just wanted to autostart a shoutcaststream, but this won't work at the moment. don't know if it's a bug or not supported.

how do you autostart it?
the last should work, the first shouldn't.

nice, will try it later.
forget everything. it's almost working. the problem is something with the xfs i have to check later...
btw, as you are the python guru... :-)
could you give me an example how to make directories and remove them. can i access the f: drive through python?
i wrote a shoutcast-pls-updater this afternoon, but can't get it to work on the xbox. works nice on winxp, but thats not what i want! :-)
i'm new to python, here the relevant functions:
shoutcast_dir = 'f:/music/radio/'
#got this one from somewhere here in the forum, but doesn't work on the box:
for root, dirs, files in os.walk(dirname):
for name in files:
#creates missing directories for the given path
dpath = normpath(dirname(path))
if not exists(dpath): makedirs(dpath)
# saves the content under the given path. (i.e. dir=f:/music/shoutcast/ filename=blabla.pls)
def save_file(dir, filename, content):
file = open(dir + filename, 'w')
thanx a lot

just a quick look
'/' is not supported in python for xbmc
use '\\' instead
shoutcast_dir = 'f:\\music\\radio'

since this turns into python scripting i move it to the "development" forum.
- NEI - 2004-01-07 22:13
k, i tried:
file = 'http://www.shoutcast.com/sbin/shoutcast-playlist.pls?rn=7711&file=filename.pls'
but its not working! :-(

xbmc.mediaplay('http://addicted.puredj.com:8000') should work. i'll test it soon to see if it really does :-)
it does work, only http should be replaced by shout

oh cool! finally i can autostart my preffered shoutcast station without having to turn on my projector! :-)
btw, the python stuff is great! i'm even thinking about doing a script wich would let you browse online the shoutcast stations and playing them. something like a "my radio" button in the root menu. but unfortunatly i don't have much time and not a lot of python experience.

(febs @ jan. 08 2004,09:23 Wrote:so you can use xbmc as a dashboard?i think yes, if you copy all files to c-drive like other dashboards. remeber seeing that in some thread here earlier. and ofcourse edit default.xbe or your bios to the name you use to boot.

(febs @ jan. 08 2004,09:23 Wrote:so you can use xbmc as a dashboard?yes you can. if you know how to change your bios with xbtool you can change it to point to your xbmc folder eg. f:/apps/xbmc/default.xbe.
or you can copy the whole xbmc folder to your c drive and rename default.xbe to the name your bios is looking for,

or there is even another possibility:
i don't use any of them, but have xbmc as first entry in evox. so start box, press a and autostart whatever you want through python. :-) don't need a tv for this! ;-)
- febs - 2004-01-11 03:53
her, thanx for infos about autorunning xbmc at startup.
too bad with this script
i get this error:
Quote:view as listit does not start (and the audio playing meanwhile skips by one )
btw, the dns settings are correct.
- NEI - 2004-01-16 10:40
try with another address. it's working. i use it all the time. ;-)
