Topic: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Check out the latest release of the Next Episode Kodi Add-on here. Download it and install it from the zip file.

Once the add-on is well tested and polished - it'll be submitted to the official Kodi add-on repository.

Here is what the add-on does:

1) on initial startup, it'll sync all your TV Shows and Movies to Next Episode
Shows and Movies on Kodi but not on Next Episode will automatically be added to Next Episode.
All episodes and movies from the Kodi library will be set to Acquired to Next Episode.
All watched episodes and movies will be set to watched on Next Episode.

2) on each library update, new movies and shows will be added to Next Episode (if not yet there) and will be set to Acquired

3) when you finish watching an episode or a movie - it'll be automatically marked watched on Next episode.

Let us know about any issues you encounter, or requests and suggestions for features you may have!

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Installed and logged in. I then watched an episode of Elementary on Specto addon and its not been marked as watched. Is there something I need to do?

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Please report issues either here or in the news comments - but not both smile

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

I tried the same with The Flash, did not update as watched... do I have to sync my files first or what. The lack of instructions got 'you know what stuck in the fan' smile

Remember that it is only a beta version. When reporting issues please provide a Kodi debug log as a link to a pastebin site: http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Easy. Issue reports without logs will be ignored - see the quote above.

Initial library synchronization is strongly advised but not strictly necessary. New video items should be updated automatically. Updating information to next-episode.net is supported only for Kodi media library. Addons are not supported because video items in them do not have necessary metadata.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Daemonius - did you mark it watched from the menu or did you watch the episode and Kodi marked it watched by itself?

And no, you don't need to sync the library first, it should automatically sync everything watched from the moment you logged in with your site credentials, but it won't work if you manually mark the episode watched in Kodi.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Hi,

first of all thank you very much for your work. I hoped for a very long time that someone would write an addon for kodi smile

I encountered three problems with the addon.

The first one i could solve by manually adding romanvm's PyXBMCt addon. It is listed in the addon.xml to be imported but this didn't work for some reason. I couldn't find the addon inside kodi, so i got the last version from https://github.com/romanvm/script.module.pyxbmct. After that the addon asked me to log in on kodi startup and the log in was successful.

After that the addon asked me if i wanted to sync my library with n-e. I chose yes and the sync started. It threw an error but continued. After the error no more entries were written to kodi.log and after 5 minutes i killed the kodi process.
here is the error:

19:31:36 T:4348   ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<--
                                             - NOTE: IGNORING THIS CAN LEAD TO MEMORY LEAKS!
                                            Error Type: <class 'ssl.SSLError'>
                                            Error Contents: The read operation timed out

The line before was the whole movie db in one request which was 21131 characters long. So maybe it was too big?

When I started Kodi again it didn't ask for another sync and i have a lot more movies in n-e. so i think the sync was successful and maybe the addon just didn't get a response from the n-e api.

The third problem was that the first show i watched with the addon activated was not marked as watched on n-e. But the second show was marked as watched.
Here both processes in the kodi.log:

first show:
20:10:27 T:8620  NOTICE: next-episode: data sent:
                                            {'user': {'username': '%USER%', 'hash': '%PW_HASH%'}, 'tvshows': [{'season': '1', 'episode': '11', 'thetvdb_id': u'295837', 'watched': '1'}]}

seocnd show:
21:37:41 T:8620  NOTICE: next-episode: data sent:
                                            {'user': {'username': '%USER%', 'hash': '%PW_HASH%'}, 'tvshows': [{'season': '3', 'episode': '13', 'thetvdb_id': u'263365', 'watched': '1'}]}

The first show obviously threw an error with thetvdb_id in the message.
I hope this helps smile

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Can Kodi and this add-on be used with a Roku?  I searched the Kodi site and there are no useful results.

Can Kodi be used with an analog TV?

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

jon - the error with thetvdb id is now fixed, this show will sync properly from now on

As for the other - please post the full log to http://xbmclogs.com/ so that romanvm can look into it.

Having the full log is critical ...

I logged in to the add-on, watched The Flash from start to finish. It got the check mark. Looked at the tracking page, episode still there as unwatched.

Will try again later today with another show.

Not a bug, the video does not belong to Kodi media library.

I guess we need to clarify things: the addon works only with the Kodi medial library. Videos that are not added to the media library are not supported simply because they do not have necessary metadata to correctly classify them as movies or episodes.

Ok, that clarifies things... I shall try again.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Hi santah,

i think the "thetvdb-id" of the show The Night Of (https://next-episode.net/the-night-of) is missing. On every media library update the addon throws an error:

Data update error! Please report it to next-episode.net.
Failed movies: none
Failed TV shows: 310516

Could you please update the show info?
Thanks smile

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Why am I only finding this out right now?  Sounds amazing!  Long-time Kodi/XBMC user here.  I kept on searching the Kodi repo for a add-on for next-episode.  Have been using TVShowtime but I find that their web interface is too resource intensive.  They also don't auto-add shows from Kodi to the user's database. It sounds like you do.  You have a simple straight-forward interface without resource hogging graphics.

Thank you for doing great work and always coming out with new features and improvements.

Will this add-on work without a membership?  I'd like to try it out. I haven't paid since without Kodi support, I wasn't using this page fully. Also willing to be a beta tester. On permanent disablity so while the desire to pay is there, the ability isn't.

Also, my Kodi Hard Drive is filling up and I will have to move some shows onto another hard drive and "archive" them. Does NE have that feature?  TVST does, but there isn't much meat behind the implementation.

Also, your website has been great for discovering new shows by listing Season 1 shows along with my followed ones. Is there a way to display/not display certain channels/countries so I don't get a bunch of strange show listings?  We are a global community, so I do appreciate being able to discover shows from all over the world, but I'd also like to choose which countries/channels and genres show up.

Would love a Kodi users forum here.  I don't use streaming add-ons that are getting all the bad press lately.
Also use Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. I don't see how those shows could automatically be logged but we can still track those right?
