    Hi Stepko,

    I tried to use your new dll and xml (V0.36), but it broke online videos completely for me. Now none of the sites work. When I checked the MP logs, I see that the old DLL will use either the FLV player, or M-Player (if you check the M-Player box in the config), but your new plugin seems to ignore the M-Player setting and just tries to use the internal player all the time.

    Now, as to why the internal player isn't working that's another story, which I'll keep working on, but it would be nice if the new plugin would continue to use the external players.


    OK, got FLV's working with the internal player (got the updated FLV Splitter), disabled all the external players in the MP plugins (FLV and MPlayer) and it all works now with the new DLL. The only exception is Yahoo Music Videos, which is generating a "500 Internal Server error" on its requests to the yahoo server. Double checked this by plugging the requested URL into IE. So looks like the API for Yahoo needs updating. Attached log file shows the 500 Error.

    The most important tip is that if you use the new DLL, disable all the external player plugins, and uncheck "use MPlayer".

    I have a question about Gametrailers. Why don't HD material work?
    Does it use Mov, Wmv or Flash as it's source?

    Thanks a lot Stepko and globaldonkey, I already disabled the plugin because it was not functioning, but now with your help it works flawless again! In fact it works even better than before, using the internal player instead of mplayer :)

    in the logs i get the following error

    Hey peps.. It is so good to see development still going on this plugin, if this was developed correctly it would be an absolute showstopper!!! Introduce Miro and you are on your way!!!

    Maybe you can update the name of this post from
    Online Videos v0.33 (03/18/2008) - Updated 03/19
    Online Videos v0.36 (09/16/2008)

    because now we have a thread called 'Online Videos v0.32 (v0.32 01-28-2008)' (which is old and should be closed)
    and we have a thread that's called Online Videos v0.33 (03/18/2008) - Updated 03/19 which contains v0.36 updated on 09/16/2008.

    As you can imagine this is not good for consistancy and causes confusion.
