@sully: How it works currently on the XBMC/Plex plugin: 1) The very first time it parse through all 3000+ videos and stores there info ( resulting in very long load times, because it req. many calls to the api ) 2) Subsequently very time you start the the plugin after that, it only adds new videos ( results in a very short load time, because it usually only req. 1-2 call to the api )
Im not sure that this can be done any faster, but if you have an idea, Im all ears.
How it works on the Boxee plugin: 1) There is no data file 2) Start of plugins is very fast 3) Every category calls a search query in the API , a search query gives 20 videos pr call ( load times depend on number of videos in categorie )
@sully: Cool dude I will take you addon.py and create a zip file people can use for AppleTV
"NOTICE: ERROR IN DATA FILE " should only appear the very first time you start the plugin. If this happens all the time it should be addressed. The problem with this is that the startup will take a very long time.
@sully:@Ceramicsteve: unfortunatelyI don't own an AppleTV, so this is a little hard for me to test. Have you tried moving the folder "whimai" from "resources/lib" to " /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/addons/plugin.video.giantbomb/" ?
