Re: Syfy.com Plugin

Yes I am also having trouble. Worked great up until a few months ago. I am new to these plugins but I have been trying to troubleshoot it. It appears very similar to the issue in viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5228&start=30 as it is unable to get the file info. I am wondering if it might be related to security because I on the webpage I am seeing references to CleanUrl and HashUrl.

The serviio log shows.

2012-12-22 06:40:27,732 WARN [FeedUpdaterThread] Failed to retrieve online item information for http://syfyhd-f.akamaihd.net/z/NBCU_Syf ... 4_1696.mp4. It might not play.

And I see that There is some code for Akamai handling in the SVTPlayWebResourceExtractor so maybe the SyFy.Groovy plugin needs to be recoded to account for some issues with Akamai? If anyone reads this and has more experience with this please chime in. Or if this needs to be posted to a different forum, please let me know.

Maybe the plugin creator will see these comments but I will troubleshoot and learn in my spare time.

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

Well, the error looks like the plugin isnt loading. I deleted the old one, copied the new one, and stopped - restarted serviio service. After that I added haunted collector as a web resource and forced the library update. I was able to get the available videos whereas I was unable to before.

Tried that apart from adding the resource after a reboot so will try that.

Thanks for your input.

EDIT

The folder appears onscreen now but nothing inside. Log shows this

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

Actually I have just tried playing the videos in my browser and I keep getting "content not available", it may well be a regional block as I am in the UK.

Add proxy support :-)

You can also use other proxy server. Open syfy.groovy in an editor and change the variables:

final PROXY_HOST = '69.197.132.80'
final PROXY_PORT = 8089

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

Hello everyone! I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but the below feeds that I entered aren't working for me.
BTW - I'm new so go easy on me ;-)

I have the syfy groovy plugin under plugins...
This feed however does work: http://www.syfy.com/videos/Face%20Off/Full%20Episodes

non-working - no folder and no ep listing:
http://www.syfy.com/videos/Exit/Full%20Episodes
http://www.syfy.com/videos/Ghost%20Hunt ... 20Episodes
http://www.syfy.com/videos/Destination% ... 20Episodes

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

If you have one feed working then it is probably the formatting of the other URLS. From your list I have these that are working fine for me.

http://www.syfy.com/videos/Fact%20or%20Faked%20Paranormal%20Files/Full%20Episodes

http://www.syfy.com/videos/Haunted%20Collector/Full%20Episodes


Then I added this one as new and restarted the server. It poulated and streamed just fine.
http://www.syfy.com/videos/Paranormal%20Witness/Full%20Episodes


All I can suggest is look for typos and make sure it is a web resource.

Thanks for the reply. I know the URL's are typed correctly because I just did a copy/paste either from the syfy website or from serviio plugin site...also copy/paste.

As long as it's a syfy plugin is in the dir, in theory any syfy show should work, correct?

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

The serviio plugin site has incorrect urls, that is why I placed my posted URLs in [quotes]. My URLS are from the SYFY site. Only other thing is hat sometimes I need to restart the serviio service and serviio console. Other than that you'll need to look in the log and see what error is being generated when pull fails.

Ah...the site itself has the wrong URLs! Thanks for that...I went online to the syfy site and entered the url's from there. I'll load it up when I get home and see if that made a difference. Thanks again for replying and helping

Re: Syfy.com Plugin

I'm not sure where the OP is so I took a crack at it myself. Syfy seems to have inconsistent xml format for one of their files, so I changed the parsing to use RegEx instead of XMLParser.

This returns the correct m3u8 file every time, but it won't always play on my media players. I'm not sure if the format of the m3u8 file is a problem for Serviio, but it plays fine for me in VLC.

Let me know if it's working for you.
