Configure MobileMyth

When you first access MobileMyth you will be prompted to enter your backend and mythweb information.  MythWeb url is there to provide access to incomplete parts of MobileMyth.



The first time you open the site on each device you own the Frontend settings page will appear.  This after specific to each device.


(Right now only the tablet UI is working)  Now hit home and start using MobileMyth.

Some times you will have to restart your webserver after updating the backend settings.

  1. Thanks for all your hard work – this is really great!

    A couple of points:
    1. Dates in Upcoming and Recordings appear in American format and there doesn’t appear to be a method to change them. Mythweb seems to respect the backend settings but Mobilemyth does not. Most (possibly all) European countries use dd/mm/yy rather than mm/dd/yy.

    2. Accessing from outside user’s internal network could do with some attention. There is no security so if you already have a password protected Mythweb available outside and then install this then you are exposing your recordings, etc to anyone!

    3. Also from outside – many of the URL’s take the internal IP address, eg the streaming URL for a program so you can’t play from outside. Maybe you had bever intended outsie access!

    Anyway great work so far, thanks.

    • 1. Good point, will add that.
      2. I assumed the user would protect it the same way they may or may not have protected mythweb.
      3. Will be suppported via ssh port forwarding. All the images/streams are coming directly from the backend. You can see the settings on the frontend page to enter the ssh information. It is coded, just not tested yet.

      • Thanks for quick response.

        1. Thanks, great.
        2. Oh yes, will get googling to find out how I did that last time!
        3. I entered my internal IP (initially) in the settings and then tried with external IP (I have port 80 forwarded on home router but no other ports).


  2. I have to agree with Al, the work you have done so far is brilliant.

    I would like to suggest a couple of minor additions which would further enhance your codes use on an iOS device.

    1. If you were to add the meta tag to the html output, when an iOS user creates an icon on the home screen (similar to a windows desktop) it would cause your web app to go full screen as opposed to also showing address bars, page tabs, and the like.

    2. If you implement #1, then also adding would give you control over how the status bar is handled, of which I believe the settings I included would be the better ones to use to complement the tablet UI style.

    Kind Regards,

    • Of course the web tags would be parsed by the browser. :)

      for #1: <meta name=”apple-mobile-web-app-capable” content=”yes” />

      for #2: <meta name=”apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style” content=”black-translucent” />

    • I did have those added in at one point but there was an issue. Hell if I can remember what it was now… I’ll have to try it again and put it on the list for the next release.
