Post: #1
I know by searching this forum
there was in the past a CNN script on xbmcscript.com
but that isn't working any more.
Can someone please make a script/plugin for CNN.

in the addons svn, you can use the svn installer.

if you feel like contributing. it could use some category thumbnails. eg i included one for world.

There's a good, stable stream from CNN.com included in the excellent Infinity TV script. I watched all the presidential debates on it Smile

how did i missed that:o
thumbnails that's something i can do.and when i have some
what i have to do than with the thumbnails?

also CNN plugin doesn't have the search option.
CNN.com podcast would also be great in my opinion in the plugin.
Now i watch the podcast with Navi-X script.
And the defauft player is mplayer but i noticed dvdplayer would be better.
you can than go forward and backwards in stream.
and can the live stream be in the plugin

I don't know anything about the CNN plugin, but Zero is usually mapped to queue item so you can queue everything quickly.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search and search the forum before posting.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please read how to submit a proper bug report.

Well guys guess what?? I've always wondered how to get that thing to work!
It seems like you guys might actually be able to help me out.

So what I usually do, I user the "Queue item" feature and expect it be played after the video I'm currently viewing is finished but this never happens.

Reading this thread it seems it seems like the video is added to some video playlist somewhere that I need to find and start, is that it?

How do I do that?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm having a problem with the CNN Video Plugin. I have two computers one is installed with the formal XMMC version of December 2009 and the other one is installed with the latest build. Neither one can play the CNN video plugin, although they can display the latest videos available and the thumbnail pictures.
Does any one have the same problem and know how to resolve this?

Followed is the debug log:

poker-ft

There are several types of poker. This is not about policies and types of games as such, but about those places where you can play poker. The first and traditional way - to come to the club, the second - turn on the computer, go to the network and play online casino. The third - to come to a gaming arcade, and there be a time goodforum
player. What differences there are in these ways to play, because the basis of approximately one - poker. But in the first and second cases, the game is played between the player and other people, sitting at the poker table, real or virtual. And in the third opponent of the player supports the casino or game room. Another difference between these saleve poker
of playing that the existence of good strategies can significantly advance you in poker, while all the complicated mathematical calculations fade to artificial intelligence - the computer adjusts to the casino game, once remarked to use some strategy. That's what accounts for loss-making games in a casino - in the long run, it lasts for a significant decrease in swisspoker
balance of the player. In the so-called poker rooms (clubs) have no interest in stack the cards. Either way, he gets the rake - a small profit from each winning, it is known in advance, and removes all the questions. As you know, poker, unlike many casino games, where almost everything depends on the will of the case, is a game primarily intellectual. In this regard, in Russia this game is registered as a sport. There is no ideal strategy in poker - the game is always a clear correlation with the mood of the players, new opportunities or, conversely, constraints. Playing at a poker table in the club - an opportunity to practice how to brain and nerves. The player who would be cool, aggressive and smarter than others. On the luck in this sport is given not so much. But in the online casino you can choose the game, when everything will happen on a given circuit, and the computer itself will make for you some action in accordance with the chosen

. However pleasant idleness is useless - as already mentioned, the computer instantly see through your strategy and ultimately all that can go away, go into the casino. Another important difference between online casino and poker room on the machines is a special atmosphere of the game. Remember the "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". In this film illustrates the intense and electrified the atmosphere in which there are all the players, an intrigue hangs in the air, and someone who can bluff with a calm face, the one who is willing to risk, to improve their combination goes into winners. That's for the sake of the atmosphere is equally fun to play and the club, and casino, while the machines - just a substitute, a surrogate of these emotions, derived from poker. Poker room - perfect place to display their abilities as a player. Especially if you pre-spend some time studying the rules and strategies of poker. To do this, there are a lot of literature, including the virtual. Many of the recognized players often share their experiences and strategies in the books, so it is worthteam-forum
