All right stop, Collaborate and listen, Ice Films is back with my brand new invention.
Something grabs a hold of me tightly, Then I flow that a harpoon daily and nightly.
Will it ever stop? Yo, I don’t know, Turn off the lights and I’ll glow.
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal, Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.
Ice films baby Vanilla, Ice films baby.
So did you all think the Icefilms XBMC add-on was out for the count after the recent FBI worldwide crackdown on privacy? Yes I said privacy not piracy. Well the devs over at XBMCHub haven’t given up and neither has icefilms.info which is currently dusting off the events of the last couple of weeks and getting down to business as usual. So we are left again asking what does the future indeed hold for the XBMC icefilms add-on? Well developers aren’t giving up on this project yet! So stick with us here at HD420P and well gently nurture you through these SOPA infected times.
The answer is a new beta supporting rapidshare and 2shared links (oh I hope rapidshare is better/faster than I remember it being) Never the less the new beta has been pushed the the Icefilms development repo so you can try it out yourselves. Past additions remain such as download and play adding a buffering interlude before the media starts.
As usual here’s a quick video of the add-on in action.
As you can see the add-on isn’t perfect but its a development build and updates will be pushed through quickly, so keep you eye out for updates or just set XBMC to update add-ons automaticly. There seems to be a bug with the tvshownextaired script but no doubt this well be fixed in a later build. Let us know what you think of this new twist in the icefilms saga in the comments below.
