First of all, I've been trying to figure out the code on this web page....http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...nerate_Actions
GetCurrentlyPlaying is the portion that I'm interested here. I am using iRule on my Motorola XOOM tablet to control my entire Home Theater System. I rule allows for you to have a panel with multiple buttons as well as URLs incorporated into it. I would like to draw from the getcurrentlyplaying command and insert the thumbnail for the movie into the panel on iRule. When I say panel, it's basically a page. iRule allows for many different panels so you can have command buttons for each type of equipment. I hope that makes sense.
I use this command line in iRule to query XBMC for the information.
iRule requires that you set up http Gateways which place the ip address and port number in front of the command.
The resulting command from iRule would be 192.168.1.x:8080/xbmcCmds/xbmcHttp?command=GetCurrentlyPlaying
Now, when I place that into an adress line on a computer in my network in a browser, it brings up all of the information about the movie I'm currently watching. The problem is, I do not know where XBMC stores the thumbnail on my computer. In addition, I do not know what format the command line needs to be to call up that thumbnail. For example, on the webpage I linked above, it says http://xbox/thumb.jpg
is the correct format. I am guessing that I should adjust it to http://192.168.1.x:8080/thumb.jpg
but I know that doesn't do what I need. If I knew where XBMC stores the nowplaying thumbnail, then could add to the command line.
In addition to these problems, I'm affraid that the .tbn image will not display on my tablet due to the fact that it isn't compatible with Android.
I'm sorry to be so long winded, but I'm totally lost.
