brilliant idea and although I struggled at first, it's now working for me.

My problems were that I was:

a) not putting my xbmc mahines ip address into the settings on my chrome extention
b) my youtube addon in xbmc was broken (was getting a login error) - i fixed it by downloading a new youtubelogin.py - more details on the youtube login error and how to fix it in the following link: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=79487&pid=1269605#pid1269605

Hi,

I am new to PlayIt, but am interested in using it with a RaspberryPi. I red in this thread earlier that someone posted a question whether or not it is possible to do so. Here the answer for a Raspbmc system (raspberry pi + xbmc: http://www.raspbmc.com/): No. At least not out of the box. Seems like a problem with the TurteService. I do not know the RaspberryPi side well enough to get along with this problem, but maybe someone in here has an idea from the following debug log of xbmc:

13:17:16 T:2937394192 DEBUG: Instantiating addon using automatically obtained id of "service.playit" dependent on version 2.0 of the xbmc.python api

Any suggestions welcome!!!

Both the chrome extension and the xbmc service are giving me a hard time:

XBMC service

After installing the service and restarting xbmc, PlayIt fails to start. Error in TurtleMain.py.
Full debug log: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=21385


Chrome extension

The chrome extension does not save my settings. Although it does give me the message:
Quote: PlayIt: Options saved!
PlayIt extension will use saved values for further requests.

Pressing the PlayIt button results in the following error message:
Quote:PlayIt: Network error
Unable to connect or request time-out. Check PlayIt extension setting.

Hi Ajay;
for me is the same above qoute Chrome Playit does not saves IP setting
Would u please look at it
thanks


RE: [RELEASED] PlayIt service : Play hosted video url remotely on XBMC - thebearnecessit - 2013-01-17 14:02

have you guys got the ip address of the xbmc box in the "url" box in the chrome extension settings?

and the correct port in the port box in the chrome extension settings (the port that matches the one set in the xbmc setings)?

by the way, i set the username and password in xbmc as blank and left them blank in the chrome extension settings.

Hi,
I installed the service and it worked great with youtube videos. But I have been trying this with a vidbux video and I keep getting errors. Here is a copy of xbmc log text:
The video link in question is def working because I can stream the video on my laptop. Any clues as to whats going on here?

Kudos. Works like a dream! Only issue is that youtube videos get split up as if a 3D side by side movie was playing. Any guesses why?

Hey!

I've installed the firefox add-on, but it doesn't have "preferences" at all (Firefox doesn't present "preferences" button for add-ons that don't have tunables). Am I missing something?

Also, I've opened a youtube video page on Firefox, and I can't find where to click to trigger playit.

This is Firefox 18.

The add-on icon appears in lower toolbar. Checkout this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3I2GcoloKk[hr]
