Another year - another rewrite Smile
I have again totally rewritten both my Digitally Imported and Sky.fm plugins

  • Multithreading - using 8 simultaneous threads that downloads coverart (if not already cached) and parses the playlists - a refresh now takes about 5-7 seconds
  • Cache expiration is now calculated in days and not minutes - default 7 days
  • When parsing playlists (on cache refresh) it selected a random server playing the stream each time
  • The option to open a playlist and select the streaming server you want - off by default

* Fixed it so UTF8 chars is handled correctly in channelnames
* Fixed a "miscalculation" that made it so when using favorites, the playlist being activated when clicking the channelname,
was actually the one belonging to the next channelname, etc.

30 Oct 2012 v2.0.0
+ Using JSON to get streams addresses instead of parsing the HTML for them
+ Added an indication of what quality the stream is, shown as i.e: 64 kb
* Complete rewrite of the codebase, making it more modular and generally awesomer
* Using Di.fms own JSON data to find streams, instead of parsing the HTML by RegEx
* Changed the highlight color of new channels from orange to blue, as the "currently playing" channel is orange in the default skin for Eden
* Changed default refresh rate from 360 (6 hours) to 720 hours (12 hours)
* Updated addons description

Thanks to DexN for making me aware of the JSON data and for being my willing guinea pig Wink

My website qualisoft.dk - horribly neglected!
Awesome! Thanks man.

Working great here. Premium on Win7x64+Eden.
looking good.. Smile
hello...i know it's way too off-topic but I noticed you have installed an add-on for sky.fm , where did you find it?

thanks! (sorry)
prodigy and wilson.joe: Good to hear Smile

kachro: Sky.fm is my next sideproject Wink
I've only just started on it, but it seems feasible to reuse much of the codestructure from the DI.fm plugin.
I have no estimated release on it right now, as I got another project that needs som attention as well.
thanks for the quick reply bitcrusher01. I took the liberty to download your add-on from your site and took a view at the code. I am not very familiar with python coding but I realized that sky.fm and di.fm are "sisters networks" so I figure the tweak for your add-on shouldn't be that massive. (I tried changing the BASE_URL but it didn't work....lolSmile).

Anyway, I'm gonna try to modify a few things in your files and see if I get lucky and can end up listen to sky.fm. Obviously if I do, I'll return you the favor and give you back your files, and of course, you will still have all the credit for the add-on man.

In the mean time I'll keep listening to the Ambient channel thanks to you ;=)

Even though they are "sister networks" they work radically different (in my opinion).
DI.fm has links to .pls (playlist) files with mp3/aac streams, you can download and play in a player of your choice.
Sky.fm has a "Listen now" button, that envokes a new window with a flashplayer, playing a .flv file - even if you are a premium listener it seems.

I have an idea of a way to work around this - but I have yet to implement and try it out if it actually works.
oops, I didn't notice that...I think I'm gonna wait until you figure this out then...lolSmile


I have a problem when it seems to try and stream every channel
then finally crashes

unless I pick the one at the bottom of the list

I am assuming for some reason it tries to play everything below what I pick ?

anyone else having this problem

using XBMC 11 on FreeBSD DI plugin 1.1.1
MasterCATZ: Can you put your xbmc.log file on pastebin?
Hopefully it would give me a clue as to whats going wrong.
Sky.fm has a feature where you can select what mode you want on the website. It does have a winamp compatible stream. It was a bit hard for me to find at first, but it's at http://www.sky.fm/settings .

Also, I don't know if something is wrong, but since the latest update, I'm not seeing ANY streams in my list. It says it found 40 when it did the scan, but all I see is the parent folder ("..") item. I've checked my username and password settings, i've uninstalled and reinstalled the addon, and I still get nothing.
agent154: Have you tried going to the addon settings, and enable "Force cache refresh" and see if that fixes it for you?.

About sky.fm, I'm very close to having a working version done, both with public and premium streams - I suspect it will only be AAC as well though.
And yes, those settings is hard to find - I didn't see them before you pointed them out.
I have forced the cache refresh and it was the same thing.

I did stumble upon something though. It seems to work if I turn off "Library Mode"... but I don't want to have to do that. Is this intended, or is it a bug? If I have library mode on, it won't show any channels.
I've just tried installing the plugin on XBMC Eden on Win7, and after adding some music to index, so that Library mode became available, I could still see the DI.fm streams in Library mode.
I have no idea why it's not working for you Undecided
Are you running Dharma or Eden?
Would someone else perhaps try it out and see if this is a recurring problem?
I'm using Eden. I'll try to delete my music cache and start over to see what happens.
