Release PCloud.com video streaming (useful for VCast.it)

Hi @mrah ,
Quote:would it be possible to make the plugin available also as a Music add-on? I have my music library stored in pCloud and would love to use Kodi as the media player. From the thread I saw that pcloud add-on recognizes audio formats such as mp3, but Kodi cannot use it as a source for audio, only pictures and video. In my library I have primarily FLAC, AAC and MP3 files.

Sure, I will look into it as soon as I find a moment.

Kind regards,

Guido

Hi @mrah ,

I have released version 1.4.1 of the add-on that makes it available as a Music plugin, too. You may download it from the releases page, or wait until it's published on the Kodi plugin repo.

Kind regards,

Guido

Hi Guido,

Super big thanks for making this update so quickly! I tested it with my Mac laptop and works like a charm Smile However, with my android TV I will need to wait until it's available in the repo.

An additional questions though: Is it possible to make pcloud available as a library source in Kodi? Now I can browse pcloud and stream media files but having pcloud as a library source would make browsing media a way more easy and appealing.

Thanks,
Martti

Hi @mrah ,

you're very welcome! Glad it works.
Concerning your additional query:
Quote:Is it possible to make pcloud available as a library source in Kodi? Now I can browse pcloud and stream media files but having pcloud as a library source would make browsing media a way more easy and appealing.

It's a good question - have never considered it. But it does make sense. I will look into how easy or hard it is to do and then will report back here.

Kind regards,

Guido

Hi. Can you say something about Crypto Folder for your addon?

I realize I really do not know what a "library source" is exactly. Would you care providing some examples of other plugins that are "library sources" so I can take a look at how they operate and how they are implemented?

Kind regards,

Guido

Hi @rene1980 

I replied to this question on the GitHub ticket you raised -- you may have missed it. Here it is: https://github.com/gdomenici/plugin.vide...-593918633

In a nutshell, alas this cannot be done unless PCloud opens up the client side crypto implementation, which apparently they're not planning to do. Sorry.

Kind regards,

Guido

Hi @mrah 

I have looked further into your request:

It turns out, it is possible already, albeit with a little editing. If you edit the sources.xml file (located in the userdata folder), you can add this block:


    <video>
        <default pathversion="1"></default>
        <source>
            <name>PCloud Video Streaming plugin</name>
            <path pathversion="1">plugin://plugin.video.pcloud-video-streaming/</path>
            <allowsharing>true</allowsharing>
        </source>
        <source>
            <name>Some other source...</name>
            <path pathversion="1">C:\Users\myuser\Videos\</path>
            <allowsharing>true</allowsharing>
        </source>
    </video>
This enables one to see the PCloud Streaming Video plugin when adding media sources:

Could that work?

Kind regards,

Hi Guido,
just tried that idea. It does display pcloud now in the list of video sources, but it will not be scanned successfully by Kodi as such. 
If it not possible to expose pcloud or a sub-folder directly as media source for Kodi, maybe you could make use of the strm file method. This is how it is done by the Google Drive add-on.
Anyway, thanks for making your add-on available. It's highly appreciated. Any way to donate you a beer?

Hi again,
might be interesting for some: I found a workaround for now via webdav (https://webdav.pcloud.com:443). It's a terrible slow protocol, but it does work for streaming media of my pcloud storage to my AndroidTV via Kodi with correct library integration.

@gdomenici the source allows you to scan it and add the movies or other files to you library by telling it what type of content is in the source, here is how the Gdrive add on does it: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2861211

and the Kodi wiki: https://kodi.wiki/view/Adding_video_sources

thanks!
