[RELEASE] Digitally Imported XBMC addon (Updated 20th May 2013 : V2.1.2) - bitcrusher01 - 2012-04-24 22:12
I finally got around to doing a complete rewrite of the Digitally Imported addon, and it has much more clean code that has also benefitted the new version of the Sky.fm addon.
Also, I got two more music addons on the way based on this new code.
Heres the latest changelog entry:
+ New feature
* Improved/fixed feature
- Removed feature
20 May 2013 v2.1.2
* Fixed problems related to new Digitally Imported webpage
Thanks to Vidar Waagbø for the regex patch
22 December 2012 v2.1.1
* Made 256k quality selectable from config (duh!)
* 256k is now default quality for Premium members
8 December 2012 v2.1.0
+ Added a 4th stream quality option for Premium members: 256k/sec MP3
+ Now using the config.ini file to hopefully streamline the process of updating the di.fm/sky.fm/jazzradio.com plugins
* Fixed it so UTF8 chars is handled correctly in channelnames
* Fixed a "miscalculation" that made it so when using favorites, the playlist being activated when clicking the channelname,
was actually the one belonging to the next channelname, etc.
30 Oct 2012 v2.0.0
+ Using JSON to get streams addresses instead of parsing the HTML for them
+ Added an indication of what quality the stream is, shown as i.e: 64 kb
* Complete rewrite of the codebase, making it more modular and generally awesomer
* Using Di.fms own JSON data to find streams, instead of parsing the HTML by RegEx
* Changed the highlight color of new channels from orange to blue, as the "currently playing" channel is orange in the default skin for Eden
* Changed default refresh rate from 360 (6 hours) to 720 hours (12 hours)
* Updated addons description
Thanks to DexN for making me aware of the JSON data and for being my willing guinea pig Wink
And now, screenshots!
New settings with tabbed layout
Notification of new channels
Highlighting of new channels
Playing AAC+ stream with channelart

hello...i know it's way too off-topic but I noticed you have installed an add-on for sky.fm , where did you find it?

prodigy and wilson.joe: Good to hear
kachro: Sky.fm is my next sideproject
I've only just started on it, but it seems feasible to reuse much of the codestructure from the DI.fm plugin.
I have no estimated release on it right now, as I got another project that needs som attention as well.

thanks for the quick reply bitcrusher01. I took the liberty to download your add-on from your site and took a view at the code. I am not very familiar with python coding but I realized that sky.fm and di.fm are "sisters networks" so I figure the tweak for your add-on shouldn't be that massive. (I tried changing the BASE_URL but it didn't work....lol).
Anyway, I'm gonna try to modify a few things in your files and see if I get lucky and can end up listen to sky.fm. Obviously if I do, I'll return you the favor and give you back your files, and of course, you will still have all the credit for the add-on man.
In the mean time I'll keep listening to the Ambient channel thanks to you ;=)

Even though they are "sister networks" they work radically different (in my opinion).
DI.fm has links to .pls (playlist) files with mp3/aac streams, you can download and play in a player of your choice.
Sky.fm has a "Listen now" button, that envokes a new window with a flashplayer, playing a .flv file - even if you are a premium listener it seems.
I have an idea of a way to work around this - but I have yet to implement and try it out if it actually works.

oops, I didn't notice that...I think I'm gonna wait until you figure this out then...lol

I have a problem when it seems to try and stream every channel
then finally crashes
unless I pick the one at the bottom of the list
I am assuming for some reason it tries to play everything below what I pick ?
anyone else having this problem
using XBMC 11 on FreeBSD DI plugin 1.1.1

MasterCATZ: Can you put your xbmc.log file on pastebin?
Hopefully it would give me a clue as to whats going wrong.
