Full Version: Create second "Movies" node that will show on home screen?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Network HDD with 2 folders:
\ Movies English
\ Movies Russian


To not mix movies in different language into one node, I would like to have two nodes on homepage:
- Movies
- Movies Russian


So i don't get movies in different languages mixed up inside single "Movies" node.

Currently i don't see an option to make this happen.


Second question Currently when i add movies Video > Files > Add Videos then Set Content to "Movies" it goes inside "Movies" library and shows under "Movies" node on homepage.
Perhaps what i need is to split movies library into two different ones is this possible?
You can use smartplaylists to accomplish this by using the "country" as a rule (this will use the movie's metadata so you would need to make sure that complies with your location-sorting).
Alternatively you could filter by using "path" as a rule and have one list with only movies from the "Movies English"-folder and another list with only movies from the "Movies Russian"-folder.
Then use those smartplaylists as target for you homebuttons.

 Smartplaylists part is clear, but i cannot create home buttons .
Try this recently written guide... https://kodi.wiki/view/Custom_home_items

It is based on Aeon Nox, but the steps should be the same

Quote:The first requirement for custom home items is using a skin that supports such customization. Most third party skins that can be downloaded from the Official Kodi Repository, or their Mod versions from the Kodi Forum, have some form of support for this. However, Kodi's default skins (previously Confluence for v16 and prior, and now Estuary for v17 and up) do not have home screen customization options.
this will not add another menu but add a line to the widget list
create smart play list
you need to find where it is saved (search for file name and copy in to skin folder playlists)

now edit home.xml
find 
<include content="WidgetListCategories" condition="Library.HasContent(movies) + !Skin.HasSetting(home_no_categories_widget)">
                            <param name="content_path" value="library://video/movies/"/>
                            <param name="widget_header" value="$LOCALIZE[31148]"/>
                            <param name="widget_target" value="videos"/>
                            <param name="list_id" value="5900"/>
                        </include>
now copy and paste this you can add this anywhere in the "Library.HasContent(movies)
  <include content="WidgetListPoster" condition="Library.HasContent(movies)">
                            <param name="content_path" value="special://skin/playlists/carry_on_ultimate_collection.xsp"/>
                            <param name="widget_header" value="CARRY ON"/>
                            <param name="widget_target" value="videos"/>
                            <param name="list_id" value="5402"/>
                        </include>
the name of your file will replace "carry_on_ultimate_collection.xsp"

the playlist file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
    <name>CARRY ON</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="title" operator="contains">
        <value>CARRY ON</value>
    <limit>50</limit>
    </rule>
</smartplaylist>

now edit Includes_Home.xml
<content sortby="$PARAM[sortby]" sortorder="$PARAM[sortorder]" target="$PARAM[widget_target]" limit="150">$PARAM[content_path]</content>
change to the number of movies  i put limit="150" as a test
