Giant Bomb Channel


#1

Has the Giant Bomb channel been permanently discontinued? I assume so, since all videos stopped working for me and it is no longer available for install in the plugin directory or at https://github.com/plexinc-plugins, but I can't find any one discussing it so perhaps I was the only person using it :)


#2

With no active maintainer it had been sitting broken in the Plugin Directory for ages. After such a long period of time of being broken without anyone interested in fixing it’ll get axed.

It was working fine until the last week or so. Is there an archive of the code anywhere?

No, you weren’t the only one using it :confused: I’m so bummed that it’s no longer available as now I have to manually download any Giantbomb video I want to watch on TV.

fwiw if anyone still has a copy and wants it to (sort of) work; if you go to settings->web->Internet streaming->quality and chose “maximum” things works as you’d expect at least on the web client; that would lead me to believe transcoding is breaking things, i dont have time currently to figure out what’s broken and given that documentation for plugin dev (whilst available) is a bit cumbersome as long as my current solution works (and I dont find something else I want to add badly enough that some other platform doesn’t already have so I’m basically forced to throw myself against the wall that is lugin doc/dvelopment here I suspect it’;ll stay broken :expressionless: but figured I’d let folks know that there is a work-around as long as setting internet streaming to max doesn’t break ps4/amazon/phone or whatever device you stream to.
