I am having some troubles with this plugin. I am unable to watch a show from start to finish correctly. If I leave all the default settings for ads, I can see the queued segments of the show I am trying to watch and the ads in-between those segments. The queue will play out for all intents and purposes successfully without any errors, the only problem is the segments of show themselves do not play completely. These segments appear to be about 5 minutes or so each, yet I only get about 1 minute 30 seconds of show then ads play. As a result I miss over half of the show or movie I am trying to watch as the stream continues on from the NEXT segment even though the previous segment was not completed. As per a recent post in this thread I had tried different combinations of allowed number of preroll, trailing and break ads, turning breaks on and off, turning on and off network preroll and even tried turning all ad counts to 0 with breaks and preroll off. No combination results in successfully watching a show normally. Infact, when I turn all ads to 0 and breaks off and network preroll off all I get is that 1 minute 30 seconds (give or take) or show at the beginning then 5 ads (vs the zero I set) then kicked back to the video/show/movie selection screen. Is anyone at this exact second able to sit and witch a show or movie from Hulu from beginning to end without missing large chunks (about 3 minutes each ad cycle for me)? If so what have you done to accomplish this?
For completeness I am using a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04lts with the latest version of XBMC 11 installed straight from the Ubuntu repository. I received no errors running XBMC and infact had it running other "channels" (addons) all night. I used the addon repository listed in the first post of this thread, I arrived at this thread from http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:Hulu
and after adding the repo I installed the Hulu addon from within XBMC, again, without errors. I am a Hulu Plus member and put my information in the addon and was presented with a message that I successfully logged in. Also I am from the USA
For the most part everything seems to be working perfectly, I wasn't paying much attention to the streams at first as I was doing other things around the house, it wasn't until I sat down and actually started watching a show I realized the show wasn't making a damn bit of sense as I was missing chunks of the show segments
