Sorry to be a pain but I'm still having a problem with the script.
When I try to run it with any film in my library, it will play the random trailers, plays the Dolby video and then stops before playing the main film.
The films will play normally when I select them through XBMC so it just seems the script is stopping before it gets to the film.
My log is here: http://pastebin.com/m30a0bdb8
The trailers would only start working once I deselected the option for only playing trailers with the same genre and rating.
Any suggestions on what I could do to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help :o

Sometimes renaming the .vob to .avi will work. Example DTS.VOB TO DTS.AVI
AVCHD 7.1 Not sure but possibly Sony Vegas may work...

kurnalburt the movie isn't being queued by the looks of the log. try running in another skin. transperency supports this.
it looks like your playing the movie before running the script. so might be a skin issue.
mccorkled why do you need to convert to avi?

I've been playing around with the script and it's true Nuka goodness as usual.
One thing I'm really wondering is: The script has what appears to be some predetermined settings that can be configured, but I'm wondering if I can create my own set of parameters; essentially configure the script to run through several items of my choosing in the order I prefer all using a modded xml file, similar to the way we can override the movie scrapers by using local nfo files?
I'd like to do something like this, with all my own choices and let it run through without any time limits (ex: 10 minutes for trivia slides - I'd like to just play a couple and let it move on to the next item in queue):
browse movie list
play trailer if necessary (to determine which movie to watch)
begin elevator music and slides
funny turn off your cellphone short video
now for our feature presentation short video
hd dolby sound short video
Thanks Nuka, you rock man!

"mccorkled why do you need to convert to avi? "
because .vob is like 30 megs. .avi is 10.
What Shuey suggested sounds good but it would suck to change the script now. It would be convenient to have like #1-15 and each one has the option of being a slide show, or random videos. That way you can place things in the order you want them more specifically. I dont know much about coding python though.
- Nuka1195 - 2010-01-08 06:20
damn, i have a lot of time in the settings, but that doesn't sound bad. 15 sound like a lot especially if the choice is 5 random videos. that covers a lot.
the thing is you can't mix and match slides and videos. unless the script continues to run. which i don't really want.
hmm, i'll think about it. it would be a lot more flexible.
- mccorkled - 2010-01-08 06:32
Yeah 15 was a high number. Maybe make trivia slides be the very first thing that can either be on or off. Then the rest of the options can be set from 1 video to 5 or so random videos. Maybe even make it so we can type in a short description, ie "ratings" or "old style clips"
just some ideas.
- Nuka1195 - 2010-01-08 07:38
i don't know if this is going to be possible, so unless you have a good idea on how to code this no +1 or anything. the settings themselves will be a nightmare. then mixing trivia slideshow anywhere(which i want a trivia intro). then not having the ability to limit the choices. so you could have more than one feature presentation video.
but i still like the idea. and 15 may not be too many. i used all 10 as i thought i would want it.
- mccorkled - 2010-01-08 07:42
hell yeah man. that looks awesome. EXACTLY like I was picturing it. This way it will be 100% customizable. Wish I could be a part of the coding. heh.
- timdog82001 - 2010-01-08 07:49
As another option if you were to try to expand flexibility in this way (maybe it would avoid redoing a lot of code, i dunno, but trying to help) maybe you could leave the settings more or less as is, but have a file like playforder.xml or something, which could have something along the lines of
...etc, you get the idea. The numbers represent their order in the queue. You could maybe mention that trivia slides can't be higher than number 3 or so. Or, just leave the trivia slides and trivia intro out of the order list and make them first no matter what. Just an idea, I don't know if it helps. I suppose that alternatively you could just have another setting in the GUI that does the same thing. A list of 10 or whatever number of slots and for each one you choose the video type (trailer, feature intro, theater intro, etc) you want to play in that slot.
EDIT: err, nevermind. Apparently you had the same idea. You uploaded that pic while i was typing this.
