v0.9.8 update + website update
Great news! The addon has been updated to version 0.9.8. A lot of changes have been made. I have been working approximitly 50 hours on this, hopefully it has been worth it.
The most noteworthy changes are:
- Add pre-configured movie & music video playlists within the addon. (This functionality is available to donors only atm). Just browse in the addon, click and the playlist is added to your local configuration.
- Added Movie support. You can now also add YT videos to the movie library of Kodi. It can even search imdb to see if the movie can be officially found and act accordingly.
- Added GMT offset. If a youtube channel updates its videos at for example 18:00 GMT+2, you can now set this offset in the addon to compensate for your timezone.
- Added Reverse option. For (small) playlists that are sorted oldest -> newest instead of newest -> oldest there is now an option to reverse the order of the playlist. This option should only be used if the playlist does not contain a huge amount of videos or if there is a playlist available sorted newest -> oldest.
v0.9.8 also fixes the bug that prevented videos with a '&' in the title from playing (you need to refresh the playlist). A lot of other (small) bugfixes have been made.
Youtubelibrary.nl has recieved some updates as well. You can now also browse pre-configured movies & music video playlists besides tv playlists! It has been made easier to see which language a playlist belongs to. The readibility of the site with white backgrouds has been improved a lot. The music video playlists index has a different look then the movies & tv index.
I'm very curious to what you guys think. Please let me know in the comments section below :D!
