A Plugin is a program extension of VDR, which can be reloaded as a library at runtime of the program.

A plugin only needs to be recompiled if the plugin interface API version has changed in VDR. Some plugins are dependent on additional VDR patches in order to achieve the desired function.




Plugins last updated before VDR-1.7.0, can to be found in the List of outdated Plugins.
Most likely that list here is not up-to-date, you may want to search on the German wiki for newer informations.
