is there a way to make the new kodi addon compatible with the xbmc4xbox plugin for youtube?
the media center that started it all they kinda gave up on, xbmc4xbox is cool
only one that doesn't give script errors for me is 3.4.6 youtube script / xbmc version 3.6-DEV-r33024
the script for youtube fails says 0 results on search
i seen the xbox play 480p before just fine its like you guys kept changing everything and gave up on xbox now everywhere is ghost of broken scripts and links even xboxscene.com is smoked
you guys gave xbox hope when microsoft pulled the live plug
now i guess its just up to www.teamxlink.co.uk for halo because even xbconnect is smoked

it is a way to make the new kodi addon compatible with xbmc4xbox.
The problem is that the new youtube addon (and many more addons) use a new framework what is not compatible without work on xbmc4xbox.
It think buzz hat the framework adapted that is work on xbmc4xbox to.

Nobody hat the Time to work on this.

on this time it is better anyone make a youtube addon over the actual youtube api what work as adapting the main kodi youtube addon.

On my xbox the Youtube script from dom not complete work and is very slowly on this what works.

is not a problem to make a new youtube addon for xbmc4xbox.

I've implemented a new yt addon from scratch which has all functions from kodi addon (list videos, search videos, live videos, categories) except login. It looks exactly the same and has performance improvements (maybe x4x version could be quicker than kodi addon on high end pc with same functions).
I hope that the first version is finished on 23.12 because I don't have much time before and after.

The plugin is nearly finished, but I want to put one method into a c library and load it from python using ctypes.

If anybody has some c knowledge and can write a very small string operation method and can compile the dll so that xbmc4xbox python can load it using ctypes please send me a pm.

Good news:
1) I managed to write the windows dll and load it using ctypes in python as a normal 'python function'
2) To my surprise also xbmc4xbox can load the windows dll and yields the same result.

That means I just have to fix some bugs (e.g. xbmc4xbox does not accept None as thumbnail type) and than it is finished.

The plugin can be found here. Finally I had to give up my dll implementation since the last call to a sha1 function was implemented using windows api calls by the programming lannguage authors.
I than ported and slightly edited the relevant video url function from bromix and everything works as expected.

Thanks for the link and clarification, Tim.
I think there's a lot of fun in online gambling. I just want to have fun at casinointheuk online. The total bet is big.
