Hello folks,

I made a video addon for the dutch gaming site Gamekings (http://www.gamekings.tv)

[Image: icon.png]

It's available as a video addon in the official kodi repo. So you can install it as a video addon: HOW-TO:Install_add-ons (wiki)

If you got problems with the addon, just reply here with a link to a kodi log file (here are the instructions to make a logfile with kodi: http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Easy ).

First of all, thanks for writing this plugin!
I'm using it in XBMC on an Apple TV 2 and i'm experiencing a problem that already occurred in the Gamekings plugin i used a while back within Navi-X, namely that the video and audio are out of sync. This problem so far only occurs in the Gamekings plugin. It's so bad, that it isn't watchable and i tend to switch to a laptop to watch the vids.

Any idea what may cause this problem? Are other people experiencing this problem?

Did a fresh install of XBMCbuntu 13.0 Gotham today. The Gamekings add-on isn't working properly anymore for me. I'm getting an error message saying "Error playing media file." after selecting a video to play. Am I doing something, or something changed on gamekings.tv? Perhaps a compatibility issue with Gotham?

Hi there. Is something changed on the website recently? I'm missing an epiode in Kodi and it shows wrong images next to the episode. Also, I discovered that the latest episode isn't showing up in Kodi.
