Seeking not working? - craig_d - 2010-09-28 18:18
First of all thanks for the CBS plugin - it allows me to watch the latest CSI before its here in the UK.
However, I have noticed that if I try to seek - either in little steps (30 seconds) or larger (10 minutes) - the the video just hangs. Sometimes after about a minute it recovers. Others, it seems to lock up - and the total video time increases to some invalid number.
Is this a known issue? Is it due to having to use the us proxy?
I'm on the latest (as of last night) svn of xbmc.

It's a known issue. It's not the plugin's fault or the proxy's fault, rather it has to do with libRTMP or XBMC's seek code. Grab a debug log and post a bug report on the trac.

The hulu plugin looks like a realy cool plugin. I realy want to test out this plugin, but it doesnt seem to work for me. Ive been reading thrue the most of this thread and looking at the hulu website. I guess the reason that I cant make it work is because i live outside of the United States(I live in Norway).
Is it any way that i could make this work?

hulu uses 3(akamia, level3, limelight) separate CDNs(Content Distribution Network) and each one might be different in their geo restriction enforcement. A Swedish buddy of mine is going to set me up something soon so I can give you guys some hard data on what is possible with just a proxy. If you really want hulu purchase a US based VPN and use it because it will consistently work. Even if one of hulu's CDNs doesn't enforce geo protection there is no guarantee that will not start at some point soon. The multiply CDNs seem to just be used for load balancing because most content is mirrored across all three. akamia is the only one that seems to offer HD streaming for plus members.
Disabled Repository - samiam7 - 2010-09-28 21:11
First off, thanks Bluecop for the great addons.
Secondly, I was having some issues with one of the addons so i dried uninstalling and reinstalling the repo. Then i tried to disable the repo. Now I can't figure out how to re-enable it. It does not showup under disabled addons. I have cecked to make sure the repositoy is in the addons folder in the filesystem.
I am running the latest SVN on Linux.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

samiam7: not sure. Have you tried manually deleting the repo from your addons directory and reinstalling.

Yes .-) make a vpn connection to the states .....
I made such a vpn connection for a xbmc user that reside in switzerland and
wants to watch the shows from the UK.
With openvpn it is very easy to setup a link to the states.
As son you have a connection over openvpn you can watch hulu inside
xbmc and other multiple other services that are not viewable with a ip that is not coming from the states .... (Youtube ...)
As a alternative search a free proxy server with us ip
Fixed seeking! - craig_d - 2010-09-30 21:41
Applying the patch from here http://trac.xbmc.org/changeset/32756 (as found in the bug report http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/10204) seems to have fixed my seeking issues.
If outside US - ndeshmukh - 2010-09-30 21:59
Check my posts on BBC Iplayer and iTV catchup.
You need to setup tor and proxycap. Get a US exit node through Tor. Then route all port 80 (Akamai) requests through Tor. Thus you will get authenticated as in US. The actual data comes on port 1935. Let that bypass your proxy, and then you will have unhindered stream.
I just confirmed that this works. So there is a free soln, till it works.
