A quick look in the new views

As you might have seen in the changelog, this version features a new look for list view, it is possible due to a recent feature that lets plugins have their own view files (the way Showtime uses to show the GUI), it means this view is a custom view and not from Showtime's source code, it has been developed by myself using as model some mockups from opium2k and the guidance of andoma in terms of widgets available.

One other biggest new feature is the new exclusive TMDB View, it allows you get a list of persons in the cast/crew of the movie, a list of trailers that redirect to Youtube plugin, a list of movies in the collection, a list of similar movies, search for entries in one page provided as Search in Navi-X googlecode that you may use to get access to videos like Behind the Scenes and others of the movie, and finally access to IMDB's Parents Guide for the movie, perfect to help build up nice nights plans for all family.

Requirements

  • Showtime v3.99.448

Installation:

1. If you have one of the latest Showtime version (as required by the plugin) and installed previously the previous plugin it should be updated to the newest version once andoma updates the plugin repository with the new version.
2. Access the Plugin Central inside Showtime to install the plugin.
3. Put the zip archive available (linked above) in the directory /installedplugins/

Special thanks to (Alphabetically):

  • Andreas Oman (also known as andoma), for creating and maintaining the best alternative to XBMC
  • Opium2k, for creating mockups of both Array and TMDB views that ended being improved to the current state of them
  • Tyrant, for Beta Testing the plugin as the development happened and for giving ideas in what could be added/improved

FAQ

How can I log in to navixtreme.com?
In settings page of the plugin there should be an option that says "Login to navixtreme.com" click that. If you used before the previous version of the version and logged in and set to remember the credentials, this process will automatically use that information and adapt to the new authentication method otherwise you'll have to write your credentials. After doing this you never need to click this option again, just by starting Showtime with the plugin enabled will authenticate you.

Where can I find facanferff, andoma, opium and Tyrant?
In the channel #showtime on irc.efnet.net.

What happens to my automatic reports the plugin creates?
If you have the setting for it enabled, once you find a processor not working (generally giving a message starting with "Processor error: "), the plugin will call immediately a website hosted by the plugin's developer that might use the URL, processor and error to debug the problem and fix if it applies. If you want to get information on the current status of a report contact facanferff (via the channel mentioned in this FAQ) and provide your user id and the report id.

The user id is what identifies an installation, it consists of a mix of alphanumeric character followed by your nickname if you're authenticated there. You may see your user id at the folder /settings/jsstore/navi-x-tracking_settings and locate the line that starts by saying "user_id" and the value between double quotes in the right side of is your user id. But if you're authenticated then in the same file you should find a line for the variable "username", so your final user id will be the previous string you obtained plus 1 underscore plus your username, e.g. 1234567890_qwert

The report id is a string that identifies a report and is unique per report, to obtain that value access the navi-x-reports_ids in the same folder as before and locate the line that contains in left side _, the string attached to it is the report id.

If you want to contact the developer to get the status of the report and if you know that the report is for a processor that was reported only that time you may just provide your user id and processor name.

Which reports get a higher priority?
The reporting system sets automatically a priority checking the url and processor in the test bed, if in that test it has success then it is given High priority. If the test also gives an error but different than the one you obtained, it will be given a Medium priority, otherwise it is given Low priority.

I'm a developer and would like to know about those exclusive features of the plugin's API, where may I find those information?
Shortly after the release of this version, facanferff will release a tutorial explaining all of those exclusive features.

I would like to report or suggest about something not related directly to processors, where can I do it?
You should use the official Bug Tracker website for the plugin available (at lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/navix) You don't need to provide your user id here.

Note: Reporting non working processors in this Web site will not give you a higher priority.

v1.1.5 Changelog:

After the release of Showtime Plugin TMDb v1.2.5, a new update to Showtime Plugin Navi-X is now available.

This version brings a new settings option that many users have been asking to set a new home page URL. This setting allows you to use your own PLX playlist or other PLX playlist without having problems with time-out that have been rather frequent with navixtreme.com

Changelog

  • Add: Setting option "Home Page URL" that allows user to change home page URL
  • Add: All items that are from navixtreme.com are labelled as so with "[NAVIXTREME]"

Thanks

  • andoma: for creating and maintaining Showtime
  • Tyrant: for Beta Testing my plugins

Special information

To allow a faster boot time of Showtime you may need to disable login in plugin's Settings.

Installation

Any Showtime v4.3.9 can find the update at Plugin Central.

The list of subtitles are now sorted based on user preferred languages

4.1.398

Fix a bug that made "Custom query" impossible to erase in the metadata editor. It would come back next time the item was scanned

4.1.397

Fix a crash that was caused by invalid markup tags in SRT files

Typically this would happen if the SRT file contained a subtitle entry with just one tag that was invalid. Now such invalid tags will be presented as normal text instead.
