All is working well on my side thanks for the fix :). By the way if we play a tv show via xbmc does scrobbling support work if we have the xbmc trakt plugin?

If I knew what the trakt plugin was or what "scrobbling" is I could give you a propper answer... but solely based on that, I would have to with NO :D

thanks for the feedback

Trakt scrobbling allows XBMC to tell Trakt the show you are currently watching as well as what you have currently watched and allows it to be added to bbcode/html for forums, blogs and signatures. This is somewhat similar to the way last.fm works with music. It is a great addition and would be great to see pms add this function. After some testing with shows it seems that the scrobbling does not work via pms-xbmc and also noticed that it doesnt work when streaming via XBMC. The plugin for trakt and xbmc can be found here http://trakt.tv/downloads/xbmc. By the way im not asking you to add this feature just maybe something to look into if it catches your interest. Either way thanks for this plugin it works like a charm :)

Interesting. Why I would like the whole world to know what tv show I'm watching... I don't know :?: but who am I to judge ;)
of the top of my head, I don't see this feature ever being part of this plugin as it is beyond the scope. But I'm pretty sure it could be done if those scrobbling services have a public api. Who knows... If enough people shout loud enough , I might just look into it... maybe ;)

Hi does the plugin support playback for mkv's? I have XBMC setup to stack and my files are named part* inside a folder with the movie title. I don't know if maybe that is what is affecting playback or not but when i select the folder in the plugin I get the error <File Is Missing>. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

**edit**
Ok so I found that the plugin was loading an old DB file. Some of the movies are till giving me the <file is missing> error though. And some of the movies show other movies within the folder. Some DB information is listed withing the folder listing such as codec being used and screen resolutions. If you would like I could take some screen shots with my phone that would help you better understand the issue related to the folder listings.

The plugin does not care about file types, it only locates the file in the XBMC db file and serves it up to PMC.

I haven't tried using split movies, don't know how XBMC handles it, so it's something I will have to look at.

If you don't mind please log the issue here and zip and attach your db file if it's not too big
