I hope it is possible to change your script in order to make a sort of film using a playlist?

Hi, you could add it to the Movie sub-menu on the home screen by editing the IncludesHomeMenuItems.xml located in the 720p folder. Search for the section named <include name="HomeSubMenuMovies"> and add a new button there..
Here is a example..

I'm not sure I understand what you want to do. Can you explain a bit more?

FYI I will be working on some new features to include in the script: e.g. playing x random trailers and then user being able to select which film to watch, adding random music option (e.g. by genre), etc.
(I take no credit for the ideas, they came from PatrickBateman in the Cirrus forum).
I also need to update for the latest changes to JSON-RPC so that the script will be Eden ready.
I am unlikely to do any further work to the Dharma version of the script.

I would be able to view the film at random contained in a video playlist

Ok, I understand.
This is on my list of things I'd like to do, however I don't think this is possible at the moment.
I need to look at the JSON RPC methods and double check what's available for playlists.

I hope you get there, because it really is something missing in xbmc

Yes! I can get this to work.
Will add to next version of the script.

You have nice ideas
One improvement could be that you can make it work with TV Series. For example you can play a random episode, or play a random episode of a given genre (Comedy/Cartoon...etc), or even play a random episode of a given TV Series.
Other than that this script seems great, and I will try to integrate it under the Movie submenu.

This is already integrated into Cirrus Extended v2 so take a look at that skin to see how it's done (and look at post #1)
