Hi guys,

I've been having problems with some streaming video plugins, especially the Crunchyroll and TVShack plugins. It plays fine but later it always just stops out of nowhere.Buffer is always at a high enough percentage, but it just stops playing.

I'm using the newest XBMC build.

Is this just me?

Yeah I'm using the latest Voinage scripts, but for some reason videos from crunchy and tv-shack just stop suddenly in the middle of a video.

Could it be a conflict with the latest XBMC Build?

Muscles, that isn`t needed for those plugins.

If you are using a wireless connection to your pc then sharing your net connection to the xbox - make sure that the connection isn`t dropping.

Even a 1 second loss of connection will cause the stream to break.

I was considering that too, but when I stream videos from my computer, they play fine - the whole 40-50 minutes. They seem to only stop when streaming online.

Does the connectivity not affect LAN streams? I've also messed around with increasing the cache size in system settings for internet videos, could this be also a problem?
