Welcome to the Project-HomeFlix wiki!

Installation

Download the compiled .jar file and execute it, HomeFlix will ask for the first source you want to add, and load all films found in there. Additional sources can be added via the settings window.

Player

Since version 0.7.0 “toothless dragon”, HomeFlix uses the JavaFX Media-Player to play your films. Currently this player only supports videos with h264 as codec and mp4 as container. All other videos are played with your standard video player (Windows and OS X) or vlc(Linux). The integrated Player supports features such as Auto-play for series or saving your progress for each film.

Streaming

In HomeFlix 0.3.7 “plasma bucket” a basic streaming support has been integrated. This allows you to sort your favorite streaming title in HomeFlix. The streaming URL and a few other parameters are saved in a .json file.
Here is a example of this file:

{   
    "entries":[
    {
        "title":"Big Buck Bunny",
        "season":"",
                "episode":"",
        "streamUrl":"http://distribution.bbb3d.renderfarming.net/video/mp4/bbb_sunflower_2160p_60fps_normal.mp4"
    },
        {
        "title":"Caminandes",
        "season":"1",
                "episode":"1",
        "streamUrl":"http://www.caminandes.com/download/01_llama_drama_1080p.mp4"
    },
        {
        "title":"Caminandes",
        "season":"1",
                "episode":"2",
        "streamUrl":"http://www.caminandes.com/download/02_gran_dillama_1080p.mp4"
    }
]
}

Series support

The series support is divided in two parts.

  1. Series support for local files If you want HomeFlix to automatically detect the series correctly you must use the following folder structure:
  2. Main Film-Directory

    • Film 1
    • Film 2
    • Series Name
      • Season 1
        • Episode 1
        • Episode 2
      • Season 2
    • Film 3
  3. Series support for streaming If you want to add a new series using the HomeFlix streaming support, you have to use the following scheme:

{
[ 
    {
        "title":"Caminandes",
        "season":"1",
        "episode":"1",
        "streamUrl":"http://www.caminandes.com/download/01_llama_drama_1080p.mp4"
    },
    {
        "title":"Caminandes",
        "season":"1",
        "episode":"2",
        "streamUrl":"http://www.caminandes.com/download/02_gran_dillama_1080p.mp4"
    },
    {
        "title":"Caminandes",
        "season":"1",
        "episode":"3",
        "streamUrl":"http://www.caminandes.com/download/03_caminandes_llamigos_1080p.mp4"
    }
]
}
