    It works fine for me. I just stuck the StreamedMP .xmls in my MediaStream folders and it works like a charm.

    The only problem I've encountered is that search results come up with incorrect file sizes (35gb instead of 350mb, for example), which might or might not be a skinning issue but doesn't really affect anything.

    Background images for MyTorrents are pulled from Mediaportal\skin\MediaStream\Media\Animations\Movies, if you want to change them.

    I just get 'missing or invalid file' when I try to launch the plugin.
    I have placed the .dll's in ..\plugins\windows\
    the skin XML's in to the MediaStream skin folder
    and the myTorrents.xml in the x:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\ folder

    Are these the same locations you used?

    That looks correct. The problem you may be having is that you've entered the wrong Window ID in the MediaStream MyHome config... You're looking for ID 5678.

    If that doesn't work, try downloading the latest version of MyTorrents and replacing all the files. Maybe one of the .dlls didn't get copied over?

    Thanks for your help, I do have the correct Window ID in my MediaStream config, I've updated to version .50 and still get the same.error message.
    I'm at a loss and if my files are in the same location as yours it should work! I may see if I can get it to work on the StreamedMP skin and locate the issue there.

    I'll let you know the outcome.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but do you have uTorrent running and have you configured uTorrent's WebUI? I seem to recall when I was installing it the first time around it wasn't made explicitly clear that this had to be done.

    Hi, yep uTorrent is running and I can browse the webui locally.
    I have tried the plugin with the StreamedMP skin and I get the same.
    I'l have a trawl of the plugin thread and se what turns up.
