Awesome! Can you put this in the SVN Repo so we can use it through the installer?

Nice work.

@nixa
See here how to create your own repo.xml entry in SVN Repo Installer and that would allow people to download and install directly from XBMC.

thanks for the feedbacks.

If there is no major problems with the plugin, I will submit to the repo soon. For the time being, go to my link.

OTR, there is a video plugin of 66stage.com which i revived to work with its impressive list of documentaries videos (1000+). For those who loves docs videos.

if the video is not pulling from ytube or google, ur out of luck spiff. Technically any video source can be supported but perhaps consistency is a pre-requisite to pursue further. Btw, which doc are you interested with?

uhm, i can't recall any specifics up front, but my guesstimate is that maybe 15-20% won't work (empty listings). shouldn't be hard to find one which does that.
