I'll continue working on the addon next week (if I have enough time).
And thanks to all other devs for fixing some stuff in the meantime... Smile

"getting rid of chromelauncher":
I don't really see any benefit in moving the code from chrome-launcher directly to netflixbmc.
It does not make anything easier for the user - Chrome Launcher gets installed automatically anyway.
In my opinion, dividing these parts makes sense. Chrome Launcher is not only used by netflixbmc, and it makes sense to have Chrome settings (own profile, custom path) in a separate addon.
Also, a reason for dividing it was to have a separate support thread for anything related to Chrome. It does not really belong here - maybe non netflixbmc users are also interested in the found solutions.
If there are any advantages, please let me know, so I can think about it again.

"submitting to the official repo":
It won't be accepted there because of binary files. And I also think, that it wouldn't be the right place.
In my opinion, only simple addons that run out-of-the-box should be added to it. When default kodi/xbmc users install addons via the official repo, they expect them to work.
This addon needs some special instructions/configuration - as long as playback isn't directly possible via kodi/xbmc, it shouldn't be added to the official repo...

Welcome back!
Great to hear that you will pick up the work on the addon again. Me and some other users rely on the addon and in your absence were looking for some fixes.

About the Chrome launcher integration:
I think personally that this makes things extra difficult for users but maybe you can integrate the settings of chromelauncher with netflixbmc and it's fixed ;-)
Other reason (for me atleast) was to solve my issues with remote control and xbmcbuntu boxes, but offcourse this can also be addressed in the chromelauncher side as long as the integration is well between both...

Repo: Yep, you have a very valid point about that. In that case I think it's better to leave it on your testing repo then.

Can you take a look at the fixes from users Corona, Dis and Jasonpell ? I think they have some very valid ideas to fix things. Also the change to requests by corona can make things a lot faster (as in my experience).

I'm a great fan of your work, me and my family use your addon on a daily base. Glad to see that you haven't left the community ;-)

Will you be willing to accept pull requests from other fans here ?
Maybe discuss the issues in the github support board ?
