDR.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/vdr to activate the plugins.
