Release PBS Kids Video Addon
#31
Hey t1m, I owe you a ton for how awesome this plugin has been for my kid and I. I honestly can't begin to say. It's really been a lifesaver. We've been using it for the past 3 years or so.

The plugin has been crashing the last few days, both on my raspberri pi and on this laptop, so I spent some time getting logfiles together and made this account to post.

Here's the pastbin:  https://pastebin.com/ETCBkQrD

Let me know what else I can provide.

Thank you!

Hi,

So are you looking into it?

For more details, it started failing a couple of weeks ago. I didn't do any update on my Windows Kodi  (17.6, from Dec-10-2017)

I'm connecting via VPN. I can access the videos from pbskids.org just fine

I am looking into this. It looks like the website is still changing. I will release a fixed version once it settles down.

Still not working
Can I assume is no longer supported? ;-(

You can always do your own fix if you can't be patient.

I have been and will be traveling in a part of the world that makes testing fixes for this add-on difficult. There are several changes that need to be made for Passport accounts as well as a new version of the API. Folks just need to be patient.

Sorry.. I didn't mean to be impatient. Just didn't see your answer.
If it's not much to ask, just send an update in a few weeks if you cannot manage. Just so we know if we have to wait or not some more

Your support is much appreciated!

Version 3.0.5 fixes current issues.
A Pull Request has been issued for the kodi.org repo.
The add-on should update in a few days.

So there's an "always on" live stream of PBS Kids at the http://pbskids.org/video/livetv website. Would it be possible to add this stream to the app? If not, can someone help me extract the link to the stream so I can make a shortcut to it in Kodi?

Thanks.

I will add the stream in an update.

@learningit I am having an issue where PBS Kids is not launching on my kodi machine anymore.  The debug log is here:

I see I'm not the only one.  I took a look at the source code for the addon and the webpage it's loading doesn't contain the list of every show.

It looks like it should be loading https://content.services.pbskids.org/v2/...sorg/home/ which returns a json response with the kind of info it'd need for every show such as the show name, images, the "slug".  The shows are put into 3 tiers

I'm not the best one to change it as I'm not familiar with the kodi addon api or python, and how to get the patch it into whatever repository.

I changed the source to fix the 1st screen of the addon.  Only the 1st screen that shows the list of PBS kids shows was changed.  Tested it a little on Krypton on windows, and Leia on a raspberry pi.

If you're feeling lucky you can try fixing it yourself.
My working version is at [Code link removed by Mod, out of date with current kodi.org repo version]

You'd install it by renaming and then replacing the installed add-on's python script in your kodi directory Kodi/addons/plugin.video.pbskids/resources/lib/scraper.py 
If you need help finding it, it might be in the addon folder that's one directory up from the userdata folder in this wiki https://kodi.wiki/view/Userdata

---
If anyone looks through the changed code able to add it to the repository, I'm guessing that a few things could be cleaned up.  the old "getAddonMenu" was the only thing using regular expressions and htmlparser and could be removed.  I also added a log function that I stopped using when everything worked.
