Release NFL Teams
#1
I have just finalized the first version, v1.0.0, of my NFL Videos addon. It plays videos from all sites for the 32 teams in the NFL. For now you can get it from GitHub, I would like to hear if anybody experience any problems with it before submitting it to the repository:
https://github.com/Tenzer/plugin.video.n...v1.0.1.zip

One of the non-optimal things I have noticed, it that some of the videos buffer for a long time before starting. It seems to be because the CDN hosting the videos tell XBMC the file is 2 GB large, which it really isn't, so XBMC starts to download the file and expects to download a whole lot more than what the video actually fills. I don't know of any way I can improve on this, so the workaround I have been using is to press "Play" when the video has been buffering for a bit and then it works just fine.

I would like to know if any of you experience a lot of buffering during the video watching, as I have tried to make the addon play videos in the highest quality possible. This means it will go up to around 3 Mbit for the 720p streams. I didn't experience issues with this myself, but if it is a problem for other people, I might consider making a setting to limit the maximum quality of the streams.

Other than that I hope you like it!

Works good.

Any plans to work on a NFL GamePass add-on?

Hi, this is a really nice add-on. I had done something similar with the team sites in my NFL.com add-on but decided, in the new version to leave it out, in favor of this add-on.

Maybe we should collaborateHuh My latest code is here > https://github.com/divingmule/plugin.video.nfl.com

Thank you guys for the feedback. I have just uploaded a new version where the addon has been renamed to better show what the addon does. Link is in the original post.
I am also working on getting the addon included in the repository.

Not really, Gamepass uses a completely different video system, I believe it chops up the stream in a lot of small bits that has to be played as one long stream. I'm not sure it is possible for me to get XBMC to play the stream properly. Also there's the authentication system which has to be worked around.

Wow, thank you!
I don't really think the video systems from the team sites has much in common with the one at NFL.com, so I think it's best to keep them separate. But I'll have a look at your addon and see if I can help out in any way.

Tenzer, I love the addon, except I have terribly slow internet. Can you possibly add a bitrate selection option in the add on settings. I tried looking at the code but since I know little python I made no progress Smile If you have no interest on doing so, could you at least point me in the direction as to where I could manually hard code for a slower internet connection. Thanks again!

mrdally204: I'll have a look at adding the option. For your (and my own Wink) reference, the code for selecting the bitrate is these lines: https://github.com/Tenzer/plugin.video.n...py#L38-L42

divingmule and I are working on a Game Pass plugin. It's very early in development and has bugs, but it works.

We'd love to have some help for those interested in pitching in.

Cool Alex! I'll have to try out that addon the next time I'm going to use my Game Pass subscription. I have added links to the NFL.com and Game Pass addons to the readme file of my addon, just to make people aware that there are multiple NFL related addons.

Hi Tenzer -

I've taken the liberty of adding Bitrate support in settings. By default, it'll be set to High, but you can set it to either Medium or Low. I just set arbitrary ranges for these, as I don't really know what constitutes "Low" or "High" bitrate. There's a pull request waiting for you in the master branch of your repository. Hopefully, this will solve mrdally204's problem Smile Also, I noticed there were issues playing videos from NFL Network sources.

This is not working on Gotham. Will you update it?
Thank you

Great addon. Is there a way to open directly to your teams videos instead of always having to chose your team each time the addon is opened?

I think this addon is dead. There has been a pull request waiting to be merged since October. No word from the author.
