Hi,

I created a video plugin for Germanys biggest video portal http://www.MyVideo.de. It should also work from Austria and Switzerland.

[Image: icon.png]

Because of a closed beta testing period it is now stable enough for releasing it here (thanks to the german xbmc board http://www.xbmcnerds.com for testing).

Summary
  • Access to nearly all tv-shows from the German Broadcasters ProSieben, Sat1, Kabel1 and sixx (sometimes only the most recent episodes plus a few clips but sometimes all episodes)
  • Some old classic tv-shows (Parker Lewis, Flash Gordon, Bonanza...)
  • Much music-videos
A few numbers (March 2011):
  • 3.608.549 videos (without movies, tv-shows and music-videos) sorted in 28 categories
  • 504 Movies (Mostly B- or even C-Movies)
  • 194 tv-shows
  • 38.804 music-videos
Structure

Full structure is visible here: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=W2Xdj2tH

Known issues
There is an issue with some music videos (maybe 5%) which start playback but playback will abort between 50% and 90% playtime. This is due an issue with the (2.4) librtmp.

If you found any issue feel free to open an issue on my github page, reply here or write me an email.
If you do so please send me a link to your xbmc.log (debug not needed).

Its much more then regex-magic *g*

You can have a look to the sourcecode of the Addon on github, Line 132 - 203.

If you just want to see the rtmpdump paramters just go to L132 and change "console_debug=False" to "console_debug=True".
Then, after you played the video you want to download, it will print the full rtmpdump command to the xbmc.log, just search for "rtmpdump".

It was very hard (and took a month) to find the correct way for building the rtmp parameters, they are rc4-crypted in a hidden .xml file.

Looks like a great addon. Does anybody know if this site geo blocks? I'm trying from the US and all I get thru xbmc are ads with the hoff. (which cracks me up.. 'du willst gaense haut'.. ha!)
anyway, if I try from a browser, it sits at 95% loaded but won't go any further.. I'm currently at work (shhhh don't tell) so network connection or speed are not the issue.. bandwidth to spare here)

Yes, the site is using geoblocking. I guess it is unusable from outside germany.

yea.. sorry for the question. the site finally came up with a message that it's not available... fuer rechtlichen gruenden.. damn! this would have gotten me some big time points with SWMBO.

at the same time, hundreds of ads with the hoff might be worthwhile too ;-)
