Mac OS X - Addons Not installing
#1
New user here so maybe this is something I have missed.

I have installed XBMC version 10.1 on my Macbook pro, I've tried to install Sportsdevil Zip file from my download folder, it clearly see's the Zip file when i try to add it but nothing happens when I click on it ?

Am I doing something wrong ? Do I need to rename the Zip file to something else ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Update to the latest version 11.0 RC2 and try it again. Also just for a heads up this is the iOS section and not the OS X section.

Hi DeanMV, installed the update, went to add-on the zip file but got the following error message "The add-on does not have the correct structure". These zip files are downloaded to my download folder and thats were i'm trying to get them from. Almost getting there.. any ideas.

Is your mac unzipping the addon while downloading it? Thats a common problem

Download the zip choose save as instead of open,
Browse to it from xbmc
Install from zip file


EDIT: I've just tried to install V1.7.2 on my mac with Eden rc2 and it works, I would suggest installing the repo so you can take advantage of auto updates to the addon in the future,

Same as above,

Then go to get addons, choose maxmustermanns addons, then video addons, sportsdevil.

That will install the latest version of the addon

where does the zip come from? are you sure its compatible with Dharma/Eden addon structure?

when I download the file it isn't saving it as zip, so I have to right click the downloaded folder and "Compress it", which turns it into a Zip file. If I try and use the downloaded file as it is saved then it won't see it when trying.

Google sportsdevil, the addon is available from code.google.com etc

Halfway down the page is links to addon zip file and repo zip file...

@amet... With the forum changes what's the stance on posting links like this? (the link to forum rules in your sig is broken) thanks man

Just read nate's post about certain addons etc and decided this needed editing to remove the direct link

I think i've resolved this zip issue, I used firefox to download the zip file instead of Safari? Maybe the compression of the folder was causing an issue..
