Just really getting started into building my HTPC. I am playing with XBMC and Media Portal. In a lot of ways I like Media Portal but can't figure the answers to a few questions.

Youtube - I can't for the life of me figure out where to enter my id/password for youtube.

Netflix - Can't figure this one out either.

Amazon Video - would be nice but not as important to me as Netflix.

Music/Video Artwork - For some reason I can't get but a few things for artwork on my music and video library. I have also played with Plex, which is xbmc based also and it found artwork for almost everything and I can't figure out why Media Portal can only come up with one or two. XBMC does better but still not as good as Plex. I am hoping someone knowledgeable about these things can tell me more on how to get the most from this.


Since I am in the MP forum. From people who have knowledge of both. Why MP and not XBMC.

My goal is to have PVR, be able to play music/video from my home server, view images. Play DVD and BluRay. and view internet video, youtube, revision 3, netflix..

I am having a hard time trying to figure out what one has over the other. I do like the interface to Frodo and I was at least able to figure out how to log into Youtube. But overall MP has a better feel to it.

    Hi DFergATL,

    I'm on my work now, but to login you need to open the onlinevideo config tool from MEdiaportal configuration. Under the "sites tab" you need to look for YouTube, and there you can login..

    About your other questions, I have no idea how to configure Netflix, but you can search in our forum, and ask it in the right area. Did you have installed the Fanart handler plugin allready? Search for it, and in may solve your problems with covertart etc. For movies your should try the MovingPictures plugin including the IMDB+ plugin to get all right information about the movie..

    Please let me know if you can something with my suggestions. :)

    Good luck!

    I am getting there. I have fixed most of my media data issues. It looks as if there may be someone working on the netflix plugin, not sure though. But I still can't find where to log into youtube. I have attached a jpeg. I must be an idiot but I just can't find it.

    I can even see it on your screenshot. :p the window in the back in the Bottom part. There are 3 entries. One for the user name one for the email and one for the password. :)

    Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

    This seem to happen only occasingly for some users. I never saw it for example with my windows 10 system. As you said it doesn't cause any mis-functionality, it is just annoying. It's on the bugfix agenda for next MP2.4 release. That's correct, there are two options: Using the navigation buttons or the mouse wheel. It's also...

    Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

    There were no changes, but I deactivated online sources, because you tagged the media already. This makes a huge difference.
