    I'm asking because I haven't seen any problems with the artist context menus in my plugins. Not sure I've tested all different scenarios though.
    Its a problem for plugins which pass an xmlbrowser hash which needs browsing into as the artist context menu. I've added something to onebrowser which makes this work (both for the next youtube and my spotify plugin) - in r32451

    Announce: Release 0.9

    I've just updated the release in main repository. This release adds the following:
    - add recently played menu item listing last 20 YouTube track played
    - fix context menu on youtube searches (broken by 0.8)
    - make artist context menu work (requires 7.6 server version r32451 or later)
    - small optimisations to playback code

    No, I believe it's commented out because Michael only briefly used it, then decided to process the links in the plugin and make the content available through the plugin which has the advantage that you don't have to switch apps.
    I originally added it when the plugin did not yet allow to dig into additional content layers.

    I don't think the plugin uses XMLBrowser, doesn't it?

    It doesn't use xmlbrowser itself but is called via it as trackinfo is xmlbrowser based. Let me take another look but it seems that I can't just include the link as a weblink.

    Could you add it as a sumbenu item which would not be XMLBrowser based then?

    IF that's NOT possible: from the next iPeng version on iPeng will browse text for URLs so an item containing the URL in the text would then work, too, albeit not as slickly as the weblink for some reason.

    If you got the following would it be usable to you:
    Code:
                              {
                                 actions => {
                                       go => { weblink => "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uelHwf8o7_U" },
                                     },
                                 addAction => "go",
                                 text => "Watch YouTube Video",
                                 type => "text",
                               },

    I don't think so, but I believe this would work:
    Code:
    {
        text => "bla",
        item_loop => [{
                          text => "Something, e.g. the URL as text",
                          weblink => "http:/...."
        }]
    }

                          weblink => "http:/...."
        }]
    }
    OK I can do that by adding an extra menu level, so the track info context menu contains a "Play Video" link which goes to an another menu with a "Play Video" entry and the weblink. I have this working, but unfortunately the youtube app on my ipod says "Could not load movie" - do you know the specific format of youtube urls which work? (I've tried both the formats you posted above).

    Update - it actually works, but only on some videos - looks like may music videos won't playback on ithings using the youtube url for some reason...?

    I don't know the reason but I've seen it in the facebook App, too.

    Isn't it only some of the videos that are available on iOS devices in the YouTube app ? At least I'm pretty sure that was the case in the beginning.

    Maybe this is what you are seeing ?
    Or do you have problem playing videos which can be played through the standard YouTube app ?
