OS X python exceptions.TypeError with 12.0-alpha7 oct3
#1
I don't really know if i should file a bug report or not but anyway this is what i am experiencing.

On a macbook 2007 and XBMC (12.0-ALPHA7 Git:20121003-0f21644), Platform: Darwin OSX (11.4.2 i386, Version 10.7.5 (Build 11G56)). Built on Oct 3 2012

Every time I try to run ted talk add-on I get a python error and when i try an eevblog video in the add-on I get the "same" error plus the xbmc gui does not respond afterwards, I have to turn of xbmc through the windowmanager.

these are the relevant error's from the log

I thought it was a problem in my installation for it is a fresh osx install but i tried the build of 15th of september and both error's do not occur.
I understand the error can be either in a wrong use of the variable on the add-on or xbmc changed the way it handles these variables

I hope somebody finds this report usefull if not, give me some hints on how to give you better information.
