Whenever the MediaPortal Connector synchronizes an item to the MediaPortal Index, it will search for an appropriate proxy video location that can be used by the Video Preview Player in MediaPortal.
The Connector uses following logic for selecting the proxy video:
- Video that has the highest matching shape tag and is placed on a storage with "PROXYSTREAMING" method type
- As the URI, the first matching URI is used in order of following preferences:
- file (file URIs w/o authority pointing to local mount points are supported if StreamingS-erver is running on Linux)
- unc (needs to be implemented in StreamingServer)
- azure, s3
If no match is found, no proxy video is synced.
