Add ability to play on ipad - plankanater - 2011-03-14 04:03
Do you think you will add the ability to play xbmc items on the ipad?
Small request - martdj - 2011-03-14 15:55
My first post in this thread. I'll admit that I tried out XBMC Commander for free for a while, but today I actually bought it as I think it's a brilliant app and deserves support. The other reason I bought it is so I can ask for another feature without feeling like a cheapskate
Next to selecting my movies with my friends, I also use XBMC Commander to listen to music without needing to switch on the TV (my media center is connected to my amp). When finished I'd like to switch my media center off which for me always means putting it in suspend mode. XBMC Commander has a shutdown command, but it brings up the shutdown menu. to select Suspend from there I have to switch on the TV. My normal remote (which I now hardly use anymore) has the "red button" programmed to take the shutdown action from the XBMC settings (System Settings-Power Savings-Shutdown function setting). Is it possible to put a button like that in XBMC Commander?
I searched this thread a bit (probably should have done that before posting my question, but anyways) and found that AgeOfPanic apparently had the same wish and found a way to change the default shutdown behavior to this option. Any hint on how he did it (what's the command to enter)?

Answer is still the same:
If at some point server side transcoding and streaming is added to XBMC, i'll add this to the app. Until the it's not possible.

You might try to add a custom button: Hit the tools icon on the commands list, and have a go at the various XBMC builtin commands. There's a ShutDown and a Powerdown for example. I haven't tested these myself but one of these might do what you're looking for.

Please send me the output of the command i've posted a page back.
I think there still are some special characters in your servers responses which make the apps parser choke, and i'd like to find out which and get rid of the problem.

Airplay - krijeck - 2011-03-16 10:37
Works perfect your app!
just one question ... is it possible to link the Trailer Button to the iOS internal Youtube App and not to Safari?
Then Airplay would also work!

Just want to say...great app, I using it with the dharma build of xbmc and it all works pretty much perfectly...exactly what I was looking for.
1 slight issue I have noticed though, is sometimes when the app is in landscape mode all I can do is load to the remote screen and when I press any of the other buttons/paths e.g. Music, TV etc. it crashes back to the home screen (of the ipad). This will happen everytime until I change the orientation to portrait, which seems to stop it.
I have re-installed app (version 1.8) etc. and the issue remains...any thoughts?

Unfortunately, it isn't
YouTube only opens when linking to a single clip.
Since i have to link to a search page, it's safari that jumps in...
That's not my choice, but the way iOS behaves.
I'd have to use youtubes api and do the search within the app, then link to the first result or display the results within the app. While this is theoretically possible (thought about it when adding the youtube link), i haven't found it to be worth the effort yet.
