    • Hey! I will tell you right now that we don't want to sell anything, and as far as I am concerned, there's nothing to sell. Yes, CinemaVision has been incorporated, but that's not for nefarious reasons, mostly taxes.  We've briefly engaged with Plex and Emby to provide CinemaVision functionality in their applications, but have not pursued it further than a quick introduction. We stopped the conversation to give us some time to add in some pretty cool features. Really, our aim is to make it easy for anyone who wants the features we add to be able to use them without much effort. Simply, we think CinemaVision is pretty cool and we want other people to geek out with us. All that said, we're absolutely happy to help with integration for any platform. If OpenPHT is built from Kodi, it should natively be able to work with the add-ons. All it really needs is to use VideoPlayer, or change the player to work in the same way that VideoPlayer works like the developers of DSPlayer did. What we want to avoid is changing the code in CinemaVision from platform to platform, which isn't always easy, but it makes it cheaper for us to manage and pay for development. Let us know if you need any help drumming up interest!
    • I have seen a previous request to integrate CinemaVision into Plex.  Given Plex's current direction to monetize everything, and provide worthless features like news, that is extremely unlikely to occur.  The best case scenario is that they buy you guys   Which is also the worst case scenario, as they would only have the integration on certain apps, get a minimum viable product out the door, and promptly move on to something else, ignoring Cinemavision from a support standpoint. However, there could be a backdoor way to use CinemaVision with a Plex server and client - OpenPHT.  OpenPHT is a community driven fork of Plex Home Theater, which happens to be built off of Kodi.  It is feature rich, customizable and supports many feature and capabilities that the official Plex client for windows does not.  I recently switched to OpenPHT from my Roku clients, due to it's limitations (primarily around Plex and Roku's inability to play DTS-HD.MA 7.1 audio.) The OpenPHT developers are currently working on version 2, which will be built of a new version of Kodi.  Now seems like a perfect time to integrate OpenPHT and Cinemavision  I have posted a feature request over at the OpenPHT section of the Plex forums, to drum up interest from that side.  https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/296492/feature-request-cinemavision-integration/p1?new=1  
    • Hi Ragnarok, Thanks for your answer. Good to know that this API exists, so when I do everything right it should work. So far I did not succeed. :-/ When I use the example from the link (I changed the sequence name to the one that is actually available in my enviroment) the sequence editor comes up, but playback of the Sequence does not start. Is it supposed to work to sart the playback of the sequence with that API call, or did I get this feature wrong and it just starts the sequence in the editor? What does the id key refer to? { jsonrpc: '2.0',
        method: 'Addons.ExecuteAddon',
        params: { addonid: 'script.cinemavision', params: [ 'adult' ] },
        id: '1' } Best regards,
    • Right now, all the CinemaVision Service Add-on can do is run content updates in the background without any interaction from you. We're working on adding all kinds of features to it, like the ability to make CinemaVision your default when you play content, scheduling the start of your Sequences, and more.
    • We're compiling a list of all of the reported bugs for Kodi 18 and adding them to our issues list for development. That thing grows nearly every day. If you do decide to fix some bugs yourself, feel free to post the fixes to our GitHub.
