HOW-TO customize the home menu with custom categories
#75
Nice tutorial for a very frequently asked question. It's rather code-y though. Can you update the opening post to mention that you can create the smart playlist within XBMC too, not just writing it from scratch?

Also, most skins allow you to add favorites to the home menu, so an alternative is to add the playlist to favorites, then add them. Easier than editing the xml by hand, and skin updates won't break it. Some skins allow adding video playlist to the menu straightaway (I know Aeon Nox does).
