I figured it out. I uninstalled the Ubuntu version, then used "checkinstall" to package and install the built version and in the checkinstall options gave it the same name as the Ubuntu one. Maybe not the best plan, but it seems to be working.

Thanks for the VBS.tv addon! I really hate to congratulate and thank you for this addon then tell you about a bug, but I have to.
The Vice Guide To Travel section will not list any videos for some reason. If you could fix it, I would be grateful! Thanks!

VBS.TV is now VICE.com, and although a lot of the videos remain unmodified for now eventually they should all be migrating to the new site. Currently there is no addon which will play VICE.com content, so we're shit out of luck and stuck with the super-slow Ooyala flash player on the VICE website.
I was using maruchan's VBS addon all the way up until the site changed, as it actually turned out not to have been that big a problem that content served from Ooyala was broken up into small pieces. It was still better than the choppy playback from within a browser. Also it's amazing that maruchan even got those videos working in the first place
*edit* for anyone else who has problems with slow flash video players within Firefox on an older PC, I just tried using Opera and it plays VICE.com content perfectly

Hello Everyone, I just installed the plugin and I am getting a script failure when playing VBS TV. Does anyone have any suggestions

Most of my plugins haven't been updated in a good while, VBS being one of them. As you can see from the post above yours, they recently did away with vbs.tv and just integrated their video content into vice.com. The plugin needs to be updated to reflect these changes.
In all honesty, I don't know if it's worth it. A number of videos on their site are split up into tiny little chunks, so every 3-8 seconds XBMC has to load a new video and start playing it, causing momentary pauses. It's very annoying. The Vice player is able to load these new clips in the background and do gapless playback, but XBMC doesn't have a gapless playback feature for video, so until it's added you're stuck with the video that breaks up every few seconds.

Suprisingly Crunchyroll (2.2.2) is working now on my atv2 nightly build after 3 months. Not sure how I did it but it. Only issue is I can't get it to work on my parent atv2 or on the ipad2 with the same setup. it still show Broken. Any idea how to fix it? Can i copy the working whole userdata folder and replace the non-working one?
Thanks a lot.

Anyone been able to get crunchyroll to install on eden? I keep getting a dependency error for it (and vbs, but thats neither here nor there.)
All of the other add-ons from the maruchan repository install just fine.
Ok I've been plugging away trying to figure it out. Seems like the cryptopy add-on is not available for eden. This is what is failing... Would be nice if the logs actually said that, but in checking out everything else I could find, this is the only missing link. Not sure if/how to force it to install and any help would be appreciated.

Huh, that's strange... I believe the Hulu plugin uses CryptoPy and that seems to work fine under Eden. As a temporary solution, you can just copy the CryptoPy folder over to your Addons folder.
