The really cool thing about this is you can use it with active desktop in xp too. it works pretty slick but has trouble selecting songs (not directorys though).

For those doing XBMC HttpApi development, you may find this command line tool useful.

Heres a neat little tool I've been tossing together hope it works well for everyone so far it does. If you dont already have ur shares setup and working in XBMC then you wont get this working eather well the Internet Explorer part should though anyways enjoy!
WEBServer Must Be Turned ON in XBMC so it can receive commands!
!!USE ATLEAST A JULY 2006 BUILD of XBMC or NEWER!!
ETXVS & IESTX V2.0 - Combination = Gold!
This is a combination of the two apps below because they worked a lot smoother when I combined the source as now it no more needs to open a new browser window for IESTX when u right click a link to send to XBMC.
also cleaned up absolute paths some more so they are no longer static and will find the proper folder to put everything in now. YAY!
Even if you only want one of these you should just use this version anyways because it works much slicker.
ETXVS V1.0 - Explore To XBMC Via SMB
This adds an option under the SendTO menu of ur right click context menu in File Explorer windows, so that it will tell xbmc to start STREAMING that file from that shared resource. You must have youre shares accessible from XBMC first and functioning with the username and password set in the gui settings of XBMC.
This will NOT send files to the xbox hdd from windows it only commands xbmc to play the files from the share!
IESTX V1.0 - Internet Explorer Send To XBMC
Right click on links in Internet Explorer send to XBMC to start playing URL.

i was wondering if anybody here still worked on xbmccontrol, its a great app!!
The only flaw i see though is i would love for it to prompt user for a username/password before the prompting of your xbox ip address, i know that you can manually input it but it would make things SO much easier if i could ammend the source code for it to work, ive a little knowledge of vb but unfortunatley i have no idea where to start. thankyou for all your help
- nad - 2006-08-23 22:49
XBMCControl is my app. A few days ago I uplaoded a new version to SourceForge which doesn't have any major new functions over the previous version but should be slightly more robust.
As far as username/password can't you just add the details to the ini.txt file using the same format as the xbmc configuration file?
- dbrood - 2006-08-23 23:14
thx for getting back to me,
first off great work on your app,
secondly i think i didnt word my question correctly, i access my xbox webserver externally, so it is password protected, in vers. 1.23 i can add username= and pasword= into the ini.txt file and it works fine, (unfortunatley this doesnt seem to work in vers 1.5, ive even tried copying the working config from 1.23 install to the 1.5 but still no joy) my question was when the ip wizard is run (when ran manually or when config isnt detected, i wouldve liked a user prompt for the login details for the webserver as my xbox will not reply back, with timeout errors as it sits there waiting for authentication, putting the username credentials into the ini file works fine.
ive had a look at the source code and ran through it step by step using vb.net express (all i could get my hands on) and it seems to not even touch the thesettings.username.
sorry if none of this makes sense, prog. int my forte, but this app has inspired me lol
love the fact you can click on the screen shot in the display tab only for xbmc to respond lol didnt expect that.
once i put the user credentials for the xbox webserver in i can then rerun the setup, which then syncs up my bookmarks, after that all is fine.

That's a very clear explanation. I have probably done something silly in recent versions; I don't use the passsword feature and wouldn't have notice if I had. I'll have a look and upload a fix. If it doesn't happen tomorrow then it won't happen for a week since I am going away for a week.

thanks again nad for the reply, sorry i didnt get back to you been in hospital with kidney stones, they had to screw a pipe from my kidney to my bladder, which as you can guess is pretty painfull, especially when it feels like im giving birth to a bowling ball!!!
i look forward to your next release
glad to see its sill worked on!
- nad - 2006-09-04 16:43
dbrood: That sounds awful, hope you are feeling better!
I have uploaded v1.6 to SourceForge which should fix the password problem.
If you are using the PocketPC version then you will need to also update xbmc to the latest cvs - there was a small problem with xbmc which only the PPC version failed against.
