OK, I update my XBMC built, used REPO Installer and got the latest version of the script. Then got Transparency! 2.0 skin. This is supposed to support this plugin, but only got a dimmed "Play Trailer" button in info screen of the Video Library.
I got it to work as follows:
Edit DialogVideoInfo.xml (found under ..Application Data\XBMC skin\Transparency!\720p\ folder). I found two sections that to the best of my understanding, were meant to be mutually exclusive:
So which of the 2 button 11 is displayed is decided from the "Skin.HasSetting(hometheater)" value. I figured "!" means no, so I just swapped the "!" (meaning deleted it from upper part and added to the lower part. Now I have a "Theater" button active that launches the script just fine.
My questions are:
1. Why is not Skin.HasSetting(hometheater) true? (So that I wouldn't have to mess with the xml)
2. What if I want only a couple of trivia slides? 15 minutes is a very long time to watch slides before your movie. How can I change the minimum value to 40 secs e.g.?
3. Post #1 mentions about a "slides.xml" file to define the q&a files. Where is it? Couldn't find it anywhere.
4. My Apple Movie Trailers does not work. Not just with this plugin, but in general. Am I the only one or is there something wrong with Apple?
Thnx for the great work!

I do not really understand what you're trying to do here...
Transparency! works ok (yes the info solution is the only way) when I:
- use plugin to start slideshow from local folder
- use plugin to play video from local trailer folder (defined in settings)
I cannot get it to work with Apple MT, even though AMT works ok on its own (after entering coding patch, found in relevant thread)
I hope this helps. If not, try to elaborate...

so... i've set the enable button on the skin setting... set the apple movie trailer lite directory in the skin setting... then opened the script setting with right key and set 3 trailer from apple movie trailer (current) and also local folder chosing my movies directory. Then i go to the library, enter in the info page, click on the theather button and first i think start the trailer of film i've selected for 1 or 2 seconds.. then start to see windows that tell buffering or something like this.. and 3 or 4 seconds next film start without displaying any trailer..

To all having trouble with the trailers, this has been discussed in several places. I'll be nice and share some links.
See starting here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=33693&page=8
and watch progress here: http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/6983
Basically something on Apple's end changed and XBMC must be updated to work again.

mmm but i never got it working.... i've installed all news update... Xbmc update.. Trasparency 2.00 and all version updated checked with svn report... Then i don't understand what's that : http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/6983 ?
Do you tell me that I need to change my user agent? It say like this right? But i see normal trailer without any troble... from apple movie trailer and from local folder.. why i'd need that?

Yes I know, I read the thread and after following suggestion there I now have a working AMT plugin. The thing is (and that's why I'm posting here) Apple MT works OK when launched from Videos -> Video Plugins, but does NOT when used from the Theater Experience plugin
Have you tried to set-up plugin to play just one trailer from a local folder - nothing else (i.e. download a trailer manually and set the TE plugin to manual folder under trailer section - leave the rest off)?
Please try that and then launch one of you Movies from Video Library (via Movie Info -> Theater). If that doesn't work either, I'm sorry your problem is way out of my XBMC knowledge...
If it does, there might be something wrong with your connection (thus only a couple of seconds of trailer showing) causing excessive buffering and resulting in plugin time-out...

i don't have local trailer stored... and i think the scraper read directly trailer from .nfo files in my library... however it's the same with apple movie trailer and local folder... and I know how to use the script... And trailer from apple movie trailer go well so the trouble is inthe plugin... The only thing can be the time-out but it's very strange because when i see normale trailer, i see them fine... However i'll wait for nuka... bye bye

This question seems unanswered, is it possible to have this script execute directly when playing a movie from library mode?

there's no need to edit the xml code, you have to enable it:
Settings > Skin Settings > Scripts > Enable Home Theater Experience script
next time, read the FAQ (#18), it'll save you a lot of time. ;-)
