You want to know if you can use xbmcplugin to fill a media list in a WindowXML python script?

I'm not sure I understand the advantage. You would not get the views or the sort by for instance.

Maybe I didn't understand.

Awesome, I've been hoping for something like this for a long time without knowing how to put it in words Big Grin

There's a lot of skilled python coders out there, but not everyone think it's fun to work on the layout. This way they can do what they do best: write code, and let the skinners worry about how things look Smile

I like it, works like a charm. But a quick suggestion:
Instead of having to browse from JooX Net -> Joox -> Categories, why not just skip the middle step ?

Just mount the categories path as your source.

You need a recent build and then do add source -> plugin.

Should the back .. be added by XBMC to plugin directories if it's enabled in settings?

It should be, yes. XBMC should do this for any directory, regardless of content. It is not the plugin's role to accomplish this.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Just used this feature in the latest T3CH, and it's very awesome Smile It looks great, and I might write a couple of plugins myself soon. This beats making your own window by a lot

Yes, so that python scripters could have the option to fill media lists in thier own WindowXML built GUI using xbmcplugin. The advantage would from the end-users perspective, the users would not have to use 'Add Source' and get the lists and updates options all from the same view/GUI in the script. Of course it would then be nice to have the same 'sort by' options inside the script lists views as well.
