- Correct condition for byte-seeking.
- Correctly handle boolean commandline options.
- Enable check for Vala if any stamp file is absent.

- Work-around for an automake bug.
- Limit search slice to result size.

I got Rygel 0.4.10 working on Ubuntu 9.10, I had to upgrade a few packages using through Debian.org.

I'm primarily interested in the ZDFMediatek Plugin. My German wife would love to watch Die Rosenheim Cops on the big TV via my PS3. Currently I only get about 7 episodes of Neues aus der Anstalt.

2 reoccuring errors in my terminal window:
** (rygel:2925): WARNING **: rygel-media-item.vala:222: Failed to probe protocol for URI mms://ondemand.msmedia.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net/zdf/data/msmedia/zdf/09/12/091215_anstalt_nad_vh.wmv. Assuming 'mms'

(rygel:2925): libsoup-CRITICAL **: soup_message_io_unpause: assertion `io != NULL' failed

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hey Ken, "Neues aus der Anstalt" is the default configuration ('cause that's what I wrote the plugin for ;)

You can ignore the first warning. Are you able to watch those episodes?

In theory you could do the following:
copy rygel.conf to ~/.config/ if you haven√Ąt already done so. Find the section called "[ZdfMediathek]" and modify the line saying "rss=508" to "rss=454". You can find this magic number by navigating to the show you want to add and click on the RSS link.

But I cannot find complete movies of that, only trailers and still images.

The episodes seem to play fine on my PS3. Rosenheim Cops only posts one video and only for one week. They took the episode down and didn't post another one due to the Olympics. I'll play around with the RSS number. Thanks for the help.

Changing the RSS number works great and the wife is now enjoying German TV again. Is there any way to specify more than one RSS number? I've tried comma seperation and multiple "RSS=", but no luck. Thanks again.
