Thanks a lot for bringing this to us! Been using this for a while and was wondering about one thing. Is it possible to use it to save the stream with the subtitle to the hard drive to view the videos with the subtitles offline? I can save the videos from say Kanal 5 on Dplay.se using video downloaders but not the subtitles.

Not an issue so didn't submit a ticket.

Thank you

Sounds like a bad idea that å potentially could get this addon closed down

You could use video downloaders as before and then let kodi download subtitles when you play the file

Many of the streams are HLS streams, for which external tools are required. If you want the subs that Retrospect uses, they are in the retrospect.log and cached in the Retrospect cache folder in the addon_data/net.rieter.net/cache folder.

I will look into this. Thank you so much!

Hi!

I've updated to Krypton and I'm still having TLS issues with some channels. According to the info on the official site this was supposed to be fixed with Krypton but apparently not. I've seen this kind of issues with outdated Python before, but my understanding was that Krypton would come with an newer version that doesn't have this issue. Looking at the log file (relevant parts here) it seems Retrospect uses the version installed by the system. Now, updating the system-level Python version on Ubuntu is not recommended, but I am familiar with tools such as conda to install a newer Python version, however I don't now how to coerce Retrospect/Kodi into using it. Simply activating the conda environment before running Kodi results in the plugin not working at all, probably because of mixing of different versions. Some help please? I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS which comes with Python 2.7.6.

On Linux, Kodi uses the system Python version. So the only solution would be to update your system Python. I don't know why that is not recommended? As long as you stay at 2.7.11 or 2.7.12 and not go to 3?

Because a lot of parts in Ubuntu is depending on python and replacing the one that comes in the official repositories is considered a big no-no. If/when something blows up, like apt, everybody is going to be like "yeah you messed with the distribution, glhf".

EDIT: I've posted about this in the Linux support sub-forum as well: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=307169

Is there an option to do a distro upgrade or have 2 versions of python running simultaneously?

Well, I suppose upgrading to 16.04 is an option if all else fails, but that's a bit of a hassle. As I said I can install local versions of Python with conda, but it doesn't matter if I don't know how to tell Kodi to use it.

I am not so familiar with Ubuntu, but will follow the discussion in the topic you opened.

The streams from Uitzending Gemist(NPO.nl) are not working for me.
Other (Dutch) channels like Veronica/NOS etc are working fine.
I always get the message: "Retrospect error, cannot start playback"

Is anyone having the same issue?

Please update to the most recent NPO channel (version 4.1.3.4) installed. See https://bitbucket.org/basrieter/xbmc-onl...dinggemist
