Did you have the same issue with playlists stored in special://profile/playlists/video/ ?

Can you send me your email by MP, I cannot post attachments Sad

Or can you simply edit randomandlastitems.py and add the line in bold :

Code:
if PLAYLIST == "":
        PLAYLIST = "videodb://1/2/"
    json_query = xbmc.executeJSONRPC('{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Files.GetDirectory", "params": {"directory": "%s", "media": "video", "properties": ["year", "runtime", "file", "playcount", "rating", "plot", "fanart", "thumbnail", "resume", "trailer"]}, "id": 1}' %(PLAYLIST))
    json_query = unicode(json_query, 'utf-8', errors='ignore')
    json_pl_response = simplejson.loads(json_query)
    [b]print("JSON_PL_RESPONSE=",json_pl_response)[/b]

and give me the log file.

Thanks.

Could you test with this calling (without ' before and after each parameter value):

Code:
<onload>XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,limit=3,method=Last,playlist=special://skin/playlists/HDMovies.xsp,menu=Menu1)</onload>

On my PC, I've got the same error as you if I put '

Maybe I have to handle this case and remove it when parsing parameters.

For the ', I will try to manage it in the script.

For your GUI windows, send it me by email (send by PM)

http://pastebin.com/uJiwQW1B
Iam on windows 7x64, Eden 3b, tried in Glass & Aeon Nox
Would appreciate any help

Hello.

I think that you shouldn't put PlayMedia when setting playlist=

Right way is :

playlist=special://profile/playlists/videos/Bollywood Hollywood.xsp

No Internet is hard, but since when does forum.xbmc.org support tapatalk?
That's why I laughed...

Thought you were joking...

You're all right Wink

No tapatalk for forum.xbmc.org Sad

mikebzh44, could you please elaborate on the setting playlist part , i looked and found the playmedia reference and deleted it but It did not do anything, the playlists are working properly otherwise and I am not sure why this isnt working for me.. could yourself or anyone else please guide me how to.. will be much appreciated .. Thanks


- mikebzh44 - 2012-02-19

Shaktoo, are you a skinner and do you want to add my script to your skin ?

Or are you only a XBMC user ?

If you are a skinner, you should call my script this way :

XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,playlist=special://profile/playlists/video/Bollywood Hollywood.xsp,method=Last,menu=Menu1)

And use the properties returned :

PlaylistLastMovieMenu1.Count
PlaylistLastMovieMenu1.1.Title
PlaylistLastMovieMenu1.2.Title

as describe in the README.txt

If you are only a user, you have to use a skin that can handle my script. The only one I know is Glass but you have to install version 112 or higher.

Add skin 'Aeon Nox' to the list SVN/Git version.
