Just a little update. I have some working subscription and queue stuff using a new non rss method. I am having a problem doing the authentication to get the special token in python. It is different from the website. Once I have that token it works. I have the algorithms for signing the requests reversed as well as all the needed 'actions' but I get rejections in python but the same thing works in a web browser.
Also search needs a new feed processor for search results but it is essentially pretty easy to do.
My atmels for my ps3 mod came in so I am going to be playing with that for a while. I will finish search but I have a new unlocked toy so I will be hacking around with it.
I might poke around the hulu plus app for ps3 and see what it might hold of interest.

Hey BlueCop, since the 2.6.0 update to the Hulu plugin I've noticed that after an episode finishes playing, the listitem will become blank, losing the title of the episode. So, let's say I play "1x1 - Episode Name", after I've finished watching it, the text will now be blank (but will still show a check to indicate that it's finished playing the item.) I've also noticed that streams will sometimes stop playing at random points.
I know you said your HTPC hard drive crapped out, so in the meantime I'm going to try and update to the latest SVN to see if that remedies it. If not, I'll try to grab a debug log and see if it gives any more info about why the stream cut out.

Try using svn r33393 or higher and see if the blanking issue goes away or I heard it will make it into Dharma beta2. it is a fix from this ticket.
I have had a couple episodes drop and I saved the logs. it looked like librtmp didn't know how to respond to a command it was receiving. It hasn't happened alot though. I have streamed 3 hour movies fine so I don't think it is a length issue. It wasn't that annoying because I could just skip back to the point where it dropped.
HTPC is back up and running with a 40gb ssd. It is a lot snappier now with an incredible boot time. So a failure turned into a great upgrade.
Yea install the latest. I found a couple small issue with studio lists which is slowing it down a little but I will fix that soon.
newest hulu should be 2.6.1 too

This is working great and just keeps getting better, so thanks again.
Is seeking working for anyone else? I remember it working a while back, but somewhere along the line it stopped working and I can't determine which SVN revision broke it for me.
XBOX Anyone? - KindSir - 2010-09-07 22:13

I'm wondering if anyone (Jopplehead or others) has had success getting bluecop's plugins to work in xbmc4xbox...

I can't get them working myself. I have a modified version of hulu to use addoncompat.py but you also have to get BeautifulSoup and cryptopy manually and put them in the lib directory for it to run on xbox. I still can't get the videos to play or plugin settings to show up. It always errors out trying to get the smil. I haven't figured out the problem yet. I don't know what the problem is.
edit: well I got it working after messing with the crypto module.
I would like a nice clean way to install it with dependencies as well as update plug-ins.

Updating to the latest SVN build did indeed fix the disappearing list item

Seeking is very slow for me on Win 7 x64, as it is with all RTMP streams. I'm not sure if this is an issue with libRTMP or XBMC, but I'm guessing XBMC since it used to be much better and if you enter the time manually (by punching in a time on your remote, such as 15:23) it will jump to the correct position and resume playing very quickly. Might be worth posting a ticket on the trac.

KindSir: I want the plugin to be able to prompt the user to update itself when needed since they don't have the add on system. Give me a while to get something setup and then I will add downloads for the available plugins which could then be updated on the xbox. at least that's my plan.
I have been working on adult swim and cartoon network a little. Not much has changed. I want them to be really polished because they use http and I can submit them to the official repo.
I have been researching other plug-ins.
TBS & TNT - both similar systems and it's pretty easy to get the rtmp and auths.
AMC & A&E - uses AMF gateway to get rtmp which is a little more complicated but I have used pyAMF before in my NBC Universal plugin.
I have found some good feeds for shows and episodes on TBS & TNT which use the same setup just on different sites. I still need to find some ways to list episodes for amc and a&e.
I would like to look at abc too and finish nbc but they are a low priority right now because they have the same content on hulu. I would like to do something for the full episodes on comedy central. Their system uses the mtvn uri system on all viacom companies so that should be easy.
I really don't mean to try to spread out too much. I just don't see them being made right now and they have content I would like to have the option to watch. If anyone else is interested in making plug-ins for these sites drop me a pm and I will forward you my research if you want. I would love for more people to make some of these. If not then I will try to slowly complete what I can.

Nice work on the addons.
However, full episodes of the colbert report and the daily show doesn't work outside USA so if you wanna fix this you need to change.
- BlueCop - 2010-09-08 04:11
Thanks. I will update it to include the changes.
