#34 Looking For Programmer For VideoDB

contrib (2)
Steven May

I am running VideoDB with a collection of over 3000
DVD's in it. I want to fix some of the bugs and I
want to add some enhanced features. Its completely
ok if the bug fixes and features are add here for all
to share and I am willing to pay a programmer to make
these fixes and enhancements. Does anyone know of an
active programmer who is willing to work on the
project familiar with VideoDB?

    i did some fixes myself and added some features but i don't think it's ready to ship because I only changed my own theme so all
    other templates won't benefit of it anyway. I also made changes to the db (although only added columns/index):

    * tagging movies: own navigation that displays tagcloud and search for tags in Search
    * store and display the datetime when movie was last watched
    * added new&unseen category in Browse
    * more things displayed in movielistings (Browse): e.g. the genres, filename, ...
    * added an index in db to actors.`actorid` which speeded up the movieview from >7s to <1s (with >27000 actors in the db)
    * i guess some other stuff but i forgot them as i've been using it (modified) for quite some time now. recently applied my changes
    to v2.2.2

    my other plans:
    * enhance the Search, especially add a filter for seen/notseen/dontcare
    * add 'favourite actors' and also let user search for (unseen) movies with their favourite actors.

    if anyone wants i can give my modified source but you need to know how stuff works in videodb and i can't really provide support
    for it, or at least i cannot promise i will :)
    maybe one of the devs want to take a diff to the 2.2.2 release and look at the changes which shouldn't be that much. i can also do
    it myself if anyone approaches me about it and i'm going to try to seperate it into smaller patches.

    best way to contact me is to /query veal on irc.freenode.net
