What this addon does (see known issues):
- This is essentially Favourites++.
- Allows creating/deleting/renaming/ordering a virtual folder system.
- Allows linking to your addon media's virtual folders. Either directly to a video item or a folder. BROWSE ADDONS and use the context menu to "Create shortcut to this" and select a virtual folder you created.
- Virtual folders can be as deep as you want.
- Allow moving folders or items up/down to get the sequence you want. I only added Title sorting at the moment which will not affect the manual ordering you created.
- Allows managing your favourites. Delete/move up/move down/sort/copy to a virtual folder you created. When you "Copy to folder" from the embedded Favourites browser you can then delete it from the Favourites.
- The embedded Favourites browser directly manipulates your favourites.xml. Keep that in mind.
- Detailed color customization for types such as virtual folders, linked items, linked folders, favourites. It's not that deep yet but it allows you to override my color choices.
- To use the built in addon browser you must enable "control of XBMC via HTTP" in the System/Network/Services section. This module makes use of XBMC's JSON-RPC.
- Only handles Video Addons currently.
- Folders are forced to the top for now.
- Moving a folder up or down may not appear to work if the folder above it has subfolders. Repeatedly moving in the direction you want will eventually show the desired result on the screen. Moving items doesn't have this problem. This is a side effect of the way I'm creating the virtual folders and one of the reasons for the WARNING at the top of this post.
- No moving of folder or items to other folders yet.
- Some addons have url encoding issues that I don't handle yet. Hulu addon is an example of this so don't bother linking to it because weird things will happen. For these problematic addons you might be able to get away with adding a folder or item to your favourites as you normally do and then use the Favourites section in this module to "Copy to folder".
