however...... it starts half way thru the movie on some and stops nearly immediately on others.
Starting half-way through the movie could be a sign that I'm not correctly sorting the multi-file movies correctly. Which movie in particular was this?

Hmm, my movies start correctly from IceFilms.
You can check by opening up the .strm where that movie is located in {dropbox}\Movies.

It should look something like this:
Code:
plugin://plugin.video.icefilms/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.megaupload.com%2F%3Fd%3D1IZJI7H0%26w%3D719%26h%3D349&mode=200&name=Source+%231+%7C+MU+%7C+Part+1
plugin://plugin.video.icefilms/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.megaupload.com%2F%3Fd%3DQU0CAKEI%26w%3D719%26h%3D349&mode=200&name=Source+%231+%7C+MU+%7C+Part+2
Notice how the first line ends in Part+1 and the second line is Part+2.
Check your .strm file and see if they are in the correct order.

You never have to change them to .strm's manually.
In fact, that workaround will work only for TV shows because of a quirk in XBMC's video scanner.

Sounds like something got messed up with all the changes you've made.

You could try starting from scratch:

  1. Delete everything inside TV Shows, Movies, and Music Videos folders.
  2. Clean XBMC's video library.
  3. Delete all .db files in the dist folder of this program.
  4. Run this program again.

Also, & in XML is represented by: &amp;

cheers for the help bud,

just a quick one, once baywatch has been scanned to the library, i can remove it from the config.xml file so that the script runs quicker yeah?

but obviously add it back in if the streams start failing so that it updates the streams again??/


also is there anyway to get rid of the playback failed dialog... have tried the esc key but that kills the already playing video and have also tried return but that kills it as wellConfused?
