album art seem to be glitchy for me using the latest version of XBMControl and the latest SVN build of XBMC for the xbox. im using M$ iexplorer 8
sometimes I just get a little red cross instead of the album art displayed. and some times it works fine.
this maybe a xbmc specific bug and not related to your webui

First off, great, clean looking interface. I definitely like it!
I have a request, if at all possible.
I have tried myself, but failed, modifying other web interfaces, so I am hoping for some pity and help from someone like yourself.
I would like to see the web interface support the httpapi FileDownload feature if at all possible.
When browsing the web interface, I would like to have another option in addition to adding to the queue and playback that allows a user to download the selected file to their computer in its original form.
I don't know if it is possible if the file doesn't exist on the XBMC itself. The example in the API shows a local file but doesn't mention any limitations.
My XBMC doesn't store files, they are on SMB shares so if the API doesn't support it, then I guess the answer is simple.
Anyway... again, great work and I hope you can consider this as a new possible feature.

Hello i love the project. i have been looking and testing other software just like it and this one is the best. Its a shame there is not a dedicated software for jukebox style interface. I have a HTPC that is hooked up to a projector and do not alway want to turn it on just to play music. All of my music is on my HTPC and it is hooked up to the stereo so this allows me to play music with out turning on the PJ. Thanks
One problem is that when the playlist window fills up and has a scroll option it will not allow anymore files to be added. the cursor gets stuck with the green plus and i cant seem to add anymore music. if i clear the playlist i can then add more but as soon as it reaches the bottom and the scroll bars come on it wont let me add anymore.
I am using 9.11 and 1.36. and firefox (whats Internet explorer?, i thought that died like 15 years ago? people still use it? so unsafe. like going to the red light district with out a condom. or racing the LeMans with a ford torus. virus-galore) let me know what you think or if you need logs ect.
just tested it in firefox under an IE tab and it seems to work better. just a little lag then it adds the files.

Thanks for the input. Looks like some test code I put in is getting in the way. I'll have it fixed in the next release.
Note: If you drag your selection near the top of the playlist window and release it should work.
I'm sorry but I've tried some file transfer functionality for playlists and it was a major pain in the rear.

Download from XBMC to user pc? What kind of pains? I might be able to help out here... let me know if you're interested

Just wanted to give you guys a bit of notice incase you haven't seen yet.
The interface looks quite nice, much nicer than what we've currently got with xbmc. That being said, the current GoAhead server is being ripped out due to licensing issues. Our hands are tied here, we have no choice. This will likely be done in the next few days. Unfortunately the new server does not handle asp/php, so all current web interfaces will no longer work.
The good news is that it's being replaced buy a much more powerful and flexible alternative, jsonrpc. See here for more info.
We hope that the current efforts will move to the new interface, there's lots of talent here.

The framework I'm using (extjs) has json handlers. Hopefully this will ease the transition.
Thanks for the heads up.

Any progress on migrating the code?
- Kabooga - 2010-04-05 19:24
I've finally had some time to actually try some interface face calls using the JSON rpc. The good news is the changes to the app to enable JSON RPC calls are relatively small. So the mechanics of issuing requests and receiving/sending data is not an problem.
The two biggest issues I see are:
1) The new API interface does not have all the functionality of the old API. This is starting to be addressed, but will take time. Also some of the functionality I depended on may not be incorporated in the new API. There will most likely have to be some compromises made to the app.
2) Time. I'm at a new job and I am one of the senior developers. The times I have open to mess around with the app is much less than before.

Nice to hear Kabooga. i really mis this UI since upgrade my XBMC build. think im going to go back to one that supports it (Do you know the last XBMC build to support it?).
thanks agin for all the work on this awsome webui. its been the best part of my xbmc setup for some time. I look forward to the new version.
