This would certainly be a great feature for us swedes. I made a stand alone application to do this back in the myHTPC days. I tried to rewrite it as a MP plugin but after SVT changed their page layout I couldn't get it to work. I tried the xbmc script and it is brilliant, so obviously it is possible anyway! I think I will have another shot at it, I figured a modification to the My Trailers plugin perhaps could serve as the foundation for this plugin... Though I am having problem getting the latest source code right now, perhaps someone also is up for this challenge?

I'm working on one for SVT, have got basic browsing working and can start videos if they are Windows Media format. Can probably get you an early beta within a week or two.

Haven't had time, I'm afraid. Anyway, here is at least something.
Note that there are several errors that need correction:
  • No support for Real Player files.
  • No error message when no Windows Media file exists
  • No OSD visible when playing the videos.
  • List disappears after video has played.
  • Back button does not take you one level up.
You can report other problems and I'll add them to the list.
I also have some plans for enhancements:
  • Skip the buttons to the left and have sort of a "Homepage" instead.
  • Add a bookmark function
  • Show more info about a program if that exists
  • Download images
  • Make a setup screen to configure some things
  • Add popup window for faster navigation
Anything else you want to add to the list?

I don't know when I will have time for corrections/enhancements, don't expect it too soon...

Ahhh, yes...... Ehrm, Yahoo....... All they tried to do was buy out Meedio and make it dissapear. It just forced it underground. Meedio is now FREE and open sourced with a really great team of plugin and theme developers carrying on the project. Basically, it has nothing to do with Yahoo. Go here to find out more: MeediOS |...
