Quote:Yep, that worked! Maybe something was cached somewhere preventing the auth to update. Thanks!!
Glad it worked, I am still in the dark on what caused the problem though.


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

@OTinley,

Do you recall trying "Clear Cached Data" option when that happened in your setup? This seems like a problem with cookies rather than authentication (as authentication details returned details successfully)

Code:
ParentPath = [plugin://plugin.video.espn_3/?MODE=AUTHENTICATE]

Normally it should be

Code:
ParentPath = [plugin://plugin.video.espn_3]

Just before it starts reading the cache, it should have had a line like

Code:
3:35:45 T:9120  NOTICE: ESPN3 util: Fetching config file C:\Users\htpc\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\addon_data\plugin.video.espn_3\40f0cf5096fd09337xxxxxxxxxx0f576a871f3d2cb00fb72726a5.xml from http://espn.go.com/watchespn/....

Maybe next time someone encounters this, they can try the clear cache route. It should not require re-authentication, just getting fresh xml & cookies and forcing a cache reload.

Yes, several times.
That is why I did not mention to do so because it did not help me.


RE: ESPN 3 - awaters1 - 2016-06-09

I fixed the issue in the develop branch https://github.com/awaters1/plugin.video.espn_3/tree/develop


RE: ESPN 3 - locomot1f - 2016-06-09

just trying to get a feeling if people are happy about where things are with this addon.

should we look to get it pushed to the official repo?
I can do it, or if someone else wants to take over, I'm cool with that too.
just let me know. either here or PM me.

thanks for everyones hard work, and new life to this addon. Euro's are coming up, and I think people would like to have this as an option!

talk soon.


RE: ESPN 3 - binder420 - 2016-06-10

Since it's a fully functioning espn addon with every channels working I think we should call it watchespn and update to match the watchespn logo

To say @awaters1 did a great job restoring full functionality to the add-on would be a serious understatement.

There are, however, a couple of minor changes I would like to suggest:
  1. An option to use the legacy menu by default. Maybe I'm just used to the old menu, but I like it better. I am most interested in live events, and I have little to no interest in the short clips provided in the "enhanced" menu. I've tweaked the code on my local machine to allow this, and added a link to the "enhanced" menu at the bottom. Very simple mod to make this happen.

  2. Remove the colors from the menus, or add an option to do so. Not a big fan of the color coding of the network names and other items in the menus. In some ways, it's actually harder for me to read (I'm old and no longer have perfect vision though), and the various colors clash with some skins. I've also tweaked the code on my local machine to add an option to do this, although I've probably taken the long road in making this happen, and I'm sure an actual coder could do this better than I.

With or without these changes, it's a great add-on again thanks to the excellent work done by @awaters1.


RE: ESPN 3 - OTinley - 2016-06-10

I tend to agree with MetalChris on both points, but most strongly on #1.
Great job either way and thank you again.


RE: ESPN 3 - locomot1f - 2016-06-10

great points @MetalChris.

me likes options too.
i'll be updating the first post to reflect what's been happening. probably should have been doing this from the front....
you know what "they" say, better late than never.


RE: ESPN 3 - awaters1 - 2016-06-11

Thank you guys for the feedback, I use it to drive the menu system and options. I have made some enhancements in the develop branch, my next main focus will be to get this into the Kodi repository after some testing rounds.

I was able to duplicate the issue. It seems like this happens when there is a conflict in the Kodi cookies.dat file with ESPN using some new domains. I was able to delete the Kodi cache (cookies.dat) and fix the issue when the previous workaround didn't work for me (Delete addon and addon userdata directories).

@MetalChris, looks like the latest develop from @awaters1 has all of your suggestions incorporated ! Also looks like he has finished all the device emulations as well (AppleTV, tvOS, Roku, AndroidTV). Would love to see more folks giving suggestions on the home menu layout.


RE: ESPN 3 - ncube2 - 2016-06-15

I keep getting this SMIL URL Blank.. Cannot play video.. is there a fix for this ? I downloaded the ESPN3 addon from the Kodi official repo.
Here's a snippert of the Kodi log - Glad if someone can help me out.

Download from @awaters1 repo, link in post above yours.

Please do not post logs in the forum, rather upload to pastebin.com and provide a link.


RE: ESPN 3 - GriffeyJuni0r - 2016-06-16

I've moved over the repo build and getting a similar error as before (no live ESPN feeds will load, only ESPN3).

Deleting the plugin and re-authenticating didn't help this time - Where is the cookies.dat file located in Kodi that you mentioned?
