Re: CBS.com (US Only)

CBS.com allows some shows to stream outside of the US. Examples include 60 minutes and (most) 48 Hours Mystery episodes. I review them regularly here in the Netherlands.

There is an issue with the plugin, however... I have noticed that CBS doesn't seem to be updating http://www.cbs.com/shows/48_hours/video/

For 48 Hours Mystery, CBS seems to be focusing their attention on http://www.cbsnews.com/video/48hours/ when posting new episodes.

I can't seem to get serviio to get the new shows from the updated URL

Any tips anyone?

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

Is there any way to make the plugin so that it plays the classic shows from the cbs website; they are under a subfolder named 'classics'. they fail with the naming convention for the plugin.

thanks.

Unfortunately this plugin doesn't work on cbsnews.com. They use a different method of loading up videos on their site. Looks like someones else has requested cbsnews.com as well.

Nice catch. Looks like I need to add classics, originals, and specials to the plugin. I'll try to get it updated this week.

Sorry, these use a different method of loading up videos. This will be a much bigger fix. Not sure when I will be able to get to it.

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

I have been having issues with this plug-in lately: it displays NO content. It recently worked and the only thing I have done is upgrade to Serviio 1.0.1.

Anyone else seeing this?

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

Same problem here, I upgrade to 1.0.1 and now I don't see any content, only the folders I used to have in the previous version. In video as well as photo. Not a single content file.

I now have double choices in the security settings (so 4 in total), neither works.

I was about to go PRO when I discovered that the security works only on a device basis, not folder or file based. That is useless for me. I want to secure certain types of movies, on our main TV.

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

I have not upgraded.
CBS worked last time I checked, probably about 1 month back.
Format was WebResource=http://www.cbs.com/shows/how_i_met_your_mother/video/

But as of yesterday, with no change to software or config, I am not getting any shows to appear.

When I played with the groovy file a bit, it seems to be correctly fetching the "loadUpCarousel" part.
http://www.cbs.com/shows/how_i_met_your_mother/video/
-becomes-
http://www.cbs.com/carousels/44/video/0 ... f9a/0/100/

But that's as far as I made it, after that I think we need a real groovy expert.
This is a WebResource, so maybe the groovy file is not compatible a (potentially new) CBS json format?

I have other Atom Feeds that work, no other Web Resources to try.
If I did have other WebResources, and they worked, I would suspect it was CBS has a new json format.

Is anyone working on updating this?

Really wish I had a stronger coding background/new groovy... Fall season starts soon!

Sorry I haven't implemented the classics yet, they use a totally different method.

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

Hi Mike,

Thanks very much for this plugin. I was using it on a daily basis to watch The CBS Evening News but, unfrotunately, CBS have recently started to upload this programme via their http://www.cbsnews.com/ website instead.

I saw earlier in this post that you've already mentioned how http://www.cbsnews.com/ use a different method for uploading their videos. I was just wondering if there might be any chance of creating a plugin to work for this too?

I'm currently able to get the programme via an RSS feed (http://feeds.cbsnews.com/podcast_eveningnews_video_1), but the quality is rather poor.

Many thanks,

(another) Mike

Re: CBS.com (US Only)

I've been using CBS plugin for some time without a problem. Now I'm not seeing any shows. Using Serviio Pro 1.0.1. I've updated to cbs.groovy version 2.0 (5,390 bytes) and rebooted.

URLs are: http://www.cbs.com/shows/the_good_wife/video/
and http://www.cbs.com/shows/60_minutes/video/

Source Type is set to 'Web Resource'

Neither show works. All other feeds seem fine. Any help is appreciated!
