When I go back to the plugin to check the config, the network pre-roll is selected again. I de-selected it and pressed OK to save but it does not seem to save the settings. Can't get any major network shows to play except for the network pre-roll.
This is on an ATV2 with all the latest versions. Appreciate any help...
I have the same problem running XBMC 11.0 and Hulu plugin 3.4.5, on Windows 7 AND on Linux! I've tried turning network pre-roll and commercial breaks off, I've tried turning them on, I've tried changing the number of commercials in each, every configuration I can think of, and it never will play an actual video. It only ever plays the commercials. Unless I set the number of pre-roll commercials, post commercials and commercial breaks all to zero, in which case it doesn't play anything at all. It just goes right back to the menu.
Hey....I figured this out finally....
This is what worked for me:
In my ATV2:
1: in /private/ver/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/addon_data check the date on the plugin.video.hulu settings.xml file. For some reason mine was dated back to Jan 2012.
2: Delete the settings.xml in the plugin.video.hulu folder
3: Go back into the HULU Configuration and select default or any settings needed and save (OK)
4: Try playing network videos. I had success.
The settings file now displays the current date of when I changed the config and also saves any changes. I hope this helps anyone with an ATV2 and is having the same issue. Super happy all works well now.
