BlueCop Wrote:Akamia has switched to a type 2 swf verification which hasn't been reversed yet. I posted about the problem on rtmpdump mailing list.

It is just a matter of finding a developers motivated to look into this. rtmpdump guys seem to have no interest. More sites will start to use this and someone will figure it out. It is just a matter time.
Also I am doing some tests on flash user agent exceptions used by flash media server. They can exclude certain clients from requiring swf verify. It might be possible to completely bypass till they reconfigure the server or someone figures out this new type of swf verification.

Interesting approach looking into the user agent whitelist. Hopefully something will come of it. I wish I had a device that was capable of streaming Hulu so I could sniff the network data, as you said.
Out of curiosity, would you be willing to implement the ability to toggle different CDNs, perhaps under an "Advanced" tab in the settings (like in the new Youtube plugin)? Right now you can set the quality to "Choose" and select Level3/limelight streams that way, but it would still present the Akamai listings. This won't fix HD streams, but it would be nice to exclude Akamai completely for the time being (until Hulu implements Swfvfy 2 universally )

Sure that will be no problem. I will just add priority to a chosen cdn for auto quality selection to the settings. I am missing the 720p streams. I was hoping to find a solution for akamia before releasing an update but that doesn't look likely at the moment.
update: I committed something for CDN selection so you can easily avoid akamai for now.
I keep misspelling akamai. I want to switch the last two letters all the time.

great repo man!...really enjoying the plugins you offer. thanks! I just noticed that when i goto TV -> Alphabetical -> its always sunny in Philadelphia i get this error:

Hey BlueCop, I noticed that no one made a plugin for CW yet. I don't know if they use rtmp or not, but I think people would appreciate it if someone made a plugin for it. (They have the show Nikita)
Just a suggestion. . .

First thanks to Bluecop et al for all the hard work on making and fixing these plugins. I'm just a little confused at what i am supposed to do in order to make hulu (and others) work on this xbox. cptmarginal has laid out the steps of installing dharma on to the computer and then installing the plugins, and copying the plugin folders to the plugin folder on the xbox, then coping the contents of the script.module lib folders to the system\python\lib folder on the xbox. at this stage the plugins do not work for me on a clean install of the 30688 build. i'm also not sure where to put addoncompat.py and xbox.py. do i need to put then in the system\python\lib folder as well? or inside the individual plugin's resources\lib folder? i am able to browse to episodes on cbs, hulu, & tnt, but i cannot actually watch the shows...i feel like i'm so close, just missing something simple..(i hope) thanks again!

Thanks bluecop for your work.
A special thanks to "cptmarginal" for figuring out how to make this work on the xbox for us people who could not figure it out.
@ "angel4b" :
I just followed cptmarginal's guide and it works fine. The way you are describing what you did; it sounds like you did it correctly. Unless I have something installed in my system I do not know about that is making this plugin work on the xbox; I did not have to install the addoncompat.py and xbox.py at all. I can tell you that I am using this on a slightly older build than you. I am using build 3.0 Beta 1 r30673.

Thanks Jopplehead. I think my problem was i was using the last T3ch build....i tried it all over again with a clean install of the latest nightly build, and it worked...well hulu and tnt worked for me...nothing else. Thanks again everyone.
