Hi,
just a small addon for watching videos from "America's Finest News Source" The Onion.

You can install it from the xbmc.org eden repo!
Any feedback is welcome...

Have fun Smile

I'm so glad to see a native Onion plugin again. In my mind it's a XBMC staple. This is going to sound nuts, but it's what attracted me to XBMC. Having The Onion in my living room blew my mind and then I wanted all my media on the big screen. Since the old one broke, I've been using the RSS feed as a video source. Your plugin is way better. Thanks!

Why wouldn't you just subscribe to them on youtube? Does this add-on have additional content?

YouTube doesn't get the content as fast. This plugin also lets you browse by Onion show category.

The Onion completely changed the site. Looks like they went with a simpler video player.


The add-on was a million times better. Until it gets sorted, you can add their video RSS feed as a video source. The add-on had much more content.
