[REL] Einthusan Channel (Indian movies)


#1

Einthusan.bundle

Plex Media Server plug-in designed for Einthusan.com/Einthusan.tv - Watch Latest Indian (Hindi and regional languages) movies


Einthusan

 


NOTE: The author of this plugin has no affiliation with Einthusan sites nor the owners of the content that they hosts.

Features:


  • Select by Language

  • Multi server playback support (not available when connecting via proxy option)

  • Categorized by Activity, Alphabetical, Year

  • Search with multi page support / Search Queue

  • Bookmarking

 

Plex Media Server:

  • Windows (Use PMS min. ver. 1.3.3.3148)

  • Linux (Ubuntu 14.04LTS) - requires 'xvfb' to be installed

  • Mac (Untested - please report)

Note: Some Mac/Linux distributions of PMS have a SSL/TLS issue - to circumvent it use proxy connection option under channel prefs.

 

Plex Clients:

  • Plex Home Theater

  • Plex/Web

  • Samsung Plex App

  • Android M (Samsung Galaxy S6)

  • iOS (Apple iPhone6)

 

Important Notes:


  • Search requires a language, if searching from the Main Menu the Apps default language is used. If language based Search is required use the search after the Language selection menu.

  • Search Queue query terms are associated with language used for Search

 

Preferences/Options setting:

  • Language: Selects the default language preference for Movies section to show. However other language sections can also be selected via the in plugin navigation menu.

  • Use proxy for connection: Some Mac/Linux distributions of PMS have a SSL/TLS issue - to circumvent it use proxy connection option under channel prefs.

  • Preferred Location: Sometimes Einthusan may serve a movie from a distant server. Chose a server closest to your location for a more steady movie playback experience.

  • Python directory (eg. C:\Python27): Set path to Python (not required if their paths are defined under system's env. variables)

  • Firefox directory (eg. C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox): Set path to Firefox (not required if their paths are defined under system's env. variables)

  • Enable Debug Mode: Generates a more verbose log file recommended when providing logs for troubleshooting

 

Known issues and future development:


  • Currently does not have login support for premium access. Login support does not seem to add any additional features. If that is not the case please let me know.

  • Multi server playback support is not available when connecting via proxy option. This will get resolved once Plex updates their PMS for Linux/MacOS.



When reporting issues please include the channel log file com.plexapp.plugins.einthusan.log (https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/201106148-Channel-Log-Files).

I have tested in AppleTV3, works flawless !!

Amazing job!

But i am slightly dissapointed that i am only seeing Hindi, i guess you have filtered it that way? 

 i want to see Telugu movies as well, that would be great!!a

Mentioned under Features in the first post:

Select by Language (under Preferences)

I'll move it to page menu in the next release since some clients dont have access to Preferences.

Thanks so much for your fast response.
So looks like there is no "preferences" in AppleTV, however i tried in my computer's browser, i was able to change the languages.

I have tried all filters and they all work fine except "Telugu" (there is also a typo spelled as Telegu), when Telugu is selected, it gives a mix of Tamil and Hindi but not Telugu.

Hope its fixable,.,, sorry to bug you...

and thanks a lot...

Great app CA! This makes it all seem way too easy :)

Btw.. I see that the videos dont play full screen ... is there a way to change that? Tested on windows PC and plex app on samsung smart TV ... videos play in a windowed mode but not full screen...

Thanks!


#9

Never mind.. looks like a glitch in the samsung app... works fine in roku ;)


#10

@sridhanushk

Thanks for the feedback !
Btw, try the green button on the Samsung remote when using the Samsung App > Aspect Mode and see if other settings work for you.

Cheers,
CA

Any help or suggestions please.


#13

Seems like the website has changed. Will look into it very soon.


#14

The issues seems to be with the URL Service https://github.com/plexinc-plugins/Services.bundle/blob/master/Contents/Service%20Sets/com.plexapp.plugins.einthusan/URL/Einthusan/ServiceCode.pys
I will request @sander1 to take a look into it.

Thanks for reporting.

Release Version 0.03 (Nov 29, 2015)

I have not heard back from @sander1 regarding the URL Service for Einthusan that is distributed with Plex, so have put in an alternate URL Service.

can u test using another client ?

I have so far tested (played videos) using PHT, PlexWeb, iPhone6, Android 5.1.1 and Samsung Plex App 2.03.

  • iPhone seemed to have problem with using Search (needs further testing).
  • Some might experience issues viewing their Bookmarks, if so please let me know.
