[RELEASE] Grooveshark (Plugin) Music Addon - An alterntive to the Grooveshark Script - denhams - 2010-12-21 17:25
This is a plugin, rather than script, based addon for Grooveshark.
I originally based it on http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-grooveshark/, which I think is now no longer being developed.
However, the API has been updated from the active project at http://code.google.com/p/grooveshark-for-xbmc/.
To avoid delayed start to playing, I would recommend using the DVD player as described in the FAQ section of this thread:

In case anyone is using this, I have updated it (v0.1.5 at http://sourceforge.net/projects/xbmc-groove/) so that the songs directories are displayed much, much quicker.

Thanks for this I prefer the standard plugin interface to a custom script interface, so I appreciate this a lot.

Thanks for this plugin. I can search for a song and select it just fine, but when I pick one it plays a random track - not even in the list of search results!

That's strange. I am on holiday at the moment but will check as soon as I am back. In the mean time, you could try using the previous version 0.1.4 (perhaps I broke something in the latest).

Hmm, it seems to have fixed itself today. I just opened XBMC and did the same search as I did yesterday and it played fine. XBMC seemed to freeze while buffering, but that's not uncommon for my PC.

excellent plugin! I found out your plugin after finding out the script available in the addons didn't actually work.
I only had to fix one thing, that is create a "thumb" folder in the related plugin userdata: without it, all searches failed, since the plugin couldn't save any thumbnail in the non-existing folder.
Apart from that, the only nit I could find was that the player window always says "stream.php" instead of the song being played, but that's just a minor thing.
Thanks for your great work!

Many thanks for your feedback on the plugin.
The "thumb" folder should be created automatically. In fact, I did a quick test on my (Ubuntu) test system and it seemed okay. Also, I couldn't create the "stream.php" problem. Are you using the latest version (0.1.5)? Which OS?

This dosn't work for me. Installs fine, i can configure it with my username but fails to open.
I attached the xbmc.log, if you need a full debug log just say the word.

Please see the post at:
It is the same problem.
Depends on Moovida which is the cause of the problem - vodamaxe - 2011-01-08 02:06
All Grooveshark Plugins/scripts seem to use MOOVIDA to actually access the API /get a session ID. The Moovida URL is down, which at the moment makes both, the SCRIPT by Solver and the Plugin by Denhams fail.
I have the same effect here HTTP 404 for http://www.moovida.com/services/grooveshark/session_start - an URL called inside the plugin. That URL does not work anymore.
Sorry, I didnt see the last post from denhams - so he already replied to what the problem is. sorry for the duplication - but somehow it is not so easy to actually delte a post once posted ...
hi denhams - Cool_bombom - 2011-01-10 12:59
check you PM.
There's hope - solver - 2011-01-10 17:44

@Denhams: I wasn't aware of this project until yesterday and I was actually thinking about developing a plugin version of the addon. How about we pool our resources at some point? I'll do my best to make the new API backwards compatible but expect some changes.
- denhams - 2011-01-10 17:54
I will send you a PM to arrange about pooling resources.
