Share any URI TO kodi

I often have a URI in my clipboard. I’d like to play that on Kodi. It seems at the moment I have to paste in somewhere (eg in WhatsApp) first and then click on it to raise the intent and then share to Kodi.

An easier way would be nice. Share URI. Input box pops up. I paste the link and click share. I tried implementing a JSONRPC command, but then I have to hardcode the URI that I want to share.

The question is more how do you end up with the url in the clipboard without being able to start it before?

Such paste dialog would generate a lot of support from users that do not understand what it does and how it works so I’ve always refused that for the moment.

Various ways, but all of them involve copying a URL as text to the clipboard, where it wasn’t a hyperlink (with href).

Examples: My seedbox at seedr.cc doesn’t give hyperlinks, but only a direct copying of url to clipboard. I assume it’s deliberately done as some security feature.

Or: I have URIs displayed in my Android terminal emulator.

Or: Some real hyperlink is malformed, so I copy it and when I want to paste it into Yatse I will fix the error.

Alternatively, make it possible to parameterize a JSONRPC command. Link variables to an inputbox or something?

Any feedback on this? This will be such a valuable feature. I needed it desperately again this morning.

It’s in next version via the paste dialog :wink: You can check translation site to have insights on features :stuck_out_tongue:
