nice, thanks Smile

got another one for ya, and its just done it right now. its my fault, i just didn't see it coming Blush

i set the temp_dir to the same as the download_dir (f:\\videos\\misc\\film trailers) basically so that it wouldn't have to do much moving of files after a download.

thing is, the script has wigged out and removed the temp_dir. dunno why, cos i was in the kitchen. anyhoo, i just lost all the trailers i'd downloaded cos my temp and download dirs where the same.

so, dont do what i did :oops:

well, as the name "temp_dir" implies, the directory is for temporary files. when temporary files are no longer needed, they are normally deleted.

for someone making a script, the easiest way to do the deleting is probably just to delete the folder used for temporary files. only a few lines of code are needed.

global loadedmovies
# x on controller or 1 on remote adds or remove favorites
if action == 18 or action == 59:

i know nothing about writing this script stuff but i do like tinkering and learning. here's my question. how does "18" and "59" correspond to "x" on the controller and "1" on the remote. i'm asking because i use an all in one remote that i have custom programmed to work with the xbmc ui. i don't have the "1" button mapped on it at all. i'd like to try assigning a different remote key to the "add or remove favorites" feature. if someone could point me in the right direction i'd really appreciate it.

by the way, to all those who deserve credit for this awesome script...job well done! i love having such a huge list to choose from. and since they are downloaded instead of cached there's no more stuttering!
thanks! :thumbsup:

nevermind. i just realized the script is just referencing assigned id tags located in the keymap.xml file. i should have looked there first. i just tried changing the id in quicktimebrowser and it worked. now i can assign it to whatever button i want. i love this stuff!! Big Grin

:update:
it looks like you can only reference id tags listed under the "global" actions of the keymap.xml. just thought i'd add that tidbit of info.

also i thought i should point out that if you're using the original keymap.xml file and you have an xbox remote then your "display" button should also add/remove favorites in this script. it's already been assigned in the keymap.xml.

hi all, i'm a newb here and i'm trying to learn.

anyway, i just updated my xbox with quicktimebrowser 1.36a, after updating it and it goes into the movie trailer list screen, any key i hit will black out the screen. it appears to be a bug or something but a reboot will allow me back into the sceen. i updated the movie list (if it matters i selected "exclusive") and chose war of the worlds and large, something on screen flashes and then i'm back at the main screen. after doing this i can no longer select anything although can move the curser, i am unable to even go back to the xbmc home screen. so i reboot and try again but this time i choose the secong "large" option for war of the worlds, it works. after the preview i'm back at the browser screen, i try the first "large" option again, same thing, a box flashes and i'm back at the home screen where i can't select or go back.

i tried the third larger trailer and it does the same thing as the first (i was able to see what it said and it was, "looking for trailer url") or someting like that.

so i'm not sure what the issue is but it seems like when a trailer isn't available it kinda of stops working.

thanks for the hard work though!

oh and i just want to add that i'm not able to play the trailer again even after i let it save it's "data file". i am also unable to play more than one trailer without having to reboot.

any suggestions welcome.

i havent been able to find this if it exists, so help if it does exist. otherwise, is it possible to add a feature that allows you to queue up a load of trailers to download, so you can sit back and watch them at another point. perhaps if there was an option in favorites to download the latest trailers of everything in the favorites list.

mouton, looks like you abandoned the project ?
sure has been silent a long time though.

hope it wasn't because i got tired of saying "wow, nice work, you're the best" - 3 times a day ?

if you have abandoned it, ok if someone else picks it up ?

1. it doesn't take data from that url. it takes the itunes xml file and parse that. since in itunes, the different trailers are differentiated using images, and not text, the xml file doesn't have any of the titles you mention.
so the answer to your question is: no, we can't show the complete trailer titles, since they're not anywhere in the data we parse.

2. no idea what you mean.

3. it already does that. change the setting to 3 and it will do exactly that!

normal, no. possible, yes, since your xbox isn't your pc, it's possible they would get different download performance, for a number of reasons, including cables, ethernet ports on your router / switch, etc.

that was in the todo queue before i lost interrest and used my free time on something else that quicktimebrowser. i wanted to add a 'download all' button somewhere in the favorites.
doubt i'll ever implement it now.
anyone who wants to try his hand using python, feel free. not that difficult, since it's only adding a button, looping on a list on click, and calling a function for each element of the list (movies).
