Remove or Skip Chapters in Bookmark List
#1
I would like to be able to access the bookmarks I created and move from one to another without Chapters in the list of bookmarks.  I can hide the Chapters using:

<visible>!String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)</visible>

but that keeps the Chapters in the bookmark list and does not allow for navigating directly between the created bookmarks.  Is there a way to eliminate Chapters from the bookmark list created in VideoOSDBookmarks or alternately do not create Chapter bookmarks at all?

There is a solution using if else statements in python scripts.

if xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)"):
     xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Right)")
     time.sleep(0.01)
else:
     break

I can directly jump to a bookmarked location (excluding chapters) with a script. Number one jumps to the first bookmarked location. One long press jumps to the eleventh bookmark. Knowing how to compare the ListItem.Label2 (time) to the Player.Time would provide a way to jump to the next bookmark after the current Player.Time. Does anyone know how to make this work?

Some details:
- This should work for any skin with bookmarks in a single horizontal row. I tested it with AeonNoxSilvo.
- <onright> and <onleft> need to be disabled in VideoOSDBookmarks.xml.
- The code below is the script to jump to the second bookmark. The first loop is to return the focused item to the beginning of the list. Perhaps there is a single action to do that?
- The next two loops find the first and second bookmarks (not counting chapters). Nested loops with IF statements were problematic.
- The last loop is for cases where I am seeking beyond the end of the bookmarks and the last list item is a chapter. This loop will go back to the last bookmark that is not a chapter.

import xbmc
import time

xbmc.executebuiltin("ActivateWindow(VideoBookmarks)")

for x in range(50):
     xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Left)")


for x in range(25):
     if xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)"):
          xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Right)")
          time.sleep(0.01)
     else:
           break

xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Right)")
time.sleep(0.01)

for x in range(25):
     if xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)"):
          xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Right)")
          time.sleep(0.01)
     else:
          break


time.sleep(0.1)

for x in range(25):
     if xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)"):
          xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Left)")
          time.sleep(0.01)
     else:
          break

xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Select)")
xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Close)")

One more detail:  Using the above script will create a bookmark if there are no bookmarks.  To prevent that, add the following lines after xbmc.executebuiltin("ActivateWindow(VideoBookmarks)")

xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Right)")
time.sleep(0.01)

if xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Chapter)") | xbmc.getCondVisibility("String.StartsWith(ListItem.Label,Bookmark)"):
       xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(noop)")
else:  
       xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(close)")

Hi! 

I've been looking for a replacement for this add-on for years but since json-rpc no one has succeeded... 
[RELEASE] Video bookmarks browser

I see you are making progress with bookmark's for the first time
thanks and I am very happy for that!

even if bookmarks could not be put on the main screen as widgets 
do you think it could be separated somewhere?
like a context menu or something like that, the point is that it should not only be visible when the video is already started
