Hi,

Mediastream Redux is my favourite kin so I'm glad it has been update for gotham, unfortunately when I try to install it from the zip file, I get the message that 'Add-on does not have the correct structure' Any ideas what's going wrong for me?

Thanks,

Mike

I had the same problem until I deleted _MACOSX folder in ZIP file. You should only have skin.mediastream_redux folder (and subfolders within) in your zip file.

And huge thanks to SirLoinOfBeef for the skin update. Absolutely my favorite XBMC skin ever.

Thanks for the help....Not the brightest bulb for computer smarts, but dangerous enough with my limited knowledge.

Hi,

I have just installed Kodi 14.0 RC3 (on a MacMini with OSX 10.8.5) and added Mediastream Redux (3.0.0), but it has at least one bug - the configuration/settings menu is empty
any idea why, is there a fix?

Thanx in advance for any reply

Regards

PS: Other OSX versions (Mavericks, Yosemite) have the same issue

Hi - I love mediastream-redux as well. And - thanks for all the hard work. I have been working with XBMC for 6 years - so I know about the commitment you have made. I would just like to make one comment though - I think there may be a couple of problems with 3.0.0 as posted.

The issue mentioned above regarding the .zip file directory structure - a simple solution is to unzip the file manually and copy the skin.mediastream-redux directory to the /usr/share/kodi/ddons directory - and restart KODI. This will yeild a functioning skin that you can switch to in the settings area.

There does appear to be a larger problem - one for which I do not have a pact solution and which will likely require input/assistance from the author. Once in the skin, the secondary menus are blank. Also - after you setup a source, you cannot pick a scraper. the drop downs are blank. (the secondary menus are from a right mouse click over a source (for instance) that would allow you to edit the source - or get to party mode - those menus)

Can you help us SirLoinofBeef?
thanks!

Hi there,

For me, Mediastream Redux also is the best skin ever. I cannot even imagine running XBMC/Kodi without it. Confluence is OK, but all the other skins simply are too much of a fuss for me. I simply love Mediastream Redux' simplicity and style.

I equally noticed the bug in the context menus and I would be extremely happy if ths was fixed.

So please, SirLoinofBeef, let us have your help!
