Just tried this and it works great!
Any chance we can have a time this runs for on a HTPC that is always running? So the video isn't playing for hours on end when we are asleep or at work?
Something like play videos twice and then stop or run for two hours and then stop?

Living Room i3 • W7 Ultimate x64 • 120GB SSD • HD 7750 • 2x TBS8922 tuners • Aeon Nox 4.0

I have created a similar script that can be configured to limit the number of trailers to be played, it is called Random Trailers Screensaver andis available in the official XBMC Repo under Programs.

Has anyone used this with an Apple TV? I am running OpenELEC on a 1st generation Apple TV and I am unable to exit the screensaver using the Apple Remote. At first I thought it was a problem with the exit delay but after I connected a keyboard and pressed escape the screensaver stopped.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I just noticed that the screensaver is only playing through the entire directory of videos twice and then crashing.

XBMC boots up
waits 60 seconds
screensaver starts
plays all files in directory
back to the home screen
waits 60 seconds
plays files in directory
home screen
goes into dim screensaver



Any ideas? Is there a different method I should be using? All I'm trying to do is loop a directory of videos anytime the screensaver would normally be on.

nice

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
