[RELEASE] AutoWidget - Let your widgets work for you!

Previous versions only allowed you to add paths with no DbType set (so folders and such, that aren't actual media). I found that this made some paths not be usable, as they declare their content as "video" (the one that I found it was in TMDbHelper, which declares people as "video" Rofl), even when it isn't necessarily an actual video file. For this reason, I've relaxed the requirement, and now it will allow any path that isn't a "movie" or "episode". This means you can point directly into shows, seasons and such, but I don't expect it to work for any playable files. It's possible I can add that functionality at some point, but I don't feel like it's necessarily needed. If you need to create an AutoWidget that contains specific media files, my recommendation is to add those to a Smart Playlist, a Trakt list, or a library node, and point your widget at that. It will allow the best compatibility with playable files, including available metadata and artwork, which won't get "cloned" in its entirety just by adding to AutoWidget.

This update also addresses an issue where the "given" artwork for a path was on a remote host, and you weren't able to "escape" the host in the file browser. Now, if that art is stored at a web address, it'll kick you back to the root of the browser. If you want to use remotely stored art for your paths, i would recommend adding your host as a file source, and then browsing to the images through that source. Also regarding artwork is that special paths will now be automatically used for artwork. This won't retroactively convert old paths, but any new paths or artwork that gets set will be converted to a special path, where applicable.

Other fixes include a bug where some skins didn't allow you to set "Settings" shortcuts, and using smart playlists as paths (@Rijs43 Wink)


I have tried the new update and autowidget is showing now up in Embuary, however the title of the smart list does not match with the content shown by Autowidget. For example I have a smart play list Comedy, autowidget is showing for example Thriller movies in Comedy smart playlist. The smart playlist is set up correct because when I enter this playlist manually everything is showing correct.

Seems like there is a bug in Autowidget with showing the correct content.
