This project is about using Google Maps (including Street View) on any Realtek media player.
Static Maps API
Street View API
You can use this project in 2 ways: local and remote. Although both methods will give the very same results, whenever it's possible running script locally is strongly advised:
- you won't get caught so easily on Google Maps Free service quota limit
- it's faster
To use this method:
1) Download package: GMaps (13 KB)
2) Extract it somewhere within PHP www-root path (on PlayOn!X it should be /home/scripts/GMaps/)
3) Add following item into menu.rss (PlayOn!X firmware):
<search url="http://127.0.0.1:82/GMaps/maps.php?find=%s" />
This method is only recommended if PHP is not available. The only thing you need to do is adding following item into menu.rss file (PlayOn!X firmware):
<search url="http://playon.unixstorm.org/google/maps.php?find=%s" />
Now, while being in Internet Feeds, you should see new item called Google Maps. When you enter it, you have to provide address you are looking for.
As you can see below, usage is quite simple:
You can easily switch mode to street view, by just pressing key 5:
