Dynamic Data as Action Parameters

Recommended Posts

I think it would be a helpful thing to allow some information to be passed into action scripts.

For example, the action script could have %%MOVIEID%% as a parameter and whenever it's ran the id of the movie that will play is passed to the script. In a python script you could use that id to get more info if needed via JSONRPC.

I'm sure there's several other data points that might be helpful, like which sequence is being used, maybe what trailers have been played, stuff like that.

 

I, personally, would really like to be able to get the movie id for a future project, I tried checking the playlist via JSONRPC but that just contained the current playing bumper.

Great suggestion! We've added this to our list of improvements.
