The Vita video player isn't the best, but it's all we have right now. This simple homebrew removes the need to import your videos into CMA/QCMA on your computer, one of the biggest issues with the standard app IMO.

I tested on my collection, but they come from personal DVDs so it's not tested with a wide variety of formats.

I don't personally use the music or photo app, but if there is interest I might add importing those into their apps.

What it does
* adds mp4 files found in ux0:/video and subdirectories to the video player database
* removes from database videos whose files cannot be found
* sets icons if found with same filename & extension .THM, .thm, .JPG or .jpg

What it doesn't do
* add files under uma0: for some reason the video player says "file type not supported" (uma0: mapped as ux0: works)
* check whether the media is actually playable
* create thumbnail (this is done by video app when you start it)
* set video size metadata (maybe later)
* import photos & videos into the camera app (maybe later)
* import music into the music app (maybe later)

Download and install the vpk. Place .mp4 files in ux0:/video and run it whenever you have added or removed media. When mounting USB as ux0: on VitaTV you might need to run every time you remount, nevermind it only takes a minute. Press cross to update the database or triangle to delete all media from the database (not the files). Now go to the video player to play your videos.

Updated to version 0.9 - now imports MP3s to Music app

* adds import of music from ux0:/music
* performance boost
* live update of "Added x videos" string
* fix for leaking file handles

* download and install the vpk
* place .mp4 files in ux0:/video
* place .mp3 files in ux0:/music
* run MediaImporter and press cross to add them to the databases
* press triangle to remove all items from the databases (leaving files intact)
* go to Video Player to play your videos
* go to Music Player to play your mp3s

Known Limitations
* music doesn't play at all from USB even when mounted as ux0:
* even mounting USB as ux0: and unmounting breaks the Music player (not really MediaImporter's fault)
* sometimes (especially on first import) you will get an error trying to play in Music player, reboot to fix and it should then be OK to import more without rebooting
* when mounting USB as ux0: you will need to rerun MediaImporter to add your videos

The Music player seems to have a background process that causes issues when mounting USB as ux0: I will continue to look into the music issues but this is at least usable on the Vita.

VitaShell can play mp3s from USB, maybe that's a better option for playing from USB.

Made a minor update release 0.91 with the inclusion of video folders as requested on Reddit.

Place your videos in ux0:video/A ux0:video/B... to get folders A,B... The video player only seems to support one level so I used the top level under video, which seemed to be the same as QCMA.

Links etc same as previous posts.

Good job. Importing music works fine,

Would be nice to also import music from ur0:
That is where I have my music stored (using VitaShell to play music from there)

Is it enough to add the path here and recompile this?

Edit: nope does not work. it detects and imports the mp3's but can't play it from ur0 :|

I've been using this and it's great. I hope you get photos figured out.
