I´m home from work sick so yes i could absolutely do that! give me a day or two. I have been planning to make some skinning regards to the alaska revisited skin and XOT maybe you would want something like that also?

I noticed that XOT-UZG works great for Dutch public broadcasting stations (NED1/2/3), but it often doesn't play anything on the commercial stations (SBS, RTL4, ...). Does this has something to do with commercials or is something wrong with my installation?

I use Dharma RC1 using latest official XBMC Live CD with the latest XOT-UZG...

Same problem, if I use the Ipad stream of RTL it plays for 7 minutes and then pause, if I resume it plays for some seconds en then pause again. If I play the stream from internet there are no problems.

If it starts playing, it should continue (at least for the Dutch channels, Swedish have SWF verification and sometimes need fixing), so there is something wrong with the caching of your XBMC or perhaps you have an old libmms?

I never have issues here with the Dutch channels, both for Xbox and for Windows.

I use the latest XBMC Live RC2 installation, so I guess I have the latest libmms version. I have added the logfile on PasteBin. I thought the following lines in the logfile would be the error:
Code:
NOTICE: DVDPlayer: Opening: mms://pssbswm.fplive.net/pssbswm/w/sbs6/fans_S02/fans_S02E08_db51984ff6.wmv
WARNING: CDVDMessageQueue(player)::Put MSGQ_NOT_INITIALIZED

But when I tested with XBMC Dharma RC1 on my Windows 7 laptop it runs fine, but I get the same not initialized message. But it is definitely an issue with the XBMC Live CD. I will try the XBMCFreak version to check if it works better. If you have any other clues, then please reply...

I did some searching on my XBMC Live installation and it seems that libmms 0.4-2 is installed. This is the libmms version that is distributed with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid (XBMC live is based on this version). The newer Maverick version uses libmms 0.6-2, so I will try if I can update libmms to the latest version to find out if this resolves this issue. XBMCFreak released an XBMC live CD based on Maverick, so if it runs correct on that version then it is caused by the old libmms version. Thanks for your support and keep up the good work...


- BugBoy - 2010-12-04

It seems that XBMC links libmms statically, so there is no way to upgrade libmms without recompiling XBMC completely. I will check with the TeamXBMC team to find out if there will be a fix.

I tested the Maverick LiveCD from XBMCFreak, but it cannot install XOT-UZG as a program add-on. The video add-on doesn't play, so that won't help me either.

I recompiled Dharma RC2 from scratch with libmms 0.6 support and now SBS 6 programs work fine as well. Your guess of an ancient libmms was correct. I have submitted a feature request to include libmms 0.6 (instead of libmms 0.4) with XBMC Dharma, but I expect that they won't incorporate it into Dharma anymore.

When XBMC Live switches to Maverick, then this issue should be fixed, because Maverick ships with libmms 0.6.

For the not-faint-at-heart guys, I have created a tar that includes the new recompiled XBMC with libmms 0.6. This XBMC version is not fully tested and is only tested on my XBMC Dharma RC2 live CD installation. If you want to give it a try, issue the following commands:
Code:
$ cd ~
$ wget http://www.ramondeklein.nl/Download/xbmc-dharma-rc2-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ sudo tar -xvz -C / -f xbmc-dharma-rc2-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ rm xbmc-dharma-rc2-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ sudo reboot

If the XBMC team won't include libmms 0.6 in Dharma final, then I will rebuild an XBMC version if required.


well it did not work on my appletv (karmic) - janaarnoutfaber - 2010-12-16

Well, this distribution broke my appletv.

Reinstalling xbmc using apt-get did not work either. So I guess I will have
to do a reinstall of everything. Updating to a newer ubuntu version results in a
instable environment (sometimes xbmc starts up and sometimes I get a blank screen) Also Crystalhd does not work in maverick.

So if you are able to make a distribution or fix for karmic with XOT working I would be a happy man Smile


- BugBoy - 2010-12-20

I am sorry, but I don't have a Karmic release. If anyone is interested, then I will upload an updated version for XBMC 10.0 (Lucid release) or XBMC Live 10.0 (based on Lucid).

I recompiled XBMC 10 from scratch with libmms 0.6 support, so XOT-UZG is capable to play RTL/NET5/SBS broadcasts as well.

For the not-faint-at-heart guys, I have created a tar that includes the new recompiled XBMC with libmms 0.6. This XBMC version is not fully tested and is only tested on my XBMC 10 live CD installation. If you want to give it a try, issue the following commands:
Code:
$ cd ~
$ wget http://www.ramondeklein.nl/Download/xbmc-10-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ sudo tar -xvz -C / -f xbmc-10-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ rm xbmc-10-with-libmms-0.6.tar.gz
$ sudo reboot

I have only tested it with the original XBMC Live CD (final Dharma release).

I humble question from a worshiping userBlush:
Now when Dharma is official, will XOT be added in the Add-on library any time soon?

No. XOT has it's own repository that you can install:

http://www.rieter.net/pages/XOT:Installation#Install_XOT-Uzg.v3_as_an_Addon

After installing the repository, it will work like the default XBMC repository.

OK, the reason im asking was this i found on the webpage faq:
Quote:Will XOT-Uzg.v3 Support the new Addon Repository feature of XBMC?

Yes, XOT-Uzg.v3 will get an official XBMC Repository so you can update the addon using the XBMC Addon Manager. We are waiting for the official documentation from Team XBMC and will then finalize the current test Repository we have running here.

Well, it's an official XBMC repository, but THE XBMC repository. If you install the XOT repository it will work in the exact same way as the official one. I will update the FAQ.
