[XBox Compatibility] Viewster - Working Plugin

Post by nidge » Fri Jan 09, 2015 3:01 pm

Hi guys, I found this website http://www.viewster.com/
You can LEGALLY stream, in the UK anyway, Movies and TV Shows. Alright not the newest blockbusters, but quite a few titles, including Anime, Drama, Comedy, Sci-Fi and more.
Read the "Welcome to veiwster!" statement at the bottom of the home page for details.

So all you need to sign up is an email address and a password, then you can watch on your PC or Tablet.

BUT, and here's the best bit, IT WORKS ON THE ORIGINAL XBOX!!! :D

You need plugin.video.viewster-1.0.5.zip, download here https://www.dropbox.com/s/f4l8cu3myxwg4 ... 5.zip?dl=0
I created an account on my PC first, then installed the plugin by FTPing to the xbox and unzipping through the Addons4Xbox installer in Programs/Plugins.

Fully working on XBMC4xbox 3.5, at time of writing.

Enjoy :)

Nice!

The download link you posted is no longer working; however, the addon can be found and downloaded it from the Viewster Repo (GitHub); once that is done, you can simply extract it and FTP it to the plugins->video folder in xbmc.

Works flawlessly, with 12MB of memory to spare :D ; just watched two anime episodes. :)

FYI: i don't know what the account will do, perhaps more options, but I've played videos without one... that's not to discourage anyone from creating one, I just didn't need it for my testing purposes.

Addon : Viewster
Version: 1.0.6
Repo : https://github.com/learningit/plugin.video.viewster
source : http://www.viewster.com/

Also, for future reference; if you can, add the prefix [XBOX Compatability] in subject's title for clarity; I've changed the title for your convenience...

Thanks for the information; much obliged.

Regards,

Dom DXecutioner

Thanks Dom :D

Don't know why my link stopped working? But the one below should be ok.

Let me know if it doesn't?

I signed up for Viewster on my PC first, but I think you are right it works without :)
Not noticed any advantage with signing up myself though?

Thanks for the new link, can't hurt to have two available :)
Just noticed yours is newer ;)

Viewster is working on XBMC4Xbox 3.5.3 :)

However the audio seems to be out of sync? I've tried altering the settings by changing the audio delay, but it doesn't seem to help that much :(
Does screen resolution have an impact on the sound? My Xbox is set to HD 720p.

It's uncertain; there's only one way to find out, give it a try and let us know...
