I know the wiki says it is not possible but can the script authors do somthing about this ?

I would LOVE to be able to add Apple Trailers script (maybe youtube and google also) to the Video menu ! Just to make it look even more like appleTV.

the authors of XBMC should have added this hack along time ago.

add what? You can do this currently. You just make a button that launches the default.py file in the Apple Movie Trailers folder. Unless I'm missunderstanding you..

I think he's looking for a direct link to the trailer for the video file selected.
so when you select a video you can go directly to it's trailer from the white button menu.

I think he wants it in the actual video list not a extra button on the side.

thats it .. to have it in the video list would be awesome my gf is hooked on that script and i think it would be better she should not go to settings/scripts first,


wiki says:
Scripts can not be added as a playable source under e.g. My Programs or My Videos as they are not playable elements per se, but actual folders.

is there any workaround ?

Here is the jist ezkimo,

[Image: l_68ae63daff16cf8ae7f114b82af7af61.jpg]

<control type="button" id="17">
<description>Play Disc normal push button</description>
<posx>375</posx>
<posy>414</posy>
<width>305</width>
<height>40</height>
<!-- <include>10009</include> -->
<label>Movie Trailers</label>
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript(Q:\scripts\Apple Movie Trailers_v0.96\default.py)</onclick>
<onleft>18</onleft>
<onright>10</onright>
<onup>31</onup>
<ondown>5</ondown>
<texturefocus>default-button.png</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
<textoffsetx>22</textoffsetx>
<aligny>center</aligny>
</control>

<control type="button" id="37">
<description>Play Disc hidden push button</description>
<posx>375</posx>
<posy>414</posy>
<width>305</width>
<height>40</height>
<!-- <include>10009</include> -->
<label>Movie Trailers</label>
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript(Q:\scripts\Apple Movie Trailers_v0.96\default.py)</onclick>
<onleft>18</onleft>
<onright>10</onright>
<onup>31</onup>
<ondown>5</ondown>
<texturefocus>default-button.png</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
<textoffsetx>22</textoffsetx>
<aligny>center</aligny>
</control>

<control type="image">
<description>Disc Focus arrow image</description>
<posx>640</posx>
<posy>396</posy>
<width>25</width>
<height>75</height>
<texture>home-buttonarrow.png</texture>
<aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
<visible>[Control.HasFocus(17) | Control.HasFocus(37)]</visible>
</control>

<control type="image">
<description>Disc arrow image</description>
<posx>640</posx>
<posy>396</posy>
<width>25</width>
<height>75</height>
<texture>home-buttonarrow-alpha.png</texture>
<aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
<visible>System.HasMediaDVD</visible>
</control>

That is the TYPE of change you need to make, the above will give you a button right below System in the xTV skin, it will also look really bad if you have a disc in, and the animation will be off, but above is how you would need to do it, I tested it, and it works fine.
You press down from System, the Apple Movie Trailers gets highlighted, when you press select, Apple trailers opens right up.
Use the above as a idea, and make it look the way you want it.

Hope it helped.

Hi,

I have seen a small bug at the Favorit window in the List.
The list field is to long.

Not exactly the right place to post a bug, but all well. It is fixed in the svn.
