Smil url being blank is usually due to the ISP not supporting password-less login of ESPN3. Does watchespn through the browser work as is? or do you need to login to your ISP?

I added in some random fixes that I noticed so please try again.

I tried with Comcast XFINITY but theoretically every provider in the list should work.

Thanks. My ISP is TWC and ESPN3 addon stopped working since August 2015 by which time ESPN had migrated all the infrastructure and mandated passwords.

For ESPN3 I do use WatchESPN app and games work after I login.

I will try again with your latest commits and upload a log if it doesn't work. I can see that the authentication process works fine though as I see cookies etc in the userdata.

I got a "Please verify your username and password..." message when use Dish to view ESPN/ESPN2 contents. ESPN3 works fine for me

Yes that debug log is what I was looking for, I recently made a commit that should fix it.


RE: ESPN 3 - binder420 - 2016-05-04

installed the new version still getting script error and no premium channels play
used both xfinity and direct tv logins

here is the new log: http://pastebin.com/qGX0Y2SF

Same issue and same result with Cox login I am afraid.
Will upload log when possible.

Greetings,
I installed your latest version from https://github.com/awaters1/plugin.video.espn_3 and tested with a valid Brighthouse username and password in the ESPN3 add-on config (NBC Sports Live works and desktop works). ESPN3 Live and recorded content get the smil:url blank error. I can't see in the debug log that the user id and password is even being passed? Here's the debug log:

Thanks

Thanks for the great work so far on this addon. Just gave it a try using my DirecTV details and it works fine but doesn't give you a choice to chose stream quality and only plays in SD.

Would be nice if this feature could be added similar to the NBC addon so you can chose the quality or it always plays the best available.

It is supposed to be best available, to be honest I haven't looked too much into the quality. The bitrate is low (2200kbps is what I am seeing) so there is some macroblocking, I'm not sure if they offer high bitrate streams.

I also made some updates with authentication in commit 6a28744 so if anyone had troubles before please try again. The plan is to have one pathway for every provider, but that plan may not pan out given the troubles thus far.

There are some events that are available in HD. Once you grab the master m3u8 file, you should be able to parse it to get the individual streams, and you'd then be able to allow the user to choose which stream they want. You can see there are multiple streams, at various bitrates, in the code below, with the a.m3u8 being the lowest bitrate, and the i.m3u8 being the highest available bitrate.

This is just another reason I gave up working on this. Even if I had been able to get things working for my provider, there would be a lot of trial and error getting it to work with others. Being completely candid, the entire SAML authentication was way over my head, and still is.

@locomot1f knows the add-on way better than I do, but if there's anything I can do to help, just let me know. I'd love to see you be successful with this.


RE: ESPN 3 - siuside - 2016-05-06

@MetalChris

I remember you were also impacted last year after the addon stopped working (TWC?). Are you able to get it to work with awaters version?


RE: ESPN 3 - awaters1 - 2016-05-06

Now I see, with the ESPN3 channel I can get the higher bitrates (5900ish), but the premium channels I cannot figure it out how to get more than 2200.

@locomot1f: I cannot seem to send PMs at the moment, keeps saying something about 'You do not have permission to access this page.'

I think you need to make at least 10 (or maybe it's 20?) posts before you can send PM's. Just reply to this one and give it a try again.

No, I have TWC internet only and my credentials do not work, nor do I expect they ever will since they do not work with the NBCSN add-on either. A friend who is on Comcast Xfinity has said it's working for him though.


RE: ESPN 3 - Chessie - 2016-05-07

Two of my systems updated to Openelec 7.0 Beta 3 which caused another issue with the new ESPN 3 add-on. After the update the add-on fails with the following error:

17:37:59 180.557770 T:1787818912 NOTICE: ESPN3: args {}

Adding the following 2 lines near the top of addon.py disables the cert validation and at least lets the add-on start and gets me back to the smil:url blank error:

See this thread for info on the error:
