It 'Q' mode only runs once. It needs to be started from the Home Window.

The 'Q' mode only runs once per activation from the Home Window(Main Screen). To get it to run again, you need to go back to home and start it again.

How about old trailers too within a movies genre and or rating?

Another thing Id like to see is a "time machine " mode. basically you click on an old tv show and it plays old commercials before and after the show. Say Im watching the cartoon ninja turtles and it plays commercials before and after it that could of originally aired with the show.. This kinda fits in with my original idea of playing trailers for similiar movies around the same time frame.

Hey giftie

Still loving this app - everything is working now except local trailers. I've been trying all sorts of different options combinations but I just cant get it working.

Here's what I currently have going on:

Trivia
Movie Theater Intro
Feature Presentation
Movie Raitings

Here's my pastebin - http://pastebin.com/2psiNVzU

Any ideas? Thanks so much!

You have the Limit by MPAA rating turned on for your trailers but the trailers don't seem to have any .nfo files with your trailers(which is needed to determine the MPAA rating)

Thanks giftie, wow... that actually explains a lot. I always wondered how it pulled trailers, not sure why an .nfo file never occurred to me. Hmmm... well that definately presents a problem then - I have hundreds of trailers in one central directory with no .nfo files. I have been putting all in one directory because it was irritating in XBMC occasionally having the trailer of a movie play before the movie when you clicked play on a folder in file mode in Videos. Not sure what to do now..

Hmm, question on the XBMC Movie Library option under Trailer Scraper, how would that work? Would it read off the video names that were in your library and try to match accordingly? I'm guessing if that was the case the trailer would need to be in the same folder as the movie - would it work if the trailer was in a subfolder (something like \Movie\Trailer\trailer.avi)?

You can always turn off the MPAA/genre matching on trailers. Then you can use HD-Trailers.Net Downloader(with the proper setup) to download trailers with valid NFO files.

The Movie Library option pulls the trailer info from the database and uses the paths supplied by the XBMC.

Interesting - this made me curious to start digging around in the movie.xml file that's generated using the app that I use for my trailer downloads (Media Center Master). At the very bottom of the XML theres a tag for TrailerURL which is the URL to the YouTube trailer, and there's a LocalTrailer tag which contains the path location to the local trailer it downloads. If its possible, something you might want to consider implementing maybe an option to scan the XBMC library but to pull the trailer from this local path. This might be a good temporary alternative solution too until the devs fix the issues with the streaming videos that some of the others have been talking about. I'm not sure how easy all of this would be to implement, but if something like this possible it might be something to think about.

As always thanks giftie - if every other company in the world had this level of tech support the world would be a much happier place Smile

Hi Giftie, love the concept behind this script, thanks a lot for writing it!

However I'm in the process of getting it setup still, had a few hitches but I figured them out except for this one (very important) issue.

I'm using the Neon skin, since it has built-in support. So I got movie Info > CinemaPlay and it launches my slideshows, trailers, and movie countdown. Then it takes me back to the movie selection screen.

So I'm wondering why it isn't playing the movie? (I'm guessing this has come up before, but I couldn't dig anything up after a short bit of looking)

Also I'm wondering what the minimum requirements with regards to using features of this? (For instance do I need a movie countdown or could I skip out on it?)

Here are my debug logs (Sorry it's in 2 parts pastebin wouldn't accept it in one part)

Part 1: http://pastebin.com/EE28E5nu
Part 2: http://pastebin.com/8amrDkCd
Thanks a lot!
