Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

This only worked for me the first time I tried it. Now I only get the names of movie theaters, but no show times.

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

I've also had mixed results with this. I suspect that it is getting its data on startup, and if it isn't available or is partially available, we get less than perfect results.

I always get the following error in my log when BM starts for this plugin:

12/02/2004 06:50:50 [Serialization] Encountered unknown attribute while processing MovieShowtimesSkin.xml: TextBoxMargins="0,0,0,275"

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

Actually that is why they are looking for new hobby developers...

Standard Message for anyone reading:

We are looking for some hobby developers to take on this code (as well as any of a few other plugins). The developer of course would get full ownership of the code and could do with it whatever they want (hopefully atleast fixing the noted bugs).

Anyway if that is of interest to anyone just send me a PM and I'll give you more details.

Unhappy Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

I'm having problems with this plug-in. After I download the file, I try double-clicking on it and I get an error in Shell32.dll. The details show this:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

Any ideas?

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

I'm starting to see some additional data (movies, theaters, etc) when this plugin comes up.

HOWEVER, I noticed (and this is kinda a big thing)... The showtimes are all WRONG.

I've got another question, as well... How do you uninstall a plugin? Not DEACTIVATE; I want to delete it.

Currently, you have to shut down BM and then remove the directory from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SnapStream\Beyond Media\Plugins

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

Brett - I am interested in fixing up this plugin... I am in development of a showtimes plugin for Meedio but have programmed it in a way to easily support other programs such as Beyond Media... but I am programming in Visual Basic .NET... is that okay with Beyond Media? How do I get more information to make a plugin for Beyond Media? My plugin also downloads movie posters and trailers for each movie...

-Jim

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

So, how do I get this thing installed? Do plug-ins not work with win2k?

I'm interested in knowing this as well. Did either of you guys find out of VB.NET is cool? In theory it should be as the CLR supports cross language compatability but...

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes

Since you're working on a new version, I'd love to see an "UPDATING..." or "WORKING..." window displayed while information is downloaded, etc.

Re: [plugin] Movie Showtimes (Dec 8 Update)

A few more notes about some of the new stuff:
-Quicktime Alternative is essential for playback of trailers. The standard Quicktime install from Apple.com will not work.

-Movies and Theaters are alphabetized correctly now

-The IP banning by yahoo lasts around a little over an hour (the good thing is since I was banned for awhile I added some extra code in case this happens)

-You can bounce back and forth between Theater Details and Movie Details by selecting an item in each list. (If you're viewing Theater Details, selecting a movie takes you to the movie details screen for that movie and vice versa.)

-Theater Deatils and Movie Details both keep a sort of "History" so if you're on Theater A, go to Movie B, then go to Theater C, then Movie Q, and finally Theater Y. The escape key will take you back to Movie Q, then Theater C, then Movie B, then Theater A.

-It currently only handles US zip codes, sorry.

-Posters & Trailers are saved inside the plugin folder, which is inside the Beyond Media folder under the Docs & Settings\All Users. Posters are typically 7KB- 20KB, while high quality trailers are 15-30MB each. Trailers and Posters are automatically deleted 7 days after their creation.

-Showtimes should all be correct now

-All showtimes should appear when loading from the disk cache.
