And can anyone recommend any Dutch kids programs? The real ones are still too difficult for my pidgin Dutch and I'd like to start teaching my kid soon.

this is related to your cache settings of XBMC.
Anyone else having the problem while watching from 123videos with xot, that most of the time the audio is only noise.

This only happens with files that use the:

- adpcm flash variant audio codec

And with some other videos, also on dumpert sometimes the video´s move faster then the audio.

I can´t figure out whats wrong, and i didnt see anyone else complaining about this.

Using the latest t3ch build, several times reinstalled it from scratch, incl deleting the folders in U/Tdata.
Hm, ik heb nu de laatste 3.0.1 versie van XOT geinstalleerd, maar ik krijg alleen maar 'no files' op de RTL's (ook met patch)... De Nederlandse kanalen geven wel iets, maar als je die wilt afspelen doen ze niks, en blijft de Xbox hangen. Weird. De 3.0.0 versie werkte perfect, maar die is er nu af, en kan ik ook niet meer krijgen... *zucht*..

Struis.
Oh, obviously should be in English..

Hm, just installed the most recent version (3.0.1) of XOT, but I keep getting 'no files' on the RTL channels (even with patch)... The Dutch channels (1-3) do work, but hangs the Xbox when trying to watch something. Weird. Annoyingly, the 3.0.0 version worked perfectly, but is gone now, and I can't download it anymore... Back to watching on the PC again Sad

Cheers, Struis.

Please e-mail a uzg.log file to uitzendinggemist.vx[ed]gmail[d0t]com. I will have a look at it.
I also got 3.01 and no channel is working - it tries loading directory but the result is always "retrieved 0 items" and an empty list. May i also mail you the log?

Sure, mail it to me and I will have a look at it.
I find that after watching a movie on Quicksilver for a few minutes, it will suddenly stop and return to the movie list.

I have experienced this on two different XBoxs and have tried to fix the problem by increasing the cache etc but to no avail.

I wonder if anyone else has found this problem and whether there is an easy fix.

Thanks

Could you check on the site (http://www.quicksilverscreen.com) which video host (Veoh, megavideo etc....) the movie is hosted on?

It is muliple hosts - Veoh/Google/megavideo - it doesn't seem to be relevant to the provider.

The video will play for approx 3-5mins and will then halt and return to the movie list. It isn't related to cache (I have had the cache up to 12mb).

Hope this helps

If it helps, it has happened to on the 'Vantage Point' video hosted on Veoh.

Yes it is! The procedures to retrieve the Media-url are different for all of them. In the Veoh case, it will only give you a 20MB preview stream, no full movie. So check what provider it is hosted on! Or just send me a complete XOT logfile, so I can see it for myself.

Is there anyway of getting round this restriction??

Thanks

Nope, not until XBMC can play files which are still being written. That way we can download the file and start playback while still downloading.

See more here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=31635&page=4
I can't play video files true the "Kanalen Kierzer" option. XBMC completely locks up. The only option is to hard-reset XBMC. The log doesn't really tell me what is going wrong. Below is a small portion of the log. I can send the whole file if needed.
