Python: Get current active addon name
#1
Hi,
is it somehow possible to get the name of the currently running addon
while something is playing (video or audio)?

not sure what you refer to but if you mean the plugin that provided the item, it's not running at that point. plugins are virtual filesystem - it lists the directory and then it exits..

Aah okay, understand.
And in general, how to get the addons name while browsing in it? I know it is possible by the addon id, but that i don't know because it changes with every addon.

Container.PluginName should work (never tested it though, so no guarantees)

Sorry for the late response!
You put me in the right direction:
Code:
AddonName = xbmc.getInfoLabel('Container.PluginName')
AddonName = xbmcaddon.Addon(AddonName).getAddonInfo('name')

Hello,

I'd like to modify the source code to custom my own version.
And I ask the equivalent question in c++ : how can I access to the name of the current active addon ?
Do I have to search here ?

Thanks !

UPDATE

I created a new topic here.
