I Voted in your great addon.

Btw, the voting ends on Sunday 23rd at midnight.

I didn't find where to send feedback on that app, so here it is :

When you use a http proxy in the xbmc configuration, your app tries to fetch an https url through that proxy using a GET http command. It should be using a CONNECT command. I tried other apps connecting to the internet using https (youtube and twitch.tv) and yours is not doing the right CONNECT command when the others do.

I tried version 1.0.0 (from official repo) and version 1.0.1 (using the .zip from that forum thread) on XBMC version 12 on a raspberrypi using raspbmc.
I'm using a squid 3 as http proxy.

If you need help to check new versions when using proxies, you can send me .zip files of jamBMC Smile

sorry, I have no proxy to test. Can you tell me more details?
- Which requests are using the wrong http command? All?

You can also contact me via email (see add-on info for my address) or you could open a github issue.

The Contest is over and unfortunately JamBMC couldn't win any price.
Thanks anyway for voting!

Nevertheless, I will continue the development of this add-on Smile

@sphere, in addon settings, is not possible insert user name, I need edit manually file settings.xml, in addon_data, for solve.

Yes, I already fixed the issue on github but didn't bump the version in the repo.
Just to be sure: You know that the username-field in settings is not an text-setting but an action setting - so you need to select it and you will be asked for the username in an modal keyboard dialog.

I will bump the version in the repo in a few days...
