handonam: check out the python development forum. also voinage wrote a good tutorial to get you going in the wiki. most all the addons i know of are open source. so find one you like and get your head around the code. python is super easy and google is a great resource too. I am not that good of a programmer myself. I have to pull out documentation all the time.

BlueCop Wrote:dobbelina: unfortunately the trailers are only available on akamia cdn. So none of the trailers will work. They would have to start mirroring them to limelight for them to function again. I can't solve that issue but will try to add better error handling. I can fix the search issue. I forgot to update the search code to pass the content_id rather then the pid that was previously used. Searched items won't play till I patch to fix that. Thanks for reporting the bugs.
No go for CBS in Canada, though that is me trying without a US proxy as I don't have one that I can use at the moment.. see if I can dig up a free one that I can try
Is there something special you did to allow South Park to work, or is that one just an odd exception?

I'm trying to learn as well, my biggest roadblock right now is trying to figure out how you figured out how to scrape the sites as you did

Hi again Bluecop!
Still getting the "Error retrieving or decrypting the SMIL file." message,
when trying to start a "Family Guy" episode.
(This time i didn't use search)
Family Guy log
And still the empty quality choice screen when trying to play Jay Leno.
Jay Leno log
Have tried several different Tv shows, both by searching, and clicking thru
Doesn't matter, the 2 errors stated above always occur.
Have i missed something, like the need for a proxy or ?

Ok was able to grab a US proxy and videos on CBS play perfect now.. rather slow navigating around, seems to take 10sec+ to populate lists..
Otherwise all videos I've tried so far work no problem!

Eldorado: I would checkout a web debugging proxy like fiddler or charles. having easily search-able traffic makes it easy to figure out rtmp links. also you can find the parameters used to get them and then search where those parameters came from. I would also look into flash decompilers and take a look at any action script in the players when they use obfuscation or encryption. They could also use signatures for requests and that code is usually in the swf.
dobbelina: I am stumped. It seems the smil files you are served don't contain limelight mirrors. I don't know what is causing this but none of the videos will work without limelight mirrors. It is the only functioning CDN right now. where are you located? I can't replicate your issue. I am still going to add better error handling but that won't solve your issue.
I did a small update to add search to yahoo music videos.

Thanks very much BlueCop for your work and help.
I am getting the same error as dobbelina. I am in the northeast US, not using a proxy. Happy to use one if need be, I just didn't want to add another layer of complexity.

Great plugin. The spiketv works great. Watching blue mountain now. Can you make this work ith trakt plugin
I am having problems on hulu. I can watch one show fine in hulu however trying to watch another show I get an error "Error retrieving or decrypting the SMIL file" . This only happens on certain shows and others it plays fine.
hmm. I think I found out why. The shows I cant watch are hulu+ shows.

Hi again Bluecop!
I stay in Sweden.
If i can't go down this route with the plugin, do you have any recommendations regarding proxy alternative/s ?
Thanks for trying to figure it all out

rflores2323: There is a settings to filter non-plus content in the settings. Let me know if there is a problem with it. I am a plus user myself so don't really use it much so let me know if there is a problem.
dobbelina: I don't know. I don't really use proxies.
if anyone is having problems with hulu. please turn your quality settings to Ask and attempt to confirm that limelight mirrors are present. If they aren't then nothing will be playable.
I committed an update to CBS to only list subcategories of shows that have videos.
I also committed the fix for hulu subtitles to work again.
Yahoo music videos now has search. That should make it more useful. MTVN still is missing tons of videos because of UMG dispute. That doesn't seem to be resolving anytime soon. I have done some work on a vevo plug-in because it has the most quality and selection.
