Hi roeroe.

Thanks so much.

The next update for Helix and Isengard is going to be pretty big with support for script.extendedinfo (actor information, in cinemas etc.). Smile

Hey Gade. Got a question about VideoExtras. I was reading through the VideoExtras thread and it seemed like this might be an implementation question for the skinner.

It has been working great for movies, so I thought I would try it with tv shows. I created the "Extras" folder at the top show level in a few series and then I have the "Extras" folder at the season level in a couple of series.

VideoExtras itself seems to be working fine and displays the "Extras" buttons as designed. ((VideoExtras tv show structure))

My question is about this setup:

Show AAA
-----Extras
-----Season 1
-----Season 2

If the only way to get to the extras in this case is to hit option-C and then choose "TV Show Information", how is one supposed to know to do that for each show without some sort of indicator that they are there? Would it be possible to show some sort of indicator for the shows/seasons with extras? Like maybe change the show/season text color or something like that or maybe an icon somewhere?

I've been reading through the VideoExtras thread and it seems like it might be possible in some form. I saw this as an answer to a similar question.

"I believe that's common to every skin that you will only see the "Extras" button in the info window. Some skins do support a flag to show that extras are available, but AN5 is not one of them. Might be available in some of the mods though. "

Do you know what he is talking about? Is that something that might be doable in Rapier or is it just too much work to add it in to the current version?

Hi Thales.

Great that you got VideoExtras working.

I don't use it myself, but Rapier fully supports it.

You are right about the missing indication. The extras flag in the library views is very much something I have planned, but it will probably not be for the next update.

By the way, for the information window, you only need to press "I". Wink

Great to hear you already had it planned. I was afraid I might have been asking too much for something not many people may use. Up until now, I've been adding tv show extras as specials. It was a big pain though since I had to manually create nfo files for everything not listed at TVDB. Now I can just dump everything in the Extras folder and forget about it.

Just want to say again that you are doing a great job of adding in all these little features and new add-ons without adding a lot of bloat and changing the look and feel of Rapier. I peek in on Nox every so often and just cringe at how much "stuff" is crammed in all over the place for no apparent reason. (Granted, a lot of it are user mods, but still...) Everything looks just so nice and clean in Rapier in comparison.

And of course the Rapier support can't be beat! So thanks for all the work. The upcoming updates sound great.

Hi guys.

I have added support for script.extendedinfo including actor / artist / writer / director / movie / tv show / season information etc.

I could really use all possible help testing this out, as it is a pretty big update.

Install my repository to automatically get the update of Rapier.

Thanks!

Cheers

I finally had a chance to try it out today. It is quite the update! The extended actor info looks SO nice and I really like how it is organized into different sections. Going to be useful to have all that available right after a movie.

Haven't had a chance to try out the other new features yet. Ran into a little issue before that. Something seems to be wrong with the Play Random Movie script. I click on it, Kodi invokes MPC-HC, and then MPC-HC gives the error "Failed to render file." There is no trouble playing specific movies in MPC-HC.

Here is a partial log.

20:23:21 T:5668 ERROR: Error loading Smart playlist special://skin/extras/widgetplaylists/inprogressmovies.xsp (failed to read file)
20:23:21 T:5668 ERROR: Previous line repeats 1 times.

20:23:21 T:5668 ERROR: XFILE::CDirectory::GetDirectory - Error getting special://skin/extras/widgetplaylists/unwatchedmovies.xsp

Maybe there is a file missing somewhere?

Thought I would mention it here since it was working in all the previous versions of Rapier and maybe it had something to do with this big new update. I'll ask about it in the scripts thread if you don't think it is a skin issue.

Hi Thales.

Thanks a lot for the feedback and great that you like the update and new features. If you have any suggestions how to improve ExtendedInfo support, please let me know. There are endless possibilities Smile

I have no errors at all with that script.

How do you use the playlists from your log above?

The playlists are in a folder within the Rapier skin called "extras/widgetplaylists/". I have never used such a folder within the extras folder, so it must have been something you have added yourself? Whenever the skin updates, it overwrites any changes made and deletes folders like that. If you use any custom smart playlists, I suggest you place them outside of the skin folder.

I actually have smart playlists doing the same added within the extras/playlists/ folder. They can be selected in the skin settings using the presets dialog when adding custom categories or submenus.

Ok, you figured it out. Of course it was my mistake. I wasn't doing anything fancy with custom scripts or anything like that.

I copied some custom menu name artwork to the "extras" folder and then moved all the other artwork files to a new folder to make the selection widow easier to scroll through. I had just blindly grabbed the "playlist" folder with everything else and put it in the new folder. I didn't even think about that until you mentioned the extras/playlists/ folder. I just moved the "playlist" folder back to the top level in "extras" and of course it worked. So thanks for that.

Had a little more time to look around at the other new features. I really like the new "Movies" tab in the Movie Set information screen. I have a lot of the older movie series with many movies in them and that screen is a nice looking way to scroll through them.

The YouTube search in the actor info section is so neat. I had no idea that was possible. And speaking of YouTube, I saw Rob is trying to add YouTube support to VideoExtras. He is working on a way to actually download movie extras from YouTube to the movie folder. That's pretty amazing if he can pull it off.

Love the addition of "Clean Library" as a preset. I use that a lot. Going to be handy to have it in a sub-menu.

And one last question. I saw the "Enter Custom Action" preset. Is that from a script or a built in Kodi feature? I'm having a hard searching for information on how to use it. I would like to see if I could use it to add a "Stop Scanning" button to a sub-menu.

I have seen that as well. If he makes it work and it is accepted in the repo, it is going to be a great improvement to the VideoExtras script. And it will make it very easy to create your own extras.

The "Enter custom action" button is used if the user wants to add an action which does not appear in the presets dialog (eg. ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://movies/genres/) will take you to the root of the genres folder from the home screen at all times). Most actions should be added by now though.

http://kodi.wiki/view/List_of_built-in_functions

To my knowledge, there's no action to stop library scanning.
