Has anyone noticed a problem with scraping from Netflix through Playon?

been getting the following error:

Code:
07/02/2014 02:39:51 PM WARN    Archiving        Title cannot be found, it was expected to be found after one of [ - , : , :, -,  : ,  -- , .] in the file label "S04E02 Migration, Beakmania & Living Space"

Recently Netflix has started to separate episodes into Season folders and lopping off the title of the series from the filename and also removing the "dash" ( - ) from season/episode numbering the the title of the episode. I believe this is the problem. any ideas?

I was going to try and look into this, but im struggling to get the head of the trunk to build. I seem to be missing some code, and there is a number of "shared libraries" that I do not know where the source is for. Im hoping to get some feedback from the owner.

Are you looking to just use it, or make code changes and build a custom version? If the former, you don't have to compile it yourself. There is a link in the instructions somewhere for a pre-compiled version.

Sorry for the confusion, I was replying to the post above my last one. My plan was to make changes to the code to try and figure out why wierd things are happening when parsing netflix streams. The problem is that is seems like the last check in does not build (it seems the author updated the libraries but not the source) and the build before that works, but is unable to talk to the latest version of xbmc.

I was hoping to see if anyone has pulled the code and got it working, or if there is a copy of the latest code that was never checked in.

Hi,

This forum has been awesome in getting my XBMC set-up working with HULU and Netflix through Playon and MyLibrary but I'm having trouble getting the Music Videos feature to work.

I have tried the below (a cut down version of my full Config.xml) but with no luck. I have a source set up directly to Playon called Playon, and one to MTV called MTV.

I end up with only one .strm file in the Music Video folder..?

Does anyone have this successfully working?

Also, does anyone have an easy method of excluding particular genres from the Library or through MyLibrary script? I don't want any Animation or Kids movies or TV shows and would rather not have to individually exclude them. I've attempted to make smart playlists with only specific genres but i cannot figure out a way through the Aeon Nox skin of then flattening the library structure, as by default I end up with the Genre view which doesn't suit my purpose. Preferably id do this through the smart playlist feature as this would allow me to do other things but that genre view ruins it for me.

Cheers
Alex

Regarding the code -- I'll try to check in a stable version with related libraries sometime in the near future.
This project has dropped low on my priority list so I haven't exactly been keeping it nice an tidy.

Yes, Netflix thru playon changed the format in which tehy list episodes, but the default parsing takes over and seems to work in my case.

XBMC.MyLibrary (add anything to the library)
ForTheLibrary (Argus TV & XBMC Library PVR Integration)
SageTV & XBMC PVR Integration

Ive noticed that default parsing may sort of work, but if there is multipart episodes it will use the season/episode number to do the match rather than the title. This can cause havoc on the rest of the season being "off by one".
