Plugin for watching videos from TED.com

Quote:TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year's TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.
Version 2.0 Released.

Features:
  • browsing by Theme, Speaker, Newest Talks, or Favorites (requires an ted.com login)

Available via Kodi repository

Hah, nice. I spent the last hour writing my own just to find that it already existed. Oh well, not completly in vain as it was a learning experience that I will use for other scripts aswell..

here's my version:

It lacks some of your features in its current shape, maybe I'll finish it, or maybe I'll just start using yours.

I don't know which is the 'correct' version of this plugin to be using but I couldn't get any of them to work for me; the only one that loaded proceeded to die when you tried clicking on a theme so finally resorted to looking at the ted_talks.py file and there was a problem with the listThemeTalks procedure simply commenting out the following two lines did the trick as the www. doesn't make any difference to the RSS feed URL.

#p=re.compile('//')
#match=p.sub('//www.',match[0])

Thought I'd share this with others who love this plugin but can't seem to get it to work at the moment.

I'm running into a 403 Forbidden error when trying to access this url to download the ted talks plugin - I'd really like to get ted talks working on my XBMC install as I think they are a fantastic resource that I don't spend enough time watching. I think having a slick interface on my TV would encourage me to watch them more frequently...


Any suggestions? Is this project dead? Moved elsewhere? Any help would be appreciated. I apologize if I'm missing something obvious, it's early and I haven't yet had my 2nd coffee.


THanks!

Love the plugin.

Wondering if you can allow the entire title of the speaker show instead of having it cut off and show the ellipsis (...)?

Unfortunately not, it would slow browsing down to a crawl. Blame TED.com.

Two questions:
When you go through the Speakers node, open a speaker and go back, you end up back on the home node (not back in speaker), is it by design?
Would it be possible to use SHIFT keyboard navigation in the speaker list? (ie SHIFT C would go to the first C surname)

Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Done, thanks for pointing these out.

Code:
[TED Talks]
changed: sort listings by label instead of title so jumping via SHIFT+LETTER navigation works.
fixed: Individual Themes & Speakers would return to the main list instead their respective listings.
