Incorporated the json vs. simplejson speed tests.
please try the updated github version to see if there are any regressions

RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - butchabay - 2013-09-22

Hi Martijn, thanx for the update ! Don't know if the updated version was intended to solve the problem i've posted with the path special://skin/playlists ...
Tested with latest nightly 22.09.2013 but my problem still persists.

Just something else: if i click on that playlist it opens as it should, so the path special://skin/playlists ...is working, but the widgets are not appearing on home.

Cheers

Martijn.

I've just try this new release with database and guisettings from this topic :

Comparing with this results :

RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - Martijn - 2013-09-23

nothing i can help with. JSON-queries are internal XBMC.
i only used the selection to find the best method available.
if you could test with a nightly version if there's any progress done there. I know there will be some more improvement


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - mikebzh44 - 2013-09-23

OK, I will test this with a Gotham nightly.


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - Martijn - 2013-09-23

i do plan to bump to python 2.7.5 which will increase the JSON decoding by 15x or so but that has no effect on the query time


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - SpaceMonkey - 2013-09-23

Any chance of "premiered" property for episodes?


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - mikebzh44 - 2013-09-24

I have try with Gotham (13.0-ALPHA7 Git:20130831-2da9c97) and the big library from Legion455 but it's not faster than Fordo (12.2) :

Code:

@Martijn, did you think running the last nightly could speed up script ?

@SpaceMonkey : Try the latest release from GITHUB, %s.%d.Premiered property for episodes just added Wink


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - Martijn - 2013-09-24

There could have been some database query improvements since Frodo.


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - mikebzh44 - 2013-09-24

Results with latest available nightly (13.0-ALPHA8 Git:20130922-5aef1c5) :

Times are worse but I'm testing on my professional laptop,


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - SpaceMonkey - 2013-10-24

It seems that the current XBMC repo version does not like spaces in the playlist name?

For example:

Playlist file name: Horror Movies.xsp
Smart playlist name: <name>Horror Movies</name>
Result: http://pastebin.com/Qf7RD9Hz

If i rename the playlist to <name>Horror</name> it works without errors, and what's weird, i can rename it back to <name>Horror Movies</name> and it still works.

This is how i run the script:

PHP Code:
<onload condition="System.HasAddon(script.randomandlastitems) + Skin.HasSetting(EnableWidgets) + Skin.HasSetting(CustomWidget1) + !IsEmpty(Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Path)) + [Stringcompare(Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Type),Video Playlist) | Stringcompare(Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Type),Music Playlist)]">RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,playlist=$INFO[Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Path)],method=Last,limit=10,unwatched=True,resume=False,property=CustomWidget1Recent)</onload>
    <
onload condition="System.HasAddon(script.randomandlastitems) + Skin.HasSetting(EnableWidgets) + Skin.HasSetting(CustomWidget1) + !IsEmpty(Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Path)) + Stringcompare(Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Type),Video Playlist)">RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,playlist=$INFO[Skin.String(CustomMenu.1.Path)],method=Lastlimit=10,unwatched=False,resume=True,property=CustomWidget1Recommended)</onload

Script Seems not to work with Gotham!

Hello

I try jesterday evening to get this Script to work with Gotham. Sadly no Sucsess!
Does i do someting wrong, or do i have to do someting diffrent for Gotham? (it works with Frodo the way i try it for Gotham.)
i Try it with the old V.2.0.5 and a newer V.2.1.5 in the addon.xml

In "Home.xml":

The Playlists are located in the Skinfolder in a selfgenerated Folder "Playlists"
Image

If i thake a Look in the Log it shows me:

Seems as the Skript couldn't finde the Smartplaylist, but no Idea Why!!?
Try diffrent Folder Names, a Subfolder called "Video" in the "Playlists" folder and so on, no Sucsess.

So no Idea whats wrong, in Frodo it works.

Couldnt figuere it out.


(Help is much appreciated!!)


RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - mikebzh44 - 2013-11-06

Please, don't post log snippet and user xbmclogs.com to share all your log file.

As you rare running Gotham in portable mode, your xsp files must be stored in :

D:\Zwischenspeichern\XBMC Gotham _Portable_ installation\XBMC\portable_data\userdata\playlists\video

I've just make a quick test with :
XBMC 13.0-ALPHA9
Aeon Nox 4.1.9 (which is not 100% compliant with Gotham)
4 playlists

And everything is OK :

Code:

RE: [RELEASE] Random and last items smartplaylist script for Skins - butchabay - 2013-11-06

Already mentioned about pre defined skin smartplaylists, no solution so far ...read my posts a few pages back.

(2013-09-16, 21:09)butchabay Wrote: OK had to investigate and noticed something has changed from frodo to gotham.

Example for calling the script with custom playlist works as exepted, in frodo as in gotham:

PHP Code:
XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,type=Movie,unwatched=True,limit=10,resume=False,method=Last,playlist=$INFO[Skin.String(Menu_Custom4_Path)],menu=Menu1



Example for calling the script with predefined playlist, works in frodo but not in gotham:

PHP Code:
XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,type=Movie,unwatched=True,limit=10,resume=False,method=Last,playlist=special://skin/playlists/HDMovies.xsp,menu=Menu7) 


Any ideas ? Does gotham handles different special://skin stuff ?


Thanx
