Introduction to Grilo-Plugins

Grilo-Plugins is a collection of plugins (Apple Trailers,, Bookmarks, Filesystem, Flickr, Jamendo, Magnatune,, Tracker, Youtube, between others) to make media discovery and browsing easy for applications that support Grilo framework, such as Totem (some plugins are disabled in Totem).

User Notes:

Installation of Grilo-Plugins

Install Grilo-Plugins by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-pocket &&

To test the results, issue: make check 2>&1 | tee check.log. A summary can be obtained with egrep '(TEST|PASS)' check.log.

Now, as the root user:

make install

To test which plugins are installed and that Grilo-0.2.8 is working, issue grl-inspect-0.2 or grilo-test-ui-0.2 (the latter, from an X terminal).

Command Explanations

--disable-pocket: Without this switch, build fails if gnome-online-accounts is installed, because only in its next series, gnome pocket will be supported.
