queeup: you can get hulu accounts free. I don't see why you couldn't make one.
locomot1f: seems to be a permission issue.
Timbo1980: the rtmp server is denying your connection "Access denied!". nothing you can do.

silly me I thought there is a geo check for sign up. OK everything good now.

Bluecop, just a quick question. Sometimes I have to go into the plugin itself before I can play an item from my library. I'm guessing this is because I"m not logged in. What my quesiton is, is if this was due to the plugin being updated? I know you are doing fairly quick releases and I only get this when I start up xbmc (which is when plugins update). So I was thinking the cache folder is getting wiped and then recreated without the token.xml in the cache folder.
Another question, Once the updates stop rolling out so fast, will I still be required to log in via the plugin, or will the token.xml keep my logged in for longer period of time? Also, would it be possible to try and log in before playing the video from the library?
Ok, more than one question, but at least it's one topic.
Thanks again for this plugin. If you have a "donation" paypal let me know and I'll donate. Hulu should pay you as well. I only turned back on hulu plus because of this plugin. I had it turned off for over 6 months prior since I wouldn't use it without being able to use it directly in XBMC.

sirmeili: I can move the token to the addon_settings to keep it persistent between updates.
I wrote a fix for the problem you describe. It only tried to login and get a token when launching the root listing of the plugin. It will now always try to login if the login is enabled and the tokenfile doesn't exist. So if it is missing it will go ahead and grab one.
I haven't committed this yet. I am separating some of the ads, subtitle and playback code. It should be easier to understand and more modular. They will be easier to use in other things when I am finished.
The token file has an expiration that is checked on load and it will get a new one if expired.

Thanks for the info bluecop. I just wanted to verify my assumptions Now that I know for sure what the issue is I can do the work around until it is in place.

It is not working for me. I click to play a show and it plays a 30-second ad, then it closes the stream. Also, the ad is just audio, no video.

I read it and I can't find what I'm doing wrong. I disabled pre-roll ads and now nothing happens when I click an episode. I tried all 12 cdm methods and none work.
