[RELEASE] 4Players Videos
#1
Hi,

Image

as requested I created a video plugin for the videos from http://www.4players.de. With this addon you can watch trailers and videos about computer and console games. Most of them are delivered in a very good quality (720p).

I would be very happy if you could test it and provide feedback - feature requests (if possible) and bug reports are more than welcome Wink

For now you can download it here: https://github.com/downloads/dersphere/p...-0.1.1.zip

When its feature-complete and bugfree it will be available via the official xbmc.org addon repository.
Update: The Addon is now present in the official XBMC.org Addon Repository for Dharma and Eden-pre.

Installed and tested so far:
Installation from ZIP file: OK.
Playing PC videos: Excellent quality Big Grin
Fast forward, fast rewind: OK.
Pause video, play again: OK.

Everything works like a charm Big Grin. Great work. Thanks a lot.

A little remark/change request: Perhaps it could be possible to show one or two great thumbnail(s) for a video instead of 4 or 5 little ones in a row where I can't see any details on my Bravia TV.

Hi,

thanks for testing (again) ;-)

regarding your request, my addon just passes the thumbnails from the website. The website uses javascript to iterate through the thumbnails which isn't possible with xbmc at the moment. I see no way of changing the thumbnails to be different at the moment, sorry.

Hi sphere,

get again an "Script error!: addon.py" error. I think they changed the site.
Could you please check it? Thanks a lot.
Have you found some time to look at the pcgames videos under http://www.pcgames.de/feed.cfm?menu_alias=Videos?

Hi,

I fixed the addon and also added a few new features.

Changelog is:
- Fixed scraper (Website changes)
- Now showing 50 items per page (before was 20)
- Now using 160x90px thumbnails
- added sort methods (playlist, date and runtime)
- added is_update function (pagination is better now)


You can download it here: https://github.com/downloads/dersphere/p...-0.1.2.zip

Please report back if it works now - then I will request a pull to the official repo.

thanks,
sphere

The pagination is very user friendly at the top of each page and the thumbnails now have a perfect size.
...and the main thing: the plugin works great. I tested about 10 videos and all were played perfectly. Thanks Big Grin
Only one question: Where can I change the sort method ? Or isn't this possible?

Hi,
thanks for the report.
Where you can change the sort method is skin dependent. With Confluence you have to press <left> to see the sidemenu. In the sidemenu you can change the sort method.
Implemented are the following sort methods:
- Playlist (like in webpage)
- Date
- Runtime

But please keep in mind that the sort method only affects a single page!

Sorry. Doesn't work for me.
