script errors - mgwofford - 2010-12-27 19:59

Hey Guys,

I am also having script error and IE is not launching, but I am fairly certain that the playercorefactory and advancedsettings are in the right place.

Here is the log file.

I have loaded and run on my laptop and it at least got to the authenticiation with Netflix, so it just seems to be this computer (my HTPC).

It is running vista ultimate (laptop was running XP).

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

go into the addon settings and change the thumbnail quality, for some reason it doesn't pick up on the default quality level, after you pick it once it works correctly.

not sure about the external player not working, does the ie one work, or none?

exit xbmc and then try again, it should link out to the browser for auth, it appears that part didn't work correctly when it was run

If I understand you correctly, I went to Settings/Addons, went to the netflix plugin, configure, general, Poster quality changed from HD to Medium.

Still no thumbnails
EDIT:
changed to small then back to HD - works good now
thanks!

Yes, I have tried deleting that file several times. Same error and it creates the file, but with nothing in it.

could it be a firewall issue?

I don't think it would matter (the firewall) as you should still see a browser window open up.

Does the browser window open up, asking you to link it to netflix?
Do you get the prompt in XBMC to click OK after linking it in the browser?

You may want to try turning on debug and verbose user information. Note: with that on, you don't want to post the log until you clear out any user strings, long strings of numbers/letters.

No, the browser window does not open asking to link it. I only get the error message in the lower right corner.

I did turn on debug and verbose in the addon settings. I posted that log file above. Is there a different logging that I should be looking for?

Just Saying, Those that are posting logs, Please use pastebin.
If your posting your config use the
Code:
[ CODE] [/ CODE] function (without the space next to the bracket/forward slash
Its easier to read, and people can narrow down the problem slightly faster.

I also do not see the user strings in the log file. I am missing that somehow.

Same here.

I see you mention you deleted the profile folder to fix this.
Any pointers as to where that folder is under XBMC Winows version?

Anyone have any luck yet on the AppleTV? I'm still getting the script error when opening my instant queue. Also, when do I enter my Netflix credentials? Confused


- divajess - 2010-12-28 10:25

I am also having Apple TV issues. I changed the path for the browser to where my Firefox install under NitoTV lives, but it won't launch the browser and allow me to connect the add-on with my account. Any help would be great! Thanks.


- fekker - 2010-12-29 20:29

I'm working on the next rev, if anyone wants to test it out, it's adding support for the Disc queue items, it will also generate the .xml's as needed for the OS

I can't test with OSX, apple tv and Vista so any feedback on those would be good as well as all other OS's.

For OSX users, be sure that the first thing you do after install is open the add-on settings and select the OSX option.

You can grab the zip from here
https://github.com/spudsdude/XBMC-Flicks/zipball/master

When you first choose the items (like Instant Queue) it should open a web page that will prompt you to login/approve the app to netflix. In xbmc you'll see a dialog that says to click "ok" after that step is done.. that associates it with your netflix account.


- Quackmeister - 2010-12-30 00:19

First of all, great work. This plugin eliminated my one reason for keeping boxee around.

However, I have been trying to make this work for the better part of an hour and have had no luck with a persistent problem. It is probably just a rookie mistake but here goes:

1. I added the code you provided to the two xml files. There is a lot of other stuff in my <rules> and <players> sections in the playercore file, but I just ignore them and add your code at the top. The two xmls are attached at the bottom of this post.

2. I installed the plugin from the XBMC.org repo.

3. I launch the plugin and click on "Instant Queue"

4. An IE window pops up, asking for the username and password of my netflix account so xbmcflix can be authorized

5. Netflix successfully authorizes my account and asks if Id like to go to netflix.com home

6. I say yes, then close the browser window.

7. I return to xbmc and there is a pop up window saying "loading directory" with a progress bar at the bottom

8. The progress bar hangs at 0 items, and xbmc crashes if I hit cancel.

I have reinstalled the plugin multiple times, and believe that the problem is in the xml files. Can you help me out here? also, sorry for the long post but I wanted to give as much info as possible.

ANyway, here are the xml files:

Oh and I am running Dharma final on winXP 32 bit and the above problem happens with every option, not just "my queue - ALL" Also, a browser pops up every time I retry, asking me to authorize xbmcflix with my netflix account.

Code:
First of all, great work. This plugin eliminated my one reason for keeping boxee around.

However, I have been trying to make this work for the better part of an hour and have had no luck with a persistent problem. It is probably just a rookie mistake but here goes:

1. I added the code you provided to the two xml files. There is a lot of other stuff in my <rules> and <players> sections in the playercore file, but I just ignore them and add your code at the top. The two xmls are attached at the bottom of this post.

2. I installed the plugin from the XBMC.org repo.

3. I launch the plugin and click on "Instant Queue"

4. An IE window pops up, asking for the username and password of my netflix account so xbmcflix can be authorized

5. Netflix successfully authorizes my account and asks if Id like to go to netflix.com home

6. I say yes, then close the browser window.

7. I return to xbmc and there is a pop up window saying "loading directory" with a progress bar at the bottom

8. The progress bar hangs at 0 items, and xbmc crashes if I hit cancel.

I have reinstalled the plugin multiple times, and believe that the problem is in the xml files. Can you help me out here? also, sorry for the long post but I wanted to give as much info as possible.

ANyway, here are the xml files:

7. I return to xbmc and there is a pop up window saying "loading directory" with a progress bar at the bottom

At this point there should be a dialog that tells you to restart the plugin (in 1.0.8) or restart xbmc (in the dev branch code)

what it's doing is writing that information to the userinfo.txt file
make sure you have read/write permissions to that folder and that the file is not read only
You should be able to delete that file and it'll recreate it (starting with 1.0.7 version)

here's what I recommend
delete the userinfo.txt file
create a new empty file there
try it again

put the plugin into debug mode if it still fails and pastebin the log for inspection
