when i click on most of the videos they cause the xbmc to get stuck, and i need to close the program and open it again, and after a few of these tries i finally get a video playing. why are most of the videos causing xbmc to stuck? do i need to change something in the xbmc settings or what?

Same thing happens to me and it's really really annoying. I'm using Dharma RC1 on Win7. Sometimes when you click a video it hangs the XBMC completely and you have to kill it. Then you go again and click the same video and it works. It's very easy to reproduce since happens all the time. Debug logs don't show anything interesting about it.

I cannot get 1.66 to run on Myth 10.04 (RC2) It installs fine and I can launch and choose enter then I get an error #2, cannot find path
'HOME/XBMC/.XBMC/USERDATA/ADDON_' this is all that it shows and then starts re-scrolling the error. I have 1.61 installed manually and it works or at least loads.

Im using v 1.6.6 which i bellive is the latest.. Im on Dharma 10 final.
Linux that is.
And yeah almost all the video devil scrapers causes lock ups and hangs xbmc.
I guess there is some bad error handling in the code that causes xbmc to crash allot.
Gonna do some more error log checking to see if i can do a proper bug report later on
Dunno if there is someone updating this at the moment ?

I just updated the repo to the latest version. I guess it wont fix your problems,
but let me know about the status.
I cant get the addon to crash on my windows 7 machine (dharma 10 final)...

Nice one ! thanks alott. I'll try the new version and see what happens.
I'm on linux Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic XBMClive Dharma.
I'll report back with a debug log from a session, some sites
are more often to crash than others. MoviesAnd is one of the worst to
crash on my system. It doesent hang or crash when browsing but usually it hangs after selecting a videoclip to play, usually before the video is even on screen. Or it hangs in the middle of a videoclip.
Get back to you...

Ok i have given your new version a fast test. I used the "MoviesAnd" scrapers for the test since that has been the most unstable...
I just chose latest releases and started from the top. This time around i got
to start 6 titles without any problems, however on the 7th item xbmc again hung
before video was displayed. So it seems to have become a little more stable, i will do more testing later to see if this is true or not.
Here you have a debug log of my test session with videodevil:
The one that hung xbmc starts at line 1784
i managed to hang xbmc 4 times on aprox 20 titles tested.
The debug log didnt tell me any obvious but maybe for you ? do you have any debug logging for your plugin ?
On inspecting the debug log i can see i get many errors from pulseaudio. Pulseaudio is linux only i bellive so if it is something with pulseaudio
it could be the reason why you dont have any problems on win7. But thats just a wild guess from my side

Go to the addon settings and enable the debug logging option (second option), then we´ll see some more details...
Thanks for your testings so far
