[RELEASE] NetfliXBMC - Unofficial Netflix Add-on (Win/OSX/Linux)
I created an account so I could thank the dev for their work on this add-on. It is really useful.

One question I have for anyone is whether the metadata is only scraped in a low resolution. Or is this a problem on my end with how I have configured things? Thanks for any response.

Hi, have some options disappeared from the remote configuration utility?

I don't have the option of mapping volume keys now for example.
Also pause has defaulted so that it opens a printer dialoig and sends the screen to my printer

Cheers

Kevin

No need to start a separate copy of Lirc just for netflix. I run irxevent and irexec in the background to start/kill Kodi anyway, and I just put in specific entries for Chrome to control netflix (and CTRL-W to kill it). Works fine.

This is actually the main reason why I don't use a Flirc on my linux install; I haven't found a solid way to start a shell script from a keyboard command in X and remap inside various programs. Lirc sucks, but it is much more flexible. I did a bunch of research, too.

Hi all,

I'm on XBMC 13.2 with latest (64 bit) Chrome and using Chrome Launcher 1.1.1 and NetfliXMBC 1.3.8 on Mac OS X (Yosemite).

Has anyone seen this error: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uqdd3tnamz3zxp...0.png?dl=0 which takes you here: https://help.netflix.com/en/node/14759

Netflix is complaining that the WidevineCdm component isn't working properly - I've checked in my normal Chrome browser, and it's up to date and working.

Netlfix runs fine in my normal Chrome browser - I'm guessing this is related to Kiosk mode?

Has anyone seen this before? Any hints or help?

Thanks!

Care to post your config? Would be interested to see how you did it. I had trouble restricting the config to just netflix when I deployed it globally.

Drats, yep I've seen that while I was initially putting the canned user-data-dir together. I thought I had got the WidevineCdm back into it properly, but clearly not.
Until I get a chance to fix it, running this in terminal will hopefully get you up and going:

Code:
cp -a ~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/WidevineCDM/* ~/Library/Application\ Support/Kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.video.netflixbmc/chrome-user-data/WidevineCDM/

However it sounds like you'll need to change Kodi in the destination path to xbmc - I'm running on Kodi rc on my mac.

Ah... I gladly moved away from lirc a few years ago now, it was always a headache to deal with.
The kernel rc support is so much nicer, all the key remapping I need in a single config file in etc and then the remote just acts like a normal keyboard - much easier. I've picked up a couple of $20 'mce' style remotes&usb receivers on ebay, the advantage of them being the receivers have been multi-protocol so the one receiver has worked well with multiple disparate remotes.

With lirc though, are you using a script similar to this? http://tv-true.org/how-to/youtube-leanba...ythtv.html

Rather than a separate bash script, we could just have an entry in settings to specify a lircrc file to point towards and start/stop lirc around chrome internally. With irexec it's then basically acting like a keyboard anyway.

I am playing around with getting the kernel rc stuff working with xbmc. Can you recommend any good tutorials especially for mapping things like KEY_OK and KEY_EXIT to appropriate xbmc ones

I remap any keys like those to more normal keyboard ones, ie KEY_OK -> Space and KEY_EXIT -> Escape.
I'm coming from a mythtv background though (~10 year), and have only been using xbmc regularly for about 6 months. To ease this transition with my partner I've put a lot of work into making my xbmc behave more like myth, so my key choices reflect that.

Basically I have a modified rc script in /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce with keymaps for my two main remotes (I've got three floating around that get used interchangeably)
http://pastebin.com/qNxyXzMf
I then force this script to get loaded at startup, as I had problems making it work automatically:
/etc/rc.local :
Code:
/usr/bin/ir-keytable -P 1000 -c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce
There's also ways to ensure this gets run via udev etc so that it's right after receiver is unplugged/replugged but I'm not sure that I've bothered with that at the moment, can't remember for sure.
This is all dependent on the receiver having right drivers etc.
Code:
ir-keytable
with no arguments will print out any it finds. Then with -t to get printouts of keypresses to match up with what's desired in the config file.

Hi,

But the Space bar will not activate a menu option in XBMC. So do you have a lircmap.xml as well? Can you share that.

I have a HP Media Centre receiver and keys like the OK button and the back button and volume up / down are not recognised by XBMC with the linux kernel ir support. I enabled debugging in XBMC and they are not even recognised by xbmc as key presses.

11:45:14 T:139765148841920 DEBUG: OnKey: 0 (0xf200) pressed, action is

This is why I use lirc, as after deploying the config file it just worked with xbmc without having to modify any xbmc config files.

I am going to keep trying to figure this out, but its not positive so far

Well you can certainly modify the rc_mce file as much as desired to map buttons to desired keypresses, the standard thing to do is modify that instead of using lirc to map keys.

As part of making my xbmc more myth compatible I've got a heavily modified keymap as well as my own skin with extra layout and key changes. I originally had remotes set up for myth, and then I configured xbmc to match myth's keymaps.

But yeah, rather than mapping OK to space, set it to enter, or whatever is the default key for the desired action.

It does not work I think due to issue mapping key codes > 255 in x11 which apparently is broken.

Yes, that problem is very well known (and one of things hopefully to be fixed one day via wayland or similar).

This is basically why you have to remap the keys at all, KEY_OK, KEY_EXIT and the like are > 255, hence remapping them down lower to more typical keypresses like space, enter, escape etc which are < 255.
Basically you can map them to any key you see on a typical media keyboard, so querty, keypad, Fn keys and play/pause/volup/voldown etc.

I didn't have a chrome-user-data folder in my plugin.video.netflixbmc directory, so I created it, and then copied the WidevineCDM folder from /Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/WidevineCDM/

Unfortunately, it still doesn't work. Any other hints to try? If necessary, I think I can upgrade to a Kodi RC (I'm using MySQL to sync my backends and am just conservative about RCs in general)

I will submit a patch to load lirc and then kill it after instead of the browser script. I still think lirc is more complete than kernel ir support

Oh, I've run ahead of you.... I just realised you're on the released version, not the one with my new user-data-dir stuff.... so yeah my suggestion is not right. If you go to the settings for chrome launcher, is it set to use its own profile? If so, try copying the WidevineCDM folder to userdata/addon_data/plugin.program.chrome.launcher/profile/
Or delete the userdata/addon_data/plugin.program.chrome.launcher/profile altogether and give it another try.
If the setting is not on, maybe try turning that setting on and seeing if it works.
