[edit] Where to put things on Pony

DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN /d1/videos/ ! The Media Center will not see it.

DO NOT PUT MATERIAL ON PONY UNLESS THE LICENSE FOR THE CONTENT LETS YOU!

[edit] Movies

XBMC on the Media Center machine will scrape /d1/videos/movies/ for any movies. If you have something you'd like to show up on the media center that's a movie, dump it into /d1/videos/movies/ (be nice and create a sub directory for it). Either restart XBMC or go into the Movie Library, press C then Update Library to have the content show up in the Movie Library. If it doesn't show up, check the Videos window and see if it's there under Pony Movies.

[edit] Shows

XBMC on the Media Center Machine will scrape /d1/videos/shows/ for any shows. If you have something you'd like to show up on the media center that's a show, dump it into /d1/videos/shows/ (be nice and create a sub directory for it). Either restart XBMC or go into the Show Library, press C then Update Library to have the content show up in the Show Library. If it doesn't show up, check the Videos window and see if it's there under Pony Shows.

[edit] Random Videos

Dump it into /d1/videos/random/. Use the Video Window to find it under Pony Random.

[edit] How to put things on Pony

  • First off you need an account on Pony, check its page to see how you can easily get one!
  • The simplest method is to SCP what you want to pony.
$ scp -r /your/local/media/AwesomeFreeMove yourusername@pony.noise/d1/videos/movies/
  • There's also an NFS export with read/write access.
nfs://pony.noise/d1/incoming/
  • Remember to tell XBMC to Update the Library in the Movies window by pressing C then selecting Update Library
