I have a suggestion.

I don't know if it possible.
But to be able to save the playlist on your XBMC box through the webinterface - would be really awesome.

Very good suggestion.

I am currently working getting this app completely moved over to the new JSON-RPC interface.

Looking through the API I don't see any easy way of doing this but I will research it. Also you would probably want a way to load it too Wink


Cheers.

Another vote here for this one. I never sit at my XBMC server since I only use it for music. I deal with it completely through the web interface. The more features I can access through the web server the better.

Great work though. This is the third interface I've dealt with so far and by far the most useful and full featured.

Thx for the good work

Looking forward to the new JSONPRC version. Hopefully working with linux paths Wink

I would like to see the Recently Added/Played in the Genre menu if at all possible.

Thanks for your work so far Smile

These instructions need to be included in the ZIP file or somewhere on the Google project page, I've been going mad trying to work out how to install this! (Newbie to XBMC). My additions in red bold text

Kabooga Wrote:Steps:
1) Download webinterface.xbmcontrol-0.0.2.zip from
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcontrol-web/downloads/list

2) In XBMC.
3) System->Add-ons->Install from zip file.
Select file from where you saved it. Wait a few seconds, it won't necessarily confirm installation worked
4) Systems->Network->Services->Web interface
Select XBMControl Web
5) From your web browser, open
Code:
http://[XBMC IP ADDRESS]:[SERVER PORT]
E.g.
Code:
http://192.168.0.1:80


Please remember to delete your browsers cache if you previously opened this page or have used an older version of the web control.. Otherwise it may show the 0.0.1 version of xbmcontrol.

In addition, I do not use XBMC libraries, I just use it as an interface to play media from my network shares. Therefore, the ability to browse files is great! However, it's difficult to know how to actually add them to the playlist, it's not as simple as clicking them; it just appends a new file in the list called "eg123.mp3Not folder". Therefore, for other users:

To add files from 'Files' list to playlist:
  1. Browse to file or folder that you want to add to playlist
  2. Drag and drop file or folder into playlist window on right of screen

Hey great Interface! Thanks for your work.
However I have a few requests, that I hope you will be willing to integrate:

1.) could you integrate a context menu button to the remote, please?
2.) how do I play single songs? I can only select whole albums so far and then erase the other songs from the playlist.
3.) I have a windows 7 tablet and I would love to see an option in your interface to choose between a version with big buttons (tablet friendly) and a normal one!

Sorry for the long time being away. Life issues and all....

Iggy82: Thank you for the input. I will add your notes. I need to recognize that this will get used more and more by "newbies" to XBMC.

Alceste: Context menu? Can you please elaborate. Also your suggestion about bigger buttons is a good one. Which Windows 7 tablet do you use?

Pre-Eden release of XBMControl Web can now be loaded.
Note: This will NOT work with Dharma release of XBMC. This has been tested with nightly release 11-29-2011.

Steps:
1) Download Pre-Eden version of XBMControl v.0.0.4 from
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcontrol-web/downloads/list

2) In XBMC.
3) System->Add-ons->Install from zip file.
Select file from where you saved it. Wait a few seconds, it won't necessarily confirm installation worked
4) Systems->Network->Services->Web interface
Select XBMControl Web
5) From your web browser, open
Address: http://[XBMC IP ADDRESS]:[SERVER PORT]
E.g.
Address: http://192.168.0.1:80

Please remember to delete your browsers cache if you previously opened this page or have used an older version of the web control.. Otherwise it may show the previous version of xbmcontrol.


This new version includes:
1. TV Show library support.
2. Upgraded to extjs 3.4 framework for stability.
3. Supports the JSON API provided in Eden.
4. Fixes to progression and sound sliders.


Once XBMControl Web is deemed working reliably by users (you guys Smile ) I'll submit it to the Add-On repository.

Nice Smile

Just had a quick play. If I select Music->Library->Genre->All->Artist I don't get any albums? If I select a genre it works fine. I tried in Chrome and Firefox.

FireBug console is spitting:
Code:
Element referenced by ID/NAME in the global scope. Use W3C standard document.getElementById() instead.
currentlyPlayingText.innerHTML = "Nothing Playing";
XBMControl.js (line 1205)
Element referenced by ID/NAME in the global scope. Use W3C standard document.getElementById() instead.
albumArt.src = "images/defaultAlbumCover.png"
XBMControl.js (line 1206)
Element referenced by ID/NAME in the global scope. Use W3C standard document.getElementById() instead.
connectionStatus.innerHTML = connectStatus;
XBMControl.js (line 1209)

And I'm playing a TV show and the Currently Playing box has:
<Episode title>
undefined
undefined

Chrome console has:
Code:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)
http://10.0.0.101:8080/images/x-grouptabs-corners.gif
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)
XBMControl.js:350 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'limits' of undefined

Just to keep you busy Smile

Thank you again Mizaki. Your helping me alot.

I've downloaded Chrome and FireFox and have the developer consoles going. Will start cleaning up the console output.


This will keep me busy for a little longer (though not much...) Smile

Newest version webinterface.xrc-0.0.5.zip can be loaded at.
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcontrol-web/downloads/list

Changes:
Make changes to clean-up console output from FireFox and Chrome.
1) Clean up accesses to elements.
2) Added gif files that were missing.

Changed library query for artists 'All' to fix condition where albums were not being displayed.

Cleaned up currently playing to reflect type of media playing. ie Video files will not attempt to show album, artist info.

Enjoy.
