Post: #1

Streaming 480p, 720p, 1080p or any of the lower res VP6 videos all play great on my ASRock Ion 330 running Ubuntu. It even offloads the H264 HD video to the gpu. mmmmm taste like candy

Changelist:
-added: Proxy support for international users. thanks lkraav
-added: 1080p streaming - thanks mrthundercleese
-added: Settings for Default HD Quality 480p or 720p
-added: Download options for clips streamed over http.
-added: Setting for High Res or Low Res thumbs
-added: Categories for HD videos added.
-added: Episode Information added.

To do:
Bug fixes right now
??

These shows and show names are taken from the site so when it is updated it works with new shows. Here are the current lists.

Some shows have episodes or just clips. they add new episodes of shows all the time so just browse.

Please Post Feedback.

I am very open to new ideas so if you want an option for something let me know

XBMCG33K: NBC isn't really needed because their shows are on hulu. take a look at the excellent hulu plugin. hulu is mainly fox/nbc. what is really missing is abc.

I was looking into doing abc streaming but their move media player is annoying. i started disasming their little blackbox dll component in IDA Pro but it uses a packing technique that i haven't got around to cracking yet.

TheBurner: i was working on HD support but ran into some problems with the xbox python. i am trying to solve the problem now. my code runs correctly in IDLE but xbox gives me an error. once i find the problem i will submit a bug report.

I am working on a few other plugins right now so i will try to iron out a better version of this in the next week or so.

Edit:

I have to say though i haven't done much programming since my high school pascal classes. I am much better at cracking ,hacking, disasming code then i am programming it. So any suggested fixes or patches i more then welcome.

Also a huge thanks to Voinage and his tutorial. It made creating this thing much easier and less intimidating.
