tnolte Wrote:So I'm trying to determine if CBS has in fact changed something with their video source. A couple of weeks ago when I first setup bluecop's CBS plugin everything worked great, as does Hulu, then a week later (all last week and this week) CBS constantly buffers and even the buffered video is laggy. What is interesting also is that the CBS video found through Hulu is doing the same thing, however all the other "on-network" Hulu videos play without a hitch. Seems like CBS is either not able to handle the serving the content or they have changed something to thwart those of use trying to get the content via XBMC or other settop means. Should I submit debug logs for this issue?
Tonight my wife tried to access her CBS Soap Y&R from the "off Hulu" search since the listings are missing in CBS - no problem finding it, but everytime she tried to play it, same issues you describe, buffering/lagging and some audit repeating. I was attributing the buffering to the fact that my internet connection isn't too quick and the video is HD, however sounds like there might be a "base" issue in there also?
Real issue - and again, not sure if this is a connection issue? But a few minutes into the Soap, it would quit and go back to the menu of listings. She tried 3x before giving up. It quit and different points...
If anybody out there with a fast internet connection could try playing the Young & The Restless - using the off-hulu search, and choose yesterday's episode (10/27) and see if it plays without quitting...that would be helpful. Yeah, sorry about the actual content
I can pull up the xbmc logs if that helps also.
EDIT: hey, cool, this post just elevated me to "Senior Member" here....

htpc guy Wrote:Here is the Hulu wallpaper that I created. It uses fanart found from across the web (mostly stuff from Aeon). I created it to look just like the Hulu wallpaper in the plugin except it is 1920x1080 so it fits perfectly on a widescreen tv. It can also be resized for 720p screens as well. I am currently using it on my home screen for a custom Hulu shortcut in Transparency!
Here's the one I found on the web, also 1920x1080:
@htpc guy - could you post the raw art you used for the photos - before applying the perspective and stretching etc. Either the individual pics or the aggregate. I like the clarity in yours but would like to do something different with the photos...be glad to supply the end product back to you also. Thanks!

Unfortunately I only have the full size files left. I resized everything and put it into a folder on the desktop and deleted them after I was done.
However you can Google Aeon Fanart and you should find some good download links for all of the originals in 1920x1080. Then take them into Photoshop/gimp and resize.
If you have Photoshop you can create an action and resize all of the images and then use adobe bridge to copy all of the files and put them into one Photoshop document in layers. It probably took less than 10 min. to set it up.
If you run into troubles let me know and I can resize the images again and upload them. Where is a good place to upload a zip file?

Is anyone else experiencing crashing in hulu? Every time i try to launch a video, it goes to stream it and then xbmc quits. Just curious to know if anyone else is experiencing this.
Also bluecop for an awesome repo.

CBS Bold & Beautiful episodes started all showing up as "(False)" since I think two days ago. Episode can actually still be played, but at the same time, no episodes newer than 10/25 are shown by the plugin right now.

I've got PS and AI so shouldn't be a problem...was just being lazy so I didn't have to go collect all the pics I'll play around with it...thanks!

I'm doing testing on various TV shows and came across this error on more than 1 occasion - see attached excerpt from the tail end of the XBMC log file.
I went to the Hulu website and noticed this particular episode (Pilot/#1 for Outlaw) isn't listed there...so assuming that this error means "Episode NOT Available Anymore" ?

I have the stable version of xbmc live installed on my hard drive. I have been looking left and right to install the bluecop's plugin, but I can't. Is this not supported on the live version of xbmc?
I could do a manual installation if only someone provided me some instructions. Thanks.

Thank you for that link, but I think I did not make myself clear.
I was able to download the zip file from
Unzipping this file gives me an xml file inside it.
But how do I install it on the current stable live version of the xbmc?
