[Windows] python error on all video addons - Platypus - 2011-12-27 11:31
[Edit: I pasted a link to the debug log in my second post]
I just discovered this great software and it works fine with video files and music files. But I can't get neither the weather nor the streamed videos to work.
Now I don't care much about the weather so I'll ask you about the videos:
I'm getting this error each time I try to run a video add on:
"script failed! addon.py"
or "script failed! Plugin.video.tedtalk" etc...
So far I tried these addons :
So I guess I could try them all and get the same error.
I first ran it on the 10.1 version, then tried to install the 11.0 version just in case, with no success (every error remains).
Any idea how I could fix this ?
Thanks a lot in advance.

we need to see the log to be able to help, look in my signature for how to and make sure its a debug log

There you go :
I set up the debug mode then quit and restarted, then went to video addons and tried to start a few of them to record a few errors.

Check your network settings, System>Settings>Network. Looks like your not able to reach the internet.

I don't think so, In System>System Info> Network, it shows "Internet:Connected", and "link:Connected".
And in System>Network I don't see much I could change, I tried to light up every Http/UPnP option, but the errors remain.

I tried a bunch of other plugins to see what may work, and I could make the Aljazeera plugin work, it's got a "watch live" item that works fine, and a "news clips" that doesn't.
Though for national geographic for example I cannot watch it.
I hope it helps.

@Platypus, i too have discovered these annoying errors.
i am not 100% certain, but i feel the problem may be that you may have an ip address not from the allowed region the site requires. i.e. not from USA
cause i have read others saying that the plugins work for them, but i continue to get errors.
i hope this helps.

Thanks Dam0, but it seems it wasn't the issue. I could finally solve this problem.
I thought I was not using a proxy because it was disabled in Firefox and the installation of plugins through the xbmc system worked fine.
But in my windows parameter I found a ticked " use a proxy" checkbox. So I guess the proxy was default and firefox was bypassing it.
So I don't understand much of it, but at least now it's working .

Was this Internet Explorer internet options? or something in Windows?
I too cant get really any video add ons to work.

so just to clarify Platypus....
you live in a region with a valid ip range for these sites? and had proxy set to use other region, and have recently turned off the proxy, thereby re-enabling successful authentication with US based servers??
because id like to access some of these channels also at some stage.
thanks in advance,
