Amazon App

Mon Jan 30, 2017 4:57 pm

Just tried setting up the Amazon app, and this is what I got in the log:

Code: Select all

1/30/2017 2:48:14 PM ParseAmazonCatalog Begin update scan... 1/30/2017 2:48:14 PM ParseAmazonCatalog Master database contains 13259 Movies and TV shows 1/30/2017 2:48:15 PM ParseAmazonCatalog Error at ParseAmazonCatalog at line #364 - SDID

I am thinking that it is still being worked on.

The backend scraper is working fine. Ran it over the weekend and it found 12,200 media titles in the Amazon database. Will release the new sample scenes real soon to support the updated Amazon UI. Have to make a small adjustment to myAgent so that it can launch and control the Amazon player.

Hey Dave, Amazon Video was just released up here in Canada. Any idea if the app will be compatible?

I will have to see if Amazon exposes the same media catalog to CA customers as in the US. In an ideal world they do and you will be able to use the app the day it gets released. If they go the path of Netflix and have a totally separate media catalog for each country then I am going to be forced to modify the backend scraper and maintain a separate CA media database. That will delay the the process for a bit. It takes about 15 hours to make a single scraping pass through the media catalog. In any event it will soon be available for CA too.
