For those of you who miss veetle I being just using couch surfer and all you have to do is type in veetle entertainment and log in and all the movies will show up just fine just like the plug in I don't think this is
A solution but I think we can just use it like that for now untill we can get a fix or an update

That worked in windows from post #216! Now if we can make it happen for XBMCbuntu or any other linux that would be fantastic! One of my favorite addons.

For you x86 hackers out there, a hex search in your avformat binary for '80 38 46' or '80 3A 46' is highly likely to locate the relevant object code. The source code
"if (d[0] == 'F' && d[1] == 'L' && d[2] == 'V' && d[3] < 5 ..."
will typically give you something like
Code:
    cmpb 046,(reg)
    jnz FAIL
    cmpb 04C,1(reg)
    jnz FAIL
    cmpb 056,2(reg)
    jnz FAIL
    cmpb 4,3(reg)
I changed my files (gen1 AppleTV and Xbox) to the equivalent of
"if ( (d[0] == 'F' || d[0] == 'G' || d[0] == 'H') && d[3] < 5 ..."
(12 byte patch) though other approaches are equally possible
Code:
    cmpb 046,(reg)
    jz OK
    cmpb 047,(reg)
    jz OK
    cmpb 048,(reg)
    jz OK
    jnz FAIL
OK: cmpb 4,3(reg)

This approach will work for any x86 (Linux, OSX, Windows, Xbox) binary without needing a build environment, and can be quickly changed or reapplied as needed. Happy hacking!!

PS - patched file from my XBMC 10.1 Gen1 Apple TV - UAYOR!! Goes in:
/Applications/XBMC.app/Contents/Resources/XBMC/system/players/dvdplayer
Attached File(s)
.zip  avformat-52-ATV-OSX.zip (Size: 299.46 KB / Downloads: 126)

For Xbox, as requested. Both 52 and 53, "full" version dll's
(original dll's not built with XDK, so should be ok to post here).
goes in: /Apps/XBMC/system/players/dvdplayer/full

Easiest update is to put zip file on an accessible machine (e.g. your media server) and use xbmc's built-in file manager to save a backup copy of the original and then overwrite original with the update from the zip. (same for ATV above).

'always mount a scratch monkey'
Attached File(s)
.zip  avformat-52&53-Xbox.zip (Size: 700.82 KB / Downloads: 129)

PS - In case it isn't obvious, same binary patch can be used to restore x86 vlc, too

(2012-08-29 00:39)netimports Wrote:  thanks for the info plugh, managed to recompile the dll to recognize the GGG:

avformat-52.dll

[Updated] updated dll to recognize both GGG and FLV, make sure you backup the old dll in case you need to revert.

UAYOR!

Instructions:

1. Shutdown xbmc, Download the dll from the above link
2. Find your xbmc folder and navigate to the dvdplayer folder e.g. Program Files (x86)\XBMC\system\players\dvdplayer) or Program Files\XBMC\system\players\dvdplayer
3. Rename avformat-52.dll to avformat-52.dll.bak
4. Copy the downloaded dll into that folder
5. Start xbmc

After the file replacement the videos will start playing again.
p.s. this was tested on windows / xbmc 11.0

awesome! Thanks so much.

By the way, how to navigate to categories like on the website? I am a bit new to the plug-in.

I cant seem to download the fix post#216, it downloads as a program because of windows, could anyone send it to me in a zip file by any chance?

Edit: Managed to get it as a file instead of a program, worked like a charm, thank you!!!!!

Just noticed in the browser veetle won't let the videos play until you first login, the xbmc add-on needs to incorporate the login for the videos to play, that's why they're not playing. Please fix.
