[Release] GlobalSearch Script - ronie - 2011-09-03 21:41
this is an all-in-one search addon for xbmc,
it allows you to find items in your video/music library right from the home screen:
you can play each item right for the results screen, or use the context menu to play a trailer / view movie info / find all albums and songs by the selected artist and what more...
download for xbmc frodo: it's available in the addon repo.
let me know if there's any issues :-)

if you're running a nightly build, just go to:
system > add-ons > get add-ons > xbmc.org add-ons > program add-ons
it will be listed there

Love this addon. It now seems to be running properly for me. In it's early days I could only do one search and after that I'd have to restart xbmc to do another (or could have been a issue with the earlier nightlies). Now I've just done search after search with no issues.
To me, it puts in functionality that I've always felt XBMC was missing. One global search to find your media quickly. Regardless what it is. This does the job in spades. Now skins that allow custom home menus I add this in as "Search" and the household loves it.
Thank you Ronie, this is quite some bit of code you came up with

i'm not sure why, but the json calls to your database are failing.
mind posting a full Debug Log so i can check if there's some pointers elsewhere in the log.
