@Frozin : Please use xbmclogs.com instead of pastebin, I can't acces pastebin.com from my office (blocked by firewall Sad )

@johnb : Add a property=RandomAlbum parameter to be sure that the script will populate properties using RandomAlbum prefix. BTW, if you don't use smart playlist, you should have a look at this thread

Thanks.

Which skin did you use ?

Can you post a screenshot of your smart playlist ?

In your log file, script abort because of videodb://tvshows/tags/85/ path but I don't know how a smart playlist can use this kind of path.

Can you also share your guisettings.xml file on xbmclogs.com ?
i"m using aeon nox 4.1.9.9. and I don't have an advancedsettings.xml. Also does this script handle latest movies widget? Because that won't populate either.

Could the script be used with Gotham 13.1 and its default skin -- Confluence to populate 10 last movies from a smartplaylist (e.g., kids movies) to skin widgets that are shown above the main menu bar?

By default, Confluence shows 10 recently added movies from the whole movie folder.
@Frozin : Did you smart playlist display the right TV shows / episodes when browsing ? And you are talking about Latest movie widget and your screen shot is a TV show smart playlist.

I think that you should ask on Aeon MQ5 thread how to set up this skin.

@revalex : No, this script can't be used with default Confluence skin. You have to use Confluence skin mod like :

Mikebzh44: it does display the correct tvshows, the latest movie widget is now working somehow, but using a custom playlist widget in aeon nox gotham does not.
Did you follow the tuto in the video on Aeon Nox 4 FAQ :

Hi, I'm getting "Fail on script: Random and Last Item script" message, It has started when I add a smart playlist to the home menu.
I'm using Gotham 13.2 and I try with Ace and Aeon MQ 5 skins and both drop me that message. It's only failing with the smart playlist cause if I point to my default Movie menu it shows the movies normally.
Please, set XBMC into debug mode, restart XBMC and after this error occur, share your xbmc.log file on xbmclogs.com and paste the URL here, Thanks.
Thanks for your reply.

Here is my log http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=307490 I just start XBMC then wait to error occur (wich was almost instantly), close XBMC and share log.
Hope you can help me.
You are using accented characters in your smart playlist name :

Code:
C:\\Users\\Angel\\AppData\\Roaming\\XBMC\\userdata\\playlists\\video\\Pel\xc3\xadculas.xsp

As your are Spanish (or use spanish language), you name your smartplaylist película (with a í). Rename it Peliculas.xsp and you will fix this issue Wink
Thanks, solved.

Only one thing more, now I'm not getting the Last Item thumb/preview.
See the image below:

Here is what normally it should show (bottom pic and plot):

Is it normal? How can I do to get that thumb?
Don't know, maybe skin related.
Oh, ok. I'll cleanse my previous message to not take much space.

Thanks for your help.
