I've created a wife-requested HGTV plugin, giving access to the full episodes available for streaming from HGTV.com. It's my first attempt at a Plex plugin, and there is some left undone -- like the seekbar/rewind/ff not working -- but I've made this early version available at http://wiki.plexapp.com/index.php/HGTV in case anyone else is interested.

I bet my wife will be happy about this one. I'll try it out and let you know what I think.

Thanks for the effort! :)

Hi- My wife will be so excited when I show her this.

Unfortunately I am unable to get it to work. Choosing a show will generally not do anything and occasionally an Error dialogue reports "Playlist playback aborted The original fie may have moved, been deleted or is currently unavailable."

Is this just me?

Weird. I tried a sampling of almost all the shows and none of them work. Any ideas?

My wife will thank you - especially when I cut the cable. I'll give it a go tonight.

oh oh. this is BIG.

Will try it right away. Thanks

EDIT : So far it works great. Tried with House hunter , Color splash and Curb appeal. Pause/Play works , didnt try forward , rewind.

(just a note to others , this is yet another US only plug in )

Fast Forward and Rewind aren't part of the SWF player on the site, so no. But thanks to the fixed site config from Isaac, you can skip forward and backwards. (Left/Right arrow keys)

I tried about 5 shows and for all of them I either got nothing, or only an audio stream. Am I doing something wrong?

It was working for me but that's all I'm getting now. :(

Likely a simple fix, I'll look into it when reviewing for the App Store.

There's a new version (0.4) available to download from the wiki page. HGTV had changed the name of the SWF they use to play the video, but the plugin should now be more tolerant of minor changes like that.
