Random Trailer Screensaver
#31
@Kzeleny: I love this.

the only thing i'd like to see is an automated mute option so I have moving picture as a screensaver without the sound.
and to end the thing on keypress or mousemotion.

If you get this to work you will be my hero.

BTW screensaver doesn't crash on my setup so I'm very happy with it.

Thanks for the feedback.

I added an option to mute trailers during playback, it also now exits on keypress or mouse move. I also fixed a bug where the trailers would start playing if you were playing some other kind of media.

Amazing! One feature request. I am using this on my mac mini htpc and use the apple remote to control xbmc. Can you add the Menu button press as a command to exit the service. Currently, the only way I can get out is to press Play to start the movie for the current trailer, and then Menu to back out of the movie.

Also, just fyi, the instructions for the key shortcuts, and the trailer title, are overlapping in the upper left corner during the trailer playback. This is a minor visual issue though.

Thanks for this!!!

Is there a previous or back button that should exit. I am working on a new version that will allow to hide recently watched movies and more. there is a Random trailers program addon that is available now that has the updates

Unfortunately the Menu, and Up, Down, Left and Right Direction Arrows don't work in either the Random Trailer Screensaver or Program. The Play/Pause and Select buttons both exit the addon and start the movie, but thats the only way out. Thanks for the updates!

I haven't read this whole thread, but I briefly looked at your code and wondered why you run as a service?

the following test addon.xml and addon.py work fine as a screensaver, though i'm on current git. (nightlies)

After reading, I think i understand, you want control over the trailers, you don't want it to act exactly like a screensaver.

Your right I wanted it to act like a screen saver but not deactivate on mouse move or key press. I tried to implement as a screensaver originally but could not get it to allow the control I wanted. But I think I could modify it to just use the screensaver activate function to start it up, but ignore the deactivate events to allow user control of trailers, ie muting or getting movie info, playing movie etc.

I added arrow keys to the program addon. UP=show movie info, DOWN=hide movie info, RIGHT=next trailer, LEFT=exit

Pushed it to repo should be available in the next day or so. Look for version 1.0.6

I just played around again and the only way to deactivate the video was to stop it. mouse moves and key presses (other than x) did not deactivate it.

Yes that's how it was designed to work, it is to allow the user to interact with the trailer, they can press esc at any time to quit. If you want till the last trailer plays the screen will go black, and then it reacts like a standard screensaver and will deactivate upon mouse move or key press.

i was referring to the code i posted, i think it works the way you want. no need for your own window or making it a service. just make it a screensaver and play the trailers.

maybe something changed in XBMC.

the one improvement in XBMC would be if you could have it loop.

It would be nice to have it as standard screensaver instead of service, hopefully Nuka1195s code will help.

i think just making it a screensaver

PHP Code:
<extension point="xbmc.ui.screensaver" library="addon.py"/> 

leaving everything else the same would be enough.
