Updates on Grilo

Some updates on Grilo since my announcement post (in chronological order):

  • Juan is packaging Grilo, check details here.
  • We have bindings for Vala thanks to Víctor Jáquez.
  • Grilo 0.1.2 is released, check this post for details.
  • We have a plugin ranking system now. This is used when you request Grilo to resolve metadata for a particular media object and there are various plugins capable of doing so (imaging for example that you have two plugins for resolving the album art or the lyrics, etc).
  • We have set up a PPA for Grilo on Launchpad, details here.
  • I am working on a Totem plugin, so far I got a first prototype working and I can use Grilo sources from Totem enabling me to browse and play content from all the Grilo plugins. Now I need to focus on adding a few more features and configuration options.

      Actually Zeeshan told me about that D-Bus API today and it’s very interesting. I’ll check it out in detail and talk to you both soon 🙂

  1. Hello
    I have difficulties to get the vala test in the tools folder to run.

    valac –vapidir=/home/shuerhaaken/grilo/bindings/vala/ –pkg grilo-0.1 gr-test.vala

    worked but the linking against libgrilo didn’t work:

    ./gr-test: error while loading shared libraries: libgrilo-0.1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Anybody knows how to fix this?
    Thanks

    It seems that the linker can’t find the libgrilo-0.1.so

    You could set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to execute the binary gr-test.

    But it’s odd: -pkg grilo-0.1 should read the grilo-0.1.pc file which specifies all the needed the linker paths.

    Ok. I did

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

    in the terminal before execution. That worked.
    Thanks
