Can anyone help me to get the movie trailers feature to work? I have no idea what it can or should do and unfortunately do not have the skill to program something myself.. Any help would be appreciated...

you have the Apple quicktime script?

if not go get it (its called the AQT browser)

also go get the quicktime dll's (part of the compatible codec pack that JayDee is kindly hosting link is in the sticky)

i assume you have all the required pyhon files and folder- if not also get that from JayDee's sticky

how do i link it to the movie trailers button on the skin?.. i can load it through scripts... but it doesn't do anything when I hit the trailers button... also when I try to watch a trailer it just locks up...

I just installed 09-03.. so I am assuming it has the newest.. I also download the codec pack you suggested.. Do the trailers have sound?

Would my router be blocking the streams? Possibly I need to forward some ports?

no port forwarding required-

i don't think mplayer pre5 is in the cvs- either compile it yourself using JayDee's tutorial (doesn't require xdk so all progs are avaiable) or get it from the official xbmc forum- Ezar (one of the devs) is hosting it- its in one of the posts in the development forum i think

my xbmc is in exile till the end of september so i'm probably not of much help on this topic

QUICKTIME INFO INCLUDED
UPDATE:
11-08-2004 added: working QuickTime dll's, that means we now have audio for QuickTime trailers using the QDMC/QDM2 audio codec (can be found in the codecs.rar i host a few lines up)

For ALL supported codecs in XBMC get this rar. Put them in the mplayer/codecs folder.

possibly mplayer pre5? - i was under the impression that if set up correctly pre4 would work ok

Devo2399 was that what worked for you?

if so- to quote myself
