bluecop's beta video plugin repository - BlueCop - 2010-08-17 18:47
Which addons are on the repository?
The Daily Show
The Colbert Report
South Park Studios
Yahoo Music Videos
What is the status of these plug-ins?
Can I use these plug-ins to build playlists?
Yes! I recently learned how to use the resolveurl properly in plug-ins so all these should be updated to work correctly when building playlists. Also all shows or episodes served as multi-segments are now stacked instead of making a playlist of them. XBMC treats them as a single item.
Which XBMC should I use?
How do I install the repo
Download this zip and the in the Add ons section of XBMC choose install from zip.
I found a problem. what do I do?
report the issue to the google code project and I will try to fix it.
Please post debug logs, xbmc build version, addon version and platform.

You say there is a somewhat working version of hulu plugin?
Where do you grab this from?
All the git versions I have found are un updated and do not work. Please post a working link or info how to get this.

I didn't grab it from anywhere. I am working off the base of the XML feed version maruchan posted in the dev thread and applying my patches. It isn't really ready for mass consumption. If other people who have hulu plus accounts want to try out the HD feeds then I will commit a version. I don't want to try to support other people using it yet. It isn't really useful to non plus members yet anyway. Except maybe the limelight cdn fix.
I looked through my old project directory and found a spike tv video plugin I abandoned because it used swf verify. I got it working again with a couple small updates. It still has a couple things to fix but all the full episodes work. It is spike though so not always the best content. I plan to clean it up a little more and commit it.

OK... Fair enough Thanks very much for all the hard work you have put into these and explaining what is going on with hulu.

Will any of them work outside the states without a proxy (or other ip hiding tool) ?
- BlueCop - 2010-08-18 18:58
abfmdf: CBS has proxy support in its settings.
mtv network does not have proxy support. It has region locked videos for different regions though. so some videos in the us are locked out. I am not sure what region they are authorized for though.
The Daily Show - i had some reports on its support thread of it working in other regions but haven't really had anyone report to me any problems they had so I can't improve support.
South Park Studios: i have had reports it works in Netherlands but not in Canada.
The Colbert Report, Yahoo Music Videos - I have had zero feedback from these two plug-ins. This thread was my first time releasing these. so you can try them and tell me if they work.
I can add proxy settings to all of them if that's what people want. There are several cases when it isn't needed though. It only uses the proxy for its interaction with the site and not streaming the media.
In most cases the smil(Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language) file is served with geo protection but the rtmp server is completely unlocked. In other cases they rely on a separate url that a flash client will return a result from. Like in the case of NBC Universal they geo protect their media with a simple connection to a server that returns a region code. You use this region code when connecting to the AMF gateway to get the smil url. So here you can simply lie about your region to the AMF gateway and it doesn't seem to mind.

A fantastic answer Bluecop, When I get back home I will give them all a try and report back (am in UK)

Are any of these plugins compatible with the xbox? The xbox xbmc does not have the addon manager so I have tried using tortoise SVN to try and export your plugins to my PC from the trunk directory... but they all fail after running in xbmc in the xbox. Am I missing something when I try a direct copy of the files from the svn folders?

The only one that worked for me was the daily show. (But after I changed my IP to an American one they were all fine)
- BlueCop - 2010-08-20 18:24
abfmdf: did you try the proxy settings in CBS? if you don't mind I would like a little more detail.
Jopplehead: pre-dharma only right now. I don't use an xbox anymore. I think they are failing because of the xbmcplugin.getSetting takes one parameter instead of two. I will see if I can add detection for xbox to change the xbmcplugin.getSetting usage. if you replaced the "pluginhandle," from each xbmcplugin.getSetting then they should work but I don't have a setup to test on xbox right now.
