    Rockstar is not compatible with MediaPortal since MP 1.17Pre. The developers of MP have not bumped the compatibility version for plugins using the External Bass player subsystem. If this had been done when upgrading Bass Player in MediaPortal, Rockstar would have been marked as incompatible until the plugin is updated to the new version of Bass.

    @Developers update CompatibilityInfo or don't use it and remove it completely.

    Hi All,

    I took the liberty of (partly) reverse engineering this plugin to get it working with 1.17/1.18.
    An exception catch has been added to the playlist routine to prevent a crash to desktop, but the playlist functionality is still broken (I need the original source code for that)
    Local default playlist works o.k.

    Why source is not full after decompiling? C# is known to be very reversible...
    What soft did you use?

    I use RedGate .NET Reflector, among other tools.
    The reversibility of compiled code is (obviously) hugely dependent on the complexity of said code. In the case of this plugin, the programmer has made things quite complex by incorporating the complete source code of the libraries he used into his program (Torshify, NLog, RdioSharp,NewtonSoft Json and he even mirrored some native windows system libraries like system.collections).

    Best regards,

    Hi Seco,
    Thanks for publishing the source (any change to the code will of course be done by proper pull and/or merge request).
    I noticed though that the source-code in the repository does not match with the latest binary supplied (2.5.4.0), in particular regarding calls to RdioSharp.RdioManager. Did you add custom methods (like ResolvePlayback) or is there an other source available online for RdioSharp except for the one on GitHub?
    I understand that most of these methods/functions are depreciated or even downright fail due to changes in the GrooveShark API and Rdio being discontinued, but it would be of great if I can start out just compiling the source and focus on Spotify functionality instead of having to clear out all calls to these non-available methods and functions (I'm not a great coder to begin with).
