    I havent traced back the old post, but assuming your the coder on onlinevideos, does HULU use a special flash that does Real Time Streaming? Anything I could help with? I am an C# coder, maybe not an expect but have some knowledge... atleast I like to think I do.. hehe :D

    I'm by no means an expert either. I picked up C# programming just so I could write Mediaportal plugins.

    I have tried to play a Hulu video using players that supposedly support RTMP like the latest VLC player and JW FLV player (JW FLV Media Player | LongTail Video) but none of them will play it. XBMC has a hulu plugin now. I looked at the python code and they are setting the hulu swf player as a parameter on the xbmc built-in player. I'm guessing that's how they are able to play hulu videos.

    Oh it is so good to see some interest back in this plugin.... Yeah really is needed as Joost TV is no longer so there goes most of my HTPC content... Yeah I reakon Voah would be a good one to get back, that site has a good amount of content.. Google video is also good... Thanks again man for jumping back in... If there is any thing I can do, beta testing or a little skin design, more than happy.. Thanks

    In was inevitable. Earlier in this thread I suggested trimming down the number of supported sites, but I did point out people would start asking for more. Now it's me! How about tvshack.net? It seems kinda like hulu and works internationally.

    thanks!

    Hi gregmac45,

    thank you for you nice plugin. I just would have one small wish:

    Can you add support for the videolan plugin? There is only a small change needed

    for example I changed like this to use the vlc plugin to play youtube flvs

    //g_Player.PlayVideoStream(lsUrl, foListItem.Title);
    g_Player.Play(lsUrl,g_Player.MediaType.Video);


    Have a merry Christmas.

    Regards
    kroko

    As pointed out in the previous tread it would be nice if you would allow skinners to place content of filmstrip/list/icons differently. Which is impossible as things are now, because you access the id's of the labels.

    I'll be glad to change the code but I'm not quite sure what you mean. Can you give me an example?

    Yeah :)

    In this code:

    <control>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>23</id>
    <label></label>
    </control>

    Instead of

    GUIControl.SetControlLabel(0, 23, "Here's the text");

    try using

    GUIPropertyManager.SetProperty("#mylabel", "Here's the text");

    Consider this a suggestion...take a look at how Moving Pictures or MesFilm are coded. You can download the sourcecode for the both of them.

    This way I can have four labels on the screen, differently placed and with conditional visibility.

    Happy coding :p

    Correct, using the Hulu SWF is about the only way to do this. Their SWF contains (among other things) all of the controls for playback including setting resolution (SD/HD) and playing in Full Screen. Trying to extract stream addresses is fruitless and unecessary...let's just plop it into a Flash container and it should work fine in MP.
