First and foremost, a HUGE thank you goes out to hotTamale and Jeromy (mopenstein) for helping me optimize my code, the result is a big increase in the speed of the script from the original beta/prototype, and the search function that makes finding videos that much easier and convenient.
-- Fixed everything that was broken, videos should work much more reliably now... although veehd.com seems to have problems streaming recently uploaded videos.
-- Category results can now be browsed in alphabetical order, recently added and popularity.
-- Video tags can now be saved as Categories.
-- This Script now has some options! Accessible from the PlayOn Settings Manager (work in progess)
-- Added "Check Size" folders under "Resolved?"
-- "Check Size" attempts to locate the video currently being transcoded by PlayOn and will report if the file has begun downloading. If it has started to download, you will be notified.
-- Includes fix for Videos not loading (veehd.com site change)
-- Folders have been organized and simplified
-- Now browses User's videos alphabetically
-- Can now view online users
-- Menus are now consistent
- Added "[Resolved?]" option
after selecting a video and receiving a "data corrupted" message, check this to see if the video was found by PlayOn. *this feature is in beta
- Added "New to DVD" folder.
- Added "Categories" folder.
- Added "Search for Tag" folder.
- Enabled search suggestions.
- Can now save uploaders usernames to a browsable list.
- Can now search for the title of a video from within the video's folder.
* Now requires libLuaDB.llf which should automatically be downloaded *
- Fixed non-showing preview images for flash movies.
Upgrading to VeeHD 1.5.x
1) Download the new VeeHD lua script and replace the old one.
2) You must delete the present veeHD_DB.txt file. A new one will automatically be downloaded on first run.
3) To keep your search bookmarks the script must have the same name as the old version e.g. VeeHD.lua (if you renamed the old script, change the new files name to that)
Tips for using VeeHD:
You will probably need to select the video twice in order to get the movie to play. Select the video once, wait about 60 seconds then select it again.
If a video stutters while playing, pause it and allow it to buffer. Then resume playback after a 5-10 minutes
Try to avoid using your internet for other things when watching video, VeeHD servers seem to drop connections easily.
Automatic updates occur when you first select the script, don't be alarmed if the script options don't immediately appear, its probably updating. Should take 30 seconds or less.
Creating a new database or updating the current one takes time so be patient
Browsing movies that start with a number or a symbol takes a little while so you may have to select the folder twice if you get a message like "There are no titles" or anything along those lines.
This has quickly become my favorite "channel". It works quite well and the range of content is great. There is definitely stuff here you will never find on your own. At least I wouldn't have. Thanks for the good work and I assume hours of programming required to pull off a channel this wide ranged in content and reliability!
There are a few times I couldn't connect to this video or that... I would have given it a four for that. But, the content makes up for it, since I could always find something just as interesting if I poked around. So for content, I give it a 5!
Keep up the good work. And please keep this channel updated!
Was reading dannytaylor1 review. This is same developer as wrote movshare, tvlinks. Excellent work, but I have had lots of trouble lately with this one.
Loved it when it was working, and the author does great work. Things have changed, doesn't work like it did, but that's probably on the server side. If you want something for free, don't complain when things change. Used to rate a 5, lower now because it doesn't work as reliably, but I can use tvlinks to get most of it (again, thanks to the author).
Your script sucks! Only a very small percentage of the movies actually work! Why don't you get together with the developers of MovShare, TVLinks, and IceFilms and ask them to show you how it's done! Seeing as these scripts work perfectly! VeeHD, it's time for another update! A MAJOR UPDATE! ;:^(
Sadly VeeHD stopped working again. Seems the only part of VeeHD that worked was the Animation category. So I altered the script to only show Animation. These load and play for the most part. Got rid of the VeeHD movie options & categories. Got really sick of those "Can't Play Content" error messages. Having scripts like "TV Links" and "Ice Films" aka MegaVideo, fills the void of not being able to watch VeeHD movies, VERY NICELY!
This script "VeeHD" and "Ice Films" are my two favorites! Sadly they weren't working for me... UNTIL I discovered that the vmc PlayIt Video Server was still loading and running automatically in the background under the "Services" options on my Vista laptop, long after I uninstalled the program from my computer. I disabled it and What Do You Know, ALL of my scripts are now playing perfectly! :^)
this is a great script and has some of the best TV shows ...but the only problem is the way its set up its almost impossible to find the TV show you want...if the tv shoes could be listed alphabetically you could find what you want..there is literally over 3000 or more tv shows on here and all the ones i tried work...just hard to get what you want
This is hands down the best Playon Script ever! My friends and I are amazed at the number of movies and how easy it is to use! Thanks for providing me with many, many, many hours of enjoyment! You Rock Big Time!
I am so excited to try this new script. Once again, all developers have been hard at work. Thank you!!! Thank You!!! Thank You!!! I recognize that the host site is one that offers high def and is ranked high...very good choice!
This script looks great, but I have a WDTV Live and everything I try to watch says it is a incompatible format. Any help would be appreciated. I would have placed this in the support forum, but every time post it doesn't show up. Thanks for any suggestions.
