    Lightbulb Updated Device Profiles

    Any chance for an update for device profiles? There hasn't been an application update in a while, and most of the profiles are out of date

    If there was a device profile creator application that would be a hoot. Some of the more advanced users could create device profiles and perhaps share them with the community, rather than the Mezzmo dev team having to try and support every possible device known to man.

    I'd pay $10 for a GUI-based profile creator/editor! If enough users would chime in... even if the profiles themselves were strictly community support (that is, the application is bug supported, but not monkeying with your profiles)

    I'd be willing to go a step further to help create / maintain a GUI base profile application. We'd need to agree on a development language / environment. Maybe something database driven with fields for all of the parameters like containers, audio / video codecs, channels supported and other similar options. A database driven approach would avoid writing a complicated profile file parser and database update could be distributed with a simple import utility to update various fields. Then new profiles could be added by users or modifications made to existing profiles with a generate profile(s) option to create the files. A default or default database restore could be used to fix things back to normal if someone gets in trouble and maybe add a field in the database to indicate a profile has been modified from default.

    A device profile editor app is a great idea and has been on our plans to create for some time. Unfortunately, we're very busy on other projects at the moment, but we'd be happy to support the development of an open-source device profile editor by members of the Mezzmo community. We would share our knowledge of each section, property and value in a device profile XML file so that the device profile editor app creates well-formed, well-performing device profiles. This app would let Mezzmo users create their own device profiles, tweak existing device profiles, etc.

    Paul,

    I am getting ready to head out on vacation for 3 weeks and will circle back when I return. I'll be interested to see if others respond. Do you folks have a coding language preference ? Python seems to make sense, given its use within the Mezzmo, Kodi and other similar technologies.

    No coding language preference - Python is fine.

    For user interface elements I would recommend using Qt, it has bindings for python

    Thanks Peter. I'll give this some more thought while I am on vacation. It's been awhile since I did a lot of GUI programming. I'll take a look at Qt.
