It would be nice to have this addon with the music video support.
I'm currently working on a fork of the original tamland/Kodi-TIDAL Addon on github.com.

Because this addon is developed a long time ago, the update has to be compatible to XBMC 13.1, Kodi 14.2, 15.2, and 16.1 !
So I have to test my addon on all these Kodi releases.

I have still some small problems with the skin on Kodi 17 Beta1.
After I've fixed this I will commit my changes to my github fork to make it available.

Hello everybody !

I think, my version of the TIDAL Addon is ready to use.
You can download it from https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal

The main new features are:
- Music Video Support
- Complete Favorites and User Playlist Handling
- Colored Item Labels to indicate Favorites and User Playlist members
- German Translation
- Trial Mode (plays 30 seconds of each title/video when not logged in, no subscription needed)
- Shortcut functions to use as Actions in keyboard.xml or remote.xml

A complete changelog can be viewed here:
https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal...ngelog.txt

To update the addon manually, you have to replace the content of the addon folder
plugin.audio.wimp with my files.

It would be nice, if takoi make this version the Version 2.0.0 of this addon
and integrate it into the official Kodi Repository.

Have a lot of fun ...

I've only had a quick look, but for starters all skin hacks (that includes view modes, colors and all info label stuff in plugins) are a no-go in the official repository. This plugins should be skin-independent and work with all skins. Also, lib/tidalapi is an imported library. Changes to this should be added upstream here: https://github.com/tamland/python-tidal and must be kodi independent.
Always happy for contributions, but when you give me one huge dump of code in one commit, it's a lot of work to take out the parts that can be used...
Sorry takoi for this huge code package. Should I close my pull request on github ?

I understand, that my addon contains a lot of personal stuff which I inserted during the last 8 month
to make it more usable for me. But other people may not want all this stuff, but simply want to play music videos
and handle user playlists with the official TIDAL addon.

How can I help you to integrate music video support and user playlists with your addon ?

If I understand you right, I now have to make a branch of your universal Python TIDAL API and integrate
the new functions into it ? And then I have to integrate this into your Kodi addon (without any skin hacks) ?
Yeah, pretty much.. The point of having kodi specifics and tidal api parts separate like this is to make it reusable for others (there are already several other media player plugins using it) and hopefully benefit from getting contributions back. Also it forces good design which is always a plus;)
Login authorization failing now. Error 401

It seems, that the FLAC Login Token doesn't work anymore.
Now Lossless Streaming works with the normal API key.
To play Lossless you can set Quality to HIGH before login and change it back to LOSSLESS after login !

This works for me !!

>> After a new login some tracks of my User Playlists doesn't play anymore, because the addon gets encrypted stream urls for them.
>> I resolved this by restoring a Backup of my Addon settings.xml file which has an old but valid login session ID for FLAC Streaming !

Hello takoi,

I have an updated tidalapi for you to test on my github account: https://github.com/arnesongit/python-tid...pi-changes
In this version I have included some new features:
- Video Support
- New/Updated Classes in the Model
- Preview-Mode
- 2 Login Sessions with multiple Tokens to have Lossless Streaming and Video Streaming

I also added some test functions into the test_api.py for the Unit Tests.

Also I've done everything to ensure Backward Compatibility to the old version.
You can replace the tidalapi folder in your addon with my version and your addon still works.

To test the Video support of the tidalapi I made a simple Video integration into your addon.
You can download it here: https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal...eo-Support

Currently I'm working on a redesign of your addon with German translations, Video Quality Selection, Support for Favorites and User Playlists.
My actual version of it is here: https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal...l-redesign

Please test it and tell me if I'm on the right way !

PS: Today the FLAC Token doesn't work for a new login. Make a Backup of your Addon settings.xml before logout !
Hi everybody,

Just installed the TIDAL 1.2.2 on KODI 15.2

Installation went well but then when I launch the addon I've "Authorization Problem" I've a free 30 days account, I tried the 3 level of quality...

Any idea ?

Thanks

What if I don't have a Backup ? Can you guys fix it in time? Or is this something Tidal won't let you do anymore ?

The FLAC Token is still not working. It seems that TIDAL has disabled it or the login servers have a problem.

I found the FLAC Token "oIaGpqT_vQPnTr0Q" which is from a very old Wimp API and this Token is working for FLAC Streaming !!

If you like, you can try my modified version of the TIDAL Addon which uses this working Token.
You can found it on https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal
This version has also Video playback support and can work with Favorites and User Playlists.

Hello takoi,

I found a different FLAC Login Token that works for lossless streaming.
The "old" FLAC Token seems to be disabled.

The new Token is in my new version of your tidalapi.
Please look into my github folders:

- Updated tidalapi: https://github.com/arnesongit/python-tidal
- Your TIDAL Addon V1.2.2 with Video support: https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal...eo-Support
- And my redesigned Version: https://github.com/arnesongit/kodi-tidal

It would be nice if you integrate my redesigned version into your official TIDAL Addon Smile

Can I make Pull Requests on github to push my versions into your Repository ?
Arneson,

To move on this issue I'm ready to test and provide feedback on your version of the plugin.

I you can drive me to the zip to install it

Regards,

S.

Started having the "Authorization Problem" bug around 2 months and have since not been able to use Tidal for Kodi. True shame as it's my primary source for playing music at home - love it, hope this can be resolved soon!
