I am still working on the update and hope to have something that someone can test .strms on soon. I currently can only get back to the project for an hour at a time
The problem I had was that .strms didnt play nicely when the addon added them to a normal XBMC playlist (which is how the random list works). Hopefully that wont exist in the new one, but as I dont know the cause of the problem I cant be certain.
As for profiles, I haven't looked at doing anything with those yet. I think the best workaround is to have a different smart playlist for each person. FYI, the new version wont have a way to filter the shows by genre or rating, and will require the use of smart playlists for that purpose. Seemed easier to implement and smart playlists can do a lot more than my filtering could ever do.
On the idea of adding movies, its good, but I would need to give it lots more thought on how to implement it. Suggestions welcomed
As for the length of the list, the new version will have an increased limit to 50. In the meantime you can make the change yourself by finding where the addon is installed, going to the resources folder and editing the Settings.xml .
Just find where it says this:
<setting id="length" label="32010" type="slider" visible="!eq(-5,0)" subsetting="true" default="5" range="1,1,20" option="int" />
and change range="1,1,20" to range="1,1,whateveryouwant"
