This is awesome! Big Grin

I've been hoping to see a plugin for this site!

I just tested it, and it seems to be working perfectly!

Thank you so much for sharing this, Averre!

Keep up the great job! Smile

New version out, 1.1.0

Changes
  • Added "User Submissions" category.

Update
  • XBMC should automatically update the add-on, but if it doesn't, force update through System settings/Add-ons.

Tested on:
Linux Mint/64bit - XBMC PRE-11.0
Windows XP/32bit - XBMC 10.1

Any possibility that this plugin might get updated to work with the changes done to the Retroware.tv-site?

Most of the videos aren't visible in the plugin... :/

There are some issues I'm finding on this add-on. (dethfeet's v2). Nothing seems to populate in Latest Videos. In archive, Boomstick Review and Jam Enslaver seem to error out the add-on. Does anyone else find any issues? Thanks again for this great add-on!

Hi,

I've created a new version of the plugin you can find it at:
https://github.com/dethfeet/plugin.video.../downloads

I have also bumped the version number to 1.1.1 as I rewrote a lot of code.

@Averre are you still interested in maintaining the addon? Otherwise I would take over and submit it to the official xbmc addon repository.

Thanks a lot for this dethfeet. I noticed though the shows section seems incomplete, I noticed The Video Game Years show is not showing, any way to fix this? The url for the show is http://retrowaretv.com/the-video-game-years/

And again, thank you for your work on the add-on!!!

I've totally missed that. You can find a new version including the "Video Game Years" on the download page.

Hey dethfeet, I just found a problem playing one of the newer files posted from retroware tv, gives a script failed on bliptv plugin, I can't post a log right now because I'm not at home, but I'm sure you can reproduce the problem, either go to latest videos or The Video Game Years on shows, then try to play "The Video Game Years – 1979 Part 1", the url is http://retrowaretv.com/the-video-game-ye...79-part-1/ , they must had changed something, since the 1978 videos play without issues?

Thanks for looking into it Wink

Thanks for noticing. This bug is related to the blip.tv plugin. I will collect the relevant information and send it to the author of the blip.tv plugin.

@ dethfeet

Thanks for your work on this. I hope Averre is still around to confirm if he'd like to turnover the repository.
