Since I have upgraded to 8.4.1 Apple Trailers are not working, you an select a trailer and you get the loading message and then nothing it just goes away and nothing plays.

I am not even sure which log to look at to see what is happening, any idea on how to troubleshoot and fix?

Cheers

Start with the ~/appletrailer.xml and run one of the menu items from cmd line and see if you get any errors.

Found two issues:

1. When looking at the file ~/appletrailer.xml it is bleedingly obvious there is an issue, the trailer command uses && instead of &&
Code:
EXEC loading.sh && mplayer-wrapper.pl -fs -zoom -really-quiet -user-agent "QuickTime/7.6.2" -cache 16000 http://trailers.apple.com/movies/wb/batmanthekillingjoke/batmanthekillingjoke-tlr1_h640w.mov


2. Once that was fixed I then found that mplayer was missing libmpeg2, used pacman to install it.

Thus once both of these issues were corrected I was then able to play a trailer.

Went a little deeper into it and found the file: /usr/bin/myth_trailers_grabber had the errant command for issue 1 above, I replaced the appropriate && and then ran /etc/cron.daily/trailers to grab the trailers and check appletrailers.xml and it now has the right command. Go to the Apple Trailers menu and now find I get this error:
Code:
The menu file appletrailer.xml is incomplete.


Checking the appletrailer.xml file further everything looks fine, except it ends like this:
Code:
        <button>
                <type>VIDEO_BROWSER</type>
                <text>Marauders*VIDEO ERROR*</text>
                <action>EXEC </action>
        </button>

</mythmenu>


I would have created a bug for this issue except I can't seem to find where to create a bug these days.

Cheers and looking forward to hearing how to fix this issue.

The &amp;&amp; is correct encoding for the xml file. But to run it from the shell it does need to be &&. Change that back and you should be good. The issue for you was libmpeg2 not being installed. I will have to look deeper as to why it wasn't a dep of mplayer.

I have changed it back but still get the issue of the error of the menu item now being incomplete.

Since it is still incomplete it sounds like the grabber didn't get corrected and the cron run.

I also have the Marauders Video Error but I suspect that is a problem parsing the feed. However all the other videos still work here with that error.

It *is* a problem with the feed:
http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/home/xml/current.xml

Looks like the XML is not well-formed, due to a bad character in the Marauders description that's causing things to choke.

I logged it with Apple as a website issue, so we'll see if they can do anything about it.
