Hi All,

First post and first request...
So, first of all, many thanks and congratulations for those good job done by XBMC community.

I'm fan of mountain biking and others extrem sports, unfortunaltly at the moment, there is nothing available on XBMC in order to vizualize some.

I would find it very cool to come back home after a hard work day and have easily the possibility to stream some extrem videos!!!

If someone is interrested in developping such kind of script, you should find below 2 french websites that proposes videos :

http://www.zapiks.fr/
http://www.26in.fr/videos/index.php

If someone knows others good adresses, please share!!!

Thanks in advance and best regards!

Fabrice,

Works fine! Thank you

Are you still developping this script or not, do?

If yes, could I suggest you some improvements?

- Like adding sub-categories for "popular / most viewed" - "last add"
- Improvement of previews / thumbnails
- possibility to customize background image for each sport?

I have no knowledge on developping such kind of thing, but I have tryied to do some modifications, for example replace the 'www.zapiks.fr/vtt' by 'www.zapiks.fr/vtt/popular_1'.
But an error appear, it seems not so easy as I was thinking!

If no more motivation to do it, thanks for the files, it's a good beginning!

After actually watching some of the videos from the site, I've decided to do this more justice. There are some really cool videosSmile

I've got thumbnails and pagenation working properly now.
I'll look in to your suggestions. I got a bit of a bug with videos looping that I'm trying to solve.

Cool, one more time, thanks!
It will be a very good script!

On my side I will try to learn how modifying scripts and adapt it for http://www.26in.fr/videos/index.php cause I find the mountain bike videos much better than on zapiks. (but MTB only)

Do you think that your script could be add into the xbmc.org repository?

A+

I just submitted a request to be pulled to the xbmc.org repo.

You can download it here for now http://zapiks-xbmc.googlecode.com/files/...ks.0.2.zip

I still have to look into sorting videos by most-recent... ect.

Thanks for suggesting the addon, I'm enjoying itSmile

Hi!!

Thanks for awesome job, finally I will not perform script for VTTFreeride cause all the videos are available on Zapiks!! This is a great news for me!

Just the view by "most popular / recent / etc..." is missing.

Please hold us informed,

One more time, thanks to Divingmule

Hi, You can set the "sort by" in the addon settings. Hold focus on the addon or one of it's directories, open the context menu 'c' on the keyboard and choose 'addon settings'.
