New version crashes. Stabele version and earlier version from svn worked fine. Ooops. stable 0.2.4-2 crashes too! Messages:

All deps installed:

A file is missing somewhere. I'll double check if I didn't forget to commit a file


Building latest trunk also complains :

sudo python ./ build
running build
running build_py
file (for module periscope) not found
file (for module periscope) not found


The is missing from the plugin directory...


You can copy the from the root to the plugin directory (before or even after installation)...


I did what you suggested and now I can run
periscope --help

but it still crashes :

periscope The.Walking.Dead.S03E07.720p.HDTV.x264-EVOLVE.mkv

The version I've put on github seems to be an old one for some files.

I'll fix it in the next 24h.


Yup... It's broken ;)

For the time being, just use the tar.gz file from
It seems to work... (althou I have some issues with that one also...) But it downloads!

@patrickdessalle Thanks for the god work...


Yes, thanks! Appreciate it!


I've fixed the issue and the old code. I've tested it in a virtual env.

Does it work for you guys ?


Yes it does for me, thanks.


Works like a charm =)


Yup.. Works..

If I could suggest one more thing...
For the people not using Ubuntu ;)

How to install from source...

Extract the tar to a location and run:

sudo python build
sudo python install

Otherwise it's great... thnx..


The latest git version compiles fine AND works fine on Arch. Installed periscope-git from AUR. Great! Thanks a lot mate!!!
