Inside addon series BOB Unleashed kodi Addon Great Developers.. Here is the first part of my look at the inside of the bob unleashed add-on. For this blog I’m looking at one of the newest addons on the scene.
This addon has the feel of the old bob addon. But there has been a total code overall. Midrall has worked tirelessly in the background, tweaking bugs, sending out updates for the testers to test and report back. One major change you will notice is Blue doesnt have a list any where now. She has decided to take a step back and learn more of the coding and helping to produce the scrappers that the addon uses. Blue also did the artwork that you see for each section. To contact blue click Here
There is some guys that work tirelessly in the background why not follow them on twitter, the dev that sorts out what the playlisters wants is midraal follow him on twitter here and over on noobs and nerds forum here.
Loading the Addon.
First we need to load on the add-on, you can find the install guide on the following blog click here to go to the guide.
Let’s have a look at what you are greeted with when you open the add-on. As you can see there are plenty of sections for you to dig your teeth in to.
There is something in this addon for everyone, we have live TV, TV shows, reality TV, Music, sports and help videos that have been done by dabutcher. Not only do you get this but you also get each devs section individually.
Below this screenshot I’m going to be covering the seven sections and the other sections will be covered in their own blogs as they are too big to be covered on here.
As you can see there is plenty of sections to this add-on. Below I’ll cover each section in turn.
Changing the addon.
But before I go in to each section I need first to why this addon has some unique features that no other addon has. To start with you can change how the addon runs. At the start of running the addon you will be presented with a request to run the wizard.
As you can see you get a yes/no option to run the wizard. Clicking on no will set up the addon to its default settings. So click yes.
Before i proceed let me give you a little background of what the metadata is. Metadata is the information for movies and tv shows. Different types of information is given, such as the movie/shows plot, actors/actresses staring in the film/show and even the air date. So lets carry on with the setup of unleased.
Next option is the chose meta data provider. You have the option of trakt or tvdb (TV database) to select one and click on the corresponding button.
You next get the option for selecting the metadata for the movies. This time its trakt and tmdb (the movie database). again choose an option by selecting one the buttons.
The next option you need to select is the selector type. You can choose either link selector or HD/SD. The link selector enables you to choose a link from a stream list,this is the type of choice you get in other options. By choosing the HD/SD option this turns the addon in to an one click addon.
As part of the wizard setup you can choose the type of theme that you have. They are all on the screenshot below. For this guide I have chosen default. Just click on your choice and the wizard will move on to the next part.
The next part is an option that i have not seen in any other addon. You can have animated gifs. This makes the icons used or all the sections have a rotating white lights go round the external part of the icon. I have been given a animated screenshot of the look when the gifs are on. If you have a low-end/low memory device I would suggest that this option in left off, so select no when running this option.
All of the above options can be turned off in the settings. So before i go in to the different parts of the addon i will cover the settings.
Not only does the gif support enable you to see the icon gifs. But also you will see some of the film or tv show thumbnails and fan art. will be animated. To see the first lot of these that have been introduced, check out the new releases section and thunders section. below are screen shots of some of this.
First section in the settings is the customization tab. In here you will see it has been split in to several different section. Display, meta info language, meta provider, choose default link, choose bob theme and enable gif. .
I will now give a brief description of each of these sections.
As you can see there are 3 different options here. Enable settings context item, enable trailer context item and hide help videos. the 1st two are options to include these settings on the context menu and the third hides the help video section on the main screen. below are screen shots of these options on the context menu.
Meta Info Language.
This gives you the option to change the language of the metadata. By default this is set to system. So if your device uses english then the info will be english. But you can change this to any of the languages on the list.
Here you can change the options for metadata. There is an option to disable the metadata dialog, click on the text to highlight the dot. Below this is the option to change the tv and movie metadata providers, from tvdb/trakt for tv and tmdb/trakt for the movies.
Default link provider.
When you click on the text you will be presented with a dialog box. You can select whether you want HD or SD quality links or for either to be played.
As you can see from the screenshot there are several different themes available. Below are screenshots of the other themes.
Here you will find 3 different sections. Unleashed new releases, val’s hot movies and caira’s at the movies. Below is a look at each section.
