script favourites - new features - `Black - 2011-11-15 12:55
I added a new feature to the favourites script so that it's now very easy to set a favourite as a string for use as a custom home item or something else.
If you run the script like this
it will open a select dialog and if you choose a favourite, the script will set the following strings based on the provided property:
I hope this will make things a lot easier for you.
script-favourites is available on ronie's svn
and from the official repo.

Can an option be added for playlist=play in a select dialog? We now run it per custom favorite, would be nice for users to choose thus instead of us.

If you're taking suggestions can an album be set to play as well?

If the selected favourite is a playlist, yes/no dialog pops up where you can choose.
I'll add that.

I took a look into it and I think it's not possible because there are several edge cases where you don't know if it's an album or not.
Edit: Only thing I could do is to ask for play every time if it's music. But there will be an error if you try to play an artist or year favourite.

So it will remain as skinner definable feature?

No worries, thanks for looking.
