XML <path>?


Thomas Mimlitch asked 12 months ago

What does the XML event <path> tag do?  I was hoping it would point to a folder that you would then display all the  media therein.  I’m looking for an easy way to select which slide shows to display. I have a number of complete slideshows each in its own folder.  Some have playlists in their folder and some just go by path order.  I’d like to have a master control that says for example, play shows A, D, and then B.  Another time I might change to have it just play show C.
I cannot find an easy way to do this with either playlists or XML events.  Please help!

In an XML schedule file you can use <path></path> to change the folder path.  Its the same as choosing a folder from the button bar.  You need to specify the complete path like /sdcard/path/to/folder the only wrinkle that I can see in your idea is that after switching folder you want to use a playlist in the folder.  You may need two events to do that, one to change the folder and a second to select or clear the playlist.
