[RELEASE] SVT Play (Plugin) Video Addon - Sveriges Television (Swedish TV)
(2014-06-12, 13:05)retroflex Wrote: I'm not getting any fanart on SVT Play, is that normal? Posters work good and playing content works fine. I'm using the latest version, Gotham 13.1 and tried different skins.

There are no other images to fetch than the tumbnails. Hence, no fanart. Tried duplicating the thumb to fanart but I deemed that too ugly.
Let me know if you have suggestions for fanart!
I haven't found any other images to fetch easily.

Note! "thumbnail" is a data attribute of a video file (article) on SVT Play and is easy to fetch.

Excuse me for being stupid, but what is "fanart" really?

And while I am at writing a post:

Navigation in SVTplay
The stock SVTplay add-on does not give a quick selection once the "PROGRAMS A-Ö" menu item has been chosen.
After this there only an alphabetically sorted list of ALL programs available on SVT that is shown 9 items on each page.
Since the list contains possibly more than a hundred items it is very hard to navigate.
Why not put a selector on screen where one can select the starting letter of the program and then the list jumps to the first item matching that letter?

When one opens SVTplay in XOT a list of available programs is shown again with 9 items per page.
Here there is no intermediate meny to select the way the programs are to be displayed...

Please add a line of letters to choose from as a speed-navigator.
Or invent something else to help navigation.

It already exists. Look in the add-on settings.

I activated the letter item and the result was like this after selecting "PROGRAM A-Ö":
Code:
..
(i.e. now the list is completely empty and there is no sign of any quick select letters).
SVTplay reports version 4.0.1

And I restarted the Pi first whereupon it updated XBMC....

After switching off the letter setting the program list now populates with ALL of the available programs as described before (50+ items for letters A and B, total about 400-500 items).

Sorry, I forgot. The grouping is broken in 4.0.1 but is fixed in 4.0.2 that will be released this weekend. Wait for that one and see if it fixes your issue.

Any news about a release of 4.0.2?

It was released 14/6: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/gotham/
If you are running an "always-on" XBMC instance/device you might need to reboot for the addon auto-update to work(?).

Thanks, got it.

Is the thumb the 992x558 px image? For example:

Video: http://www.svtplay.se/video/1377308/biet...starvingar
Image: http://www.svt.se/barnkanalen/cachable_i...ault_title

I tried enlarging it and it didn't look too bad on a monitor. But perhaps it looks worse on a large TV...

Anyway, I also found this, but that didn't help much:

No, that is not it. The image the addon is fetching is for listings. For example; look at "Senaste program" on the frontpage (svtplay.se). Those images are the ones that we can fetch easily without recursively scanning each item and causing long load times. These images are mostly called "affisch". The one you posted is called "default_title" and is only (easily) available on the video page (not the lisitng page). Unfortunately the URLs for images are not logical so you can not guess the "default_title" image URL based on the "affisch" URL.

Example:
"affisch": http://www.svt.se/cachable_image/1402565...ffisch.jpg
"default_title": http://www.svt.se/cachable_image/1402819...ault_title

Again, scanning each video title in a list for its "default_title" image seems like a task where value is very low compared to the effort/load time.

I tried changing the URL in your "affisch" example from "medium" to "extralarge" and that seemed to give a higher res image:
http://www.svt.se/cachable_image/1402565...ffisch.jpg

Could that be used?

I looked at the code a bit and saw that the extralarge image is indeed always used when available. I added:
Code:
li.setProperty('fanart_image', thumbnail)
next to:
Code:
li.setThumbnailImage(thumbnail)
and fanart shows up. I guess this is what you've tested before too. Looks ok (at least on my laptop) when there are extralarge images available, which there seems to be for most programs. I'll test it on my TV too later.

Anyway, thanks for the work on this great plugin Smile

Haha good timing! Smile
Tested that again last night with the new image size being available "extralarge_imax". However, I think it looks both ugly and annoying when using anything else than "List" as your list view. Attached a screenshot when using "Media Info 2" that I took this morning from an XBMC instance running at 1920x1080.

Will see if I can make it an option in the settings. Will get back here with results.

Well, that went quick. Added the feature; "Display icon as fanart". It will be rolled out in the next release during the weekend.

Great, thanks! Very quick work Smile

I'm using Trasparency / list view which fills most of the screen with fan art so it looks a bit empty without it.

Can anyone confirm that this* is an issue on ATV2 running XBMC 13.1 and SVT Play 4.0.3?
