I found out what is the problem with the playing of the streams from uitzendinggemist.
There are a lot of tvshows which start with a very short flash fragment, in which the STER symbol is shown.
When such a fragment is in front of the moviestream, XBMC will not buffer the movie it self!

On uitzendinggemist.nl there are also some moviestreams which do not have such a flash fragment in front, and those streams are buffered correctly and played by XBMC!

Does have anybody else have this problem too?

If this is the case, could you please give me an example of such an item with flash? Then I will fix it.

Examples that have the flash preview are 'Boer zoekt vrouw', or 'Bananasplit', or 'Blik op de weg'. All programs of Nederland 1. Also other channels use these flash previews.

Examples of programs without flash preview (these are the tvstreams which do get buffered and played) are 'Ajax, missie kaapstad' and 'Jorge Castro ontmoet', also tvstreams of channel Nederland 1.

Well, I tried all the above and they play find for windows and XBMC. Please post a complete uzg.log (at pastebin.ca, don't paste here) after starting an item that does not play correctly.

Im having problem with XOT script, no mater what channel I try to fetch content from I'm getting "No files". Im using the lastest stable xbmc release from http://t3ch.yi.se/ on the xbox and the latest XOT version, anyone know whats wrong?


Edit: solved it, my networksettings on the xbox wasn't setup correctly, DNS was wrong. Cudos for a ├╝ber script though. Smile

UZG.log at pastbin.ca: http://pastebin.ca/1753357

Performed actions:
- after starting XBMC live, I directly started the XOT_Uzg script from the myscripts directory.
- Within XOT_Uzg I directly browsed to the newest episode of 'boer zoekt vrouw'(29-11-2009).
- XBMC shows the first frame of the tv stream, but it doesn't buffer.
- I pressed the 'play' button, and for the tvstream starts playing for less then a second. Then it stops.

One suggestion for the cause of this problem:
Maybe the XOT_UZG application uses the duration of the 'ster' animation (flash) (which is in front of the tvstream) as if it is the duration of the tv stream it self.
When I open the tv stream itself in IE on my windows PC, the flash animation is about the same duration, the first time I open the tvstream in IE.

Short answer: NO! XOT finds this URL: mms://wm-ondemand07.omroep.nl/public/ug-od/wm/2/media/wm2c4/ceres/kro/rest/2009/KRO_1351682/bb.20091129.asf?wmt=4b518bc2&wmhash=5f80dea4 and sends it to XBMC for playback. The script does nothing with durations etc. It's just the crapy implementation of the MMS protocol in XBMC Linux/Live.

is there any chances to improve the situation with mms streams in linux xbmc ?


- Goga777 - 2010-01-21

so I repeated my question about of mms streams in separate topic
xbmc linux & mms audio/video streams - what's happening ? Let's clarify

So i had this problem too (running T3CH from Jan 17 and XOT-Uzg v3.2.0b6 on an XBOX. No Linux. no PC.).

I have not figured out why it crashes but i hacked around the problem by adding try/except around line 204 in logger.py.

For anyone else who i looking for a quick and dirty fix i suppose you can simply remove line 204 from the file resources/libs/logger.py (the one that is listed in the error log). Thus turning
Code:
def debug(self, msg, *args, **kwargs):
        self.Write(msg, level=DEBUG, *args, **kwargs)
        return
Into
Code:
def debug(self, msg, *args, **kwargs):
        return

This will kill all logging but it does get the script to run. Big Grin

If you read up on this, you would have found that the solution is not to kill the logging, but to comment the line in plugin.py that calls logFile.debug(channelGUI.sortOrder).

This will be fixed in the upcoming release.

Hey i gave it almost 5 minutes of reading+googling Wink

Anyways it got the problem solved and i can live without logging as long as the thing actually runs.

Thanks for a great piece of software Basje!

yes with current truck I can play mms stream without any problem
http://trac.xbmc.org/changeset/27149

also need to install the patch for libmms 0.5
https://bugs.launchpad.net/libmms/+bug/512089

still has someone the problem with mms streams ?

Basje Wrote:Well, the problem is that I cannot get XBMC Live to work in my Virtual PC. So it will take a bit longer.

Any updates on this.

I'm running XBMC Live 9.11 and downloaded the plugin from http://www.rieter.net/uitzendinggemist/.

Then copied it to /home/xbmc/.xbmc/plugins/video/XOT-Uzg.v3

When I try "Add Source" - Video Plugin - XOT nothing happens. Don't even get logfiles (which I suppose will be found in the same directory as the plugin Huh)

Even tried to copy it to the scripts folder but no luck.

TIA!

No I don't get it, how do I fix it..?Sad Huh (I'm not a linux expert) Can you tell me step by step what I have to do and how to patch it?

Just put it in the script folder (/home/xbmc/.xbmc/scripts) and then access it via "Scripts" from within XBMC
