Marcel, is there a solution to the beautiful soup related errors?

I've seen some people say they've installed a beautiful soup addon, but I haven't been able to find such an addon for Isengard.

I'm guessing the lack of an addon is the reason for the error in the first place.
I'm no longer getting an error, but it's still not working. Now when going to skin settings and choosing the option to select a widget, kodi freezes up and I have to force-quit. The list of widgets never load up.

That error has already been solved.

Restart Kodi ?

Can you grab latest from Git ? That should fix the issue when an animation is applied to the colorpicker window
restarted kodi, no luck. may be a skin shortcuts issue since it won't open at all. In addition, I did some digging and discovered the playlist in special://skin/extras/playlists/ was no longer there (nextepisodes.xsp). I was able to manually edit the settings to point to recently added episodes, so at least kodi isn't freezing and crashing every time i start it up now, but would you know where I should look next? it's tough that the skin utilizes SHS and Skin Shortcuts so much as it makes it quite hard to discover which is causing the problems if something goes wrong.

No luck...
The animation is working, but the save does nothing.
Code:
<window>
    <defaultcontrol always="true">3110</defaultcontrol>
    <controls>
        <control type="group">
            <animation effect="slide" start="-400" end="0" time="400">WindowOpen</animation>
            <animation effect="slide" start="0" end="-400" time="400">WindowClose</animation>

Can you check your log if there is some error in there ?
Maybe this is the wrong thread, but is there a way to have "ListItem.StartDate" and "ListItem.StartTime" combined and get the result as a "unix-time"?
This would be helping with a PVR-reminder-addon here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=251829
Thx

Hmm, I'm not sure if it is fixable with that animation.
I've added an additional delay of 400ms now. Can you grab latest Git and try again ?

I have just fixed the issue on Git (thanks for your log, that helped me find the cause).
I will provide a new beta of the script in a minute on the beta repo

This is now done. The getcast method will accept movie/show titles that aren't in your library and look those up on tmdb
