HubFlow (was WDFlow) is a little piece of software aimed at doing one simple thing: allowing your Western Digital TV Live Hub to display the information related to a movie or a series. The TV Hub is a very good media player, but the process to get information (title, duration, overview, actors, directors, poster...) is cumbersome and doesn't work at all with TV series. WD Flow is there to help this out and make your TV hub a more pleasant experience as all your movies and series are clearly identified and illustrated by a poster (the movie poster or the series episode poster) and backdrops (the images that appear in the more...

Totally instable! It crashes just after few seconds. Impossible to test it or use it. So bad. :-(

Did you install Java? Go to the FAQ and Help pages of the HubFlow web site


Yes I read the FAQ and Help pages on the web site. My version of Java is the latest (1.8.0_11) and my OS X is Maverick (10.9.4). Systematicaly, 12-13 seconds after I started the application, when I try to add the name of a serie or a movie, it crashs.

(Here is a part of the problem report:

Have you a solution? Because your application seems nice...

This is not a bug. I tried to reproduced it (sam a Java version, same OS version, etc...), without success. The error message is pretty generic, and is related to your virtual memory.
I have not received any feedback related to this on HubFlow discussion page - which tends to make me feel that this is not a problem experienced by most users.
Here's the plan I suggest:
1. Inactivate any anti-virus software you may have
2. Inactivate Gatekeeper
3. Remove all peripherals (USB, Firewire, Lightning...). Restart your computer in safe mode and try again.
4. Reboot, Choose the rescue partition, Launch the Disk Utility and click " Repair Disk" then repair Permissions

5. if still no success, then download the java app from HubFlow download page and launch it through the terminal using this command:
java -jar HubFlowJava.jar
The program should start, please report the error message in Terminal.

Hi, I'm the developer of HubFlow.
Regarding the availability for Linux boxes:
Well, before crying and complaining, it would have been more efficient to contact the developer and ask why the Java app was removed.
Maintaining 3 versions of an app is not trivial, and given that Linux represents 1% of the HubFlow users, it didn't seem worth the effort. Actually, HubFlow is developed on a Mac, so if I had to make a choice, the Windows version would be the next to go the way of the dodo.
Now that you are politely requiring the Linux version back, I might consider having it back. Happy?

This has been working fine for a long time.
If you have any doubts about trying it, relax, it works.

I formerly used it on Mac & Linux boxes where it worked _PERFECTLY_ as a Java app. But suddenly the author stopped producing cross platform Java versions & pointedly excluded Linux by only providing compiled Windoze & Mac versions. Why? WHY??

It works fine with my Western Digital Live & a Western Digital MyBook Live NAS. Just so angry that once again Linux is discriminated against for no reason.

This is a handy utility but your life will not end if the author decides to go WIndoze only which I assume will be his next shit act.

Interesting application.

I prefer to use a WDTV Live (non Hub version) that pulls media from a DLNA NAS or Samba share. I want to give this a try and see if it can work with those and not just a WDTV Live Hub.

This i want to know also,please post your experience.


Last night I tried using HubFlow to add info on an .m4v file sitting on my NAS. I searched for the title, found the correct one, pointed it at the corresponding video file (the NAS drive was mounted on my desktop via Samba), and saved the two files HubFlow made. I fired up my WDTV Live (the current generation one) and looked at my video file. BOOM, there was the thumbnail with the correct artwork. So at least in my case, it works with older WDTV's well.
