i created this before i realized another mtv plugin existed but no longer functions. discussion here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=9508

i got it and installed it to see if i should release this and the plugin doesn't seem to function anymore so i am going to go ahead and release this.

just wanted to say this is completely independent from the other script.

Update: download an addon version here http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VI31V6X7

Where is this SVN repo? I would love to be able to watch music videos streamed to my plasma. Typically I just download the .rar script like navi-x and then upload to my xbox. Is there another way perhaps via the xbox itself to get these scripts? I know this is the wrong place to ask, but help me out please...

I actually think it is only playing it with dvdplayer. i am not sure mplayer will play rtmp streams at all. i should probably remove the option.

i have saved several of the problematic videos and they the saved files play fine with xbmc in mplayer but even played localled with dvdplayer it will output static and think it is pcm sound rather then mp3

Upload a video somewhere (PM me if need somewhere to stick it) and create a trac ticket please.


Latest T3CH build, error with script - PantsOnFire - 2009-03-23 18:49

Hey there,

Great idea for a plugin, I've been looking for something like this for ages.

Having problems tho, I get the error "python script failed" upon trying to load a music video.

Here's a log:

I'm also seeing this python script error, but I'm going to try the other player. I was using mplayer. Ideally though it would be great to have the most popular videos from mtv. Just something I can click play and it will run through them continuously.

I plan to. sorry i am just slow sometimes. I feel like should research it as much as possible.

PantsOnFire: i can't replicate the problem. that mtv url is for Audioslave - Like A Stone and i am playing that video right now without problem.

if you have a crash or problem with the script please post the artist - song name. also you platform

are you people having problems all on xbox?


- nicoli_k - 2009-03-24 02:05

I have an xbox with the january 25 build and it is working for me (except for the weird playback problem on some of the videos which is currently multi-platform.)
thanks for your work BlueCop!


This rocks.....almost.... - lewis.donofrio - 2009-03-24 03:38

Any fix for the snaps and superfast playback.....

like Drowning pool - let the bodies hit the floor.....)-: wish it played right.....I'd be willing to beta test any effort to resolve this.



overall, one kick ass job though!Shocked


stacking - lewis.donofrio - 2009-03-24 03:48

request - allow us to play a whole directory......like the whole duran duran list.....Nerd


- BlueCop - 2009-03-24 03:51

I just submited a bug report to xbmc trac for dvdplayer.

http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/6138

i also tested my header theory by changing the
audiocodecid value from the header from 0 to 2 which i believe means mp3 and then then dvdplayer plays the file perfectly. 0 is for uncompressed. dvdplayer is trusting the flv header when it is incorrect.

I want several features like this. play all and play random where it will build a xbmx playlist for you and play it.

for genre video listings i want a random continous play. randonly select a genre video and repeat.

you can also look up artist related to a specific artist. so i want a continous random play with a specific artist as a seed and you could determine how many branches of related artists you could use.

i want to get favorites and searches working first and then move on to cooler stuff. The favorites will have 2 categories artists and videos. I want full playlist and random play type features for these.

Top videos from mtv or something similar isn't really high on my list because popular music doesn't interest me much. i would prefer a more customized experience with your chosen artists.

anyway i hope to have a continuous to semin-continous music channel on my xbox or at least thats my hope.
