It will be quite complicated. Because your Android system and your Computer system do not work at all the same way. Applications and file paths are totally differents. This is how you could proceed :
  • First copy past the launchers.xml file located on your computer into your Android system.
  • For each files launcher, export items infos (name, description, date, etc... ) to NFO files (automatic).
  • Into Advanced Launcher, on your Android system import the saved launcher.xml file (Add-on settings > Advanced > Append XML file)
  • For each launcher, manually correct the application path and argument. Also, manually correct the thumb and fanart paths.
  • For each files launcher, manually correct manually correct the items, thumb and fanart paths.
  • Set scrapers collecting method to NFO Files (for data) and local images (for thumb and fanart).
  • For each files launcher, clear items list then scan for new items.

It surely an XBMC/Advanced Launcher bug, but I'm not able to fix it by myself.

Anyone or section in the forum where we might ask for help?...sorry to insist like this,but your add on is for me the best for emulators on android,and want it to work so bad...

Thanks for the quick fix Angelscry! Advanced Launcher has been an incredibly helpful add-on for pretty much everything that XBMC won't natively do.

Is there any way to launch (play) a playlist automatically?

For example, I have a Random Seinfeld playlist. I added it to favorites so that I could add it to Adv. Launcher, but all that does take me to the playlist. I was hoping there was a way to set it so that it would just start playing the first entry on the playlist instead of opening it up.

Thanks!

If there is a command into XBMC that allow you to start and play a playlist, it would be possible to launch this command internally or externally (by using script) using Advanced Launcher.

Thanks. I found this script, but at this point, the whole thing is over my head. I really can't believe that someone wouldn't want a simple way to randomly play (one click) a specific playlist, but I guess I'm wrong because I can't find where anyone had done it.

Thanks. I have LazyTV, but the thing that makes it what people want (watch the next episode of the random show you just watched) isn't what I am looking for. The smart playlist takes care of the order, its just the cumbersome use of 3+ clicks to do something that could be done with one.

Right now, i am using Aeon MQ and have playlists mapped to my sub menu. I would be great to just select the sub menu icon hand have the first thing in the playlist play.

I guess its out there because skins do it with widgets, I just can't find a program that will do it.
