I transfered my user info file from my mac to check the playerfactorycore change you suggested. The movies are in my instant queue and now when i try to play a notice window appears and tells me one or more files will not play and to check the log .

it's something in the playercore settings that isn't working quite right, hit me up with a debug log (xbmc and addon in debug)

1 at a time would be just fine with me, example all Movie Actions would work for me as long I could change it to another GENRE if I want to look at another one.
I may be able to get you a much longer list and PM you if I do.

loki131 Wrote:First off amazing app! I absolutely love it! Big Grin

Now I thought I would share some of the info I've found. Currently I have AutoHotKey re-map my remote when Netflix launches so I have play/pause, stop, etc. all working seamlessly and my direct access keys to bring me back in to xbmc (whatever section I want). I'm new to AutoHotKey so I haven't quite figured out how to automatically kick into fullscreen but hopefully tonight I will solve that one!

Anyway here are the Netflix/Silverlight keyboard commands I've found so far so you guys can map them however you want.

Netflix controls

Space – Toggle Play/Pause
Enter – Toggle Play/Pause
PgUp – Play
PgDn – Pause
F – Full-screen
Esc – Exit full-screen
Shift+Left arrow – Rewind
Shift+Right arrow – Fast Forward

In full-screen mode:

Ctrl+space – Frame forward/backward mode. Ctrl+space pauses the movie and enters key frame mode (aka intra-frame or i-frame mode). The right and left arrow keys move between key frames.

The following Ctrl+Shift+Alt+* shortcuts (Ctrl+Shift+Option+* in Mac OS X) toggle information displays on/off when the player is NOT in full-screen mode. The displays will remain on, however, when full-screen mode is activated.

Ctrl+Shift+Alt+M – Menu
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C – Codes; frame rate plus other (unknown to me) info. Also makes other overlays green.
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+D – Display A/V Stats on-screen
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L - Logging window
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+P – Player Info
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S – Stream bit rate and manual rate selection

Hope this helps!


Would you mind sharing the work you have so far for AHK?

Coming in the next rev (1.0.12) is the full genre browsing for instant watch items.
It's the full list (480 different genre's)

I'm working out a few glitches with the tvshow's, I want them to show up as a folder that expands to the episodes, when i wrap that up, i'll up the new revision.


- fekker - 2011-01-12 02:51

Update: it's back up again

FYI: Netflix API is currently down

Looks like they are doing something with the system.

I found a handy link to see if it's up or not

Is it possible to control this app without using event ghost; just with AHK?

monkeysez Wrote:Is it possible to control this app without using event ghost; just with AHK?

Yes, for the most part it is.
the guys on the sagetv forums have a good how to on it.. since it's opening up IE it'll work for this one as well (playback is done in the browser)
http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38969

The next version of silverlight (version 5) will take standard windows media event calls, it's only in closed beta. That change will help a ton with the playback instead of the current 'odd' keys that are used to control the playback.

Two questions. Well, more a question and a possible suggestion.

The question is an issue I've been running into lately. When I launch a video from XBMC, it of course launches into IE, which makes it the only thing I use IE for. It seems that about 90 percent of the time I launch a video, the video plays perfectly for a period of time, but then stops playback due to a slowed connection. The only thing is that it never rebuffers, it just stops. I close out and then reopen it through XBMC and it starts where it left off. Firefox never seems to do this when Im just viewing it on there, no XBMC involvement. I know the design of this plugin was to launch in IE, but is there any reason I can't reconfigure it to launch in Firefox?

Second, and this is just something I thought would be a nice addition if possible, but is there a way to possibly add an HD marker on the items available in HD? I'm using Transparency! and the fanart view for mine, which gives me the usual, but it would be awesome if there was an ability to tell what items are in HD.


WinXP Error Log - jimbob666 - 2011-01-12 16:59

I searched around for the below error and did not see a past post so I am posting now.

I get this error after I try to menus like "Instant Queue: All"

This is after a clean install of XP XBMC and a Zip install of 1.0.12 of Flicks.

Any help would be great and if ore info is needed let me know.

Yes, you can use any browser you like that works on netflix website, just change the path in the playercoresettings.xml to point to firefox and remove the -k from the args.

I pull data from multiple areas, Netflix API (no flag on HD), RSS Feeds (very limited data), and starting with 1.0.12 from the oData source (which will have the flags for HD in there). So the answer is yes and no as some sources that I get the data from don't expose that information. Once I have that data, i need an infolabel to stick it into so XBMC's ui will display it. If you can find the infolabel for it (I'm not sure where it would go), I'll populate it whenever I have the flags in the source data.

Recently Watched field. - ottodawg - 2011-01-14 17:37

Hey Fekker, first off great addon, use it all the time.

One quick question, or request maybe, on the Roku netflix interface there is a "Recently Watched" field. Would their be any way to incorporate that into xbmc flicks?

It's really handy for returning to shows that you haven't finished.

Thanks again.


A little trouble. - MrImSoGreat - 2011-01-14 22:12

Just one problem I'm having....

I edited the xpl files and everything. I also set it up to open in Firefox. But now when I go to play something from XBMXFLICKS, it opens Firefox but only to the Firefox Google start page. I can't get it to redirect to Netflix. Any help.

Might be something to do with me not knowing exactly where to place the .htm file.

Please and thank you.

make sure there's no -k option in the playercorefactory.xml if your using firefox, that flag is for ie only
