# This little script automates the transfer of media files from my PC to my XBMC
# media centre, which runs on the embedded Openelec operating system installed
# on a Raspberry Pi credit-card computer.
# First install the rsync utility on your XBMC media centre via "ADD-ONS".
# Use this excellent link to setup an ssh key for rsync to login automagicly.  
# Put this script in your "nautilus-scripts" directory select file/s to
# transfer then right click and select this script from the Scripts menu.
# Don't forget "chmod u+x /home/<user>/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ssh-transfer"
# to make it executable.

# Path to the "rsync" utility on Openelec.
