For all the parents out there who were interested in having PBS shows easily available through XBMC, now you can!

With the PBS Kids plugin you can stream clips and full episodes from a wide variety of shows that are available on PBSKids.org, including:
  • Arthur
  • Curious George
  • Mister Rodgers' Neighborhood
  • Sesame Street
  • And many others...

This is my very first addon, so feel free to let me know if you run into any issues and I'd be happy to help.

You can get it from my repository available at https://github.com/downloads/conorbranag...lugins.zip

I hope you enjoy it!
THANKS! Kid friendly addons are few and far between (working anyways). I appreciate it.
will try it out this afternoon. Thanks!
Can't wait to try this out.
Does anyone know if this is restricted to US only?

Played around with this for a while last night on my ATV2 and it ran very smooth. My kids thank you.
Saw that Hooper wasn't on the list in addon.py
('Hooper', 'http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSBMEB-a-xkVxJPxB6YtJSf3B3gFj_tr0ws-Tm4hXpyLctwzUO6LA'),
Cool, thanks for finding that! It's added now. Smile
Working great here,

I installed this plug-in today on my Apple TV 2 - XBMC Eden Beta 2 and although I can see the list of episodes, when I try to play it..nothing happens.

I am in Canada.

Any idea what's going on here?
Squidiums - sent you a PM. Please reply re: my offer to help out with this add-on. Thanks!
Thanks! I noticed a key error on line 137 when trying to list Arthur episodes:
10:26:59 T:5484   ERROR: Error Type: <type 'exceptions.KeyError'>
10:26:59 T:5484   ERROR: Error Contents: (u'\u2019',)
If you replace this line:
'title': urllib.quote(ep['title'])
with this:
'title': urllib.quote(ep['title'].encode('utf-8','ignore'))

It will fix the issue
Yep - I also had noticed and corrected that issue. There are a couple more bugs that I have fixed and some enhancements I'd like to add. I'm using this as my XBMC/Python self-tutorial since the 1.0.1 version of the add-on was a nice, working base to start from.

Still waiting to hear if I can contribute my additions to the existing work...

I would say post your changed. I just looked at the ops profile, Last Visit: 2011-11-26 01:34.
And being that he hosted his project on google code, that makes it open source. So as long as you post the source with your changes I do not think there is an issue
Thanks for contributing and good luck with python!
Is it possible to take the basic foundation of this coding of the PBS Kids add on and apply it to Disney Jr, as well (http://disney.go.com/disneyjunior/videos...l-episodes)?
