The 0.3.0 zip won't install on my XBMC (installation failed). The log complains about the addon not being valid.
0.2.3 installs fine but occasionally crashes my XBMC causing it to restart.

Many thanks for reporting this. It seems that zip file at sourceforge is corrupted - I guess due to this:
I have tried uploading it again but the same thing happens. So, until sourceforge is fixed please download it from:

I'd love to start using this plugin, but I can't get it to work. Any ideas what is going wrong?
I'm running OpenELEC on a Shuttle XS35GT

The short answer is no
The only things I can think to try are:
1. Check your XBMC user has write permissions to /storage/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/plugin.audio.groove
2. Un-install and re-install. For a complete un-install, remove the add-on from the XBMC menus then:
Then re-start XBMC and re-install the addon.

denhams - thanks for trying to help.
I tried your suggestions, but it still doesn't work.
I tried installing XBMC on Ubuntu on another partition on the same machine, and the plugin works there. So this problem seems to be specific to OpenELEC.
Are there any OS specific requirements for this plugin (that are met on Ubuntu but obviously not on OpenELEC)?
I'll try to get some help over at the OpenELEC forum too.

OpenELEC uses an external python-2.6, so its possible the plugin is incompatible with python-2.6.
I have opened a forum on http://www.openelec.tv (http://openelec.tv/forum/38-python-addons) for adding addons which dont work under openelec. openelec uses an external python 2.6 (instead internal 2.4) for various reasons. Some plugins dont work because they must be adapted to run on external python 2.6. please post a bug report there with enabled debugging and a xbmc.log (attached or pasted) after running this addon. I invite both, the developers and the users to take a look at this forum and help each other to make the addons python 2.6 compatible.

Yes, that would make sense.
sraue Wrote:openelec uses an external python 2.6 (instead internal 2.4) for various reasons.
What reasons exactly? Wouldn't it be better to use 2.4 like the other OS versions to ensure compatibility rather than to attempt to re-code addons? If not, you are really saying that all addons need to be developed to support 2.4 and 2.6 which given the number that already exist doesn't seem reasonable (unless of course future releases of XBMC will use 2.6). (I realize this is a bit off-topic for this thread so it might be better to start a new thread somewhere if it is going to be an ongoing subject).

I have the newest XBMC4XBOX. And version 3.0 from the plugin.
Everything works ok, also the username and password. I am logged into grooveshark. My own playlist is showning to, but when i click on a list there is the script error.
Is this a known error at this time, or can i do something about this.

Please post the xbmc.log so I can see what the error is.
