Description field for playlist items [NAVI X]

Added by ßlueplanet . about 5 years ago

I noticed you can only use a description field for video items. I wanted to write a description for a playlist item (a movie collection folder).

This shows the description but obviously doesn't open as a playlist

type=video
name=The Back To The Future Collection
thumb=http://lookpic.com/O/i2/5g5g91v2.png
URL=https://dl.dropboxusercont/future%20collection.plx
description=The franchise follows the adventures of a high school student, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), and an eccentric scientist, Dr. Emmett L. Brown (Christopher Lloyd), as they use a DeLorean time machine to time travel to different periods in the history of Hill Valley, California../description

But this doesn't show the description

type=playlist
name=The Back To The Future Collection
thumb=http://lookpic.com/O/i2/5g5g91v2.png
URL=https://dl.dropboxusercont/future%20collection.plx
description=The franchise follows the adventures of a high school student, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), and an eccentric scientist, Dr. Emmett L. Brown (Christopher Lloyd), as they use a DeLorean time machine to time travel to different periods in the history of Hill Valley, California../description

I was able to get posters showing for playlists using this
item = page.appendItem(plugin.getDescriptor().id + ':playlist:' + playlist_link, "video", {

I was hoping you could help leonid? :)

Alas current Movian UI doesn't support displaying description as well as image icon for item of type 'direcrtory'. I don't wan't to change that in Navi-X until Movian 5.0 is out...
