The problem I was having with all my movie/tv/music missing because I "upgraded" to XBMC nightly builds is SORT OF fixed with the latest XBMC Commander release.
SORT OF as in all my library icons reappeared but now I can only play music. I can't get any TV shows or movies to play. I can get movie trailers to work and play through XBMC.

Nightly builds are experimental. If it's causing problems, don't use it.

Apologies for taking so long with the crash log from this - had guests staying with us, so had no time really... Still having the problem, seems to be only with the music library - some songs, which show up fine in XBMC, do not show up in Commander, and if you try and play the album the app crashes.
Not sure which part of the crash log is relevant, or where to send the full thing - this part below seems to be the crash as far as I can tell?

My problem is simple, I can only use the "remote" part of the app. I am using it on an iPad 1.
I have the Library working beautifully on my HTPC so am wondering whether I am doing something wrong? By the absolute lack of information on the XBMC commander website, I'm assuming that the app is just meant to automatically populate everything to mirror the main library?

Still on vacation, but i'm stuck in my hotel room with a twisted ankle today.
While this is no fun at all, at least i find the time to catch up with some questiones that have arisen in my absence.
I'll answer these in reverse order, and as good as i can without access to my development machine or any testing environments
Quote:I have the Library working beautifully on my HTPC so am wondering whether I am doing something wrong?

I can think of a few possible causes, mostly depending on which version of xbmc you're running:
- If your running 9.11 (aka Camelot), please consider updating your XBMC installation. XBMC Commander won't work with XBMC versions < 10.0
- On the other side, if you're running svn or nightly builds, update XBMC Commander to 2.0.3. The interface i'm using for communication is currently under heavy development. And although i'm trying to keep up, you'll have to expect breakage.
I'll have a look at the crash log when i'm back home next week. I think the part you posted should be sufficient.
Quote:The problem I was having with all my movie/tv/music missing because I "upgraded" to XBMC nightly builds is SORT OF fixed with the latest XBMC Commander release.Thanks for the info, i'll have a look at it. That's one more loose thread after the recent JSON changes
Hard to debug without detailed insight to your systems / libraries.
Missing items are usually related to exotic caracter encodings that make the jSON parser choke and stop parsing. Duplicate items i haven't heard of yet though.
Please check if everything is looking fine on XBMCs web interface, to rule out any errors on the servers side.
Quote:"Enqueue Album" does not work on the iPhone version, even though the button is there in the interface.Sounds like a bug, i'll check this when i'm back.
Advanced search options will be added at some point, it's not in the app atm because data is only stored when requested, and thus not available for offline search.
VNC support would be interesting, this actually might improve the virtual keyboard a lot. But i'll have to find a free vnc client library first, since i won't be able to do this from scratch. I'll have a look at the chickan of the vnc source code, and if it's not too complicated i might give it a try. Will still be a lot of work though, so don't raise your expectations too high
upnp is similar...
All your other points will be considered.
@BruceH, considering movie set thumbnails:
I'm doing a VideoLibrary.getMovies, and take the thumbnails that i get in the response. The command looks something like this:
Resume playback is theoretically posible, but i'd have to use the old http api to gain direct access to XBMCs database for this, since this function is not exposed on XBMCs api for remote controls.
I won't go for this for now, cause the old api won't be available much longer - and i don't want to add functionality that might stop working forever with the next XBMC update (or the one after that).
I'll add a feature request for this to XBMCs tracker.
Love the "mockup", would require some basic redesigning though.
But i'll have to touch the base code again sooner or later, i'll consider things like a split view (thats what we're looking at there) or a cover flow again.
Quote:I have one problem with this app, which I wonder if other people recognize. If I select a song from my music selection and press play, the song starts immediately, but it takes a while (like a bit over a second) before I actually hear some sound. If I use the normal remote this doesn't happen. Quite weird. Also I can't stop the music using the stop button in the "remote" part.I've heard about the stop button a few times now, i'll check this when i'm home.
The delay is new to me.
I've experienced something similar when i started using XBMC, but that was pulseaudio related back then and is long fixed in my installation. No idea atm.
Quote:When you user remote screen which displays currently playing item, when playing music I see song name but I cant see Album name.Yep i thing i'm just displaying artist - track up there. You're right, i should add some more info.
Thats it for today folks, i'll adress the posts i've left out later.

Grywnn, I've reverted back to the official 10.1 and all is back to normal. I'll run the nightly builds seperately just to satisfy my bleeding edge curiosity.

Hi there, I have an issue of the commander not connecting to xbmc like 90% of the time.. It's just says connecting and nothing happens. Or just says disconnected.. The way I fix it is by going to setting on the commander and change the port from 80 to 8080 then back and sometimes it connects and sometimes it does nothing.. Am I doing something wrong? Does it have a specific port it needs to be on? Thanks!

I used the chrome REST plugin to send this command.
For a "normal" movie (not a set), I get:
For a set, I get:
In the XBMC client, the movie set does have an assigned thumbnail.
Any idea why it's not coming through in the JSON?

I have this same problem.

Thanks. I figure adding Album name can't be that much of a hassle.
Also when playing YouTube video remote screen displays last played Album art or Video cover next to progress slider. Its nothing critical but you can either display YouTube logo or screencap of the currently playing YouTube video.
Can YouTube search display more results then it does now?
- x23piracy - 2011-04-30 13:49
with a big library it's hard to navigate through all the content without an alphabetic sliderbar/jumpbar, can this be implemented?
Something like that:
