qwertytical Wrote:Anyone encounter the Blue Screen of Death using Ice Films, been running XBMC for months, just installed Ice Films a week ago and now the problem is occurring with XBMC only while using ice films. I am running a Revo R1600. I have a MU premium account and the metadata enabled on ice films, using very new Nvidia display driver - tested without antivirus s/w installed - so antivirus is not the problem. My system is running Win7 32-bit with just XBMC and Firefox installed.
You probably have a memory issue. XBMC on top of Win 7 is super taxing on something as weak as a revo. couple that with high res folder images (which sometimes crash my ATV2) and you probably get memory dumps.
How much RAM do you have now?
My icefilms plugin mod - westcoast13 - 2011-03-08 16:44
Hello to everyone, and first of all a big thanks to anarchi for the best plugin for the best media center.
Because I liked this plugin very much, I started looking at the code just to fix a few bugs & things that didn't work for me very well. I had no idea of python at the beginning, so I just did this for fun, but when anarchi said that he would not develop this any more, I tried to add all these things that I would like in the plugin.
I finally made a version that I think it has almost everything that i wanted :
This version works fine for me (tested on 2 pc's), maybe it is a bit slow for some but if you are brave and you know a few things about xbmc paths and where to install these files (no auto install) you can try it and tell me. That's why I have made this in the development thread, because the basic users might be confused of what to do. If anarchi thinks that he can use my code or a part of it he is free to do it, I'll try to help him as much as I can, because I'd like this plugin to stay alive.
You can download my mod from here : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Z0XAVKCU
This mod is based on version 1.0.1, so if this version didn't work for you don't try it. Also this version might work with metadata, even if you have disabled it from the addon settings (basically because that's the only way I use it, so I might have skip some checks for it) and i am almost sure that it wont work on ATV, never used one, so i have no idea what to check for.

Awesome, I can't wait to try it out. Anarch mentioned that he went the meta container route because pulling the meta each time the folders loaded would cause alot of stress on their servers resulting on alot of IP bans for plugin users. He wrote the code to get it from the ice mirror page.
Edit: Installed. Looks good so far! Thanks

Nice work wescoast13! Working great so far!

One thing I have noticed so far is that the cover art does not appear when going to homepage, recently added, latest releases, and being watched now. The movie covers work there.
Also, no cover art in search results.
- westcoast13 - 2011-03-08 22:39
I don't use the homepage, so I have never looked at it, but I will fix it in search results for sure, the only problem is that there might be anything in the results (episode, movie or tv show), maybe we need a separate search.
Yes, I think its better this way, I don't read anything else from the icefilms site, all the meta stored in the db. Try it and let me know what you think. The code is a little messy but its the first time I tried anything in python ..

i haven't properly looked at your patches yet but....
depending on your code, we should be able to merge some of it into the official releases. thanks a lot for sharing!
if your interested in gaining access to the github repo (if you ever want to submit patches), just tell me the name of your github account and i'll add you.

The movie covers work there.when i was coding them, i found it overly difficult to add cover art for search and homepage, because the sources they are scraped from don't supply an imdb id. if the metadata handler was extended to do lookup by name, then it would be possible for everything other than episodes.

I saw the my Icefilms addons was updated today, so I have to re install westcoast's patch. Is there anyway disable auto updating?
- danz0l - 2011-03-09 16:55
westcoast's patch is awesome but it has hardcoded confluence skin look (doesnt save my views) so thats one thing to possibly address ?
Also downloads are still not working for me. Apart from, this plugin is awesome
