I apologize in advance for being ignorant, but could some kind soul guide me in the direction of using the Amazon Prime plugin with XBMC4XBOX? I assume that I need to manually install the plugin, but I'm not sure where to start - in debug, I'm getting "ImportError: No module named _winreg". Thank you in advance.

My Movie library script error - sammy410 - 2012-01-08 20:36
When I go to my library, the TV shows folder works fine. However, the Movie folder throws a script error message. I am using Eden Beta 1. Everything else in the script works fine.

Hi, all! New member, here
[reposted from the obsolete thread]
I just installed your repo and the Amazon client on my jailbreaked/jailbroken Apple TV 2, and it works! Awesome, and thank you very much!
Pretty amazing that you can reverse engineer something like a secure streaming client.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank Bluecop for providing this.
As others have mentioned, a Search function would help tremendously, but even without it it's a great feature, and something I've been looking for for along time.
One question--how do Amazon items get into the "Favorited" list? A member on another forum suggested that I Favorite all my movies from my Mac/PC to avoid having to scroll through thousands of titles in XBMC, but I can't figure out how to do that.

I am actually trying some search code someone sent me by email in December. Thanks Steven!
It works rather well for finding movies. It just plays the default episode of the chosen season rather then listing episodes though.
I am working on changing it up a bit to list episodes too.
Favorited lists are stored in your the tv.db and movie.db in userdata/addon_settings/plugin.amazon.video/
if you copy that between installations then it will copy your watched history and favorites.

most of them aren't that secure. They just use ssl. Once you get past that then it is mostly xml, json, or html that you need to parse for information.
places like hulu like to encrypt everything important. amazon seems to just be worried that you are indeed authenticated. They don't seem to protect the streams at all beyond that. You have to use a few variables to make a url and then parse the json for the rmtp links. They do use tsl/ssl for pretty much everything though.

I committed the search patch. It should list the episode for tv shows now.
Try it out and let me know how it works.
Thanks to Steven Woolley who sent me the py. I just modified it a bit so it use existing code to list the episodes and differentiate between television and movies.
Also this searches the website so will include everything available at any time. It doesn't use the databases.
I am working on adding anything new to the database when detected.

Hey all, new to XBMC... Using the amazon plugin but I'm getting an error when attempting to load content. Message says "new content found, update?" but won't let you load anything and the error shows up lower right saying the plugin is NG.
BTW, bluecop repo is bad arse, nice work.

Have you entered your amazon name and password?

I just registered on this site so I could thank you. All previous attempts to view Amazon content on my anemic 8-year old PC were horrendous. Jittery video, constant pausing, buffering issues. With this add-on, it's beautifully smooth. Thank you thank you thank you! This just saved me from buying a Roku!

So then I scrolled around looking for "Nova," but didn't find this episode.
Finally, I came back here for help and saw that you'd committed the search code. I found "Dogs Decoded" in an instant.
Evidently the title is "Best of Nova: Season 6 [HD]," which is why I hadn't been finding it by scroll.
Thanks again, Bluecop!
