<addon id="plugin.video.amazon"
name="Amazon"
version="0.7.2"
provider-name="BlueCop + Romans I XVI">

I'm not able to install to amazon plugin, so I can't change any xml file. When I select the amazon Plugin to install, I get to error, that it is still incompatible.

I think a mirror of the code is on GitHub: Search for amazon xbmc github and you'll see it.

As I write above, I'm not able to install! I have different packages, but with any package I got the error message "incompatible".

One thing you can try is on a different machine -- I did it on Windows even though my XBMC setup is ubuntu is install Frodo -- then install the amazon addon and then copy over all the required folders from that addons/ folder to the addons/ folder on your Gotham box. Then make the updates to the addon.xml file. The chromelauncher addon should install fine from it's normal repo but the other script addons (beautiful soup, etc) can just be copied.

No. It requires the ability to play back amazon video through a browser. Which is not supported on android

actually that is the only way to watch amazon videos on my galaxy-s2 since there is no video feature on the amazon app.

i tired launching youtube-leanback from within the chrome launcher on xbmcbuntu and i get 'error: chrome not found'.

would it make sense for it to run chromium instead since its already installed and lighter ?

edit: fyi: i changed line 163 of ~/.xbmc/addons/plugin.program.chrome.launcher/default.py from
Code:
path = "/usr/bin/google-chrome"^M
to
Code:
path = "/usr/bin/chromium-browser"^M
but the browser takes up only the left half of the screen and i can only control the xbmc menu under it (i have to ssh in and killall chromium-browser to get rid of it.

the amazon addon wont update because it is incompatible.

I can't get this working on Gotham (error saying incomaptible), or on another machine running Frodo (Amazon Database fails to install).

The older version of Amazon Prime Fix also does not work, giving me a "logon failed" error, despite entering a correct login.

Any ideas?

i think i got around the logon failed error by doing an:
Code:
sudo apt-get install python-demjson
but it would still obviousely fail at trying to navigate to something like purchased videos. i think doing:
Code:
sudo apt-get install python-crypto python-mechanize
helped with logging in but i am not really sure how it ties into the add-on.
