[RELEASE] Amazon Prime Instant Video plug-in addon - BlueCop - 2011-08-19 17:41
nI did a test version a while ago but this version should be significantly improved. The current version is on my repo right now.
It is still pretty basic but much better then before. It has 3 options. Movies, TV Shows, and HDTV Shows.
The Movies is a cached list of all prime movies. It has 2170 movies currently.
The TV Shows currently is cached list of all show seasons available. HDTV is just the HD content. HD and SD are listed together in TV Shows. It has 689 seasons of television shows.
I workings on adding genre, studios, actor, and director information to the databases. It will enable me to list the content in many more ways. I also plan to add movie plot and show description. It already has movie posters, show images, and full meta data for tv episodes though.
I am also changing the way TV Shows are listed by listing shows and then seasons sub directories. I didn't realize a master show list was available when I wrote the other code. It changes the way I want to do TV list cache.
The databases are built by the plugin code so people can update them. I haven't added the option to rebuild to the context menu yet. It just rebuilds the database if the db file isn't there. It downloads a current db when installing the plugin.
The HD content is streamed at 720p h264/aac @ 2500kpbs. It goes all the way down to 384kbps though. You can set your default bitrate in the settings. It also has an Ask option which will present a list of bitrate options to you.

damn I forgot to include beautifulsoup in the imports for the addon.xml
give me a few minute to update it to include beautifulsoup.
Edit: should be fixed now. You might have to force refresh the repo. I didn't realize the error because all the boxes I tested on had BeautifulSoup installed because another plug-in already had the dependency.

That fixed it. Great, thanks for the quick turnaround and your great plugins.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to install librtmp 2.4 in linux. I have been looking for a while, can anybody provide a step by step process?

Not Genuine Adobe - mythboy - 2011-08-25 20:21
I got the updated Add-On (atleast it auto-updated when I launched XBMC). I got this error in the logs:
11:19:42 T:140044811364096 M:2211631104 WARNING: HandShake: Server not genuine Adobe!
11:19:42 T:140044811364096 M:2211631104 ERROR: RTMP_Connect1, handshake failed.
Do I have to update my rtmp lib? How do I do that exactly?

FYI: On Ubuntu 10.10 here's how I got rtmpdump 2.4 since my version only came with 2.3
It now works!! thanks Blucop

Amazon Prime does not work for me. I get a list of the movies but none will play. I have the user and password configured. It takes a long time to get the list of movies and then when I choose one it comes up Opening stream and then that goes away after a while. Nothing plays. It says Playback failed.
Hulu and most of the Free Cable stuff works fine.
I'm using Windows 7 with 10.1 “Dharma” and I have the librtmp.dll 2.4.
Anyone have an idea why the Amazon is not working?
