New release 1.33 in the google code project (see my signature for web address).

Cheers, nice one kabooga.
one thing iv noticed so far is that the album cover dosent change when the track does. this may be down to the fact im listening to lastfm. cant try with my library yet because im in the middle of a rebuild. I'll test fully when im up and running.
cheers again and merry christmas
PS. im using M$ iexplorer 8

This app is super! I've been looking so long for something to control XBMC without having to turn on my tv!
Now, on to the problems Well... more of a question actually...
Is it supported on the xbox?
Because it works OK on my laptop, but when I use it on my xbox, this is what happens:
- It takes about 30sec to load completely
- I always get the following when loading the first time:
- Then, when I select my music-share, I get two pop-ups from IE
"Stop running this script? A script is causing IE to run slowly [some more text] Yes/No?
- Sometimes I also get 'Transaction aborted' under the control-buttons, but the song does start playing after this.
Keep up the good work!
Oh yeah, I also only get 2 genres: All and Karaoke.
And I'm not a great karaoke-fan!
Hm, the above screenshot is not accurate. Apparently, it's a different message everytime. And I get it at different times: Loading, adding to playlist, selecting a song in the playlist, ...
But in the end, it does work, and I am really thankful for it!!!

Fire69, I can confirm it works on my xbox fine. I get no errors at all. Using XBMC from T3CH, XBMC Version: 9.11-alpha1-r24238 Compiled: Nov 8 2009.
- Fire69 - 2009-12-26 10:51
I'm using an svn-build from thequestor (xbmcsvn.com).
I'll try updating and see if it fixes the problem
Is the speed workable for you?
Just installed 25561, same problems
- Fire69 - 2009-12-26 17:39
I'll try installing my xbox from scratch with a T3CH-version and see what that gives...
On the other hand, I found a problem that other might actually also have
After playing some music, when I start a video, the music album and artist are still displayed.

New version v1.35 uploaded.
1) Load Playlist function added. Button in playlist toolbar.
Note 1: This will only show playlists that were created within XBMC (due to directory location).
Note 2: Playlists created within XBMC using the library will show the songs' names as numeric names. This is an issue with XBMC. The songs are still selectable and can play, the names listed are just messed up. This bug is being tracked by the XBMC crew.
2) Doubled communications timeout. This should help Fire69 with the xbox (Hopefully).
Love that last post. I'll look into the switching between music and video. Probably need to clear some information when switching.
Also changed pic in website to show new layout.
Nice web control (with suggestions) - applecore6 - 2010-01-02 20:02
Nice job Kabooga! v1.35 seems much more snappy and the playlists work better.
A few things that would be great for a future release (or maybe I'm just missing how to do them currently):
-Turn on/off shuffle mode
-Search box (search for song title, artist, etc. and return matches)
XBMC 9.11 stable (under Karmic), but accessing the remote using Firefox 3.5 under WinXP.

It's working a lot better since the new update! Some more feature suggestions...
- Drag drop directories into the playlist
- Context menu's on files and directories
- Display modes (file mode, library mode) to make the interface a bit cleaner?

Super-duper!! Will try it as soon as I have the chance!
Aha, I thought it was me going blind, but apparently, the option isn't available yet!
Tried it on my Windows-pc, couldn't wait
Works very good and looks great too!
One feature-request I have for video:
It shows every file, not just the video-files, so you get a list with .avi/.mkv/... but also the .tbn/.nfo/...
Maybe you should filter those out?
Tried it on my xbox... same problems.
Tested with FireFox too, didn't solve it.
- Warning about slow script (only in IE, Firefox does better at that )
- Only 2 music-genres shown (All, Karaoke)
The other errors appear to be gone (due to longer time-out probably?)
Changing a song does take 10 seconds though...
I'll try it on my other xbox later on...
Other xbox, same thing! How the hell is that possible!? :confused2:
Problems running on linux - heinbloed - 2010-01-10 21:49
I have a problem browsing my media directories. XBMC is on linux (Ubuntu karmic) and I used firefox 3.5 on vista as a browser.
In xbmc.log I see that XBMC tries to access the directory (e.g. /media/musik) in "windows-style" with backslashes:
If I do access the http interface directly with
I tried with version 1.35 and 1.20, but both fail
Anybody out there runing it successful on linux ?
Any hints ?
- HappyGoLucky - 2010-01-12 00:02
@Fire69: I'll try with my xbox within the next couple days to see if I can replicate your issues.
What I would suggest is sending the commands directly to your xbox via a URL in your browser and see what happens. At least this will eliminate the app itself. You can try sending messages to control your music, and even another message to pop up a general message on the screen. Any results would be useful to see if there is any lag, or errors, or nothing happening, etc.
Hope that helps!

Got some examples I can send? Don't know much about the XBMC HTTP API
I have to say - now that you talk about lag - the default web-interface included with XBMC is also extremely slow...
But when I use Avalaunch and Qwix for example to copy something over, I get normal 100mbit-speeds, so I'm guessing it's not my network...
Found a little bug
When you click the volume slider, instead of sliding it, the volume doesn't change.
- Kabooga - 2010-01-12 21:11
Here's an example
[IPAddress:Port] is your IP address and Port being used.
If you want other commands to try then look at http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=WebServerHTTP-API
Thanks for the feedback Fire69 I will check the volume slider.
PS: In the next few days I will be releasing a version with a little different interface. It would have the same functionality but the tabs would be a little different. Depending on feedback we could keep the new or stay with the original.

I'll give that a try.
Meanwhile, I have another request.
Would it be possible to draw cue-files to the playlist?
If you drag the file now, it's added, but it doesn't work
