@puulima have a look at this thread:

CBS add-on config? - puulima - 2010-10-27 00:51
Can you advise what the options Goethe CBS add-on do. And what these options aren't available on Hulu. IE: the option to download/save for CBS?
Also - CBS has an option to use "DVD Player" - not sure I understand what that is?

compatibility for XBOX as well as External Players
XBOX has DVDplayer and MPlayer

Better late than never, but here is a debug log from todays Daily Show:
After yesterdays updates for ubuntu, the problem is not as bad. The Colbert Report runs pretty well, for the last few days it only buffers once or twice each episode (excluding the commercial spot cuts and such) And the Daily show is also watchable with only around 10 buffs a episode or so... but would still prefer it without
Anyways, some system specs if you need (kernel version is in log):
Zotac Ion Motherboard
Ubuntu 10.04 with dharma 3 and newest Addons
Well thats it for now, hope you can spot the problem with this

Jbetzer: Lower the bitrate setting or get a better connection. I have no control over the buffering or playback.
If you have problem with any addons then report the problem to the google code project. Please keep feature request or bugs only in the scope of the addons themselves and not xbmc issues.

Lowering the bitrate does not work, it only makes it look like shit but still buffers all the time
The reason I am coming here is because when I used Win7 your addons were working flawlessly.
I am also using some other streaming addons at the moment, and these does not have this issue.
I am also thinking it could be a connection issue, but have no idea what the excact issue is. There is no firewall and I am using the same static ip options as I did in win7.
Is there a specific port that need to be opened in my router for these kind of streaming services?

I don't know... I have no idea where you problem is. I can't diagnose it. I use them almost exclusively on linux. The streams buffer on occasion but don't have the problems you mention.
the only thing I can say it try it on another connection. You have to isolate variables to test possible problems and start eliminating them. I would bet that this is a internet connection problem.
I simply can't trust what you actually say because you thought restricted flash player fixed your problem. Meaning your will draw conclusions without actual evidence. I mean this in the sense that I don't think you do much testing. If you simply tried a different connection then you would be on your way to fixing your problem.
I would bet that lowering the bitrate would fix the problem entirely but I am not sure you have tried that more the once. For all I know you could be saturating your connection with torrent and then telling me about how the plug-ins skips when you do this. I simply don't care about connection related issues because they are boring and there are resources out there to help you solve them.

I is quite offending to get such harsh accusations based on a few forum posts, but as I have mentioned earlier (and because of the delay with me posting a log, I wont ask of you to remember that post) I have been a windows user/supporter for 15 years and are a completely beginner with linux so excuse me if this is new to me.
Believing flash fixed the problem was my mistake, I have had problems with the native flash player in Ubuntu in firefox before, and installing the restricted player helped with those problems. I guess I just had a lucky fluke.
Regarding the connection. The first thing I did was to make sure that nothing was using the connection.
My router have been reset, I have tried static and dynamic ip ranged. I have tried every possible bitrate for the plugin and the buffering keeps occuring though at random intervals but with lousy quality. So yes I have been trying something.
I am not looking to get into an argument here, and fair enough you do not want to look into connection issues. Someone might just have had the same problem as me since your addon was the only one causing a problem after the swap to Ubuntu, but as this doesnt look like the case I shall not pester you anymore

be offended all you want. I didn't accuse you of anything. I said I couldn't trust your assessments because I think you aren't rigorous with your tests. You have correlated things that aren't connected and drawn conclusions based on imaginary correlations. Your problem seems to be a bandwidth related. If you can show me a problem I can reproduce then I will happily try to help.
