[Video Addon] Viewster - learningit - 2014-07-25

Another eclectic film website with foreign films, TV, cartoons and anime.

Repo is available at: https://github.com/learningit/plugin.video.viewster

I am working on the .f4m version for better resolution viewing. It's working, but there are some stability issues with the proxy. I'll release when it's more stable.

I would appreciate any feedback from folks outside the US, I may have some work to do to support the German site.

Before anyone asks, this is a legitimate website. I've been slowly completing the websites listed on the MPAA http://wheretowatch.org/ website which were not in the xbmc.org repo - Snagfilms, Popcornflix, etc.

In Germany the German category is missing and the Turkish? category has Spanish movie titles with original (English) soundtrack, the rest is working fine.

I really appreciate your work, thanks.

It's exactly the same in the US. (I don't understand the Turkish thing either)

Are you assuming that there is a German category or do you know that there is one from looking at the website with a browser? If it appears in a browser, is it being redirected to http://de.viewster.com/ ? Also, is the text of the website in German or English? And lastly, is primary language set in your browser German or English. The reason I ask is this website seems to rely on exactly what is in the http request headers to change its personality, more than indicators or flags set in the request urls.

I still have some work to do because the categories and searches support a language and sub-title language indicator which would be nice to set as addon setting. There are English, French, German and Spanish indicators. Thanks for your help as I try to get language support working for this addon.

The latter.

No, Viewster homepage is http://viewster.com

That depends on the language I select.

Highlander with German soundtrack is http://viewster.com/serie/1247-16957-000/highlander-season-6#

Primary language is German, no proxy or VPN activated.


RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - Alexsource - 2014-07-28

Just a heads up!
Viewster also has a youtbe channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ViewsterTV)
wich is linked at the top of their homepage, alongside the twitter and facebook icons. The geolocation blocking seems to be either missing or diferent there, as at least one flick i can only see the first 4 minutes on their website, plays fully on their youtube channel (http://www.viewster.com/movie/1050-10138-000/blind-fist-of-bruce-lee vs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCBlKMZLxZA&list=PL5038C60BD2F64194&feature=c4-overview)


RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - learningit - 2014-07-29

Updated version supporting higher resolution videos and language selection (version 1.0.3) can be tested from my git at:
https://github.com/learningit/plugin.video.viewster


RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - Eye in the sky - 2014-07-30

German language selection is working with v.1.0.3, thanks.

One thing I noticed is that the Travel & Destinations Thumbnail is missing, but besides that, everything seems to be fine now.

RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - Alexsource - 2014-07-30

An "All Languages" option would be nice, as there are some movies wich will not come up in the list if one of the languages is selected (e.g.: the man who stops storm -> http://www.viewster.com/movie/1061-10262-000/the-man-who-stops-storm korean audio, no subs; or WOLF -> http://www.viewster.com/movie/1229-16341-000/wolf in Swede, with no subs).

Version 1.0.4 adds "All Languages" in addon settings

RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - Alexsource - 2014-09-27

I got around to watching a full flick in viewster addon last weekend, and it worked great. There was a bit of buffering somewhere around the middle of the runtime, but that was probably my internet connection acting up. Wink


RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - Eye in the sky - 2014-11-18

Viewster was working great, but now I'm getting script error.

RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - learningit - 2014-11-19

Change to feeds. Version 1.0.5 update here:
https://github.com/learningit/plugin.video.viewster

Let me know if it works so I can submit to the xbmc.org repo. Thanks,


RE: [Video Addon] Viewster - hatteruk - 2014-11-21

Seems to work now - must admit only found this the other day when it stopped working - love it, so many odd things to discover and rewatch Smile
Thanks

Can you give more info - what item are you trying to play, etc. I don't remember seeing very many videos with German subtitles.
