Button for Random TV Episodes

Postby a06lp on Wed Apr 26, 2006 12:59 am

What I Want To Do:
Create a button called "Play Random":
Pressing the button at any level will add a random queue of that level and below.
Ex - If I navigate to TV\Scrubs\Season 3, and then press "Play Random", and all the eps from scrubs season 3 will queue up in random order.
Ex2 - If I navigate to TV\Friends, and then press "Play Random", it will queue up, in random order, every episode of Friends.
Ex3 - If I navigate to TV\, and then press "Play Random", it will queue up, in random order, all my episodes in all the seasons of all my shows.


I hope I properly explained myself.

Not sure what you use to watch video, and I'm not sure if this will work, but have you thought about using Winamp's video player? I'm wondering if you could create a video playlist just like any music playlist the use the music:shuffle command to randomly play the list. All that could be built into one event. Though I don't know if it will work for #3 of your post.

You would also have to define Winamp to play the video type in the File Types section, and possibly use XMoveWindow to set up the video display in your skin. Or see how other people have used Winamps video features in some other posts (Winamp TV comes to mind).

Hope this was helpful.

I am (and want to continue) using MPC for video.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

This has turned into a Feature Request, I guess.

Please put in a vote for this one!
