Independence U.S.A. - kpeters59 - 2012-01-19 16:14
Thanks again for getting this Plug-In going.
Now that it's all working, can you please change it to add Independence U.S.A.?
Just kidding...not really...
All morning I've been getting the "Script Failed" error on the "Today's Archived Shows" button. Is that because something's changed due to the new shows, or because there's no archived shows yet today, or some issue on my end (bandwidth?)?
If I go to the "Today's Live Shows" there's a link to "Real News from The Blaze" already, but not "Independence U.S.A.". Which I missed last night...
And the 'front' page doesn't have a link to either Real News or Independence U.S.A..
Without Independence U.S.A., how will I know whether to shape my foil hat as a True Pyramid or an Equilateral Triangle? Just kidding...right?
I'm running Eden.

Yeah, updating the add-on to support the new shows would be great!
As to the Today's Archived Shows failed script, it's been happening on and off, so I think it has something to do on their end.

I'm breaking out in a cold sweat at the idea of using the (incredibly lame) NexDef plugin...

I don't know what the NexDef plugin is like on Windows, but on OS X Lion, it's not bad. It's better than Flash, which is nice, since the fans don't go full blast if I decide to watch a show on my laptop.
Was there talk of integrating the NextDef plugin into the XBMC plugin?
In other news, I'm going to break out in a cold sweat if I can't watch Independence USA!!!
Thanks for your hard work - WJHildreth - 2012-01-20 19:07
I just wanted to thank you for your hard work with the gbtv plugin. I am a new user to xbmc, moving over from Boxee. I have to admit, I should have made the jump sooner, but I digress.
Before your plugin, I was running a launcher to run firefox so that I could watch GBTV on xbmc. Your plugin, has definitely made my experience even better. (KUDOS)
But I would make the same request as the last guy, can you add Independence USA to the list?

The (Incredibly Lame) NexDef plugin is so lame because if you sneeze or maybe even blink while it's playing, it will completely lose it's place in the stream and it will error/time out. Then you have to try to locate your previous position to resume. Usually I just give up.

No. The (Incredibly Lame) NexDef plugin was mentioned as it's the only other way of watching GBTV on a PC. I think you only 'activate' the (incredibly lame) NexDef plugin when you're trying to FF/REW/Pause. Maybe only while it's Live?

Ohh, yeah, that's happened to me before, too. They must also use it on the iOS app, because if you blink or sneeze while trying to watch something, it stops and forgets its place. Their iOS app is worthless, as far as I'm concerned.

A great feature that I'd like to see is: Choose where to start. I continually fall asleep watching the shows, I then have to either, a. rewatch from the beginning, or b. skip forward 30 seconds at a time (takes forever).
It'd be something like the resume feature, where you exit what you're watching, and next time you go to watch that same episode again, it'll ask if you want to start from the beginning or resume from *:**:**.
Not sure if this is possible or easily implemented, but would be awesome!

Updated for new shows!
I don't know anything besides basic HTML, but I managed to read and edit the code, and add the new GBTV shows (Real News from The Blaze & Independence USA). Also, I did a little house keeping, and moved the older series down a menu level to 'More Shows, Specials, & Documentaries'.

Thank you! Thank you!
Did I mention that this Plugin works really well and I use it all the time?
