- add folders and media items to the xmb.
- act as user-defined external players.
Jumpy began with my having grown tired of occasionally poaching stuff 'by hand' from xbmc addons for use in PMS, and deciding to see if I could mock the xbmc plugin API itself so as to run these addons under PMS as-is. The result is Jumpy plus jumpy-xbmc, an included set of python modules to 'jump' the xbmc addons.
Jumpy-xbmc works with most xbmc video addons: Hulu, Free Cable, Al Jazeera, PBS, Academic Earth, YouTube, and many more. Addons are 'mostly' functional in the sense that all content is shown but interactive features that require user input are inactive.
Jumpy itself is general-purpose, of course, and you can use it to plug your own scripts/commands, python or other, into PMS as well.

Jumpy-0.2.2 - 5 September 2012

- new feature: scripts as players.

- new player scripts:
webreader - browse snapshots of your web pages.

Download and unzip to your plugins folder. See also the new Windows Quick Setup.
Note 1: if you already have a jumpy-scripts.ini in your PMS profile folder, temporarily rename it and restart. Jumpy will write a new default ini with the examples included, then merge your original ini by hand.
Note 2: when reporting bugs please set logging to TRACE and attach PMS.conf + debug.log + jumpy.log + jumpy-scripts.ini + pmsencoder.log together as one zip file (or use the DbgPack plugin).
