Love this add on! Completely changed the way I entertain.

I'm constantly downloading music while using this due to requests..
Is there any way to refresh the library with this? If not.. *REQUESTED*

Thank you though, absolutely love this.

Thank you for using the addon VELPO. Great suggestion you made.

I'll look at adding a button to refresh the library. I'll have something ready in a day or two (that bothersome thing called 'work' gets in the way....)

Cheers.

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

Thanks for the clarifications.
Love to see that you are using B-Drive (:

Ara1, currently you can't move entries around in the playlist.

I'll check to see if the functionality has been added to the API interface yet. If it has I'll be adding that functionality to the next release.

Thanks for the info Mizaki. Looks like the playlist.swap functionality is really swaping two playlist entries in the playlist. At least when I tried it that is what was happening.

To move an entriy I will need to do an playlist.insert and then a playlist.remove to move a playlist entry from one location in the playlist to a different location in that playlist.

It would be nice to have a Playlist.Move function (something I've been harping about for a while Wink )

Thanks a lot for looking into this Smile
I think you could also do it by marking an item with a radio button, providing an up/down button, and then swapping the entry one by one +1/-1.

I'm thinking about doing a "jukebox" addon myself, as so far I haven't found a Interface suitable for partys. I'm very inexperienced with programming, so this might take a while Wink

Newest version webinterface.xrc-0.0.8.zip can be loaded at.
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcontrol-web/downloads/list

Changes:
1) Added Refresh Library button to the top right of the library panel.
2) Playlist entries can be moved in the playlist by drag-n-drop.

Cheers.

Two fantastic functions. Drag and drop works great, I just can't get the refresh libraries option to work correctly.

EDIT: Refresh Libraries works fine if I manually Update Library through XBMC then Refresh through XBMControl.

Is it possible for "Refresh Libraries" to update the XBMC library? i.e. scan for new music/videos.

Ahh...now I understand what you wanted VELPO. The API does have the capability of telling XBMC to scan for new content.

I will have to add another button for that (not a big deal actually).

The biggest problem for the user is that it would have to be a two step process for XBMControl to reflect the added media.
1) Hit button to have XBMC update its library. Wait until XBMC libraries are updated (could take some time).
2) Hit the 'Refresh Library' button (or F5 to update web page) for XBMControl to update itself.

Otherwise this should be a simple change.

Ya! That was exactly what I was talking about before. Now I don't have to refresh my browser though, simply using Refresh Libraries works great and the extra step button to update the library would be perfection. I have 2TB of music/movies in my library and it takes about 30 seconds to find the new music/movies upon each scan.

Thanks!

Also since the pre-eden releases, shuffle/repeat.all issues.

Newest version webinterface.xrc-0.0.9.zip can be loaded at.
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcontrol-web/downloads/list

Changes:
1) Changed Library refresh button to a menu button with three entries:
a) Refresh XBMControl library (do this after XBMC has refreshed it's libraries).
b) Refresh XBMC's Music Library.
c) Refresh XBMC's Video Library.
2) Fixed Shuffle button to work as XBMC does.
3) Added Repeat button that cycles between modes ('off', 'all', 'single').


Cheers.

You are ridiculous.

That is all.

EDIT: ..and everything works perfectly.

Thank you.
