I also haven't seen the issues described when 'files do not exist', so it would be good to narrow down what it is.

Cheers, Jav

Hi Jav, thanks for the clarification

I had assumed this was an old issue - the correct way of doing overlay has been documented in the wiki (using the cached overlay information - enabled in settings).

The way shown in that post would be a bit overkill - doing multiple requests per page of programs - it is just not practical - which is why I have provided the "overlay method detailed in the wiki:

Edit:

@malosasha:
I do want to make it very clear - the way that you are trying to call videoextras is not suppoorted - the interface you are using is not designed to do what you are trying to do - please do not use it in this manner! If you would like overlay imaged, please use the method provided - I've done lots of work on getting this working, so you should use the method provided, and not butcher a different interface.

if so is it possible to add a small patch to the addon to not hang when a file is not available especially on nfs/smb shares ?

Not sure what the problem you are reporting is.

I don't recall anyone reporting any hanging issues, not seen any logs etc either

Rob

when one enable the mentionned pr (https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/4482) and modify the skin to use list onitemchanged to display an extra flag, if the file do not exists , the callback never finish..

i guess that by default you assume that the file exists

As I mentioned in this post:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1680023

This should NOT be done!

please cancel that modification request. (At least the skin change that calls videoextras - the mechanism itself is OK if video extras is not involved)
