appletrailerfs 0.3.3.1-beta Released

A new version of appletrailerfs has been released. appletrailerfs brings you the Apple movie trailers to the Western Digital TV HD and your PC.

This release fixes some bugs:

* Most importantly it changed the database URLs, so you should definitely update because otherwise you won't be getting any updates. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but I was forced change the update URLs and put the files behind a script to block excess downloads. Someone, either by accident or ill intent pulled the file every second and produced over 15GB of traffic in a few hours before I took the files offline.... read more

appletrailerfs: Bug Fix Release for WD TV: appletrailerfs-0.1.1.1-alpha-wdtv

This FUSE based file system allows you to browse the Apple Trailers page (http://www.apple.com/trailers/) like a directory structure on your computer. appletrailerfs will be optimized for use with the Western Digital TV HD but does work with any FUSE OS.

This release fixes a bug in the start script. On some installations the filesystem was not started because the FUSE device node /dev/fuse was missing. The start scriptcreates this node now. The updated images can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=259619&package_id=320560&release_id=679574.

appletrailerfs-0.1.1-alpha released

A new alpha release that contains important fixes for the Western Digital TV HD device.

A direct IO mode was added that disables any caching in a temp file and thus improves the performance on devices with a very slow IO (like the WD TV HD or other flash based drives). This means that it comes down to the performance of the internet connection. To watch a 720p trailer live you need at least 6Mbit downstream. For 1080p 10 to 12Mbit are better.... read more
