Play an Album from Album Info screen
#1
In the same way you can play a Movie from the Movie Info screen I want to be able to play an Album from the Album Info screen but nothing I try works.

Surely this should do it?

PHP Code:
<onclick>PlayMedia($INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath])</onclick

Even adding ,isdir doesn't work.

Anyone know the answer?

Thanks.

Yes, everything I try throws this error -

ERROR: CDVDPlayer::OpenInputStream - error opening [G:\NZB\Download\Nirvana - Nevermind\]

Code:
Container.FolderPath - musicdb://3/

ListItem.FileNameAndPath - smb://HAL_NAS/Volume_1/Music/The Chemical Brothers - Further/

ListItem.Path - smb://HAL_NAS/Volume_1/Music/

good practice, put quotes around the path:
Quote:<onclick>PlayMedia(&quot;$INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath]&quot; )</onclick>

no clue if it'll fix your issue, but it wouldn't hurt either.

Hm, from a brief look PlayMedia is pretty much build for video content. Mind creating a ticket so we do not forget about it?

Thought I'd try using that for videos and Ronie is indeed right the &quot; tags are needed but trying to play an album always throws error 123 when trying to open the file.

I suppose I could use a script to make a playlist like the RecentlyAdded script used.

@Hitcher: Currently there is no other way - unfortunately PlayMedia(directory) will only find video files in given directory.

Plans for future: Part of my work on playlists will be unifying playback starting and this should take care of this inconvenience.

didn't have time to look into it, until today.

here's what i came up with:
script.playalbum-0.0.1.zip


add this to a button in DialogAlbumInfo.xml:
Quote:<onclick>RunScript(script.playalbum,artist=$INFO[ListItem.Artist]&amp;album=$INFO[ListItem.Album])</onclick>

lemme know if you encounter any issues :-)


edit:
xbmc pre-eden only!
