Thank you - not to be greedy but...

Is is possible to do the same for NOVA?

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/programs/

Are the other PBS online videos a possibility also?

Thanks again for 1) Excellent Plug-In 2) Speed of response!

Thx, I would like to add NOVA but the videos feeds are in Quicktime and mss streams (Windows Media). I wasn't able to get the direct link to the Quicktime feed but I was able to get the direct link to the mss stream. The problem is, XBMC is having problems playing mss streams. No see here. Once that is fixed, I will add NOVA.

This is SO great! ...Any chance we might get a "play all sections of an episode sequentially" option in the plugin options? :-)

I wanted to do this but I didn't know how to. I'm sure it's possible. I'll look into it when I have more free time.

This is a great plug-in,

I have just had problems with the latest video available on the PBS website, I can see and read about all the parts, the thumb-nails show up correctly but when I try and load the video nothing happens,

I am using Linux (ubuntu 64bit)

Cheers,

It looks like PBS updated their website and the urls to some of the video files changed. Stare

On top of that, I was in the process of combining all the PBS shows (Frontline, NOVA, Nature, etc.) to one plugin. Just give me some time.

Hey Lewis, I answered your Cartoon Network question earlier... Navi-X has ALL PBS Episodes as well! In fact, here are the network podcasts Navi-X offers... Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, Funimation, HBO and Nova Science.

I ask that anyone thinking about making a plugin or script for a TV network, please check Navi-X first because we are rapidly working on adding TV networks, streaming movies and music as we speak.

I'd hate for someone to spend a whole lot of time on a plugin when the content has already been added and more can be added in seconds to Navi-X!

I love the script, and no i'm not interested in navi-x. But would be nice to get a working update.

Sorry guys, I've been busy with midterms and I've been out of town. The Frontline site and other pbs sites recently updated and its very time consuming coming up with a plugin to work for each site layout. I should have the Frontline plugin ready by Wednesday.
