Thumbs Up  [RELEASE] HockeyStreams Plugin (Streams Live Ice-Hockey Games from HockeyStreams.com)
Post: #1
Newest Downloads:
November 19th, 2009 - Version 1.3.0 is available in the XBMC-Addons SVN. Note that 1.3.0 does not have RSS Archive support. The next revision will. Continue using the link below for RSS Archive support.

RSS Archives [Testing] - November 18th, 2009 - Added RSS Archive support which allows for easier archive access. Install this as a separate plugin, in order to keep the working v1.2.0b install untouched. The plugin is available on SVN and the downloads page. Report back to this thread with any errors or successful installs. I will release this in the XBMC-Addons SVN as soon as testing is complete.

v1.2.0b - May 10th, 2009 - Live and Archived Streams! Please use v1.2.0a or higher! Now, IP Exception is generated daily, no need to log in to the site with a browser anymore!

Hi, recently I posted about a HockeyStreams script at http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=49230.

Now I have created a plugin which is available at http://code.google.com/p/hockeystreams. Unfortunately, you need to update an IP Exception through the site as you would normally. This plugin does not have an IP exception feature in the first release. The next release will include the feature. The plugin will replace the script, as there will be a 'final' script release. Then all efforts will be put into improving the plugin.

Steps to create an IP Exception:
1.) log into hockeystreams.com in your web browser.
2.) click the game you want to watch.
3.) the pages that opens up will have "IP Exception" above the game window.
4.) that will open up a form, click "Add Exception" and you have successfully updated your excetion.

An IP exception allows the user to watch the games on an outside client such as vlc or XBMC, this is necessary each day you want to watch video outside of the site.

Note! You need to have premium account and login to watch any live stream. The HockeyStreams.com site is not free, although my script is. If you want to sign up to get an account you could use my referral link here http://www.hockeystreams.com/register/hfan88 or sign up normally at http://hockeystreams.com

I think mlb.tv is rtmp, so it may be harder to develop. I will check out the thread and see if I can help!

Is this still working? If so, I don't think I'm using it correctly. I'm a new XBMC user and this is my first plugin install. I've got the plugin showing up in the Video Plugins 'directory' but when I try to open it it gives me an error in default.py.

Any advice or more explicit install instructions I might need would help me a lot.

Thanks

You have an account with the hockeystreams website and have entered that information in the plugin settings, and you've done the ip exception thing mentioned in the first post?

I hadn't set the plugin setting up... You'll have to forgive me, I'm new to XBMC (Using my brother's box).

I have it logging in and looking at archive games but when I try to play them it just hangs... Haven't tried with anything live yet since the next live event is few days away.

" An IP exception allows the user to watch the games on an outside client such as vlc or XBMC, this is necessary each day you want to watch video outside of the site. "


so i need to do this exception EVERY f'ing day i wanna watch a game ? I was gonna subscribe to the site for my hockey fix only because of your script but if site owners are this dense.... i hope i'm wrong , otherwise im going with ESPN360.

script sounds promising but if site is as limited ( not your fault obviously ) site is not worthy of my time/money.

You aware of fact, that with ESPN360 you will be able to watch streams only in their flash player?
This exceptions, you don't like, give a chance to see their streams outside of browser. For example in XBMC.

the plugin creates an ip exception for you automatically.

the site is not limited like you think, i have two plugins for it, one being this and two being a conky config script.
hockeystreams is clearly the better choice. Big Grin

I'm getting an error before the plugin has a chance to start.

Would love to see this working. Let me know if you need any help.

Cheers!

nevermind... i neglected to set the login settings.
Guess i was expecting to see that inside the plugin as with the old script.


Perhaps there is a way to fail login more gracefully?

OK , thanks for clarification. I'll give it a try sometime in december, 12 months sub (100 bucks ) is little too rich for my blood. ( that way 6 month sub will last till end of the play offs (may/june) ).

This offseason Hockeystreams basically paid for itself by showing the UFC events. If you buy any UFC PPV, 12 months is the way to go.
