Hello folks,

I made a video addon for the dutch gaming site Gamekings (http://www.gamekings.tv)


It's available as a video addon in the official kodi repo. So you can install it as a video addon: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_add-ons

If you got problems with the addon, just reply here with a link to a kodi log file (here are the instructions to make a logfile with kodi: http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Easy ).

First of all, thanks for writing this plugin!
I'm using it in XBMC on an Apple TV 2 and i'm experiencing a problem that already occurred in the Gamekings plugin i used a while back within Navi-X, namely that the video and audio are out of sync. This problem so far only occurs in the Gamekings plugin. It's so bad, that it isn't watchable and i tend to switch to a laptop to watch the vids.

Any idea what may cause this problem? Are other people experiencing this problem?
Good stuff. :-)

Does it work with Gotham atm?
Did a fresh install of XBMCbuntu 13.0 Gotham today. The Gamekings add-on isn't working properly anymore for me. I'm getting an error message saying "Error playing media file." after selecting a video to play. Am I doing something, or something changed on gamekings.tv? Perhaps a compatibility issue with Gotham?
Something changed on the website. I'll fix it.

Hi there. Is something changed on the website recently? I'm missing an epiode in Kodi and it shows wrong images next to the episode. Also, I discovered that the latest episode isn't showing up in Kodi.
