I just downloaded and setup XBMC for Windows (Version 9.11 I guess it is).

I go into programs >> program plugins >> SVN Repo Installer >> xbmc-addons >> plugins

From there, I can install any of the plugins fine. But as soon as I try to run them, 99% of them return "Script Failed!"

Almost every search I've done for this, people have been saying they get a "Python script failed" error. Mine doesn't say python.. I don't know if they just changed what the error says in a different version or it's a different error altogether.

For example, I went into Video and installed the Family Guy plugin. In the description, it said it was compatible.

Then, from the main menu, I go to video >> video plugins >> family guy

I select a video and immediately I get "ERROR SCRIPT FAILED! : FAMILY GUY"

This happens with every plugin so far besides the apply movie trailers one which came with the install.

This is a copy from the log covering everything that happens when I press enter on the video:

I didn't have python installed at first, but even after installing python 3.1 it does the same thing.

The first instance of a problem seems to be
ERROR: Unable to load: special://home/plugins/video/Family Guy/resources/settings.xml, Line 0
Failed to open file

Any idea why this might be happening?

I'm sorry if this has been answered before.. I'm sure it has. But I am completely failing at finding it.

So far, this has happened with about 6 plugins (none have worked yet)

Any help is appreciated
Thanks,
Jeremy




Edit: Ive tried a couple other plugins for different categories and they seem to work. It's just video I guess...

Edit2: Come on... really? No one has any idea? This can't be the first time this has happened

Edit3: Realized I may have put this thread in the wrong place. Moving to Windows specific help/support.

hi there!

have you seen the sticky at the top of this forum?

it hasn't been updated for a couple of months so can only be a "rough" guide...

the main problem with video plugins is that the original host site will go changing the url's and layouts of their pages, so the plugins fail to work. some are in continuous development and others have fallen by the wayside.

Wow I feel like an idiot. Going to try some of these ones that say "working" and post back.

Except this page kinda contradicts it.
