Bot like activity & XBMC plugins

Post#1 » Mon Oct 03, 2011 8:27 pm

I am not server or network savy, but would addons for xbmc be causing bot like activity on the server because of the intensive scraping some of them do? I was just checking out one such addon at this link http://firstsearchblue.com/new-icefilms ... y-on-xbmc/ If these addons are detrimental to the server performance maybe there should be a sticky put up about these addons.

Hi fewolfhunter,

Yes. I think this could be a problem. If it does become one, I'm sure the connection/pageview settings will be tightened to block the offending ips. People will then find it necessary to find another library plugin.

Would this explain why the anarchintosh icefilms plug in no longer lists the actual episodes of tv shows on icefilms via xbmc? I throughly enjoy the plugin and hope it returns to normal use soon. I have no need for massive scraping, I am just interested in using it to watch my usual selection of tv shows and some movies through an easy interface without having to plug my comp into the tv everytime. I use appletv1, used to work like a charm, even provides optical audio.

It's a script problem....

From XBMC site...

download Default.py - here - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/40915480/default.py

and just put it in your plugin.video.icefilms folder how to get here depends what you are using Windows 7 or APTV2 serch for that folder and replace the Default.py with the one you downloaded

Apple Tv 2 - var/mobile/library/preferences/xbmc/addons/plugin.video.icefilms (same for Ipad or Iphone or IpodTouch)

Windows 7 - appdata/roaming/xbmc/addons/plugin.video.icefilms ( you need to have on " Show Hidden Files and Folders to get here )

And always Remember to thank ndeshmukh or trogggy or any one that helps and makes icefilms.info addon work and make it better and keep this always alive


This worked for me!
Now I've got a link... What the hell do I do with it?

Considering helping us find links? Please read this!
