I've configured this to be a Canadian User in the UI, but none of the movies or tv shows worked (netflix saying "sorry, this movie not available at this time"). I edited the file plugin.video.xbmcflicks\settings.xml and set caUser to 1 (which it wasn't), and still, nothing I chose is available.

I tried reinstalling the plugin, no dice. I tried deleting all the HTML files that the plugin fetches, no dice.

No idea what I can do now...

After doing some googling around, I've noticed that netflix API doesn't have canadian support...

lame...

hey, did you get any further regarding your request ?

I'm basically experiencing the same behavior, and I 'm more or less asking myself whether this is maybe the expected behavior ? I cannot find any doc that confirms or denies this..
When viewing, a new (Chrome, in my case) window opens to play the content..but this messes up the controls.

I was using Boxee before - only for their Netflix plugin... It works very well within Boxee ...
For all the rest I use XBMC, therefor I was happy to discover this plugin. However it doesn't act at all I hoped...

...someday

The window needs to have focus. In Eventghost, when it is activated, set it to focus the window.


Got it working.... BUT questions!! - d1ddyp0p - 2011-03-11 13:14

It works, piece of cake. I just want to know what the args are I can use to

A. Start it in full screen mode?
B. Hide my mouse (assuming this might not be needed if it started in full screen mode)
C. Close out of the Netflix Window using my remote (which is the official one for android)


I assume I could use Gmote or something similar to use my mouse....however, I don't want a keyboard mouse hooked up to the htpc in my living room so if it IS possible to do this, any help appreciated.


EDIT: Nevermind..... pressing stop closes netflix just fine. Any idea on an arg I can use for full screen? +F? and if so, insert it where? in where the 'p' is?

It's easy to make a wrapper assuming you can program well. Basically, go on to MSDN and they will explain the premise. It is basically a shell or a skin which will use the IE libraries. So, you can remove EVERYTHING and just use IE's libraries so you're able to play... It would be lovely if they could build this into XBMC, so in a sense, a window in XBMC was the wrapper and that way it would work in Windows Seamless...


For Linux, it would be possible to support silverlight... however, maybe not.

using an open source virtualization.....

Has anyone gotten movie thumbnails to work using Aeon MQ2? I can play movies no problem and everything else works, I just get no thumbnails.

Thanks

guessing still no linux support? Smile

hi, i am curious because i have an lg blu-ray player that runs busybox linux. in order for netflix to run on it i had to go to my account settings on netflix's website and enter in some activation code for the blu-ray player. since you are knowledgeable in this, is there something similar that can be done with this add-on ?


I love this addon thank you - Pure3picshot - 2011-03-16 21:40

thank you for the time in making this addon work. I have a quick question on Dharma v10.1 and Aeon MQ 2 v2.7.1 rev 103 and the newest XBMC Flicks, but last night when using the IE wrapper it prompted me to login and then my shortcut to fullscreen doesn't work and the shortcut to close window doesn't work. Did this change in XBMC flicks or something within Dharma and or the skin. I will keep trying to hack at it, but any help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advace


- eblade - 2011-03-17 03:28

Hmm. Just curious if anyone's tried to run IE7 or IE8 in wine along with the Windows Silverlight? not that I have the hardware to spare to try a Linux install, just spouting an idea..


TV Shows - samzstein - 2011-03-18 06:09

for some reason beyond my understanding tonight xbmc flicks has started acting very weird with TV shows. first off it will only pull 99 titles from the que even though i have many more in the list (does not do this with movies) and when i try to get a list of episodes for a particular season or show the majority of them come up empty. only a handful of them function correctly.


- mojo6911 - 2011-03-19 01:11

I have a problem with my Instant Queue. I have a number of TV shows and they show up fine. When I browse to play an episode, it is just empty and there is no episode list. Any help?


- fekker - 2011-03-19 05:37

Linux: Not possible due to DRM restrictions, maybe something that could be done with a virtual os running, but not native to linux. Blame Silverlight's DRM .. 2008 R2 SP1 add's 3d support to Virtual OS's, could get creative with RDP to a virtual OS app (think citrix metaframe app), but unlikely to be used as R2 is a server level (and pricey) os.

No thumbnails: go into the settings and change the size, close the dialog, you then can go back and pick whatever size you wanted.

OSX: should work just like playback in the browser, maybe try firefox?

Errors under 10.1 -- untested, need a full log with the plugin in debug mode (go into the plugin settings and put it in debug mode)

No changes have been made to the wrapper, it's a very basic windows form with a browser control on it.

TV Shows - if it isn't showing the episodes, put it in debug (the plugin that is) and post the log for inspection, also try turning on the auto-expand episode option in the plugin settings as it does the episodes different, post results please
