Check for latest version

Post by chippyash » Sat May 20, 2017 4:54 pm

Hi Mike

As building a linux version can take some time, I'm creating a script to run in a cron once a week to do it. However I only want to run it if there is a newer version than the one I have installed. Is there an API endpoint I can call to check for latest version?

Many thanks

If you dump the traffic when making an update call, I suspect you'll find just what you need to call to get a response. Check ~/.MakeMKV/update.conf for app_SiteInfoString and app_UpdateLastCheck from your local host.
