autoexec.py is an optional python script that users can create in their userdata folders that will be executed when Kodi starts up.

1 Examples

This script will open up the video files view focused on the root of C:\ when Kodi is started.

 import xbmc
 xbmc.executebuiltin('XBMC.ActivateWindow(videofiles,C:\)')

Here is an example that starts your favourite addon:

 import xbmc
 xbmc.executebuiltin('XBMC.RunScript(script.audio.spotimc)')

And this example takes you to the movie overview:

 import xbmc
 xbmc.executebuiltin('XBMC.ActivateWindow(myvideolibrary,movietitles)')
