91dxcrx Wrote:Thank you so much for making this add-on, I've been wanting this ever since I got into XBMC. I just upgraded to Eden Beta 3 and when I go to live games it only shows one team and vs (ex: TOR vs.) so the other team and date/time are missing. Also would it be possible to have team logos incorporated somehow? Thanks again.
To fix the problem with Beta 3 go to "Settings"->"Video"->"File lists" and turn "Replace file names with library titles" off.
Unfortunately you can only set one image per game, that means that you would need an image for every possible team combination. That's a few hundred images you'd have to create by hand. If it's somehow possible to create the image dynamically I would love to add the feature.
There is also the possibility to show the logo of the home team or the logo of your favourite team only. That would be easier to incorporate but not as nice.
There will be team logos (like this one) in the next version. It was easier than I thought. The addon will download the logos from nhl.com and create an image for every possible team combination.

Ooo next version, does this mean you've had some luck with the live streams?

This is amazing..so I'm guessing you found a fix for the recent live stream problems?

No, I didn't find a fix. Sorry. It doesn't look very good. I think we'll have to wait until FFMPEG stuff that micahg posted about is implemented.
Condensed and archived games are still working. So this plugin is not completely dead...

On that note, I'm looking into the XBMC code ot see if there is something we can do. I've never been into it before, but I'm hoping I can get something in before Eden is released... but who knows (no promises)

On Eden RC1 win32 I tried modifying the live.xml to use applehttp:// but this did not work - I got an unsupported protocol nag.
Was the streaming working in a specific XBMC release, or do you really think it's something to do with the m3u8 stream?
- micahg - 2012-02-28 17:25
Yes. I don't believe XBMC has updated FFMPEG, so applehttp:// wouldn't work.
The way I see it is that one day the streams just stopped working. I hadn't changed (or pulled updated code) in XBMC to make a change. My friend who also uses this app was using the same windows build the whole time -- it just stopped working. This leaves me to believe that it is not xbmc. That said, I'm still trying to figure out how to fix it in XBMC... its a slow process!

So let's figure out what broke. I was able to get the live streams loading (xbmc was able to download the .m3u8), but it just treated it like a playlist and started from the first #EXTINF. It also wasn't joining the playlist objects (*.ts) seamlessly, like ffmpeg does.
I'm not very familiar with git, but I believe I have the Eden repo checked out.
Could it be the m3u8 handling is misbehaving?
- micahg - 2012-02-28 19:08
Well, that is what I'm looking into. I'm not at home so I can't provide a reference to the code, but the playlist player (I think that is the class) basically sees that the file is a playlist and expands it so that all of the internal items (the ts files) are added to the xbmc playlist. This is why it starts from the beginning and has a delay between ts files. I've hacked around trying to disable expanding but then it just treats the playlist as unplayable. That is where I had to leave off on the weekend, but when I have more time I'll continue investigating.

Is there a known format that just instantly gets passed to ffmpeg to compare with?
