**RESOLVED**Re: Python scripts not working after update to 3

RESOLVED

Thanks for the link Dan Dar3. I ended up fixing the plugin by copying the /User Data/plugin_data/Music files from my Beta 2 install, into the latest build. Now it works again. Still unsure why a fresh install could not create new preferences.... But it's working so I'm happy :)

Re: Python scripts not working after update to 32836

OK. So I FTP'd a fresh copy of 32836 over, ensuring that the hidden /scripts/.modules folder was included. That solved the majority of problems... most plugins including Youtube now work as they did before - with the exception of JazzRadio.com. This audio streaming plugin was working perfectly in 3....

Re: Python scripts not working after update to 32836

Thanks buzz. I remember I had an issue with hidden files not transferring over FTP once before. I'll check this out.

Apologies for the log file... I realized after I had posted. I'll use the appropriate method in the future.

Thanks.

Re: Python scripts not working after update to 32836

I just tried again with a fresh install of 32836... No previous preferences or plugins transferred. When I try and open Addons4Xbox Installer I receive message "xbmcaddon Library is missing. The version of XBMC4XBOX you are running is probably too old"

Python scripts not working after update to 32836

Hey Guys! i just updated from 3.5 beta 2 up to the latest nightly build 32836. I noticed that most of my plugins stopped working after the upgrade giving script failed message. (including youtube and jazzradio.com). (The Trailers still works). Tried removing and reinstalling plugins.... but still ge...

Re: "Fuzzy" .264's

Oh. I should note that not ALL H264 files I have display this build up fuzz over 8-12 secs then clear. Not sure, but I think it may be more noticeable on video files with a lower data rate. I have a whole collection of files encoded with quicktime that use the h264 codec and a video data rate of abo...

Re: "Fuzzy" .264's

I've experienced this with files encoded with 264 codec (regardless of container MKV or mp4). For me, it only occurred when using this setting: SETTINGS | VIDEOS | PLAYBACK | H.264 Skip Loop Filter ....... "Skip Everything" or "Skip Non Key Frames" If I use any other preset for the h264 skip loop fi...

Thanks again! Now that I've got it running - is Youtube 3.3.1 from the xbmc4xbox add-ons repo the best option? I notice the xbmc.org repo has youtube 3.4.6

Re: Youtube 3.3.1 Script Failed

Sorry... My ftp client was not showing them as they are hidden/invisible. Hmmm, wonder if there are other 'hidden' files my ftp client did not copy over?! I'm on Mac so anything preempted with "." is hidden by default. In this case the .modules folder. Copied them manually, and now it seems to be wo...

Re: Youtube 3.3.1 Script Failed

I had the same error trying to install youtube with 3.3. I did have youtube running on a previous build, can't remember how far back.. Maybe 3.2.1 ...but it's long been deleted. Can someone perhaps post the script.module.xbmcaddon file and I'll just ftp that over manually... See if that fixes it...

Your right. I don't have Apps/XBMC/scripts/.modules/script.module.xbmcaddon. The only files in my .modules folder are: script.common.plugin.cache script.module.parsedom script.module.simplejson script.module.xbmcvfs There are no files in the xbmc/scripts/ folder from the downloaded zip of 3.3.1 (or ...

Youtube 3.3.1 Script Failed

I'm just updated to XBMC4XBOX 3.3.1. I installed Youtube 3.3.1 using the Addons4Xbox Installer - XBMC4XBox Addons. It seems to install normally - but when I try to run it, I get Error - Script Failed! : YouTube. Not sure what I've done wrong. I have another plugin (The Trailers), which is working fi...

Re: Handbrake Preset for XBMC4XBOX

Just a note on something I've just noticed. I noticed the xbox was showing the video codec as "MPEG4" for the files encoded with FFMPEG using the command line. Other files in my library were showing as AVC1/0x31637661. I've read up that AVC1 is essentially the h264 codec. My original encodes that ha...

Hey bigkidoz. I actually didn't order another cable as I'm going back overseas at the end of the month for work, and didn't think it would arrive in time.

Re: Handbrake Preset for XBMC4XBOX

Its a good point. In my case, the original files used AAC audio, stereo, 48000 128kb. So using this command keeps the original audio and just re encodes the video stream. The thread I was directed to for this ffmpeg command http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6120#p6120 indicates it wa...

Re: What movie format do you use?

If you use the above ffmpeg command line, you can lower the file size by lowering the video data rate. The video data rate in this example is 3000k (or approx 3mb/s). (This is the ideal setting for balancing quality/performance). If you lower this number, you will lower the resulting videos file siz...

Re: Handbrake Preset for XBMC4XBOX

Ok, this ffmpeg command line is spot on. Quality is excellent, no blockiness, doesn't matter what I have the H264 skip loop filter set to, it still plays smooth without dropped frames. It encodes 4 times faster than handbrake did AND the end file was almost identical in size to the original mp4 file...
