[Solved] Aeon Nox not seeing smart video playlists - .:B:. - 2012-05-06 03:34

I have put together a smart playlist that I can access normally through the files/playlists overview. The playlist is populated so it works fine. However, when I try to activate one of the playlist items in the home menu, it pops up a dialog that looks like it should be containing available playlists, except that it's empty (besides an entry saying: "None" and that clicking it will reset the whole thing).

I thought it might be an issue with spaces in the file name, so i tried to rename the .xsp file that is in ~/.xbmc/playlists/video to something without spaces, but even after a reboot it's not found.

Is this broken functionality or am I trying to add a smart playlist to my home screen in the wrong way?

Bump.

I can link a smart playlist to a button just fine in remote.xml, so it's not that I'm afraid of getting my hands dirty. Anyone?

You might have more luck if you put this in the Aeon Nox forum

maybe its a fault with the playlist script. You can always assign the playlist to your favorites and add that to the main menu.

I had quite the same problem on a friend's PC.
I manage to create smart playlist but when trying to make a shortcut on the main menu (Aeon Nox 2.0) I got a message telling "failure! script.playlist" or something like that.
I tried to reboot the PC, and got the same result.
I didn't understand as I managed to do the very same operation the day before.

How can I fix the playlist script ?

Thanks

Thanks. I added the playlist to my favourites, and the favourites are in my main menu. Is there somewhere I can find out what the issue is? When I go through the whole process I don't get any error messages. Spaces in the name of the playlist do not seem to play a role, it's not seen whether it has spaces or not in the name.

Anyone?

you didnĀ“t even try a clean installation, did you?


RE: Aeon Nox not seeing smart video playlists - .:B:. - 2012-05-12 18:48

Of my whole setup you mean, or of just aeon nox?

Whole setup.
If no one else is having this it must be your installation

Well I guess I'll weigh the pro's and cons then. It took a while setting this up, I'd rather try to fix it than start from a clean slate again.

I appreciate everyone's input, but a reinstall is pretty much a Windows solution Wink.

Edit: Xbmc's log said it was looking for the favourites script, but that was not installed. Once I grabbed that the favourites showed up just fine Smile.

Hi,

could you pls briefly explain what script was missing and how did you manage to get it?

Thanks!

Ah, thanks indeed!

It seems my issue (cannot assign a smart playlist to a Video/VP1 submenu) has a diffierent cause. I use the built-in path substitution feature for the Playlist folder but this is not recognized in the skin.

After copying the playlist to the actual harddisk it works as expected.
