Hi

I am working on an image plugin on Eden, all the day I failed to install the plugin.

The xbmc.log read:
ERROR: Could not read addon description of plugin.image.coviewer

any kindly advice?

The source is here:
http://coviewer-xbmc-plugin.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

I sniffed the tcp connection, the xbmc did retrieve the files but it keeps to complain about the description.

Thanks in advance.

extension point="xbmc.python.pluginscript" is not valid.

for plugins, use "xbmc.python.pluginsource"
for scripts: "xbmc.python.script"
