pkscuot Wrote:It looks like the script to startup the Hulu library updates conflicts with Weather+ (at least at startup). Using the script and autoexec.py as supplied I would always get an error from the Weather+ plugin at startup. The log file said it couldn't import a needed file because import was locked by something else. If I removed the huluplus startup stuff it works fine.
Thanks for letting us know about this; should be useful for other Weather+ users!
(Note that there's no issue with using it in conjunction with the regular Weather plugin).

bluecop, you seem to be really pushing them out, so maybe this is no longer an issue, however, I will mention it just in case. It seems that when using the auto library update for some reason all my hulu subscriptions are loaded into the hulu library folder even if I have since removed them from my 'favorites' on hulu. I am getting a ton of shows I don't want. I will try again when I get home (around 6pm EST), but I thought maybe it was something you were aware of.
Is there somewhere the plugin caches the subscriptions (besides the library folder it creates)? If so, maybe it is only adding to this file and not removing when a show is removed? Just a thought. I didn't have time to look last night, I just noticed a bunch of extra shows updating.
edit: This may occur when adding to the library through the plugin as well. I never checked.

First of all thank you for this plugin.
I get a plugin error when I try to open the plugin. Im not in the US but I configured a working proxy. I use XBMC Dharma vin my AppleTV 1G, I havent fixed any librtmp file because I read somewhere that it is a problem for ATV2.
So, what should I do? Thank you very much.

I updated my AppleTV to XBMC Eden and now I'm able to open the plugin.
Here's a problem with the proxy authentication, when I play an item I can see the ads, but when it's time to actually play the item I get an HTTP 407 EROOR: Proxy Authentication Required. I know for a fact that my proxy is working, I'm using it right now to post in this forum. When I get that 407 error, then I get another one that says "Can't find a next item to play". Thank you.

Hi Blue Cop,
That was amazingly fast, thank you very much.
I have entered my details now but it still says that authentication is required and when I play an episode, it tells me that the script has failed. Is this because of the authentication issue or is it something else? The commercials play but then it cannot play the next item.
Once again, thanks for all your help.

sirmeili: I don't know what 'favorites' on hulu is. There isn't a cache for anything in that process. If it shows up in the subscriptions of the plugin then it will show up in your library. those shows are still in your subscriptions. I don't know how you are trying to remove them. It will not clear anything it has already exported into your library. You have to go to the files and delete them if you no longer want them. I will be adding expiration system in a bit.
llamedo: you're going to have to debug it. I don't know.
mattsidnell: post some logs of the script failing. i will take a look.

Sorry Bluecop. Favorites is what Hulu now calls subscriptions. I guess it is a recent change.
I have also deleted all the folders on the drive for those shows and done a library clean. They were added back, but only after the autoupdate, I don't think it did it on a manual one. I will try again tonight with the plugin and then with the auto update to verify. I'm wondering if it isn't something that perhaps the timer is doing differently that the plugin doesn't do. I'm guessing not, but it did add about 10 shows that were definitely not in the folder already and are not in my subscriptions/favorites on Hulu (though they were at one point). They also do not show up in the plugin under subscriptions. Very odd indeed and maybe it was just a fluke on my end.

It has always been subscriptions. I didn't know if you were referring to something else. it dumps your queue and subscriptions. removing a show from your subscriptions won't remove them from your queue. it just removes them from being auto-added to your queue.
I would suggest managing your queue and subscriptions on the website to confirm it has the items you want.
errr sorry i am incorrect. they call it Favorites now on the website. strange. I don't go there enough.
- sirmeili - 2012-01-27 17:33
you were right, it was my queue. I emptied and will try again tonight. I didn't know the plugin pulled from the queue and now I feel dump since I even noticed that it had a lot of episodes in it.
However, if you go to the site, you will see that "Subscriptions" has now been changed to "Favorites". I only know this because it took me a while the other night to find out how to subscribe to a show when all I saw was "Add to favorites" everywhere.
In this screenshot you can see where it now says "Favorites" next to "Recommendations":
and here is the text from Hulu:
"Subscriptions are now Favorites
We've made following and sharing your favorite shows easier by introducing favorites. Now you can mark any show as your favorite and get notified if a new episode or clip has been added to your queue. You can also see which of your friends follow the same shows as you.
Quickly access your favorite shows from a tab on Hulu's home page and TV page.
To get you started, we've added any of your existing subscriptions to your Favorites list."
Not trying to be a prick, just letting you know about the change is all Great plugin
edit: didn't see that you noticed they changed it.

I never uploaded a log, I hope I did it right. Here's the log for the 407 Authentication Required error: http://pastebin.com/xZ4jppnR
