Lightbulb  [REQUEST] Racebuddy and NASCAR Video Plugin?
Post: #1
I recently ditched comcast digital cable and now can't watch NASCAR races..
Is there any plugin in development to allow the TNT Racebuddy or other live streams to be pulled into xbmc?

I cant get Justin TV to run more then 10 mins. Then my xbox locks up. Anyone else having this issue with plugin?

The Racebuddy had alot more extras that you dont have on a tv stream.

After Justin shut down all the racing streams last weekend I had a go at this.

You can install from my repo or download and install from zip - http://divingmules-repo.googlecode.com/f...-0.0.1.zip

Some streams will immediately start buffering when the stream starts, when this happens, you will have to select "play" again for the video to start.

I had trouble getting the http streams to play last weekend so I've updated the add-on to use the fallback rtmp streams.

If you have my repository installed you should get an update or you can download and install from zip -> http://divingmules-repo.googlecode.com/f...-0.0.2.zip

Couple of questions...

1. Is this add-on geolocked to US IP's or can people from Europe use this too?

2. Seem to be able to get schedule data for Nationwide & Truck series but not Sprint Cup. Says something about schedule data not being released until August, even though the season has already started?

I don't know. I would expect if you can't watch in a browser that you wont be able to get the streams with this either.

The schedules are only for RaceBuddy broadcasts, not all the races. The Sprint Cup RaceBuddy page doesn't have a schedule up (yet) like the others, it's just a jpeg picture. They had a page up for a couple of days that had the schedule with races starting in August but they took it down.

There is a nascar.com plugin in the main repo - http://addons.xbmc.org/show/plugin.video.nascar/

My racebuddy plugin is broken, after they stopped using rtmp streams, I never figured out how to get the streams to play Undecided
