View Full Version : Linked List Container Functionality?

August 25th, 2009, 03:12 PM
I would love it if Boxee supported a linked list container. Until that happens, I'm trying to craft a work-around.

Container 111 is episodes, container 112 is extra video content that is associated with each episode. I want the list of extra video content in container 112 to change according to which episode in container 111 has focus.

I have one rss feed for the episodes (where each ep. is numbered according to <media:category scheme="urn:boxee:episode">103</media:category>), and one rss feed for each episode's extra content. E.g., Ep. 103's extra content is in a feed called 103.xml.

So, I'm trying to set content in container 112 (extras) according to what has focus in container 111 (episodes) with the following:

<content type="url" url="rss://my.repository.com/" + str( ListItem.GetEpisode(111)) + ".xml">

It isn't working. :(

Are there flaws in the above approach? Is there a better way to approximate linked list container functionality?

Any help would be much appreciated - thanks!
