Hmm... maybe a silly question. But how do you run it as a plugin? I thought only "program mode" was available. I have an eden build from 4-12-11.

I assume you first installed the XOT-Uzg.v3 repository and then using that you installed XOT-Uzg.v3 (See http://www.rieter.net/pages/XOT:Installa...s_an_Addon).

In that case goto Videos -> Video Add-ons -> XOT-Uzg.v3.
Hi Bas,

I'm having some problems with the latest update, especially with iRTL. Sometimes the stream just quits and I go back to the plugin's overview. I already tried to set the bit rate lower, but it didn't help. I think it's because I don't see any buffering before the stream quits. And yesterday, nothing happened when I clicked the play button. The stream didn't even load. Sounds familiar? Or do you need some kind of log? Thanks!

If it starts playing and then quits, please post an xbmc.log on pastebin.com (it's probably an XBMC issue, but perhaps I can fix it)
If it does not even start, please post an uzg.log (or uzgplugin.log) and an xbmc.log on pastebin.com. Perhaps it's better to create an official bug for this on the XOT Googlecode page.

Please post an xbmc.log, uzg.log/uzgplugin.log on pastbin.com and please try more than one program? Also mention which items you are trying to play back.

There was a bug with iRTL: http://code.google.com/p/xot-uzg/issues/detail?id=302

I fixed it and there should be a channel-update soon. However: X-mas is coming so I do not have a lot of time. So it's either tomorrow or after X-mas. So for those who are impatient: I attached an updated Python file in the above Issue link.
Thanks for the hotfix Bas. It's working again. Nod
I cannot play streams from the iRTL feed, when i try to play streams nothing happens or the message "one or more items failed to play, check the log file for more details". The uzg log does not show any errors but the xbmc log does:

Please post a complete uzg.log or uzgplugin.log on pastebin.com, so I can see what is wrong. Keep in mind that you need the XBMC Eden Beta1 in order to play the iRTL channel or a very recent (1 week or less) XBMC4Xbox build.
Installing the latest XBMC beta did the trick, i can now watch the iRTL streams.

There is only one thing not working and that is watching SBS, Net5 and Veronica streams. When i open up SBS or Veronica XBMC tries to load for a minute or 2 with the message "0 items received", after that it returns to the channel list of the plugin. With Net5 it loads 17 series but when i select a serie the same thing happens as when selecting the SBS or Veronica channel.

To be sure that there is not a problem with the SBS, Veronica and Net5 websites i have tested to watch some tv shows there and that works fine.

I have added a uzgplugin log as you requested with my previous issue.

I don't know if you did something but everything is working now, i have not changed anything over here.

The addon is working great now, thank you!

I checked your logfile and it shows timeouts on the websites, that is why XOT cannot find any items. I just checked and it all looks fine for me (Windows and iOS). Could you check again?

There is a bug in PyAMF (library I use) that prevents playing 2 items in a row. I will fix that in the next XOT version.

EDIT: I just read your post. Glad we have the same conclusion.
This is a very nice add-on/script! I really love it Smile

However, I noticed there are some hiccups. When trying the Belgian channels, for example 'één', it displays correctly the options to choose from 'Blokken', 'Man bijt hond', 'Het nieuws', ... But when you click them, you see totally different programs than the one chosen. This seems to be a small bug.

For example: when I choose 'Blokken' I'll see an episode of 'Vlaanderen Vakantieland'
