I posted this in the ios section but wanted to let you know of your awesome work, these adons work great
HULU... Works in HD awesome, it takes 2 mins to load a vid but works
CBS.... WORKS in HD ... loads quickly awesome...
South Park Studios----- HD works awesome...
Vevo-- works great but not in HD
TBS-- Works loads hd however stuttering
Spike Tv- works Stuttering
Is their a way for vevo to stream the videos in hd like the website?

kobun: thanks for the feedback.
I am a bit confused because Hulu doesn't work in HD anymore since akamia and level3 CDNs converted to the new swf verify. CBS and southpark do work in 720p. VEVO works in the same quality as the website. their highest quality stream is 848x480 h264/aac from what I have seen.
TNT, TBS, SpikeTV and Yahoo Music Videos all use VP6/MP3 for their codecs. The iOS version will stutter on these streams because it doesn't have hw acceleration like it does for h264. adult swim and cartoon network also use vp6/mp3 but they are low enough resolution to be decoded fine by the ipad/iphone.

on hulu i tried bobs burgers, modern family, and outsourced. and it looked hd. much higher resolution then 480p...

Well I can say with some certainty that it was just 480p(720x400 or 640x480) on hulu. If you want to get me somes logs I can confirm that. VEVO is higher resolution then Hulu at the default quality levels.

found it in the log tp:defaultbitrate="650_h264" for modern family and bob's burger... still looks really good fooled me

Thanks for all the effort man, this is very cool stuff.
Couple of questions though:
1. Is there any way to make my user queue / subscriptions show up? I have set it to login with my Hulu+ account already.
2. What is the chance that the Hulu plugin works for an extended period of time? Can they shut it down easily?
Again thanks for the effort, it is very much appreciated.
no audio (linux) - GregoryK - 2011-01-26 19:04
Anyone have any ideas why I am getting no audio in the streams? The video works great (Daily Show, Hulu, Colbert) but no sound? I searched the thread but didn't see anyone else report this problem.
Flash playback works fine in Firefox and in Hulu Desktop. Playing other XBMC content works fine, as do the XBMC navigation sounds.
I'm using optical audio out of my motherboard. Mythbuntu 10.4, Dharma svn. Flash 10.2 beta (but was having the same problem with the standard ubuntu flash plugin before).
Thanks for any ideas, and for the great plugins!
better than playon - mcdizz - 2011-01-26 20:12
Thought it was worth mentioning, for anyone wondering: I tried using PlayOn with my xbox (mainly for netflix ) - but this plugin works much better for hulu etc, and netflix rarely works with playon anyway - save your time/money! thanks again bluecop.

FenceMan: 1. I am working on it. I got it mostly working. I want to speed up hulu first (mostly for iOS but all will benefit). The way I am using BeautifulSoup is really slow so I am going to try to speed things up.
2. No guarantees. I will try to keep it functioning. they use 3 CDNs to mirror their content. 2 are already using an unsupported swf verfiy which keep us from using them. These 2 are also the ones streaming HD content. an update to librtmp would be needed to support these CDNs.
GregoryK: I am not sure. Get me some logs and I can try to help.
mcdizz: I am not a fan of playon myself. I wish we could get netflix support in XBMC.
