container loading time
#1
Hello

My custom skin has the ability to play trailer movies in my view mode. It's working well, but it will take some time to load the container (4-5 seconds).I want to be there in 1-2 seconds 
So, I want to get my code reviewed by you guys.

This is my view mode

<control type="list" id="903">
     <preloaditems>3</preloaditems>
     <itemlayout height="240" width="180">
        .....
     </itemlayout>
     <focusedlayout height="240" width="180">
     <control type="button">
          <description>hidden button to enable youtube container.</description>
          <visible allowhiddenfocus="true">false</visible>
          <onfocus>SetProperty(videoyoutube,1)</onfocus> : It is hidden button for enable youtube container.
     </control>
</focusedlayout>

<control type="panel" id="906">
    <visible>Skin.HasSetting(movie_trailerflag)</visible> : It is flag for movie trailer button
    <onload>ClearProperty(ContentVideoYoutube,Home)</onload> :It is just for refresh when I select movie item
    <itemlayout height="260" width="160">
      ....
    </itemlayout>
    <focusedlayout height="260" width="160">
      ....    
    </focusedlayout>
       <content limit="1" sortby="file" sortorder="" target="videos">$VAR[ContentVideoYoutube]</content> : to minimize search result, I set limit="1"
</control>
Variable

<variable name="ContentVideoYoutube">
        <value condition="String.IsEqual(Window.Property(videoyoutube),1) + Skin.HasSetting(movie_trailerflag) + Container.Content(movies)">plugin://plugin.video.youtube/kodion/search/query/?q=$INFO[ListItem.Label]</value>
</variable>
Loading Widget for trailer, This loading widget is showing when Container(906).IsUpdating. It will take 4-5 sec

 <control type="multiimage">
               ..
                <imagepath>special://skin/spinner/search_widget_loader</imagepath>
                <timeperimage>250</timeperimage>
                <pauseatend>500</pauseatend>
                <colordiffuse>white</colordiffuse>
                <fadetime>0</fadetime>
                <visible>Container(906).IsUpdating </visible>
               ..
</control>
Trailer button has activated when it has focused, When this button has focused , it plays trailer video. It plays very quickly (less than 1-2 sec).

<control type="button" id="9031">
     <texturenofocus>special://skin/media/home/trailer.png</texturenofocus>
     <texturefocus colordiffuse="$VAR[BackColorButton]">special://skin/media/home/trailer.png</texturefocus>
     <onfocus condition="!IsEmpty(ListItem.trailer)">AlarmClock(preview_delay,PlayMedia($ESCINFO[Container(906).ListItem.FileNameAndPath],1),00:00,silent)</onfocus>
     <onunfocus condition="System.HasAlarm(preview_delay)">CancelAlarm(preview_delay,silent)</onunfocus>
     <onunfocus condition="Control.HasFocus(9031)">stop</onunfocus>
     <visible>!Container(906).IsUpdating + Skin.HasSetting(movie_trailerflag)</visible>
</control>
My only one problem is
Container(906).IsUpdating took some times, it normally 4-5 sec or more. Can I reduce time to my container loading time more?
