Since the removal of HTTP-API from XBMC(now going on 2 years) there is no direct method of randomly choosing a movie to play. A script can be created that can poll XBMC for all of the Movie ID's then randomly choose an ID. Then it can call the script with the ID.
Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this
Is there anyone who can help me with this? I managed to create a smart playlist with only 1 random film in it. From there I can start Cinema Experience from the info screen of the movie. But what I really want is a button on the homescreen that automatically starts cinema experience with this movie.
I know how to create a shortcut on the homescreen to the smart playlist. I even know how to create a shortcut on the homescreen that automatically starts the movie in the smart playlist. So it feels like I'm so close, yet so far away...
I tried overriding the play button in settings, but this really quirks up my XBMC.
